Hello Humans of the internet! I had originally planed a light hearted post about making a baby blanket for my best friend and trying to follow a crochet pattern. But here’s the thing, at this point in time, I’m not feeling light-hearted at all. I’m feeling moved to speak and moved to action. I don’t know what I can do, but I must do something and my limited talents include typing so I will type.
This is not a news source so I will not describe the events of recent weeks. I will direct you to valid news sources such as NPR, PBS, or the BBC. Here is one article. I’m not here to blame anyone. Because things like this can’t just happen because of one person’s policy. Nothing happens in a vacuum and there’s a million things that I don’t understand leading up to this moment in time. But here we are at this moment in time and I think how we proceed will say a lot about who we are.
I will say that I am angry and I don’t know how to proceed. I don’t know how to help, but I want to. If you know how to help, tell me. Please.
much love to all people regardless of nationality or creed,
Hello Humans of the internet! It’s March! It’s actually been March for a few days. And that gets me thinking about Spring and seasons and weather (and also my birthday a week from when I’m posting this). Personally, March is my favorite months and not just because of my birthday (next Monday). I love the unpredictability of the month. It always feels like a month of change for me.

Hello Humans of the internet! It’s Wednesday and this week is already too much for one week. I’ve had too many rude customers. Today I got a package in the mail. It was a Christmas present that I had sent on December 20th and had never gotten delivered apparently. But, it’s time to focus on the positives and celebrate the end of one month and beginning of the next. Continue reading “Highs, Lows, and Uh-ohs.”
Hello Humans of the internet! Happy Valentine’s Day! If you have a specific person in your life with whom you like to spend Valentine’s Day, I hope that you had a great Valentine’s Day. If you don’t have a person, or can’t spend Valentine’s Day with your person, then I hope you bought yourself some chocolate and a cute little Valentine of your choosing. I and many other Christian people’s of certain denominations including Lutheran and Catholic, spent the day fasting. If you’re not interested in reading a Jesus post, this is your cue to stop reading this post. Continue reading “From Love to Dust”
Hello Humans of the internet! It’s Friday! I did miss posting on Wednesday because I found that I didn’t have anything to say or anything saved. I try to reserve Friday posts for things directly related to dyslexia, but I really want to talk about the mental hamster wheel that I mentioned in Monday’s post. And honestly, this was a lot harder to write then I thought it was going to be. Continue reading “The Mental Hamster Wheel”
Hello, Humans of the internet! We are six whole days into 2018! Can you believe that? 2018 doesn’t even sound like a real year, probably because I read a lot of science fiction as a child. I hope these first 6 days of 2018 are good to you and the rest of 2018 as well. What’s that? You want to know why I’m posting on Saturday and didn’t post of Monday, Wednesday, or Friday? No, you don’t care? Let me tell you anyway. Continue reading “New Year, not so new me”
Hello Humans of the internet! But, AK you said that you weren’t going to post again until January, why are you back already? January is just a few short hours away so I figured it was close enough. And I had one last post I wanted to squeeze into 2017 before it was over. Continue reading “Hello 2018”
I’d like to wish everyone a very merry Christmas. Yes a few days early. I’m spending time with family that I don’t get to see often and I want to devote my attention to them. I will see you all in the New Year with more dysadventures and more interviews and more random things that come into my head. I’m really excited. I love y’all!
Hello Humans of the Internet! I thought that I had scheduled this post for Friday, but I didn’t. I also didn’t notice that I hadn’t posted anything until just now. So, I’m just going to change the title from Happy December to Happy Advent and act like I did this on purpose. Shh! don’t tell anyone. Continue reading “Happy Advent!”
