green tea bath

While watching far too much YouTube after yet another breakup, I stumbled across this video by Safiya Nygaard. (I love her channel, by the way.) Anyway, while at a Japanese spa, she takes a couple of green tea baths, as it’s supposed to be good for your skin. Green tea is full of antioxidants, so…

getting healthy

I’m trying to take better care of myself. For me, that means: learning to manage my depression eating healthy exercising cutting negative influences out of my life trying to focus on the positive I’ve been to see a therapist and a doctor for my depression, and they were both wonderful and helpful. I also recently…

therapy

So I’m finally going to a counselor for my depression tomorrow. I’ve been stubborn about it for nearly a year now… Really I just didn’t like the idea of talking to some stranger about my personal life and issues. But after finally talking to a friend about my suicidal thoughts, I realized that it’s become…

something I’m working on

Be kind to others. You can disagree without being cruel. There is a difference between standing up for what you believe, and shoving your opinion down someone’s throat so hard they choke.

art and relationship thoughts

I didn’t finish Inktober. I kind of realized that I wasn’t putting enough effort into making good art, and I’d rather take the time to make it good. I don’t have a lot of free time currently due to work and school, but eh… That’s the way it goes sometimes. I’ve been cleaning my ex-boyfriend…

Inktober! (sketches #1-2)

I totally forgot about Inktober! I haven’t participated before, but several of my friends have. I did two today because I missed yesterday. You can find more info about Inktober here, and you can also follow me on Instagram at readyplayerart3mis (yes, I exchanged Facebook for another social media site). 😑 These are definitely not my…

life without Facebook

I deactivated my Facebook account a couple of weeks ago. Shocking, isn’t it? I’ve had a Facebook account since it came out, back in the days when it was only meant for college students. I’ve tried to go without it several times before, but I was just too addicted. I also used it to keep…

this is how nerds have fun

I apparently forgot to blog about some fun little things I did over the summer. I’ve been on a quest to find new things I like. So, onwards! I bought myself flowers. Why not? They were pretty and inexpensive, and I got to enjoy them on my table for a few days. I painted my…

how to have back to school success!

I’m really glad to be back in school. I’m currently working on my undergraduate degree.  I didn’t have good study habits in high school, and that didn’t serve me well when I did College Part One ten years ago. Therefore, now that I’m older and a bit wiser, I’m trying to train myself to have…
