Fanfiction Shame

Photo by Pixabay on Pexels.com I have come to realize that I have written way more fanfiction than I have original fiction. Although I feel good about people enjoying my work in my multiple fandoms and I am happy about bringing to life my ideas on characters that I love, I find myself saying, "Okay this…

writing writing & convincing myself to keep writing

Recently, I have been wanting to write, but I have nothing that inspires me to write. I just want to because I miss my relationship with words and I miss seeing what I've written and being proud of it. That's all good, but I realized that's not why I write. I write because I love it,…

Last Therapy Session

  Photo by Mikey Dabro on Pexels.comToday, I want to take a moment to look back and appreciate myself and the progress I have made in the past few months. My last meeting with my therapist was different from the others. Nothing overtly major, just different, in a good way? For one, we didn't have…

mind thoughts

It's so weird that putting holes in our ears is socially acceptable but removing a fetus from a body isn't. Society is so very weird and its rules commonly benefit the already privileged. Is it always going to be like this? I have been going through a lot recently. It seemd like every bad thing…

Finding a Home

Note: This is a story sequel for Chignon by Chi Chun. This was written for a literature class. 🙂   What, after all, is eternal in this world, and what is worth being serious about? “Like I said, this is the main question you need to answer in your final paper. Remember--”   The bell…

Some Updates? 8/22/2019

Hey there! It's been a hot minute since I've posted here, and there's really no reason for me to continue to do so since this blog is kind of just a place for me to let my feelings out there. Like, I don't intend to be this amazing journalist or storyteller on the internet. This…

Brains and Beauty

Growing up, I knew I wanted to make a difference in the world. Thus, I told myself that I would be ugly--because, after all, girls couldn't be both. Smarts and attractiveness? Preposterous! Now, I understand that this kind of thinking was part of my struggle with internalized misogyny. However, this wasn't an individual struggle. Most girls…

Jake Peralta and Emotions

  Often men in media are portrayed as macho statues with minimal emotion, unless it's toward sports. Think Ron Swanson, Tony Stark--those Manly Men who refuse to feel emotion, therefore are strong, masculine, and admirable. Masculinity being tied to lack of emotion has been a stereotype for a long time, but Brooklyn Nine-Nine's Jake Peralta refuses…
