How are birthdays supposed to go again?

16 June 2017

Do I blog birthdays? How is this all supposed to go again? Does this mean I’m getting old? Tuesday was my birthday, and to celebrate turning 33… I did pretty much nothing. Ok, that’s not 100% true, but still. This was pretty much one of the most low-key (ie, kind of boring) birthdays I’ve had […]

How to Survive a Hysterectomy

6 June 2017

Important disclaimer and such: I am in no way a medical professional and none of this should ever replace actual medical information. Pretty sure you all already know that, but just putting it out there. One week ago today, I was rolled into an operating room and woke up with one less internal organ than […]

Grumpy AF

23 May 2017

So I hinted at this in my last post, but yeah, I’m maybe not adjusting as well as I would have hoped to having roommates. A few days ago, I thought I’d try maybe writing down any grievances or annoyances I had, hoping that maybe once I named them I could deal with them logically. […]

Currently… (the “apparently I am a curmudgeon and hermit” addition)

20 May 2017

Feeling: Like crap. And tired. I was supposed to get my last (as in, also last ever) Depo shot last week. However, I wasn’t able to work out a ride to the pharmacy for a while, and when I did there were at least 5 people waiting inside and 4 cars lined up at the drive […]

Saying Goodbye to My Uterus: it’s really happening

11 May 2017

I’ve been looking at this blank screen for hours. And frankly I’ve been trying to figure out how I would write this post for months now. Regardless, in three weeks, I’ll be having a hysterectomy. None of it feels real at the moment. It completely hasn’t sunk it yet. This was kind of a long […]

Currently…

25 April 2017

Apparently I haven’t done a “currently” post in a long time. Though, as typically, it doesn’t feel like much is going on in my life, but there is a constant flow of many moving parts. *Thanks to Lacey for the realization that bitmoji are available on chrome, and also piquing my curiosity to create myself in […]

Where resting had tricked me into thinking I’m healthier than I am

19 April 2017

One of the deceptive things about spending all my time at home is that it makes me feel like I’m doing pretty well, health-wise. Let’s face it, I’m not pushing myself each day and letting my body get much needed rest. However, when I finally get out and try to do something? I’m reminded pretty […]

For the eaters: Cajun chicken with a one-pot fettuccini alfredo

29 March 2017

As I’ve mentioned, I’ve been finding joy (or I guess maybe stability and comfort) in cooking lately. Because it feels like the only exciting thing going on in my life right now, it’s sort of flooded my instagram feed. I never really expected it to become a foodstagram account, but at this point I’m ok […]

How I realized my obsessive computer habits were turning me into a monster

27 March 2017

I didn’t really realize it before, but I had some pretty obsessive tendencies when it came to my laptop and its setup. In my life, I’m a complete neat freak or anything, but things have their places and that’s sort of where they belong. And as I sort of relaxed a little on that, apparently […]

Cooking my way through depression

23 March 2017

With everything that’s been going on — leaving school, not working, car broken down, health problems — it’s not really surprising that I’m not doing well mentally or emotionally. There’s a lot going on, and most of it hasn’t been great. I’m not unfamiliar with depression, though. Nor anxiety. Actually, one thing that sort of has been […]
