Just over a year ago (June 9, 2018) was my last day with my traditional employer. I loved the people and the idea of what I was doing. I built amazing relationships, and got to be part of some very awesome experiences. However, the hours, physical and mental stress, and low pay were taking a … Continue reading Has It Really Only Been A Year?
So if you’re a regular follower of mine, you may have noticed that there hasn’t been a blog post in a few weeks. And also, that my social media went largely silent for a time, until suddenly we were at Emerald City Comic Con last weekend. Now I am slowly getting back into my scheduled … Continue reading When Life Happens
This week, I had planned on talking about the best books I read this year. Maybe throw in a little festive holiday fun. Instead, it’s time for some really personal sharing. And it’s scary. I’m not okay right now. It’s hard. No matter how much I or anyone talks about wanting to be authentic and … Continue reading Honesty Means Saying “I’m Not Okay Right Now”
via GIPHY Yep, it’s my birthday. Again. They just keep coming, year after year. The “milestone” of 40 was last year, and I’m working today, because it’s the middle of the week.

We’re heading off to Geek Girl Con in Seattle in a few days (I really should start packing). If you’re attending the con, be sure to stop … Continue reading A Little Illumination
Last week there were two days that I wanted to be super vocal on, and in fact fully intended on doing so, but I ended up missing both. Between some struggles with my own mental health issues, some craziness with scheduling, and bringing home a new puppy...well, the week got (understandably) away from me. So … Continue reading Getting Up Close and Personal
I’m back! I live! via GIPHY Seriously though, I don’t know why, despite how many times I’ve moved, it completely surprises me how much work it is and how long packing and unpacking takes EVERY TIME. Harrison and I have been in Portland for just over two weeks. And within a week of arriving we … Continue reading Changing Trajectory
Just wanted to let you all know that the blog is going on a brief hiatus as we are getting deep into the nitty gritty of packing and moving! via GIPHY That's right, Harrison and I are leaving California behind and heading for somewhere with a slightly better cost of living, some great opportunities, and … Continue reading Blog Hiatus due to MOVING!
I can’t believe it’s the end of July already! I mean, last I looked it was February. How the what? Where? Huh? Of course, besides just being busy and losing time that way, there’s also the fact that my brain (and the rest of me) is melting because of this nasty heat wave in Los … Continue reading July Round Up
