Blogathon roundup

vdaysux wordle

VDAYSUX was a 50/50 success. The pro is that I actually finished it. I was fearful that I would fail. I was mentally hyping myself to stay awake for the 24 hours, but by 11 pm (which is about the time I go to bed), I couldn’t be arsed to keep my eyes open. In order to keep my time…

Roses are red, violets are blue

all my base are belong to you

Post 24 of 24 I DID IT. I MADE IT. BUT BARELY. Hearing the bloody alarm on my phone go off all day was horrible. I brought this upon myself but I am very proud that it worked out. So I leave you with a Valentine, a fitting – though retired – meme from many moons ago. Roses are red…

Aww

shiba

Post 23 of 24 I found this on aww. I think a better caption would have been: “Your authority is not recognized in Fort Kickass” But that was probably too easy. ONE MORE.

Flip the Script

Post 22 of 24 It had to look real. Bruise had to be shaped just so. Lampshade swayed like Newton’s law. Equal but opposite. It was the only heavy object within reach. Timed carefully. The neighbors would hear. They would see his car in the driveway. The wound would be temporary, Band-Aid. This house; a prison, An expensive gilded cage.

Home stretch

Post 21 of 24 Oh my god, I’m dying. Do you even know what time it is? I think when I do this next year, I’ll chose a less ambitious time frame. I’m dead on my feet. I’m not even sure I should be writing my thoughts about the whole process yet. I kind of want to let it percolate…

The arts are not a way to make a living

Go Into the Arts - Kurt Vonnegut

Post 20 of 24 They say you should never meet your heroes, they’ll only let you down. But what if you write them a letter asking for advice and they throw this blisteringly awesome observation in your face? You don’t have an excuse NOT to get into the arts anymore. It’s like daaaaamn, dropped the mic on y’all. Here is…

5 problems with social media

The reason we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our behind-the-scenes with everyone else's highlight reel

Post 19 of 24 This post’s featured image nails it perfectly. For my accessible readers, here’s the quote: The reason we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our behind-the-scenes with everyone else’s highlight reel. That would be on my list for sure. I know for a fact when I read some people’s posts, their lives are falling apart, but…

My zodiac & if I think it fits me

Post 18 of 24 Virgo is the sixth sign of the zodiac, to be exact, and that’s the way Virgos like it: exacting. Those born under this sign are forever the butt of jokes for being so picky and critical (and they can be), but their ‘attention to detail’ is for a reason: to help others. Virgos, more than any…

Ten interesting facts about myself

Post 17 of 24 No one in the world has my name. It’s also damn near unpronounceable but I wouldn’t change it for the world. I have an IMDb page. I took me almost 6 years to get my B.A. in English. Why? Halfway through, the Great Recession hit and I couldn’t pay my tuition. I didn’t get a single…

Songs on Shuffle

spice girls - spice

Post 16 of 24 So I am running out of topics but I saved an old blog a day challenge from a few years ago. One of the prompts was to: put your music player on shuffle and write the first 3 songs that play and what your initial thought is. Last Time Lover – Spice Girls Chapel of Love…
