Projects Update

It’s been an insane year, hasn’t it? I’ve been using the time to get ahead on some projects that needed doing, but I do have to admit that with my mental health, it is sometimes a battle. A lot of basic mental health and self care routines I had before Covid are tied to going…

Social Media Fasting

I’m writing after almost a week of a light social media fast/vacation that I started in order to focus more on the spiritual aspect of this holiday season. I started on the 17th or 18th, and I intend to go til after the new year (if I can make it). If you’re wondering, I got…

Sooooooo……

I’m not dead. Yeah, I know. I’m sorry. I keep saying that I’ll do stuff and then I don’t. I’ve been fighting depression this summer, and dealing with the government, earlier this year I had bad/stalking neighbors to deal with (they are finally gone, both of them, THANK THE GODS!!!) and other stuff that just…
