Different Seasons, Indifferent Friends

I don't want to say I'm super organized when it comes to my plan for blog posts, even though it might seem that way to some. Especially when I reveal what I'm about to reveal.

Go Home Again

The bus pulled into the station at exactly 7:03. The sun was long gone and the tiny town was lit by street lights and blinking traffic lights.

I know that a lot of people out there will throw on Friends or The Office not necessarily to watch, but to have on a background noise. Especially during all this pandemic and … Continue reading The Living Room

Cooking for Myself

I know when I think "meal planning," I think … Continue reading Cooking for Myself

Question of the Week #239

If your mother and father told you that they never really loved or even liked you, and you knew it was absolutely true, how would it affect your life?
