Cza / December 29, 2017

I’m overjoyed today! Guess why? The Mighty published my/our story! I cannot be more grateful to have been given this opportunity to share our life experiences, that hopefully others might be able to learn from. 🙂 The Mighty is one of my favorite sites about chronic illness, and it actually served as a cornerstone for my undergraduate thesis. I had…

His first comment? “Unicorn barf!” ~insert virtual photo of me shaking my head while internally rofl’ing~ I wouldn’t call my site a food blog.

Self-care break

Cza / December 7, 2017

Yesterday I took a self-care break, as I was feeling really overwhelmed by things. The day started out okay. Right after waking, Jared and I were intimate. I felt connected. I was still a little groggy, but I managed to get up. (Context: I’m no morning person. It’s usually a challenge to get out me out of bed — one…

Cza / December 4, 2017

Bujo (Bullet Journal) Update: November 2017

Cza / December 1, 2017

I’m relatively new to (consistent) Bujo, or bullet journaling. I remember I was still in college when I last attempted to maintain a tracker. This November, I finally decided to track my activities and habits again. The previous months have been challenging, and admittedly I’ve felt unhealthy in on/off bouts. Currently, I’m still in the process of testing layouts for…

Cza / November 28, 2017

The pink Platinum Plaisir I ordered from Scribe last week finally arrived last Saturday.
