  • I’m (not) pro-therapy

    I’m anti-anti-therapy. So, I’m basically pro-therapy, and the title was basically clickbait. Why am I making this distinction? I’ve seemed to have turned some people off in my past because of how much I recommend trying therapy. I’ve had good experiences with therapy. That being said, I acknowledge that many people haven’t, and I also acknowledge that being […]

  • It’s a life update! 6

    [This is an old blog post that I wrote at the end of April 2022, but I gotta just get it out there.] In my last update, I was all like, oh yeah, I’ll totally post a conlang update soon. So, as you can see, I definitely did not do that. I was working on […]

  • Abortion, life, politics, protesting

    Right to be free of a parasite I don’t have a uterus, but I do like to share my feelings. I’m furious and afraid. Imagine sitting in a Discord voice call, playing Fortnite, and learning about the leaked draft that shows the Supreme Court’s intention to overturn Roe v. Wade. Just a bit surreal. Not […]

    My last post was the end of October report, which feels like it was forever ago. Since then, I’ve added five more things to my itch.io, the US presidential election happened, the holidays came and went, my partner had to get four MRIs, the MRIs found a non-cancerous brain tumor, she had to get a […]

  • Persona 4 Golden was a letdown, but Over Arms may not be

    As I’ve been recovering from my surgery, I’ve been playing Persona 4 Golden (as well as some Among Us, which has been fun)—I was really excited when it came to Steam as I thought it would be a good opportunity to play a game that seemed perfect for me that I missed out on as a kid. Well, […]

  • Making something like café cubano

    Let’s talk about my favorite hot coffee drink: the café cubano. I’ve talked a about coffee and I’ve shared some recipes, but I wanted to document the progress I’ve made in making my all-time favorite recipe. I’ll admit right now that my café cubano is not ‘real’ café cubano because I don’t actually make ‘real’ […]

  • Playing with New Orleans cold brew and iced coffee

    Here are a few more coffee recipes. These deal with making my favorite cold coffee drink: a New Orleans iced coffee. The important thing is that you need a coffee blend with chicory in it, or, of course, you can get a dark roast coffee and add chicory to it. Blue Bottle’s New Orleans cold […]

  • My collection of coffee recipes

    I’ve collected more than a few coffee recipes. Six of these recipes are for the Aeropress, and one recipe is for a French press or a Clever Coffee Dripper. Regarding the Aeropress, I always use the inverted method, and I always use a metal mesh filter—metal filters will let oils through, resulting in a fuller […]
