  • I Wanna Be a Puppeteer!

    Lately I’ve been really into puppets (thank you TikTok), so I bought this adorable Wizard puppet (please pardon the askew glasses) and am looking into taking local classes or workshops in puppetry. It is something I’m really excited about right now. I always loved puppets, but TikTok is really breathing new life into the old […]

  • I Have a TikTok!

    I’ve had a TikTok account for a while, but never shared it because I only used the account to watch other people’s TikTok videos and hadn’t posted any of my own. However, recently I decided to start making some silly videos just for fun. I’m not the best dancer, so I’ve had to be creative […]

  • How to Respond to Mean Comments

    How do you respond to “mean” or seemingly insulting comments that you receive on your blog or social media? Sometimes I’m not even sure if a reply is meant to be insulting, so I try to give the person posting it the benefit of the doubt, but sometimes there is no doubt. Here are a […]

  • I’m Livestreaming on YouTube

    I’ve started livestreaming on my YouTube channel just for something to do and another way to connect with people. I’m doing most of the streams on my personal channel, rather than my toys and books channel. My personal channel has a lot less subs (around 200 compared to over 3,000), so if you are a […]

  • Twittering Tales #127 – Dark Train

    Here is my tweet-sized entry for this week’s photo prompt Twittering Tales challenge: The train draws near in a cloud of fog – the headlight shining through the mist just enough to illuminate the faces of those waiting to board. I tip my hat downwards to hide my own expression. I do not want to […]

  • Micropoetry: 3 Elfchen Poems

    Recently I discovered Elfchen poems, which are 5-line poems that follow this pattern: Line 1 – 1 word Line 2 – 2 words Line 3 – 3 words Line 4 – 4 words Line 5 – 1 word (different than the first line word) It is also common to take the last word of someone […]

  • I Hate Disappointing People

    You ever go to a doctor’s appointment and feel like you somehow disappointed them? That’s how I’m feeling today. I went to see my psychiatrist and while he didn’t say anything overly negative or mean, I just left with the feeling that somehow he was a little disappointed in me. Perhaps I am projecting here, […]

  • Rough Week, But Some Good News

    This has undoubtedly been a rough week for me so far, but some good things have happened too. Here is a short run-down of the last few days: Sunday and Monday, one of our pipes froze because of the freakishly cold weather so we had no water until that section thawed out. Luckily, it didn’t […]

  • Goals for 2019 – Blog, Writing, Art

    I don’t set personal resolutions for New Years, but I do try to set some goals to try to reach the coming year, especially for my blog/social media, writing, and art. I did meet and even surpass some of the goals I set for 2018. For instance, I hoped to have 500 Instagram followers by […]
