Hello humans of the internet! It’s Valentine’s Day. But today I wanted to talk about something else. Specifically that I wrote a book. I’m super proud of it and I don’t know what else to say about it. I thought it would be easier to write about the thing I spent so much time writing. It’s called I Still Wear Black Eyeliner and is a poetry book about going from a being an angsty teenager to being an adult who might still be a little angsty sometimes. If you’re interested here is a link to it: I Still Wear Black Eyeliner
Hello humans of the internet! It’s been a long time since I’ve written a blog post. I’m pretty sure it’s been more than a month. I’m sorry about that. I’ve been editing. And editing. And editing. But now it’s all almost done, which is crazy.
I wrote a poetry book about the emotional journey of going from being 14 to 24. And now it’s so close to being a book that people can buy. It feels so weird. Most of the poems are ones that I wrote recently, but I included some that I wrote as a teenager to show the journey.
Later this week I’ll post information on where you can purchase my book if anyone is interested. I’m just so excited to finally be a writer, it’s something I’ve always dreamed of but thought I would never be able to do. I thought that because I’m dyslexic I wouldn’t be able to share my love of poems and stories. And even if no one likes my book at least I did it.
Hello humans of the internet! Today I thought it would be fun to compile a list of some of the plants that haven’t worked out. Before reading that, please enjoy this picture of a thriving nerve plant!
On to the not so thriving plants.
- The elephant bush. This is a plant that I was so excited about. And because of that, I got a little obsessed with and way over watered it. This is definitely one that I’d like to try again and this time I’ll make sure to water it correctly.
- The sensitive plant. Another one that I was super excited about. I grew this one from seeds, it was thriving. At least, it was thriving until Soot discovered that it moved and attacked it. I tried to save it.
- Aloe seeds. This one isn’t a fail on my part because the seeds did sprout, but the seeds that came up were a cacti not an aloe.
- A moon valley pilea. I don’t think I ever made a post talking about this one. I think this one must have had some kind of fungus as it went from healthy to rotting within days of me bringing it home.
- An aluminum plant. This one was thriving, but I put the moon valley pilea next to it and it also rotted super quickly.
Now, let’s take a look at my thriving Norfolk island pine, so I can feel a little bit better.
Hello humans of the internet! Yes I know that it’s a week into 2020. I’ve been busy over thinking this post. It’s the first post of the year. The first post of the decade. That’s a lot of self imposed pressure. I have come to the conclusion that it’s best to start the decade as I intend to continue: low expectations and an attempt at humor.

Hello humans of the internet! It’s a few days after Christmas. I’ve spent the past couple of days just hanging out with my family.
It seems like the bigger families get, the more obligations you have at Christmas time.
Why is this called begonias if you’re just going to talk about Christmas? I’m getting there. One of my Christmas presents was this beautiful begonia.
So, I’ve been doing a lot of research on begonias because I can’t let it die. In my research I learned that apparently begonias die back in the winter….so in retrospect, I’ve definitely composted not dead begonias. But now I know better and this beautiful plant will not die. I mean look at it. It’s got so much color! But, yeah I think I know what to do. Any and all tips are welcome.
Much love I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and is excited for the new year!
Hello humans of the internet! Are you still trying to think of a Christmas gift for someone? I decided to make a list of Christmas gift ideas.

Hello humans of the internet! I had a lot of fun putting this together. It’s on my bed, but I think it would be cute on a couch. I meant to post this earlier but I got distracted by laundry and cleaning and being an adult (also playing video games a little.)

Hello humans of the internet! I went to the store because groceries and of course because I was bored I played the claw machine. It’s not that exciting of a blog post. I got groceries and played the claw machine and won! Now I have a super soft polar bear. It is stained with red on the back which is the exact same color as the red Santa that it was leaning on. I’m assuming that it had something to do with the color and the machine being in the sun. It’s a super cute polar bear and it matches some of Christmas decorations. I will wash it when I get home and see if the stain comes out.
Hello humans of the internet! Yes, I’m decorating one tiny room for Christmas and I’m basically doing one little space at a time. Today the decoration area is the bookshelf (it’s secretly a night stand).
