Oh Happy Times

After going through my last few posts and rereading them, I thought about how despite all the melancholy I expressed in writing I did not give adequate acknowledgment to recent happy experiences. When life gets hard, it’s hard not to unconsciously slip into a funk. I forget to take time to slow down and ground…… Continue reading Oh Happy Times

Things I Didn’t Know About WordPress

This post could count as a mini-break from my usual stream of “Omg I am freaking the f*ck out about life someone send help to me ASAP” posts. Although I have to say I never actively write anything and post it as a method of getting more traffic to my blog, and my style of…… Continue reading Things I Didn’t Know About WordPress

Where I’ve Been?

The answer to the post title is… Everywhere, and nowhere. I didn’t do anything life-changing. I just went on with my days since my last post on November 4th. I’m half-tempted to do one of those “What I’ve been up to lately” posts but I don’t know if that feels right. I’m not sure if…… Continue reading Where I’ve Been?

The Sunshine Blogger Award

What better time than now to publish a post for the Sunshine Blogger Award than now! I have been in a bit of a funk for this week about things-that-shall-not-be-named because I really would rather not get into that mess.

Well, I got nominated for the Mystery Blogger Award! 🙂 Here’s the closest I will ever get to virtually flashing a million watt smile and perfecting my pageant-style wave (in the virtual world, of course) to my adoring fans (I meant this in the most sarcastic way possible since there’s no way I can see myself doing…… Continue reading Mystery Blogger Award 2018

Happy Belated 4th

My 4th of July didn’t go as expected. Life can change so easily in a blink of an eye. I was so sure in my last post that things would go accordingly as I was picturing they would. How many times have I been here before, with my inaccurate fortune telling? I should know better…… Continue reading Happy Belated 4th

Upset Over Stupid Things

I’m still doing poorly at times with managing my anxiety. I get upset when the change starts blooming inside me. It can happen on a subconscious level without me even realizing there has been a shift in my mood. Or maybe I do recognize it but I don’t know how to seize control of what…… Continue reading Upset Over Stupid Things

Traveling with Family

For the weekend before Memorial Day, I packed for a three-day trip to the Pocono Mountains where I stayed in a cabin at the Arrowhead Lake community. This was the first vacation I have taken with my parents in years, in addition to my brother plus his girlfriend, Bree. So much anxiety, ugh. Because it…… Continue reading Traveling with Family
