Inspiration from Television

I’m going to let you all in on a little secret. I almost never watch a series during it’s peak. I hate spoilers. I hate waiting for the next episode. And I often am just far too lazy. Most of the time, concerning anime, I’ve got to wait since I’ve binged my way through everyContinue reading “Inspiration from Television”

Behind the Frame: The Finest Scenery

This game came to my attention thanks to this article. As someone that draws, the basic premise behind the game is sort of funny. I watched a bit of footage for it and it made me chuckle. It’s a fairly simple game that doesn’t look like it actually takes skill. It’s mostly about the story.Continue reading “Behind the Frame: The Finest Scenery”

Mindfulness and DBT in a Cartoon

I will be very honest. I have NEVER seen an episode of Steven Universe. I’ve read some Wikipedia articles and watched some Youtube videos about the show, but never watched a single episode myself. I do like the music for it though and I’ve listened to a ton of the songs via Youtube music videos.Continue reading “Mindfulness and DBT in a Cartoon”

This is Halloween…

Halloween started for a ton of people mid-August. I honestly love the holiday, but I haven’t really celebrated anything since I moved in with my SO and In-Laws. They don’t really decorate, except for Christmas and that’s primarily for my step-daughter. I absolutely love Autumn. The thought of cool air, leaves changing color, and apple/pumpkinContinue reading “This is Halloween…”

September and the LEGO Brain

It’s September! This is a volatile month for me. Bad memories. I’m hoping that Autumn starts to settle in here, but I sincerely doubt it. It feels like we’re rolling into the Second Summer and along with that, a heat wave. I suppose I’ll just have to crank the air conditioner up, drink a tonContinue reading “September and the LEGO Brain”

Snacko Board Breakdown

I posted a few days ago about charcuterie boards. In French tradition, the charcuterie ( (pronounced “shahr-ku-tuh-ree” ) is the art of preparing and assembling cured meats and meat products. Essentially, this is meats’ response to a cheese board. And I’m not one to complain. Boards have become a huge trend. And I mean, whyContinue reading “Snacko Board Breakdown”

Taming Tuesdays

Sometimes you need to do small things for yourself. Like buying yourself $5 flip flops from Walmart because your feet hurt and you feel sad deep within your soul. I also got myself a small slice of cake and ate it mindfully. I wanted to shove it in my face so badly but I tookContinue reading “Taming Tuesdays”

You Obviously Like Owls

In case it was not obvious … I like owls. A lot. Where did this obsession come from? At some point in middle school I worked as a junior zookeeper at the local zoo/park. Birds of prey were my absolute favorite thing there. I still remember the great horned owl there named Tiger. He wasContinue reading “You Obviously Like Owls”

Zephyr Place

Zephyr Place was the street I lived on in Maplewood, Missouri. I only lived in that house for a few months, but it was an important time in my life. Previously, I’d been homeless and was living wherever I could. Sleeping on the street. Sleeping in my friends’ vehicles. Sometimes on strangers couches because theyContinue reading “Zephyr Place”

I’m Just a Kid

I’m 37 going on 7. At least today, that’s my plan. I am not having good brain times right now. Still. I know, it continues on for a very long time. I’m ashamed that I’m just not getting better right now. When I think about it, I realize that this is a trend for thisContinue reading “I’m Just a Kid”
