Mom Guilt?

Taylor Swift released a surprise album last week. It was written and recorded entirely during quarantine. It evokes the magic of youth, the magic of nature, and the magic of scaled down piano-based production. It sounds like if twinkle lights evaporated off of the leaves in the morning, instead of dew drops. I have wasted […]

The 4 of Clubs

Today I found a lovely playing card. The 4 of Clubs, which is equivalent to the 4 of Wands in the Tarot, and which is an extremely auspicious card. I was helping my mom move an old desk out of her new house, and to move it we had to remove the drawers. There, under […]

Postpartum Body Image Pt. 2

If you read my last post, you’ll recall that I have approximately 9lbs to lose in order to get back to my pre-baby weight. And you’ll recall that I’m damn sure going to lose them because I don’t feel like expending the energy to “learn to love” my current baby-bod. But I still benefit from […]

Postpartum Body Image Pt. 1

Dude, its so hard to be female. Let me start out by saying that through both pregnancies, I gained within the recommended weight range for my BMI. I think I maybe reached 30lbs, which is perfectly split between the 25-35lb recommended for me. ::And humblebrag over:: Because BOTH times, after all was said and done, […]

Its only been three and a half years, what?

  Oh Hey. What can happen in three and a half years? Sometimes nothing. However, in looking back on my life, I’m trying to find a three year period in which nothing substantial happened, and well, it hasn’t happened yet. Maybe now that I’m legitimately, like, in my mid-30s WHICH IS STILL NOT MIDDLE AGED […]
