Refresh and Reframe

I’m not quitting. It took some self-reflection, counseling, crying and some kind words and some “We’re going to the zoo [next month], you have no choice!” words from caring friends, but I’m not giving up on the blog.

My attempts to be enthusiastic dwindled and died as the month of October progressed, and I suddenly was overwhelmed with depression, anxiety, panic and paranoia. I can't pinpoint what sparked this episode. Did it creep up on me and… Continue reading A Little Update

Enthusiastic Show and Tell

I know I said I wouldn’t describe myself as an enthusiastic person, and I still don’t, but I do have things in my life that I am enthusiastic about. So, today I’ll share with you something I enjoy enthusiastically: The Ohio Renaissance Festival. I’ve been going to the Ren Fest since I was a kid… Continue reading Enthusiastic Show and Tell
