My second dose was about 12:30 pm and by 10:30 I couldn’t pinpoint what exactly, but something felt off. By 3:30 am the body aches and chills and sweats had keptContinue reading “Holy Vaccine Response, Batman”

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”
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!”

Ok, I’ll call your bluff
On Friday, August 13, 2021, I posted a photo to Instagram of my hair; proud of how long I’ve managed to get it since shaving it for St. Baldricks in January of 2017.
