Nerd Alert

Broke, but want to start your business? Ever considered using Microsoft Office to make graphics and perfect documents? That’s how I started out. I have added more tools to my arsenal since those early days, like PhotoShop and GIMP, but Office still is at the core of my operations: after all, I am a writer.

Water, water, everywhere

I’m not much of a shower person. I will shower to stay clean, but I don’t really like being wet and feeling cold when I get out. I do have this lemon aloe soap that is divine to shower with. I looove smelling it and rubbing it all over. It makes me look forward to […]

Going Back

If you could change something about your life, what would it be? For me, I think I would have explored my options and started my freelance hustling earlier. When I was going to school for my science degree, it was mostly pushed that teaching or research were the only options. When I graduated, I started […]

Dark Twists and Surreal Turns: new book!

I don’t know about you, but I have been super busy this quarantine. After I work on my classes all day, recording lectures and making online assignments, and of course, online meetings, I wind down by working on my writing biz. I try to write a blog a day, and do a little writing on […]

100. Puppy rug compromise

This is my 100th post. After this I am going to stop using numbers in my titles. I did that mostly to keep myself focused and keep this blog alive for 100 posts—it seemed like a good number to test whether I had the chops or not for blogging. Now that I have, and have […]

99. Cooking Skills: Baby Ninja Level

So my cooking skills are definitely improving—I only made one blunder (well, actually two) in my cooking endeavors in quarantine. The first blunder: I was following a recipe for chicken and rice, with chicken broth and the whole shebang. I cut up a raw chicken breast, started cooking it in a pan on the stove, […]

98. You are a warrior

I know some people are scared with this pandemic going on. While I’ve been enjoying all the alone time, there’s been instances where I wondered about the future: how will all of this end up? Will more people die, or will there be a happy ending? The most confident person saying modern medicine will prevail […]

97. Kitty Mischief

There is nothing more relaxing than typing away with a kitty in your lap. Of course, you are obligated to not move anyway to make sure the kitty jump doesn’t off, but it is soooo cute when they sit in my lap and look at me with a trusting gaze. Elsa currently sits with me, […]

96. Dream Day: Flying to survive

Waaaay back in the day, when I was in grad school and under a lot of stress and pressure, I had a lot of vivid dreams. I recalled them pretty decently, so I decided to make a dream journal and record them all. I rediscovered the journal last week and decided to polish them up […]
