I Most Definitely Did Not Start a Newsletter

Unless you are blind, unobservant, or very, VERY stupid, I am about to state something obvious: I changed my blog. *shocks* Yes, part of me is sad to see the old one go. It was, after all, my first design, and has been with me for more than a year now. But I have learned… Continue reading I Most Definitely Did Not Start a Newsletter

Choir, Cornerstone, and The Kid Who Blew My Socks Off

School is finally winding down, and no, just because I'm a homeschooler doesn't mean I don't get a summer break. But with the end of school also comes the end of co-op, and unlike that incredibly dramatic and entirely false alarm I gave a couple months ago, this really will be my last class at… Continue reading Choir, Cornerstone, and The Kid Who Blew My Socks Off

The Enigmas of an Introvert’s Notebook

Writers are an odd lot. Yes, I know, statement of the century. But seriously. We wander around graveyards with the express purpose of stealing dead people's names, space out of conversations to contemplate which innocent character we're going to murder next, and hurt ourselves on purpose so we can "know what it feels like". (At… Continue reading The Enigmas of an Introvert’s Notebook

Elves, Evolution, and a Very Confused Mother—another art dump

You guys know that people sometimes pay me to paint things, right? As in, art isn't just a hobby, but a business. They get an authentic, hand-painted portrait. I get money. Everyone wins.

Introversion, Introspection, and the Emotions of an INTJ—a ton of tags

That title sounds way cooler than the actual post. *cough* Hello, my minions. I've had a couple of tags floating around in cyberspace for some time now, and with yet another addition to that stack, I thought it high time I did a compile post and shove the brilliant depths of my intellect out into… Continue reading Introversion, Introspection, and the Emotions of an INTJ—a ton of tags

Sorry…

Yo. Due to circumstances beyond my control, you all must be deprived of my presence today. I will be back next week with boatloads of sarcasm and glitter to go around. Be patient. In the meantime, have a picture of my cat. (I took an entire photography class last year, and this is the only… Continue reading Sorry…

A Trip Down Ancestry Lane—ft. my mother, a graveyard, and a toy car

Last week, as life decided to pile up on us, mom, Anna, and I thought it high time we shirked our responsibilities and went out for a mid-afternoon Starbucks. We're really not lazy, I promise. (Well, actually, I might be, but that's a different subject.) But this time of year is our book business's busiest… Continue reading A Trip Down Ancestry Lane—ft. my mother, a graveyard, and a toy car

How I Earned a Walmart Employee’s Undying Respect

Welcome back, peeps, to our weekly Thurs---er, Friday post. Today, I'll be sharing a strange and mildly fascinating experience that includes eyeglasses, introversion, and an Indian man. Woo woo.
