  • Making My Own Zines

    Lately, I’ve really gotten into making my own zines – handmade little booklets of my art and writing on subjects I find fun or interesting. I am selling these on Ebay, but there are currently limited print runs of 5 copies each (I’m not sure if I’ll do future reprints or not). So if you […]

  • Artemis, the Greek Goddess Who Kicks Butt

    Although I am an agnostic when it comes to the actual physical existence of any kind of God or divine power, I am drawn to pagan spirituality. I love their connection to the earth, seasons, and the cycles of nature. I also happen to love mythology, whether it be classic Greek/Roman, Egyptian, Native American, Eastern, […]

  • I Could Have Been Labeled a Terrorist

    Sometimes I feel like I live in an entirely different world than the one I grew up in. One thing I am greatly thankful for is that there wasn’t the sensitivity to threats of violence or stupid immature outbursts when I was a kid and teen. I think about how common it was when I […]

  • Nighttime Dread and “Quiet Borderlines” Thoughts

    Nighttime Dread and “Quiet Borderlines” Thoughts

    I slept in until after 2pm this afternoon. I hate when that happens. I feel like most of the day is already gone by the time I get out of bed. I must have slept at least around 12 hours last night, even though I had a bit of an emotional fest when I actually […]

  • “The Playbook: 52 Rules to Aim, Shoot, and Score in This Game Called Life” Book Review

    I wanted to write a short review of a book I picked up at the library recently. I found it in the children’s section, but I truly believe it is an inspirational read that anyone of any age could appreciate. It is called “The Playbook: 52 Rules to Aim, Shoot, and Score in This Game […]

  • Literally Drowning My Sorrows…

    Literally Drowning My Sorrows…

    Well, today has been a really shitty day 😦 I only got about 2-3 hours of sleep last night, even with my Seroquel. Something happened last night that really upset me and made me just want to run away. Unfortunately, I have nowhere to run to. Today I decided to go to a local park […]

  • Pumpkin Patches and Patterns Abstract Paintings

    Pumpkin Patches and Patterns Abstract Paintings

    Sometimes I pick a few random colors and then make a painting or two out of them, just to see what I end up with. I did this a couple days ago and came up with two acrylic ACEO paintings that I rather like. The first, I like to call “The Pumpkin Patch”, because that […]

  • Abstract Paintings Inspired by Toys

    Abstract Paintings Inspired by Toys

    The following two abstract gouache paintings were inspired by toys of all things. This first one was inspired by a random grouping of McDonald’s Shopkins toys (sort of like a toy still life painting): And this second painting was inspired by a Gingerbread-themed rubber ducky I won from a claw machine at the arcade: Both […]

  • In Love with Pat Sajak – A funny little story

    In Love with Pat Sajak – A funny little story

    As a child, I wrote my diary in code, knowing my mother would likely find it and read it. I swapped names, and made substitutions, just to throw her off the scent of what I was really thinking and feeling. One of my first adolescent crushes, I referred to as Pat Sajak (the Wheel of […]

  • Writing Prompt: Favorite Childhood Memories

    Writing Prompt: Favorite Childhood Memories

    So I’ve decided to try to post a writing prompt every Saturday. Hopefully I won’t fall off the wagon too many times trying to do so! Today’s Prompt: What memories from your own childhood would you most like to relive? My response: I know it sounds corny, but the memories I would most like to […]
