Living Alone Diaries: Being Prepared

If you regularly read this blog, then you will know that I have recently had a cold, the first time I've been sick since 2019. Because it had been so long since I was sick (and since I had moved twice since the last time I was sick) I didn't have any cold/flu meds in … Continue reading Living Alone Diaries: Being Prepared

It’s Not You It’s Me: Am I the Dating App Drama?

Now about a couple weeks ago I once again succumbed to the social pressure every single person receives and I re-joined a dating app, this time Tinder.

Summer Spontaneity

This week I had some of one of those magic summer days where an amazing day just kind of falls together, the kind of day that hasn't been able to happen since 2019 and just how wonderful they are.

The importance of public and private lives. Why do bathing suits cost so much? How … Continue reading Mid-Week Procrastination Vol. 4

May Empties

I've been on a bit more of a buying moment lately than a use up moment, and I have been using what I buy so I have no guilt about it, but I need to put a freeze on the buying and really lean back into the Project Pan and get some stuff used up. … Continue reading May Empties

Mid-Week Procrastination vol. 3

We have a much better week of content this week, perfect for my first full week of work in two weeks. It also is worth noting that I wrote this while listening to the now 20 year old debut album from Avril Lavigne, so no, I can't chill out, and yes, that is what I'm … Continue reading Mid-Week Procrastination vol. 3
