Amish fiction is the kind of fiction I read when I want something wholesome, old and filled with drama and tropes. I haven’t read it in a while, because I realized I preferred the stories based on reality that are told in movie form, because of certain common Amish fiction tropes. 1.

How the f*ck should I know? Last I checked, it’s 2019.Continue reading "What does your husband think of your blog?"
I’m super into pop culture references and puns. I find them humorous and a great way to express personality without going too “out there”, while also occasionally being cryptic as hell in a way that only those who know it will know (e.g. Degrassi references or calling myself a Gladiator/referring to Olivia Pope). Mad Blog […]Continue reading "Mad Libs-style blog prompts from pop culture, puns, etc."
An ancient post by Helga Weber about the uselessness of lifestyle bloggers — and, really, lots of people on the internet and offline who think all bloggers do is perpetuate their family drama and share listicles on useless things (like how to spend your Saturday morning sans cartoons) — grinds my gears.

I’m a vampire: I look pretty much the same since, like, a decade ago — more.

I didn’t expect butterflies and rainbows, but I expected things to be easier this far in. I’m 18 months […]Continue reading "It’s okay to be just okay."

I’ve been on a quest for bloggers like me. I love my blog friends and readers, but since coming to terms with my sexuality not as an ace but as a lesbian, I’ve been itching for community. More specifically, I’ve been itching for fellow active lesbian bloggers who are not so big that they cannot […]Continue reading "Where are all the lesbian bloggers? + other queries in my quest for representation in the blogosphere"
I am not fond of audiobooks, but I decided to indulge myself after listening to a sample because Karissa Vacker’s voice was the right amount of sensory input, despite similarities to the Texan accent.
