Mercury Retrograde and Social Depression

I’m chalking the negative feelings I’m having towards some friends up to Mercury Retrograde and the fuckery it’s conducting with communication. I don’t usually “feel” Mercury Retrograde, because communication and decision making is always a nightmare for me (thanks, anxiety), but I’m feeling this one, I think. I’m just really sick of some of the … Continue reading Mercury Retrograde and Social Depression

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

Making Friends (and other less exciting stuff)

I'm really glad I started attending church. I've met so many nice people--everyone is always coming up and introducing themselves to me. I've even made a new friend! A lovely girl I'll be referring to as "Alex" on this blog (remember, I don't use people's real names). Alex invited me to a "Galentine's Day" party … Continue reading Making Friends (and other less exciting stuff)

Stressed, Blessed, and Oddly Not Depressed

By the time this posts, I will be on my way to my first day of classes for the Spring semester. Witches, I have never been looking forward to a semester more. Bring on the distractions! Last week, I explained to Pup that I don't think we're going to be getting back together. I asked … Continue reading Stressed, Blessed, and Oddly Not Depressed

Friday Faves: Follow Friday (aka Blogroll)

[OMG what is it with me forgetting to queue up my Friday Faves??? Is it because it's a weekend? Do I just cease to function after noon on Thursday? Because with school starting next week, that's gonna be a problem for me! Anyway, sorry I'm late! Here's a post!] I love my little blogging family. … Continue reading Friday Faves: Follow Friday (aka Blogroll)

Witchy Wednesday: Church and the Agnostic Witch

So, I've been thinking about going to church, lately. No, no, don't worry. I'm not converting and my soul hasn't been "saved." I still practice witchcraft and my beliefs are still what they have been (though I acknowledge that spirituality is always changing and my beliefs are not set in stone). I'm just looking for … Continue reading Witchy Wednesday: Church and the Agnostic Witch

Just stupid little depression things.

Contrary to popular belief, I am trying very hard to be optimistic. In general, I've been doing okay. My sleep schedule is semi-on-track, which is good. I'm excited to start school next week (okay, "excited" is a strong word; I'm ready to start school next week and get one semester closer to a damn degree). … Continue reading Just stupid little depression things.

Happy Thanksgiving

Isn't it convenient that Thanksgiving is always on a Thursday, and I occasionally post in a category called Thankful Thursday? It wasn't even planned. Like most Americans, I'm spending the day watching TV and gorging on turkey, mashed potatoes, and gravy (and rolls and deviled eggs, which are the unsung heroes of Thanksgiving). Like a … Continue reading Happy Thanksgiving

Diary: Learning to Friend

First of all, I want to send a big, warm, cuddly, witchy thanks to Sadie Wolf for being the first person to buy me a coffee! I really appreciate it! And a Happy Halloween to you, too! (I know Halloween was three days ago, but I'm a witch and every day is Halloween.) Related: To … Continue reading Diary: Learning to Friend

Monday Musings: Panic Mode Initiated

So, last week I mentioned that something funny was going on with my unemployment compensation. And I figure out what it was: I don't receive it anymore! I was under the misunderstanding that the state takes your maximum payout amount and divides it evenly over the course of a year. So, for the sake of … Continue reading Monday Musings: Panic Mode Initiated
