Seasons of Creativity

Lately, I've been feeling less-than-inspired to sit down and write. Though I start each day scribbling into a journal, the ideas haven't been effortlessly evolving into ideas worthy of being shared.

Web Miscellany: Compilation #50

Howdy! How has the week been to you? Phoenix received the first mini-monsoon of the season, bringing with it more humidity than actual precipitation.

They said that my symptoms... Continue Reading →

Hello, you lovely people, and Happy Independence Day to those in the US! How has the week found you? I've been violently oscillating between excited and exhausted. After discovering black mold, we spent an insufferable week at my in-law's house and then returned home to the infestation, where we're now debating whether to remodel or... Continue Reading →

Web Miscellany: Compilation #46

Hello, friends! How has the week found you? Mine has been quite interesting, bringing with it a diagnosis of mercury poisoning, the discovery of black mold in our home, dinner with my aunt, and a generous gift from my grandparents to help with the overwhelming medical expenses.
