Real post to come

So my prompt post is turning out to be more difficult than I thought… Crash challenged me to write a continuation of “The Guards” with a different set of randomly generated words and it’s happening, slowly. When I have that finished, (tomorrow is the plan) I will replace this with the actual story. I just…

Stockholm is Gorgeous!

LM Prompts: The Guards

Hello all! I’m back with another Tuesday prompt. I used this site again to make this little story. Planet, sweet, sicken, bodyguard, surprise, and enormous, are the words the site generated for me this week. Not all were incorporated, but you’ll see what I mean below. Enjoy! The village called them the Guards. Mother called…

Balance

One of the most difficult things I’ve found in my short foray into adulthood is striking balance in literally anything. Life very easily becomes a perpetually repeating process of going to work and fueling myself (food, sleep, Netflix) so I can be okay to go to work again the next day. Everyone struggles with this…

Writing it Out: Crash Course 1

Writing it Out: My Mental Health 4

There’s a part of my brain that doesn’t want to make this post today. I don’t have anything original or inspiring to say today. I haven’t experienced any breakthroughs, gotten any better, or even gotten any worse.  I’m just waking up every day and getting through life, which a less interesting experience, but everyone’s got…

Coming Out of My Cage to Steal Your Content

Dear Crash, I loved your list of thirty things you’re grateful for and so I’m going to blatantly steal it. I find with my brain and my mood being what it is these days, it’s very easy to focus on the negative. In fact, I seem to operate on the assumption that if I’m not…

30 Years

I turned 30 on the 31st of March.  Everyone has been asking me if it feels different, or if I feel older.  The only big difference I’ve notice about this year is that EVERYONE WANTS TO TALK ABOUT IT.  It’s a big milestone, yeah.  That’s true.  Do I feel older than I did yesterday?  Not…

Mine Woman!

Mine woman and her husband came to visit! We visited Athens, Greece and a few different places in Denmark!

Writing it Out: My Mental Health 3

I’ve been trying very hard over the last couple week to come up with a clever and articulate way to express the connection I feel between mental health diagnoses with other labels like those associated with race and sexuality, but I have thrown in the towel. There was a detour sign between my brain and…

Christmas in February…
