STILL Obsessed With The Obsessed Network

What is The Obsessed Network? It is a network of podcasts that focus on various areas of true crime, and it is one of the only things that got me sanely through quarantine. It all started a new friendship and a desire to do a podcast between Patrick Hinds and Gillian Pensavalle. The success of that initial podcast, called "True Crime Obsessed," would launch a network where true crime lovers could feel at home and get their true crime fix with a side of humor.

The Lasting Impact of Matthew Shepard On 90s LGBTQIA+ Youth

If you weren't a closeted teen in the 1990s (or even a teen for those older readers. or even alive for the younger ones), then you can not fully grasp what it was to be LGBTQ in this decade. Believe me when I tell you that for many of us it was a time not just of the typical confusion and rigamarole that comes with being a queer teen at any time, but also a time of immense fear.

Creating With ADHD

Existing and living with ADHD comes with explicit and seemingly neverending challenges. Adulting with ADHD brings more fun into the game. Being in a long-term, committed relationship, being a mother, having a job. All of these bring new issues and challenges to my neurodivergent mind, some more difficult to overcome than others. Writing and creating, however, it is in a category by themselves.

The New Pace Of the 1990s

There was an unmistakable pace that came into existence during the 1990s. It is not clear exactly why, but the pace of life had been ramping up all during the eighties. When the nineties burst onto the calendar, it did so with an urgency that was as of yet unknown throughout the world.Whether it was…

Why Are We The Forgetten Years

So, many moons ago, I discussed how I would focus onexactly what I felt made those years from 1979ish to 1983 its own"generation" and with those born in those years not really able tofit into either Gen X or Millenials. We grew up in a weird time. My wife was born in 1984; we are…

I’m Back

So, after some health issues, I am back. I feel a lot better and am ready to get back to it all, including my journey to a healthier me. However, it feels like more of a hill to climb than it did initially. I was making such significant progress and then being knocked down. Now…

Hands off my Buffy and Avengers

There is a lot to be said about my obsession with Marvel and BtVS. I know that a lot of people don't get it. That and my loyalty to Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, especially in light of the ever-growing allegations against Joss Whedon and his apparent love of abusing his power. How can I, who rails against…

I Can’t Even

So, I realized something as I sat to write this. I said that my next blog was going to be about the current political situation in America. But I can't even. I can't. My feelings on this are still raw and right on edge. So before I can even analyze how I feel about it…

Ugh. Lifestyle Changes.

Alright, before we jump into more of the political things, let's have a good old fashioned rant on how much I hate dieting and exercising. However, there is absolutely no more procrastinating, no more falling off the wagon. I have to lose weight and get healthy and have not just a moment but a lifestyle…

Why Have I Been MIA?

So I have been AWOL on my blog. Not for the first time, but this time was different. This was not me being lazy or not motivated. I have been missing in action because I have been making money and working as a content writer.My wife was laid off, and I kicked the writing into…

It is hard to believe that we are 10 days into September. It seems like it both took forever to get here and that it came too quickly, and how it feels like both, I do not know. Let's be real. 2020 has been an incredibly long and challenging year. I do not think that…

Another Week Begins

So, its another week in 2020 and starting out as bizarrely as the rest of the year. When you wake up and read the news that people in another state are getting their mail-in ballots to vote safely amidst the global pandemic that has the current president's face on it telling them not to let…

A trip to the doctor, oh boy

So, today I got to go to my physical with the doctor. Yeah, that is fun in a COVID world. Chairs in the waiting room are roped off, everyone is wearing masks and face shields. Some of them even have on goggles as well.It is very much like getting to step onto the page or…

Chasing Those Dreams…

Have you ever had a dream? Something that you honestly have wanted since you can remember, or before? I honestly have had a few. First - get a superpower and become a member of the Avengers - MARVEL ALL THE WAY. Second - Be the one to discover the Force really exists and get my…
