New Things

I was working on a different post for this week that I was going to wake up early and finish today for you guys, but then I went to bed at 4 am and got up at 6 pm thus throwing off all my weekend plans. I could have hustled to finish the piece I... Continue Reading →

To A Young Girl

Listen closely, pretty girl, to these words. Others will lie and say they are not true and that you must focus your energy on keeping that pretty look. But that is a lie. You might think that you are less than the girl with blue eyes or blonde hair or clear skin or subtle curves... Continue Reading →

How Can I Convince Her?

I tell her how damaging diet culture is and how it makes us think we must shrink ourselves and deprive ourselves of so many good things, and she nods, agrees,  then takes a bite out of her meal bar. I tell her eating less than 1500 calories a day can cause lasting harm to her... Continue Reading →

Ableism Is Real and More Common Than You Think

Note: I wrote this piece in December of 2017 and shared it on Lyf which is an app/website where you can openly talk about things considered too taboo for social media and receive support from a virtual community.

The soil is rich with insect memories crawling in and out of my brain. Clicking legs... Continue Reading →

My Diagnoses

I’ve been living with mental illness for over ten years (possibly more, but with my memory as the only indicator it’s difficult to determine how early I started showing signs). Despite this, I did not receive an official diagnosis until last year. It’s not that I didn’t seek out help before, I did. It’s just... Continue Reading →

Logo

I am saving up for the iPad Pro and Apple Pen so I can fully enjoy the awesomeness that is Procreate. Until then I am using Procreate Pocket for the iPhone, which is how I made my logo. She's a bit rough (you try drawing with a phone), but isn't she cute?

Promise Ring

Sounds like bells drip off your lips pooling into a pond of promise. Vows ring out of golden tulips singing sweet petal soft sonnets. Whispers become songs from sanctuary towers chiming a reminder of time. With time comes growth and volume rises lifting you up Liberty’s spine. In this tower lives a bell so bulbous...
