I have no idea if it's helping. It's a lot easier than soaking in epsom salt though. Honestly I think they both do help some, it's just that I still keep using my arm and making it hurt more. In other random news, I...

The Weekly Update: 4/2/17

Good news! The headaches were in fact caused by the granola things I was eating! So I have had a blissfully headache-free week! Well, not entirely since I got a headache from fatigue one day, but that one went away after a night's rest, so close enough. Kristen's life tip of the week: If you start feeling dehydrated despite drinking lots of water and can't figure out why, make sure you're not...

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Spaceships/UFOs

Technically the topic this week is UFOs, but really whether something is a UFO or not is relative, right? I mean, to the aliens in the UFO, it's actually just a spaceship. Or it could be humans flying around in a ship, or something that's not even a ship, but if someone happens to see it and doesn't know what it is, voila! It becomes a UFO. Yes? This was all just a really long way of saying I'm...

First of all, I want to give a big, giant thank you to everyone who commented last week! I didn't even go around commenting on other Sunday Posts myself and instead waited for you all to come to me first because I was worried my post might be too long or make other people uncomfortable, and I didn't want anyone to feel obligated to comment. But you all came and commented anyway and just further...
