A jab of truth

Life… Is returning to normal. It might be slowly, but it definitely is surely. And as survivors of the 2020 pandemic (doesn’t that sound dramatic), we can definitely say that we made it through all of the 5 stages of grief at one point or another: The grief over the loss of life as weContinue reading “A jab of truth”

Luxury Problems

There’s a couple of things that I can’t ever live without anymore as a First Worlder, regardless of how insane that might sound to people who have it worse. When I say can’t I obviously mean ‘I really really really don’t want to‘ even though it definitely wouldn’t actually kill me, but you catch myContinue reading “Luxury Problems”

Whether it’s a sportsgame or people passing by while perched on a safeContinue reading “Sucker for an audience.”

Anyone that knows me a little knows this about me: I love soup. Sure. Anything fried, greasy or otherwise bad-for-my-health ALSO makes me do a little happy dance.

Crazy cat lady gene: activated
