WordPress.com: An Interlude

Some months ago, WordPress.com laid down some fuckery and I decided not to renew my premium plan or domain here on From Adie, with Love.

I figured I would either move self-hosted or switch to Blogger, neither of which particularly appealed to me for a number of reasons. Continue reading “WordPress.com: An Interlude”

Well, that’s a roundabout way to say “read more”

I’ve been trying really hard to get back in touch with my creative side. I really miss art and crafts and having an imagination that reaches beyond imagining myself either vastly wealthy or living in a dumpster. They say to fake it until you make it, so I’m trying to fake myself into believing I’m still an artistic person.

I’m just a bit starved for ideas, at the moment. And motivation, if I’m honest. Time is a precious commodity and I can’t spare too much on frivolous things likeĀ enjoyment.

Writer’s block is a nightmare. Writing is the only creative thing I really have time for, because I can do it literally anywhere I have access to paper and a writing implement. Which is everywhere, because I carry a notebook and pen with me. But nothing comes.

Don’t you just hate that?

I don’t even know what to blog about. I seriously considered doing another diet post, because I don’t know what else to say (that isn’t just… horribly depressing). That’s how deep this writer’s block is going.

On the bright side, with all that time spent not creating things myself, I’ve been reading things other people have created! So, here are a couple books you should pick up, if you like good stories. Continue reading “Well, that’s a roundabout way to say “read more””

My First Week on Keto

Before we start, I want to give a special shout out to Allen at Das Midnight Goose for being the first person to buy something from my Society 6 store! I really hope you enjoy the mug, Allen!

Did you know that if you buy any From Adie, with Love logo merch and tag me in a picture of it on social media I’ll give you a shout out on my blog? Amazing!


So… diet check in…

Let’s just do this.

Adie Does Keto

Oh, a special weekend post, because this is my blog and I can do what I want!

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Losing weight isn’t something important to me. I’m cute, I’m smart, I’m funny, and my weight doesn’t affect any of those things. I’m goddamn charming, even at 210.

When people have asked me about losing weight, I cut back with the same retort every time, “I’d rather be fat and happy than skinny and miserable.” Continue reading “Adie Does Keto”

Fuck You, Pay Me

So, last week I read Katie’s (aka Fatty McCupcake’s) WTF Wednesday post where she lamented a lack of legitimate, paying, freelance writing gigs. And trust me, that struggle isĀ real.

Jumping off of that, I was excited when I scrolled through my Twitter feed (instead of just going straight to my mentions) for the first time in about a month and saw a call for submission for a women-only anthology that specified “this is paid.” I’m feminine-of-center. I have women writer friends. What a fantastic opportunity! Continue reading “Fuck You, Pay Me”

Coping Mechanism, Rants and Ramblings

The more you tell me not to rage, the more I want to actually rage.

People exhaust me. This probably doesn’t come as a surprise to anyone, but it’s important to get that out of the way, because it really sets the tone for this blog post.

Another important note to begin this post with: I am not a child. I am thirty-years-old.

You wouldn’t be able to tell on paper, of course. I’m unemployed. I’m in school. I live with my mother. I don’t/can’t/won’t drive. On paper, someone might guess I’m in my mid- to late-teens. That’s probably a fair assumption. It’s certainly an apt reflection of my current life situation.

It’s not as though I’m just sitting idly in my lament. I’m looking for a job. I’m learning to drive. I’m planning my transfer to University to get my bachelor’s degree, start my career, get my own place, and get on with my damn life. It’s just that jobs in San Diego are scarce (jobs I’m actually qualified for are scarcer) and I haven’t quite reached those goals, yet.

Not being quite there yet, however, does not change the fact that I am still thirty-years-old.

And as such, I am very, very tired of people treating me like I am still a teenager. Or a sociopath. If there’s a difference. Continue reading “The more you tell me not to rage, the more I want to actually rage.”

Q & Adie

IT’S Q & A TIME, WITCHES!

First of all, thank you all so much for your questions! I didn’t think I would get nearly so many questions and I’m really floored that you guys are so interested in my boring life lol! Thank you so much!

After I cut out the parts where I got distracted and stared blankly into space, the video ended up still being forty minutes long. So, I broke it into two videos you can watch at your leisure. Keep in mind, I filmed this on my laptop camera and edited it on the free Microsoft video editing software, so it’s not exactly super high quality… or the most flattering angle.

Fun Fact: I hate my voice, so the fact that I’m sharing this with you all is proof of my undying love for you.

Enjoy! Continue reading “Q & Adie”
