Quarantine Life. It's been a thing. Here's a round-up. Professional Life. I've been working from home since mid-March. It was initially a huge adjustment for me; I've worked remotely before, many times, but in a space where it's happening 8 hours a day, 7 days a week--there were a lot of tough moments. Structurally, I'm [...]
If you're living on this side of Earth, you've heard that Harry and Meghan have decided to significantly change their status with the royal family. (I won't link to any articles because, whew chile, the bias.) In other words, H&M want to step back from being senior members of the royal family, become financially independent, [...]
I haven't written anything creatively in a long while. Fiction is my thing, my jam. You know that. But it's been excessively hard for me to hunker and write. I have some suspicions as to why. Let's talk them over. No inspo. Like most artists, inspiration is so huge for me. I need that flow, [...]
Symbols. We see symbols in everything. For four years (and really, for many years before, since I was an avid reader and was already consciously and subconsciously doing this), I analyzed plot lines, characters, meanings, subtext.

The current state of things. Winter is weird. Le sigh. Happy Monday, dear reader.

Day 31. A whole month of talking to y'all everyday about my favorite season in some way, shape, or form. A whole month of [...]
As promised, I debuted my new fall lippie at the office today. And pic'ed it. See below. Shall we break down why Smoked Purple is a winner for me? 1. It's matte, but it goes on so smooth for me. Sure, a bit of balm helps before applying but I find it really easy to [...]
Guess who went to the mall today... Yes, I did a tiny bit of Sunday shopping. (1) Cat eye sunnies from New York & Company (2) New lipstick and lip liner from MAC: Smoked Purple and Nightmoth, respectively. (The saleslady was slick; she heard me saying that I had no intention of purchasing makeup and [...]
It's a gorgeous day. It's edible and gorgeous and autumnal and even warmer here than the season calls for. Enjoy your Saturday, wherever you are.
