Marjorie's Forgeries

I’ve mentioned IML several times over the past few months, but for the uninitiated, International Mr. Leather is an annual competition that takes place in Chicago during Memorial Day weekend. There are around 60 contestants every year, and at IML 40, I will be one of them.

I qualified for the contest about a year and a half ago (when I won the title of Mr. Firedancer Dallas 2016-2017, which is worth a story of its own one of these days), and at the time, I was like, “Nifty! I’ma go to IML at some unspecified point in the distant future. That’ll be a hoot.” However, now that the event is 11 weeks away, I’m like, “OMG OMG WHY IS THIS HAPPENING TO ME?!” But hey, at least I don’t suffer from any kind of acute mental illness to make the situation even more terrifying, amirite?

Excuse me while I scream incoherently into the void

My classes this semester are making me completely rethink my entire educational plan. This is not actually a bad thing. School is stressful. This semester in particular has just been a nightmare unlike anything I have experienced before (I literally cannot miss one more day or either class without being dropped; it's not even half-way … Continue reading Excuse me while I scream incoherently into the void

To Drop, or Not To Drop… That is the Question

I almost dropped my biology class last Monday. I still might, I don't know. Allow me to explain. This semester, I'm taking a biology lecture with a lab, because it's required. I knew from the first week that my teacher just... wasn't my cup of tea, let's say. Her lecture style and my learning style … Continue reading To Drop, or Not To Drop… That is the Question

Witchy Book Review: The Path of a Christian Witch by Adelina St. Clair

This post contains affiliate links. Please click here to read my disclosure policy. So, as I’ve mentioned, I’ve been attending church, recently. While I didn’t think I’d actively dislike it, I will admit that I was surprised to find that I actually enjoy it, enough that I’ve gone weekly for the last five weeks. I … Continue reading Witchy Book Review: The Path of a Christian Witch by Adelina St. Clair

Google Maps Can Rot in Hell

I'm trying really hard not to let stress get me down. With school, that can be tough, because my biology class is so labor intensive. I hardly have time to breathe, let alone do anything else. Spring Break is coming up, though. Just three more weeks of classes and then one glorious week off. I'm … Continue reading Google Maps Can Rot in Hell

A Witch’s Beginnings, part three

Part One. Part Two. Wicca has a “harm none” edict which felt stifling to me in my late teens and early twenties. Not that “harm none” isn’t a solid principle to adhere to, but so many of the resources I found at the time promoted a sort of spiritual altruism that I just couldn’t get … Continue reading A Witch’s Beginnings, part three

Open Mouth, Insert Foot

If missing my biology class didn't count as two absences today (the lecture and the lab), I wouldn't be leaving the apartment at all. As it stands, I intend to skip the lab. I just don't feel up to it, today (and not just because I think I'm coming down with a cold). I wish … Continue reading Open Mouth, Insert Foot

(Flashback) Foodie Friday: Cake Craft

Once upon a time, I was a functional human being with hobbies and interests. One of those interests was cake decorating. I even took the Wilton classes offered through Michael's about five years ago (I never finished and would like to retake them one of these days). I've been too busy with school this week … Continue reading (Flashback) Foodie Friday: Cake Craft
