  • Why I Don’t Like Porn

    I’ve never liked porn. It used to be because I was a Christian and felt like it was “sinful” to look at porn. After leaving the church, my moral beliefs about porn became confused, but I still felt that something was off about the whole thing. So, being me, I started investigating the porn industry […]

  • Suit Up for Battle

    Have you ever had a relationship in your life, whether it be a family member, coworker, boss, neighbor, schoolmate, or other social acquaintance, who makes you feel like you need to prepare yourself for for battle every time you come in contact with them? Perhaps they are masters of the subtle put-down, love to give […]

  • Video: My Mom Sent Me an Easter Care Package!

    Check out the cute stuff my mom sent to me for an Easter care package! She did really good this year! It definitely helped cheer me up since I had been feeling pretty lousy lately between my depression and my chronic health issues.

  • Poetry: Second First Love

    I hated you the first time we met. You had replaced my old love before I had the chance to even say goodbye. You dared to appear right as he vanished – and for that you had to take the blame.

  • Star Trek Exhibit Highlights at Indianapolis Children’s Museum

  • CFS/ME Flare Up and Park Outing

    It’s been a rough week physically. I had a CFS/ME flare-up, which feels a lot like mono if you’ve ever had that, or the worse flu you can imagine. During these flare-ups, I run a fever, my body aches horribly, I feel too exhausted to move, too exhausted to breathe, and if I sit up […]

  • Poetry: Narcissistic Games

    She could never let me sleep. That would put us on equal footing and allow me to be fully awake and aware. Instead, she would sneak into my room, shake me awake and cry loud, calculated tears while I practiced hiding my true feelings and tried my hardest to become a limp, gray rock held […]

  • Valentine’s Day 2019 Gifts – Lots of Unicorns!

    I had a good Valentine’s Day yesterday! My husband and I went to Fazoli’s for a casual dinner because we just don’t find it worth it to go to nice restaurants on Valentine’s Day when it is so ridiculously busy and packed. We will go to a nice dinner in a few days when it […]

  • When Someone You Loved Embraces Ignorance

    I have to be careful how I word this post as there is a slight (but unlikely) chance the person I am talking about might read it. However, it has been weighing heavily on my mind so I wanted to talk about it. There was a person in my personal life I was really close […]

  • Poetry – At Your Service

    At Your Service By: Maranda Russell One more lost little girl at your service. Actually, that’s a lie. I’m not at your service. I’m not at your anything – and I never shall be again.
