For the record, I did not actually bite anybody. It just – it had been a long week. I was so tired, and so crabby, and was trying really hard to provide good customer service without ripping someone’s head off. But I had run straight into a mental wall and was trying to scrape myself… Continue reading A Biting Mood
Another ultra-relevant/unfortunately relatable song from Paramore, folks. All the news seems to do for me is cause my anxiety to skyrocket and, on worse days, send me spiraling. I keep telling myself that I can handle it, when the reality is it just makes things WORSE. And I’m not actually taking anything in except sheer… Continue reading The News
It’s a slippery slope. But I’m getting better at it.
I swear, I will get back to Drawtober eventually. I just needed to get this out of my head. Long story short: I got the job. Starting the week after next, I will be a full-time library circulation aide at a different branch in the system. And I have a lot of feelings about it.… Continue reading A Puddle of Emotions
Had an interview last Thursday. No clue whether or not I’ll get the job. I do know that I left the interview wanting to crawl under the bed and become one with the dust bunnies, never to see the light of day (or people) again. Guess we’ll see.
Hey look, it’s Octavian, who I drew like, 3 times 2 years ago! And yes, I did forget how to draw him. So I decided to draw him 6 times in a row. Because of course.
Yep. It’s finally here. I have officially made it 30 times around the sun. And I’m not sure quite I’m feeling right now.

I see you, Thirty. Trying to sneak up on me like that. Well, it won’t work! Sure, it’s suddenly September and my birthday’s in a week. But you still don’t surprise me, Thirty! Bring it! I’ll be thirty, flirty, and thriving, you’ll see! (Author’s note: it’s really more like thirty, uhhhh, and managing, but close… Continue reading Around the Corner
I am actually not sure if they hand out stickers when you get your second shot, but if they do, then hey – free sticker. Got my first shot this past Friday. Have to wait until the end of the month to get my second dose. But it feels good to at least be on… Continue reading Doctor Dot: Vaccinations
I know what you’re all thinking. And the answer is – yes, I really can’t draw dartboards. Looks like I’ll have to add it the list, alongside cars. In all seriousness, though, I do need a therapist to get my anxiety under control. And I am in the process of looking for one. It’s not… Continue reading Therapist Hunting
