...even though I read a great blog post a couple months ago telling bloggers that they shouldn't feel ashamed/guilty that "real life" has gotten in the way of their blogging. (I can't remember where I read it now.) Because yes, while I absolutely love blogging (it's been almost two years now!), I still have a … Continue reading I Feel the Need to Apologize…
And now we come to the podcast that started it all: Welcome to Night Vale. I started listening to this podcast in 2015 or so, and fell off the wagon for a few years. (According to the Night Vale community, though, you're not true Night Vale Trash unless you're like 50+ episodes behind the current … Continue reading Podcasts: Welcome to Night Vale

History is full of stories we think we know. … Continue reading Podcasts: Unobscured, Season 1: The Salem Witch Trials

I remember being super intrigued by the … Continue reading First Impression Friday: “The Hazel Wood” by Melissa Albert
Original recipe located here. Well, well, well. It's been a long time since I've done a recipe review on the blog, mostly because I haven't been cooking as much as I used to. Or, rather, I'm cooking, but I'm not trying anything new. This past week I needed to have some sort of easy-to-make dish … Continue reading Recipe Review: The Best Coffee Cake. Ever.
