Day Owl Backpacks

I’m not going to lie to you, I’d never spent this much on a backpack before. But there were a number of things that went into deciding to bite the bullet and go for it and honestly, this is probably the best backpack I’ve ever owned. I bundled my backpack with a matching cord pouchContinue reading “Day Owl Backpacks”

More Color Correction Fun

And this time on myself! The main purpose of this post is to really document and highlight how much work really goes into color corrections, even ones that seem “simple,” and to stress how important it is to make sure you’re informed and prepared for what’s going to go into a correction. The first thingContinue reading “More Color Correction Fun”

It’s Indigenous People’s Day!

When I was growing up, the second Monday in October was called Columbus Day because allegedly this guy comes in and “discovers” a continent where people were already living. Since the arrival of European colonizers, the people indigenous to North America have been repeatedly taken advantage of and systematically oppressed, along with pretty much everyContinue reading “It’s Indigenous People’s Day!”

Kind Laundry

What started as a combined search effort to be both lower waste as well as not have to carry a big jug of detergent back and forth when I needed to do the laundry at work led me to discover Kind Laundry. Are laundry detergent sheets a new thing? Somewhat. Is Kind the only companyContinue reading “Kind Laundry”

Since it doesn’t have a high caffeine content, it’s delightful any time of the day. MUD\WTR™ is a coffeeContinue reading “MUD/WTR”

I have no idea how much it actually weighs but I had a hard time lugging it through the salon building to my suite for its scheduled pickup today. Everything in that box would have ended upContinue reading “We did it!”

I have a lot of feelings on the recent Texas abortion ban

Fair warning to those who may be affected, I will be discussing my feelings on termination of pregnancies. If you’re someone who is unwilling or unable to acknowledge a position other than the traditional “pro-life” stance, this may not be the post for you. I’m going to start with a post that I’ve copied fromContinue reading “I have a lot of feelings on the recent Texas abortion ban”

Well that was one heck of a rollercoaster

I like to think I’ve generally been careful throughout the whole pandemic. During such unprecedented times it’s hard to know what the “right” choice really is, or even if there’s one at all. Are you ready for this rollercoaster with me? It starts on Sunday, August 15. I’ve already canceled my plans to see theContinue reading “Well that was one heck of a rollercoaster”
