Update: Life and Books (Oct 2020)

This post is going up on November 1st, and the US presidential election is the 3rd (though apparently there's going to be a delay for results). So depending on when you see this, I'm either very worried, very upset, or very relieved. Well, moderately relieved, at least. Fingers crossed, everybody. Now, what did I do in October? I watched (well, mostly listened to, thank you Netflix for the...

Update: Life and Books (Sep 2020)

Well, September is over. It's been another tough month. Probably for everyone. I've had a lot of headaches and worries, but I'm gonna try to focus on some positive things for this post. I played some games! If you saw my review of Overland, then you already know how much I've adored it. Since finishing my first playthrough, I've been trying to find all the landmarks and overlooks, just because...

Random Musings: A YouTube Channel that Brightens My Day (AKA Drawfee Appreciation Post)

I feel like everyone could use some fun and happiness and distraction in their life right now. So I'm here to give a recommendation that brings fun and happiness and joy to my life in the hopes that it will do the same for you. This is my absolute favorite YouTube channel because it's so fun and hilarious and entertaining. And the people are so respectful and wholesome (well, not everything...

Update: Life and Books (Aug 2020)

Technically I'm a couple days early since August hasn't quite ended yet, but eh, I don't think anything noteworthy is gonna happen within the next day or two. Time is a blur this year anyway. Everything is starting to blend together. What even happened in August? Who knows! (I don't mean to make light of the terrible things that have been happening, but it's just a constant barrage, sometimes I...

Update: Life and Books (July 2020)

I don't feel like talking about everything horrible happening in the world. I need a break. And luckily I somehow have lots of other stuff to talk about this month! I've been tentatively going by Kit on Twitter lately to see if I like it because I want something more gender neutral. (Though I found out Kristen is apparently a male name in Scandinavian countries, which is cool, if that's true.)...

Update: Life and Books (May/June 2020) + I Finally Made Some Art This Year!

It's been two months since I did one of these posts, and I still have nothing to talk about. No significant changes to my life or my health or my family or anything. Though the US has been a mess lately, hasn't it? Just wear masks, please. And stay home if you can. And remember that Black Lives Matter. And remember that trans women are women and trans men are men, regardless of what a certain...

Update: Life and Books (Apr 2020)

So. Another month of social distancing and staying home. How's everyone doing? I'm not super affected by the staying home thing since that's just my normal life (because chronic illness), but I am feeling all the stress of everything. It's still difficult to get all the food and supplies I need from the store. I still worry about my grandparents getting sick. I still worry about someone in my...

Random Musings: Free and Cheap Software I Use for Blogging, Organization, Art, and Other Needs

This is a post I've been wanting to write a for a while, and this seemed like a good time for it. I'm sure a lot of people are struggling with finances right now and looking for ways to cut costs. Anyway, because of my own situation, I've had to find ways to do the things I love on a budget. So I thought I'd share some of the cheaper or free alternatives I use for things like blogging and...

Update: Life and Books (Mar 2020)

Ugh. Part of me didn't even feel like making this post because I'm just so full of stress and anxiety, as I'm sure we all are. If you want to skip the next couple paragraphs for your mental health, I won't blame you. It's just me griping and worrying, no serious news. Anyway, if you want some non-virus goodness, I've also been sharing a lot of pictures of birds and squirrels on my Twitter...

Update: Life and Books (Feb 2020)

So, February is over, and it's been... a month. Not a good one, not a particularly worse than usual one, just a month, for me, at least. I tried three weeks of physical therapy for my weird nerve problem in my forehead, but I don't know if it's helped at all, and I'm just completely exhausted. My body can't take leaving the house that much. I'm going to try continuing with using a TENS machine...
