    You ever have one of those moments where you just want to… power down? I am so burnt out from sensory overload. Life in general, I think. Things seem to pile on all at once and I just… get so tired. My daughter is being bullied at school. The worst of it is that the girl that it hurting my daughter is her friend. The day before yesterday things came to a head during their end of the year fun day, because this girl punched Emilie in the eye after Emilie said that she wanted to be alone. I’m having a bit of a crisis over it, because my first…

    I had planned on this post being a review of the new Whitechapel album, “The Valley,” but seeing as how it took Metal Blade like… three weeks to ship my order after my payment went through and was confirmed, and for some reason, Canada Post attempted to deliver it to a community four hours north of me, that post is going to have to be put on hold. Next time I’m just going to buy from Amazon. At least Canada Post was pretty good with re-routing the delivery and they didn’t give me too much shit. Canada Post has a tendency to be difficult, especially when they’re covering their own…

    Life has been crazy. I spent the majority of February working 12 hour shifts, both at the clinic and in the hospital, so of course I got sick. The latter half of February up until about three days ago I have just been an absolute mess. Apparently there has been a pretty nasty flu going around, but it didn’t feel like an influenza, so who knows. Aside from being ill in that regard, my health has been a bit in the toilet regardless. I was diagnosed two weeks ago with hypertension. Which caught me off guard because I didn’t feel any different than I normally do, but I guess that’s…

    Happy belated 2019 everyone! I kind of wanted to do a little “2018 in review” post, and I must admit… I’ve been a little bit tardy with it. Things have been a bit crazy the last couple of months, with work and being ill (I got some kind of viral gastroenteritis over the holidays – not fun at all lemme tell you), but things have settled a bit now. So… on with it, I guess? Favourite Album(s) of 2018: Carnifex’s Bury Me In Blasphemy. It’s was a short little EP of only fours songs, but my goodness… who knew a death metal cover of “Head Like A Hole” by Nine…

    Look what I got~! Finally, after years of who-hawing and contemplating, this beauty is mine: It took four, almost five hours, to complete and I was so proud of myself because I sat through the entire thing and didn’t gripe and I only needed a break once when my bottom cramped up (Brian’s chair has literally no padding on it – a fact that he himself admits). Thankfully, my wonderful boyfriend was there for company and he let me squeeze his hand because towards the end it was getting kind of dicey. Here was the finished product: It’s a beauty, non? It is on the side of my left thigh.…

    So, apparently, none of my browsers are digging the new WordPress plug-in “Gutenberg.” I haven’t been able to figure out why I haven’t been able to post the last few weeks… I deactivated “Gutenberg,” and presto change-o, problem solved-o. Problem-solving got me all like: Unfortunately, some of the written pieces I was working on got lost in translation… but I did manage to add four new poems to the writing section. I have some more notebooks to go through, but I am hoping by the end of the weekend, I can get the writing section beefed up. Here’s to hoping, anyhow! Things tend to change a lot right now in…

    I am back, my friends! There was a little hiccup in my web hosting (old billing information – bloody nightmare), but I have sorted out all of those issues, and I am back. I am so grateful that A Small Orange just suspended my account, instead of terminating it, because having to start over again with a new domain and a new blog and all of that nonsense would have been a nightmare. Especially now that I am starting to make plans and get things how I want them. You can’t really tell at the moment, but lets just say that I have a lot of things in the “draft”…
