The Good, the Bad, and the Photo Montage: a life update

It’s been a while, I admit. These past few months have been full of work, doctors appointments, tests, urgent care/ER visits, more tests, medication, pain, and—as of this Wednesday—surgery. The days have not been full of anime, although otome has featured in my real life if not online. (And, yeah, I’ve been totally off socials … Continue reading The Good, the Bad, and the Photo Montage: a life update

Windows in the Dark

You know that feeling when you’re a little kid and you need to use the restroom in the middle of the night, so you slink down the unlit hallway or stairs and through the still and quiet house, trying to avoid looking out of too many open windows for fear of what you’ll find staring … Continue reading Windows in the Dark

Mini Makeup Review: Ilia Skin Tint Serum 💁🏻‍♀️

Obligatory Disclaimer: I’m not a beauty guru, but I am a girl who has spent too much money on makeup in her life that made her look like an Oompa Loompa or made the skin flake off her face. 🙃 Finding the right makeup is always such a guessing game, but I thought I’d throw … Continue reading Mini Makeup Review: Ilia Skin Tint Serum 💁🏻‍♀️

Sometimes I Think, “I Need One of These” — or, a fundamentally broken thing

There are days, weeks really, when I argue with myself. As I get older, I feel more and more that time isn’t going to wait for me. I wonder at the futility and beauty of life, and I spend a great deal of my own in fear. Tonight, this is my diary. I didn’t know … Continue reading Sometimes I Think, “I Need One of These” — or, a fundamentally broken thing

So Far I’ve Come, and Gratefully — a reflection 1.5 years post-injury

Author's Note: This was a post in my backlog of drafts written 1.5 years after my back injury. I don't know why I didn't post it, except maybe that I felt it was self-centered? But? It's my blog? Anyway, I am now 3 years post-injury and going through my 103 unpublished drafts. ❤ I was … Continue reading So Far I’ve Come, and Gratefully — a reflection 1.5 years post-injury

“That Time I Learned that Co-Washing with a High-Moisture Shampoo will Make Me Lose My Hair,” a Shoujo’s Tale & Other Updates

Like any good light novel or any good Shoujo (me, not the anime genre), I begin with a rambling title and an adventure in capitalization. If you recall from this post, I began a Curly Girl Method Odyssey some weeks ago, and I have to say that---now on the other side of it having messed … Continue reading “That Time I Learned that Co-Washing with a High-Moisture Shampoo will Make Me Lose My Hair,” a Shoujo’s Tale & Other Updates

Still Drawing Some Things ™, Getting that Good Internet ™ and Restarting the 31 Day Anime Challenge

As stated on Twitter, I stopped doing the 31 Day Anime Challenge because my back decided it was 2019 instead of 2021; sitting at the desk to type became ill-advised. I'm better than I was, even if I'm not 100%, so I will be resuming the challenge on Sunday the 28th should all the stars … Continue reading Still Drawing Some Things ™, Getting that Good Internet ™ and Restarting the 31 Day Anime Challenge
