The Unending Battle to Become Perfect

If there was a graph out there that had the fluctuations of how often pixie cuts came back into style, I would probably post it here, but I could not find one to prove my point. American culture (especially the one that exists online) is OB-freaking-SESSED with looking perfect. If you have ever noticed, whatever…… Continue reading The Unending Battle to Become Perfect

Spooktober Challenge (Spooky Story October Challenge)

The temperature dropped by four degrees last night. Fall is coming. Fall Is Coming. FALL IS COMING. That can only mean one thing: SPOOKTOBER. On my old blog website; every October, we took the time to write a short story (or draw a comic or draw a picture) every day.  So, basically, 30 days of…… Continue reading Spooktober Challenge (Spooky Story October Challenge)

I buy new clothes every now and then,…… Continue reading Self-Care (The Meditations)

The Cost of Literature Today

I walked away from BAM (Books And More) having spent just a little under $80. Six books. Two on sale, but I still saved $17 from my discount. WHOA NELLY. That is a lot of dough. As a blogger who does not make money from her posts, who works two part-time jobs, has rent and…… Continue reading The Cost of Literature Today

Women, Fashion, and the Economy

Fashion is something that every woman (and, now, practically every man, too) is seemingly and expert in.  Your great Aunt Nancy knows exactly what Princess Kate wore on Tuesday and your Grandmother knows whats up with the mixing of leather and lace. While this is, seemingly, a good thing, it also has some pretty serious…… Continue reading Women, Fashion, and the Economy
