In the next few months, I am finally moving out of my childhood home, a place that has always been the source of very complicated and painful feelings for me. I haven't tried my hand at poetry for a long time, but this felt like a good time to try again. This cage has … Continue reading Almost Free
Day 17: Something that feeds your soul. It is ironic and serendipitous that this should be the prompt that brings me back, and I slowly trudge my way out of a deep dark pit, crawling my way through the muck. I haven't had internet for months now. I am writing this on a semi functional … Continue reading #LoveMe Challenge Day 17: Something That Feeds Your Soul
I am back on an old medication, but now at a higher dosage, and it's a doozy trying to get my body to acclimate to it. So, my sleep/wake cycles are completely fucked up at the moment, and I'm still a bit foggy. Life has also been so non-stop busy that I haven't found the … Continue reading Adjusting

Disclaimer-esque thingy: Feedback and Reciprocation: A Question is a post that is an important follow up post to this one. I recently enabled the "Ratings" feature on my blog, giving a thumbs up or thumbs down arrow on each post, for each reader to basically up-vote or down-vote certain content. While this blog is an outlet for … Continue reading Ratings and Feedback and Reciprocation, Oh My!
I am both the moth and the flame. An Anonymous Outsider
I just hit 100 followers! This is honestly a milestone I never thought I would see. The idea that even one or two people find what I have to say worth reading still kind of surprises me, let alone that there are 100 of you now! As a thank you to each of you, I … Continue reading Milestones: 100 Followers! Meet and Greet!
I've been trying to figure out how to go about "Choosing My Own Path" (that's a link to the entry explaining what the heck I'm talking about).
