Top of October, and what goes.
This goes a bit deep into burnt out noodles territory. For those of you who need it, a content warning about the state of my mental health.
We on that #DeleteFacebook trend train again.
I took a look at Twitter today, as is my refreshed routine during this pandemic, and I see people are on the #DeleteFacebook trend. Okay, let me help y’all out. The primary reason many people claim they cannot delete Facebook is “But my friends/family/partner are on there and it’s the easy way to keep up […]
I have the keys to a broken kingdom.
Originally, I tweeted this, but I think I may wish to expand upon a couple of points. The unrolled tweet for those who can’t be assed to read it on Twitter (not that I blame you): A thought, in several lengths: I’m nearly 40. I am considered a millenial or xennial, though I come in […]

Lay low, wash your hands, ride the furlough.
These times are new and rough for many of us, not knowing exactly how to navigate our new pandemiscape. I’m going to say first that I’m actually thankful for being furloughed from my job at this time. It IS hard to deal with, being used to working and working and working, then told nope, go […]

The title alone should carry enough weight on its own to deliver the complete thought, but it seems the need to explain this in detail is just there as people keep wandering to Twitter, Instagram, and similar services to post their artwork, photography, and the like. The problem is that the overall design of services […]
