  -Cooking with my cast-iron cauldron (I’ve had it for a year, haven’t tried it once) -Playing around with my apple butter recipe (Though it always turns out too sweet) -Breaking out the giant tubs of Halloween decor (I prefer being vomited in Halloween) -Sharing a few Halloween poems that I’m writing (Anything to evoke the season)  -Being honest with my debt issues, no longer being in denial about my problems (Denial can be really […]

A Lesson in Nerves

Today was more than a regular Tuesday for me. I have some goals of mine coming down the pipeline, but it isn’t things that I can just ask for. I can think of a few current wishes that would require me to be selected, not things that I can pick myself. I plan to go into more detail later on. I don’t wish to be so vague, I have to wait to see what happens. […]

Elon Musk: Shaping Our Futures

I am a big fan of the Biographics channel and would recommend checking out as many of their videos as you can. I’ve always enjoyed the videos from host Simon Whistler, he seems to delight in learning things for the sake of learning as much as I do. Sometimes I feel like the only nerd out there who wants to feed her brain with as much random and interesting knowledge as she can. Simon seems […]

Korean Pear Confusion

Are Korean pears supposed to be this crunchy? I’m not really sure–they taste sweet and fruity but so, so crunchy. Like baby apple crunchy or fresh-picked melon. The flavor is sweet and light (though I’m not getting an intense pear flavor) with a water chestnut-like texture. Why?? I’ve had these for a few weeks, maybe I messed up? I’m usually a big fan of fruit but texture really is my thang. I can’t handle weird […]

Drinking Away Monday

Yeah, I’m having a hard case of the “Mondays” tonight. Today wasn’t too bad of day, though I’m a bit envious of my coworkers who have a bit of vacation left. Everyone always seems to harbor way more vacation time then I do–all I can do is let it go and drink about it. Forget them. I never overdo it with alcohol, so me “drinking about it” is a couple of sips before passing out […]

I just want this weekend to never end. In a weird way, it has stretched past more than normal. It almost seems like it’s been a few more days than two. Yesterday, I was supposed to attend my company work party, but I ended up not feeling up for it. I don’t mean to be negative but I am really over the encroachment of my personal/professional lives. I do not want to attend anymore work […]

A Stressful Holiday Season 2018

Whew! I have finally completed nearly all of my holiday shopping–I just want it to be over. This isn’t like me as I do enjoy giving gifts and surprising someone with a present. However, this year, I just haven’t felt it. I have completed the motions, fulfilled my obligations, but I am still waiting for that Christmasy feeling to take over. The holidays have felt extremely contrived–entirely inauthentic. I have despised everything to do with it: […]
