The concepts of “nature” and “natural”

Towards the beginning of my Nature and Humanity course, we ventured into the topic of “nature” and “natural” and what those words mean to us and how they’re used in day to day speech in ways that are effective, problematic, and everywhere in between. Today I am going to share with you my initial post,Continue reading “The concepts of “nature” and “natural””

It’s been a while

And I’m not going to make apologies or excuses. I’m a real person with a real life to handle in addition to my business. But I do miss everyone. What’s been keeping me so busy? I started classes to get a Bachelor’s Degree! Returning to college in my 30s has been equal parts time consumingContinue reading “It’s been a while”

Holy Vaccine Response, Batman

Many of you knew I got two doses of the Pfizer Covid vaccine in early 2021 and that the second dose kicked my butt. 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”

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”

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”

If you haven’t heard of this site before, you should definitely familiarize yourself. Their mission is to create inclusive and safe environments acrossContinue reading “Strands for Trans”

We did it!

Folks… we did it! We’ve officially filled our first box to send back to Green Circle for recycling!!! 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”
