A Quick Spring Update

Good morning all! It's been a long, odd couple of weeks, so let's celebrate the wins, shall we? I received my first dose of the vaccine on March 31st! I was so happy and grateful to have received it. My second dose is on April 21st. My second creative non-fiction writing class ended last week.… Continue reading A Quick Spring Update

A New Season

Good morning friends! I hope you are all doing well! I haven't posted in awhile. Multiple reasons - work was simultaneously making me stressed and sad while also being very slow, I was working on a frustrating C2C crochet project that I kept having to frog, and just general fatigue. Last week was my anniversary… Continue reading A New Season

A Little Bit of Sunshine

Happy weekend, friends! Wednesday was a wonderful day. I know there won't be overnight changes now that Biden is in office, but I've been feeling optimism about the pandemic (and life in general) for the first time in a very long time. If the pandemic is marathon, we're at mile 20. I know I'm relatively… Continue reading A Little Bit of Sunshine

It’s the Most Wonderful Time…of the Year (???)

Hello friends. Happy Sunday. Five days left before Christmas, and eleven more days in this garbage year. But at least we've approved a second vaccine in the US! I feel like the light is finally at the end of the tunnel with this pandemic. I follow several medical professionals/science communicators on Instagram for COVID info,… Continue reading It’s the Most Wonderful Time…of the Year (???)

Small Adventures

I've been feeling hopeful lately. Maybe it's because I finally broke down and started reading FiveThirtyEight again after swearing off polls forever in 2016. Maybe it's the warmth and coziness of the season, as the leaves fall and the days get shorter. I've spent so much time dreading a pandemic winter, but now? If it… Continue reading Small Adventures

Three Things – Self Care Edition

It's a sad and scary time right now in the States. I voted last week and it was a respectful experience. Just a short line, everyone wore masks. I cast my ballot for Biden/Harris...and now we just sit. And wait. I hope you all are safe and are practicing lots of self-care. I hope you… Continue reading Three Things – Self Care Edition

Camping in Hoosier National Forest

Since the start of the pandemic, I've been fighting a lot of restlessness. One of my goals for the year was focusing more on travel before the next phase of my life. I started strong with a trip to San Francisco, then found myself in lockdown weeks later. It's a privileged thing, really, and sadder… Continue reading Camping in Hoosier National Forest

You Can’t See the Morning, but I Can See the Light

Hello friends. How is it nearly October? I feel like March and April were two years long, and as we settle in this weird routine, time is slipping through my fingers. That's a good thing. I am ready to pack this part of my life into a cardboard box, close it tightly with all the… Continue reading You Can’t See the Morning, but I Can See the Light
