breaking

I have seen my father break. Crushed under the weight of the illness and death of his own father when I was a teenager. Then again when cancer took his mother and only brother within mere weeks of each other. I know what it looks like when my father breaks. And there is no shame... Continue Reading →

Since You’ve Been Gone

I can breathe for the first time...Just kidding. After about a year's absence I kinda just have to start over here. Here are the major highlights: I started a new job! šŸ™‚ Our dog died. šŸ˜¦ I restarted and then quit grad school. Again. šŸ˜¦ I've gained about 20 pounds. šŸ˜¦ One out of four... Continue Reading →

I purchased the finnspaceĀ domain name today. Is that what it's called? I'm just techy enough to be dangerous. HiĀ again internet. Photo byĀ Arnel HasanovicĀ onĀ Unsplash

Template Changes Equal Procrastination

I have an overwhelming list of things to do. So I think I'll do the completely unnecessary tasks of messing with blog templates, editing photos, and creating websites. If I could get paid for this I'd be golden. Happy Weekend! Photo byĀ Chris BarbalisĀ onĀ Unsplash

Which came first, the organized Finn or the efficient Finn? Half the time I feel like I'm barely keeping it together without... Continue Reading →

UPDATE: It fit! Mostly. I mean, I wore it to theĀ  burlesque show with some super... Continue Reading →

Differing viewpoints are fascinating arenā€™t they? Every argument has multiple facets and the people holding steadfast to their positions have different histories, experiences, and reasons for feeling as they do. Variety is the spice of life and makes the world go ā€˜round, right? If we all thought exactly the same way (or were forced to)... Continue Reading →

when your friends have cancer

My friends are sick. Two of them, from completely different circles in my life. I am what they have in common. That, and cancer. Bone cancer, breast cancer. They want to take my friend's jaw completely off. They've already taken part of my friend's breast. A singer's jaw. A mother's breast. Life is full of... Continue Reading →
