C Is For Cookie, And That’s Good Enough For Me…

“Average. It was the worst, most disgusting word in the English language. Nothing meaningful or worthwhile ever came from that word.” ― Portia de Rossi, Unbearable Lightness: A Story of Loss and Gain Today, I wasn’t feeling entirely well, and while I was resting and thinking about what today’s blog topic should be, I drew […]

Y Is For Youth, And Ode To The Trolls! :)

You may have noticed there haven’t been too many articles promoting my writing, interviews, and other creative projects. Sadly, I think the illness that’s kept me inside has robbed me of a good deal of inspiration. There are so many blank pages staring back at me. 🙁 Fortunately, I think I went and broke the […]

The Government Is Closed, But Blogs Are Still Open….

Today, the United States government has entered a state of partial shut-down, and I anticipate that things will be at a standstill for some time before they begin to look up. I’m not intending to write about this very current issue, even though it is relevant to all of us. However, I did post a […]

Tar And Feathers Are A Great Way To Make An Exit…

Yes, you know you were waiting for it. Due to the overwhelming (positive and negative) response to my article this week on “The Myth Of The Geek Girl”, and the many threads of discussion that spun off from it, I was asked to write a companion piece. Obviously, I am a glutton for punishment. *laughs* […]

Check Out My Latest Essay!

Sometimes, what starts out as a piece on your personal blog can evolve into an essay that strangely finds the right home. I posted a personal piece on this topic about a year ago, after feeling rather alienated, isolated, and generally unappreciated at a Meetup hosted by The Guy I Am Currently Dating. With a […]

Now Refusing To Enter Sleep Mode….

I have been feeling a little melancholy lately, and in this strange place of loneliness. Sometimes, I can’t help but take stock of my life and upon looking around, feel that I don’t have very many people in this world which I’ve created for myself. Once upon a time, I did, but it seems that […]

“Ophelia” Reaches Goal!:)

Thank you to everyone who donated to Ophelia’s Wayward Muse, and to everyone who gave me advice about the publication process! My goal was to raise $600 towards publication of my poetry compilation, and ended up raising $625, so it means a lot to me that my friends believed in this project, and in helping […]

Being MIA, And Drug Q & A…..

You may have noticed that I’ve been strangely MIA from this blog for awhile. There are a lot of reasons I could give, from trying to work out feelings and relationship issues with people in my life, to having work to do, to feeling absolutely uninspired to do anything because I am now permitted to […]

Fifty Shades Of “I Will Pay You To Stop Writing This Crap”…..

One of the most popular pages on this blog, and one of the most frequent search terms that unsuspectingly lands people here is “Fifty Shades Of Grey”. A while back, I wrote an article about my hesitance to read these novels, and since I’ve now heard enough feedback from the rest of the world, I […]

Finding The Keys To Balance….

I meant to spend time today writing about the trouble I got myself into while visiting Charlotte last week, but suddenly and without warning, got overwhelmed by work. So, on a related note…..: It’s no secret that Americans have a lot of unhealthy habits. Study after study is being performed in order to prove that […]
