Saturday Scroll: 09/10/22

I am at the point where I am not wondering "Am I the Drama?", and started asking are these external factors the chaos or am I the chaos. I am severely overwhelmed. But I am slowly but surely making it through. I don't currently have Apple TV+, but this show, Gutsy, is very intriguing to … Continue reading Saturday Scroll: 09/10/22

Wednesday Wants: Fall Accessories Edition

Last week was the first week in ages that I had to get dressed every day for a full week (even pre-pandemic I had been wearing exclusively for a few months and then on weekends for 2 years, and later in grad school it is what can I put on my body to cover it … Continue reading Wednesday Wants: Fall Accessories Edition

Fall Recipe Dreaming

There is something about cooking and baking as the weather cools (she says as it is 30C outside today) that is just so much more enjoyable and, I don't know, romantic? than cooking in the summer.
