“There’s not a place where I’ll go You’ve not already stood.” —Sunday Sermonette because I’m Struggling

This isn’t a sermon, really. It just sounded like a fun title. You know. Double S. Anyway. I am struggling, though. And I’m gonna talk about God—talk about how He comforts me despite the way things are going now. (I feel like I should mention in case anyone is new, if you’re not a Christian, … Continue reading “There’s not a place where I’ll go You’ve not already stood.” —Sunday Sermonette because I’m Struggling

“I will mourn you.” — a letter left unread

You will never read this letter. You will go about your days and weeks thinking about tuition rates, your dangerously dwindling enrollment, and your desperate bids to keep your establishment afloat. You will not think of me. You will not miss me. You will not mourn over the meaning of my loss to your school, if indeed you recognize it all all. But I... I will mourn you.

Humans will pack bond with the oddest “other,” such as inanimate objects. You can handle more pain than you think, both physically and emotionally. Depression is a bitch, even if it’s not … Continue reading Things I Have Learned So Far — “When I Should be Sleeping” Edition

“That isn’t funny at all, but it almost sounds like it should be?”

TL;DR -- My update schedule told me to blog. I have pink hair. Graduated college again. Anxiety is awful. Random oversharing. I'm making questionable choices. Our house is infested by ants. My Husband and I have different emotional needs, and that's okay. My blog schedule says I'm supposed to update about my life today. Though … Continue reading “That isn’t funny at all, but it almost sounds like it should be?”

To the Muffin who…

To the Muffin who'd been with me every step of the way since I was eleven years old, thank you. To the Muffin who didn't have a home after her kittens were adopted out, thank you. To the Muffin who found her owner at a Petsmart and took to her immediately even as she hissed … Continue reading To the Muffin who…
