Hello!

A brief word from moi. Congratulations to me as I finish up my bachelor's degree in Creative Writing. But, I like to practice what I preach which is stop before you burn out. So until next Monday, there will be no new bugs. Instead, you can go back through my timeline and check out some older gems. I might… Continue reading Hello!

Stretching Is Hard

When we think of stretching, we think of flexibility and flexible people. We think about an easy workout. We might not even think of a workout at all. We might even think about old people or dancers. We do know one thing: we should be doing it. That doesn't mean that we actually stretch consistently… Continue reading Stretching Is Hard

When To Stop Writing

Or maybe I should say, "When to take a break from writing". Or maybe, "When to put the pen down". Or maybe, "Do you need to stop writing?". Or maybe, "Just stop writing...for now". There's reason number one: you can't stop rephrasing things. Let's assume we're all writers here. Doesn't matter what kind, but you write. When you take… Continue reading When To Stop Writing

Respecting Boundaries

I might not want a hug today. But I might want one tomorrow. I might not want to talk about one thing, but am eager to talk about something else. I might not want to visit every week, or call every day, or even hear about certain things. And that's okay, those are my boundaries… Continue reading Respecting Boundaries

What I Mean When I Say

“I’ve Changed”

I don't say this often only because the moment doesn't often arise where I get to say it. If I could, I think I would tell everyone willing to listen that I've changed. Partially because I am absolutely obsessed with the concept of change. It's such a nifty idea isn't it? We can start off… Continue reading “I’ve Changed”

Running Is Boring

Last week I wrote about how yoga is boring but this week, we're going to look at how running is boring. Or, at least how people tend to think running is boring. News flash, I refuse to think it is. To be fair, I am not saying treadmill running is exciting. Or interesting. It feels like nothing other… Continue reading Running Is Boring

What I Mean When I Say

I love “love”

I got told a lot in my youth that there were two words I had to be very careful about using. The first one was "hate". You can dislike something, I was told, but to hate it you have to be really sure because that's a big word. And that formed a pretty positive habit. I… Continue reading I love “love”
