Friendly reminders for the perfectionist in you

Friendly reminders for the perfectionist in you

I’ve always been a bit of a perfectionist, and by a bit, I mean completely. To the point where it stops me cold from finishing things I’m so excited to work on. I’ve gone from posting 2 to 3 times a week to about once […]

Things my mom has taught me

Things my mom has taught me

This week was super important for two reasons. First, the election – which I hope you all voted in! And secondly – it’s my momma’s birthday week! Her birthday was yesterday and we spent the day rewatching Stranger Things and eating takeout food because if […]

Adventures in a loaner chair

Currently I’m typing this post from the comfort (lol not so much) of a loaner chair. It’s a bright red Jazzy, perfect for any grandma. Or apparently me, who can no longer rely on their own chair to get them to and from work. I’ve […]

9 Ridiculous things that make me anxious that only disabled people will understand

One of my biggest pet peeves in the entire world is the comments you get from people who genuinely believe you can outthink your anxiety. Come on, it’s all in your head.  Just calm down.  You know nothings happening, right? You’re fine.  Stop thinking about […]

Looking back on ten years of friendship

Looking back on ten years of friendship

After I graduated high school, I was pretty stoked to say goodbye to nearly everything associated with those 4 years. Waking up at 5 am, ableist teachers and a truly horrible PI room for disabled students, kids who ignored me from day one but then […]

6 Things I wish I knew before starting my blog

6 Things I wish I knew before starting my blog

Before I launched my blog, I spent so long reading everything I could about the process. It was honestly borderline obsessive. At one point, I had a folder of about 100 bookmarked links all pretty much telling me the same information over and over again […]
