Things my Dad used to say

“DON’T SLAM THE DOOR!”-He yelled this because slamming the front door was causing it to break even more than it already was. “Ha, I Bugs Bunnied/ Scooby Doo-ed you.” -He said this after he usually yes/no tricked us. “I’m just saying is all.” “I’m telling mom you said those two words.” –I don’t remember what […]

Budgeting over the years!

I wanted to make this post mainly so I could see how much I’ve changed, budgeting-wise, over the years. Also, I never liked the stigma over not talking about how much you make. If you have a problem with someone being paid more than you, 9/10 it’s usually because they have more experience. At least, […]

Friendiversary and NERDtorch Cafe!

Yesterday, Nickie G and I went out for our unofficial Friendiversary of 10 years! We say unofficial because 1) it’s not technically our friendiversary date and 2) we only realized we’ve been friends for 10 years about halfway through dinner.

Is depression a form of molasses?

Because I can practically feel it taking over the blood in my body. Everything feels so slow, even the amazing experiences I’ve had, today. I’ve been wanting to make content all day but every time I type up something, I just want to chuck my laptop across the room. Nothing I type feels good! I […]

Have you heard of Maladaptive Daydreaming?

Between the ages of 5 and 10, I lived in a very old house where there are a few indentations in the walls from when I used to lightly but repeatedly bang my head while I daydreamed. I later found out, through a night’s worth of research, that this was a common symptom of something […]
