Content warning: discussion of rape and abuse. This is long overdue. I wasn't ready before, which is why it's taken so long, but now I have to get this off my chest. I can't keep protecting this man to avoid backlash when other girls may be at risk. The man that raped me is Melchizedek... Continue Reading →
What is love?
Backstory: I used to use an app/site called LyfApp wherein people have a safe space to essentially live journal their feelings on different "journeys" in their lives. Then helpful Lyfers can comment their support and/or suggestions underneath. So one Lyfer had posted about their uneasiness with feeling like they no longer loved their partner. They...

Spring Cleaning, Business Edition
Hello world! This week my husband and I went through our clothes and other things and one by one decided how often, if ever, we use them and which were worth keeping.

Depression Naps: Helpful or Harmful?

Can Men and Women Be Friends?
This is an age old question that people have debated over. In this modern age a knee jerk response might be, "Duh, how can you even ask that?" But there are still others who will say, "Not really. Not close friends because the sexual tension is always there." So what's my stance? The short answer... Continue Reading →
