Euphoria // michigan sunsets + kitten pictures + a small sampling of anna weirdness

Guys, I'm not gonna lie: Life is pretty great right now. I know, I know, I just spent five weeks agonizing over some silly graduation, and before that, flipping out over basic social interactions and the price of eggs. The world is morbid and dark and determined to be miserable, and as a cynical INTJ, [...]

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. Why I never posted it is beyond me, but after reading through it (and subsequently laughing my face off), I decided it would be quite appropriate for today. Enjoy the misery of [...]

Project Inspire // appreciating some pretty cool people

Hello, minions! Today, we clear the stage for Project Inspire. What is Project Inspire, you ask? *snickers* Look, I'm a rather miserly soul when it comes to my writing, and generally maintain the attitude of-- But I'm not so arrogant that I won't admit if it weren't for the people who've cheered me on over [...]

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. You guys are troopers. [...]

Soup Cozies, Corn Husks, and Anna’s Makeshift Head Gear

My sister is in Peru. (Smooth, Sarah. Just jump right in, and maybe they won't notice that you skipped the intro after seventeen failed attempts to write one.) As of yesterday, my sister has been in Peru for a week, and she'll stay in Peru for another week yet. Laying concrete, or something equally monotonous. [...]

Thanks Be to the Simple Stuff

Thanks Be to the Simple Stuff

Apparently, today is Thanksgiving. (Otherwise known as "National Day of Food".) I would first like to state that I'm rather annoyed my posting schedule has to coincide with a holiday. It's very inconsiderate of the holiday. I had something lovely all written out, AHEAD OF TIME, just waiting to be posted. But then I realized [...]

Another Baran Vacation, Part 2— Featuring Hazardous Puzzles, 17th Century Swords, and Bird Poop

Hellooo! As you can see, my wit has returned, and I can once again write a decent post. Hallelujah for that. In the meantime, I hope you've been anxiously awaiting Part 2 of our vacation. If you haven't,  you can get out now, because I don't need your negativity on my blog. If you haven't [...]
