Run with us.

Does anyone remember The Raccoons cartoon show? At the end of the program they always played the most beautiful theme music. Here’s the YouTube link, complete with a video. To the best of my knowledge, these lyrics are © Lisa Lougheed. When darkness falls, Leaving shadows in the night, Don’t be afraid, Wipe that fearContinue reading “Run with us.”

Going pretty darned well!

The intermittent fasting is going much better than expected! I’ve embraced the challenge of it. I think I’ve done it for three days now. The main problem is that I’m sick to my stomach because when I go off the fast, I eat disgusting unhealthy foods. I’m sure this is a temporary issue, and thatContinue reading “Going pretty darned well!”

A million updates!

TRIGGER WARNING: DISCUSSION OF PHYSICAL ABUSE AND SLIGHT SEXUAL UNDERTONES  So, there’s a lot going on with me (none of it horrid–it’s all good), so I can’t imagine how long it’ll take to write this blog post. It’s 3:47 now, so let’s find out. First of all, the fishies are all dead. (Oh. Actually, thatContinue reading “A million updates!”

I’m just being too ambitious today! Geez.

TRIGGER WARNING: SUICIDE (but I’m not suicidal now–it’s in the past) So, I’m not sure which direction my life is headed in. I’ve bailed on my second novel of the year because I wasn’t feeling it.

It’s a scary application. They want to know my job history, and they want three references. It’s causing all that weird application anxiety IContinue reading “Doubt.”

Too much honesty.

So, I’m hoping to be contacted by my city’s organization that runs the CASA program. (Court-appointed special advocates.) I want to volunteer as a CASA in order to help kids who are in the system. The CASA speaks up for kids if they’ve committed crimes because they were abused, for example, and explains the circumstancesContinue reading “Too much honesty.”

The spare bedroom beckons.

Dear Mesmerizing Meg: My partner and I have been together nearly four years, which means our entire adult lives. (I’m twenty-one and he’s twenty-two.) We’ve lived together for two years, sharing a room for the last one. Lately I’ve been feeling somewhat unhappy and losing the love for him, but I’m also undergoing some mental-healthContinue reading “The spare bedroom beckons.”
