Talking about my Slump

Thought I would share more about this slump that has had me more in semi-hiatus mode than ‘new minimal post schedule.’ I’m still reading, just, not with this desire to aside from the couple of books I’ve managed to finish. I’m still here, I exist, but it feels like I don’t. The books are there, […]

After a week of like the craziest crap with our internet, I’m pretty much all for a discussion post with it’s lack of graphics and photos. Also, I did think about this topic quite a bit with my new found…isolation. I love hanging around people, well, my friends, and though I can come off as […]

Both times, something that really hit home for me was her take on ‘the strong female character’ because she was 200% right. This stereotype is such a […]
