I’m back. No, really I am this time. Honestly. Back.


This has been the oddest start to a new year I’ve ever had. But honestly, it’s also been one of the best. I won’t go into details, but in January I tried something terrifying, learned something about myself, and grew into myself just a little bit more. It feels odd to say I’m growing into myself at the ripe old age that I am, but I am still. Every day I feel more like myself.


And after doing that scary thing, I find myself much more willing to jump headfirst into other scary things. Turns out believing in yourself makes a difference. I am in my 30s. This is a new lesson, apparently.


And after making a choice that felt best for me, I’m find it easier to trust myself.

Basically, what I’m saying is this has been an amazing month, a month I’ll keep in a special place in my heart for the rest of time.


Now that I have all this excess of energy, I’m diving back headfirst. Also, we had a blizzard. There’s nothing like forced, snowy boredom for hatching schemes. And a happy soul infects other people with its mad schemes. Sorry, friends.



Lately I’ve been playing Don’t Starve Together with Jordan, Pay and E4 — one of the hardest games I’ve played in a while and I take a lot of joy in burning down forests as a spooky ghost. More on that later.


I’ve also FINALLY convinced someone to play Minecraft with me — a lot more on that later, but for now (and forgive me, please, for taking a picture of my screen, I am NOT that lazy but I am playing on the xbox and I … ok I am that lazy, I haven’t figured out screenshots or twitch).
