An Entrance and an Exit // life + camp nano + another hiatus + other such paraphernalia

*casually slinks in* Did you miss me? (If not, please go away.) Yes, 'tis I, returned from the void of... everything. And boy howdy, do I have stories to tell! If you're not sitting on a stable, flat surface right now, I highly suggest reseating yourself. What follows is a long and intense summary of [...]

The Misery of Spring // a series of disturbed facial expressions

The Misery of Spring // a series of disturbed facial expressions

Hullo, minions! I was poking through some old drafts yesterday and came upon an aged, dusty post dated exactly one year ago today.

Between Worlds

Between Worlds

The Return of the Blogger (and some long and mostly boring obligatory life updates)

Aaaaand she's back! Really!! This is not another trick!!! *confetti and fireworks and glitter even though no one will ever believe me ever again* I told you it wouldn't be long before I returned from my hiatus, and lo and behold, here I am, bringing sarcasm and glitter in my wake.
