Sartorial Saturday: The Witch Jacket, part 2

Last week I mentioned that my purple jacket shrank during the dying process and was now too small for me. I would have to rebuild my witch jacket from scratch, a task I wasn’t looking forward to, at all.

But, the desire to procrastinate on my homework is strong and I managed to get it done in a day.

I also said I was going to take better pictures of it, but the last thing I want to do is take pictures while I’m bloated and cramping, so you get the cell phone pictures my mom took. They’re not bad pictures, they’re just not great. There’s also just two of them: front and back. I’ll definitely post better pictures of just the vest later if anyone wants to see. Read More

Friday Faves: Movies and TV Shows

So, for last week’s Friday Fave, I focused on reading. But, maybe you don’t have the time or mental energy to make the words go into your brain meats. I get it. Trust me, I get it. Sometimes, I just like to veg out and stare mindlessly at flashing lights in a box, watching the pretty pictures go. Or just have some kind of background noise while I’m cleaning or crafting.

So, here are a few of my favorite things to put on the ol’ idiot box (and for the record, I hate that term; the idea that TV inherently makes you stupider pisses me off–it all depends on what you watch and how you choose to interpret it). Read More

Thankful Thursday: Support Network

Something has changed with my unemployment compensation. I used to certify for my benefits once every two weeks, but this week I got a notice to certify even though it has only been one week. I’m incredibly paranoid that my unemployment has run out and that was my last week of receiving benefits (even though I should be getting benefits through April 2018… but maybe that’s only up to a certain amount… I don’t know, because this is the first time I’ve ever received unemployment).

Obviously, that has me a little on edge. Read More

Sorry for the lack of update

No Witchy Wednesday post this week, because I’ve spent the whole day curled up in uterine screaming pain. Between the cramps, the muscle fatigue, and the hormones making my anxiety even worse, I just can’t do the words.

But, I can eat the chocolate.

And I am.

I am eating the fuck out of the chocolate.

Thanks for your patience and I’ll see you tomorrow.

I love you all.

TMI Tuesday: It's Not a Sex Thing!

You know what’s super annoying? When someone finds out that I’m kinky and immediately thinks I want to have sex with them. News flash: I really, really don’t. I really almost never want to have sex with anyone.

Kink and kinksters get a bad rep. Now, I won’t say that the BDSM community doesn’t have some serious problems with predators and abusers, but you know what? So do vanilla communities.

Even stepping away from the “kinky people are all rapists!” mentality, vanilla people tend to assume that kinky people are sexual deviants who like to find all sorts of weird ways to stick this into that to make an orgasm. And, witches, that couldn’t be further from the truth (for me, at least; for most of the kinksters I’ve met and talked to in my life). In fact, I’ve never had an orgasm as a direct result to kinky/BDSM play in my life.

Because, here’s the thing: For me, kink and BDSM isn’t about sexual gratification.

It’s about emotional gratification. Read More

Monday Musings: How Does Friend?

On Thursday, I decided I needed to take some drastic measures in regards to an area of my life I have always struggled with. After class, I asked if my communications teacher had a few spare moments after class to talk. I followed him to his office and there I asked for assistance in this great trouble of my life: Read More

Sunday Sweets: Mug Cake… from a box?

So, I was planning on making mini cupcakes, but while out shopping my mother and I found this interesting thing from Duncan Hines we’d never seen before. I’m sure by this point everyone has heard of mug cakes; take the ingredients, mix them in a mug, nuke it for a minute–Bam! Instant dessert.

It was really only a matter of time before someone capitalized on such a great idea. So, of course, I had to try them. Read More

Sartorial Saturday: HAHA OOPS!

Note: This was actually supposed to be posted last Saturday, but I guess I didn’t schedule it??? HAHAHAHA OOPS OH WELL, HERE, HAVE IT TODAY.


Huh. Maybe this wasn’t such a great idea. I’ve never been one for dressing up on weekends. Bras are for weekdays.

Also, I’m sunburned and don’t feel like wearing anything other than my Deadpool tank and lounge pants.

But, I have some older outfit-ish pictures! Read More

Friday Faves: Reading!

I used to read a lot when I was younger. Then I got to college and I only had time to read school-related things and that sucked! Now, I’m trying to read more for me and my enjoyment, instead of turning into one of those people who hates reading because they associate it with grades and stress.

So, here are a few of my favorite pieces of recreational reading material. Read More

Thankful Thursday: College Edition

This week I’m thankful for the countless opportunities I have been given in my life. Living with depression and anxiety, it can be easy to fall into a cycle of complaint and dissatisfaction. But, there’s a saying that the things we take for granted are the things other people might be praying for.

I complain about school a lot, because it can be overwhelming and exhausting. But, I’m able to go to school without having to worry about it. I don’t have to pay rent. I don’t have to pay my own tuition. And I’m sure if I really needed to, I could get one of my parents to pay for my monthly bus pass.

I’m extremely fortunate that I am able to just devote my time to school. No matter how tired I get, there are so many others who have to work much harder for my same schedule, or who never get such an opportunity at all.

It’s something to be grateful for.

I love you all.

Witchy Wednesday: How It Began (and a little about where it is now)

Like the majority of the things in my life that end up coming to have the most meaning to me, I got into witchcraft for all the wrong reasons. Read More
