I must confess: I got mutton to say this week. I'm on vacation. I won't even attempt to pull the wool over your eyes that this is one of my photos - though it certainly could be given the backdrop I'm looking at. I'm on vacation. I can't help but want to ram this point … Continue reading Where’s “Wool”-sie #8: New Yearling, New Ewe
Where’s Whoopsie #7: Merry Christmas to All and May You All Be Alright!
Twas the Night Before Christmas and in her flat on tenth floor, Lav claimed indifference to doing her chores. Compression stockings were hung in the bathroom with care . Oh, who are we kidding? They showed wear and tear! The kitty was nestled in laundry unfolded, Knowing her owner hadn't the heart to scold her. … Continue reading Where’s Whoopsie #7: Merry Christmas to All and May You All Be Alright!
*Press It*: A One Word Sentence
"The proposed tax reform package stakes out America’s bid to become the most unequal society in the world, and will greatly increase the already high levels of wealth and income inequality between the richest 1% and the poorest 50% of Americans. The dramatic cuts in welfare, foreshadowed by the President and Speaker Ryan, and already … Continue reading *Press It*: A One Word Sentence
Blogmas 2017 Christmas Tag
Happy Holidays! This is not a blog award post, per se, but the tag is the closest I can currently conceive to categorize it among similar get-to-know-you type posts. A Christmas tag is naturally limited in time to reply, so I will apologize in advance to one of the bloggers I tagged in this post … Continue reading Blogmas 2017 Christmas Tag
The Religious Wronged (a #metoo story)
I’ve been seeing a lot of posts talking about both the recent spate of sexual harassment/abuse allegations against Hollywood/political officials and how difficult the holidays can be for people with mental health challenges. I feel a little guilty that I’m fortunate enough to be able to opt out of half of the holiday problem. From … Continue reading The Religious Wronged (a #metoo story)
Failing at Failing Forward by Succeeding Anyway?
Another blogger, with a much bigger following than mine, has a contact me notice that you can request she review your blog. She's a professional editor for her day job. This should be right up my alley. However, she very clearly specifies that bloggers should prepare for constructive criticism if they request a review. I … Continue reading Failing at Failing Forward by Succeeding Anyway?
Where’s Whoopsie #5: Like Red Before The Bull$hi7 (Er, bull. Er, cow, as the case may be.)
I write anonymously. I write anonymously because I am aware of what the consequences could be at my work if everyone - including my boss who hates knowing any personal information about any employees - knew my inner thoughts and challenges. I write anonymously because my trauma history isn’t mine alone, and I don’t want … Continue reading Where’s Whoopsie #5: Like Red Before The Bull$hi7 (Er, bull. Er, cow, as the case may be.)
Hey Dysautonomia International: My anxiety is only “all in my head” because that’s where my brain is!
I had a dream last night that I was in high school again. That’s never a great start to any day, so I’ll blame that for the fact that I woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning. I’ll blame that, work, and all the usual hassles of my diagnoses, but I’ll … Continue reading Hey Dysautonomia International: My anxiety is only “all in my head” because that’s where my brain is!
I talked in a recent blog post about how I have been able to deal with a family crisis (read: a new flavor of an old 3h!7 sandwich) this past month while still maintaining my career, Improv class, and general head-above-water appearance. I may have slightly exaggerated that in one capacity: I have been terrible … Continue reading Liebster Awards
Wheres’s Whoopsie #3/Improv #2: The Empty Canvas is Already Whoopsied
I have an approach/avoidance relationship to mindfulness. Creating an intentionally mindful state is a battle, but hyperfocus, which comes naturally, has trance-like qualities. The more upsetting recent events have been, the more I have hyperfocused on my labyrinthine coloring book. Can I call it mindful meditation that I completed two posts worth of Where's Whoopsies … Continue reading Wheres’s Whoopsie #3/Improv #2: The Empty Canvas is Already Whoopsied
