August 27, 2021 Theme: A silly fear you have

Hey there, everyone! How are you all doing? Well, I hope!

I’m here today with another theme for this week! I had taken a look at my theme list, but all of them looked too serious, and I just don’t feel like doing serious this week, so I’ll just do a little question:

What is a silly fear that you have? Something that has never happened to you and probably never will?

Mine is the idea that my bed will collapse while I’m asleep. Why? Who knows. It’s a pretty sturdy bed, it’s not wonky or anything, and no bed of mine has ever collapsed – with or without me. But it’s one of those little things I find to worry about when I can’t fall asleep.

What about you? What’s your silly fear? Share it with me, I promise I won’t laugh!

See you on the next!

August 13, 2021 Theme: TERFs

Hey there, everyone! How are you all doing? Well, I hope!

After some thinking, I’ve decided to cut the personal updates and only touch on them when something important happens – my life is hardly that exciting, after all -, and stick to the weekly themes.

Today’s themes is TERFs. For those not in the know, that stands for Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminists. The tl;dr is: they defend that trans women are men. Must I say I have no love at all for them?

Instead of sharing my opinion, though (that might involve some expletives), I’d like to ask yours. Whether you agree with them or disagree, please keep your comment constructive and free of slurs. Thank you.

If you have an idea for a future theme (and I plan on expanding upon them much more than I did this one) feel free to share it in the comments! I’ll be happy to add it to my list!

See you on the next!

Life update – August 6th, 2021

Hello, my pretties! How are you all? Doing well, I hope! I’m still alive and kicking, even though I haven’t been posting nearly as much as I’d like. I had, as you know, planned on posting once a week, but then things got in the way, blah blah blah. You know. Same old stuff. I really need to stop making promises.

On the life side: finally got my first COVID shot this Monday. My arm was sore for even less time than the flu shot, and I had no reactions whatsoever. Took the Pfizer shot, and should take the second one in October – our vaccination schedule is a bit delayed, still. Nothing to do other than wait. Other than that… I guess that’s it. Despite having been busy and running around like a headless chicken, nothing really new and exciting has happened. Oh, wait. Yes, something did happen. Just last weekend, my dad decided to fix the water filter without closing the water register. Guess who took the brunt of the water jets when the pipe slipped off the wall and had to run to drag the fridge away to close the register while soaking wet and yelling at dad to put his hand over the wall? Yours truly, of course. My life sometimes resembles a comedy sketch. No animals were harmed during the production. Unless I count as an animal. Hmmm…

The theme today: Writer’s block. God knows I’ve looked into its face every day for a while already. With doing my work, learning stuff about the new work we’re going to start doing and helping everyone else from other departments do their work, plus spending time with family, plus just being tired… the well seems to be dry. I’ve been working on a story bit by bit by bit – almost sentence by sentence. It’s going to take a long time, but I feel that I can’t not write, otherwise the block may become permanent. If anyone has any tips to offer, I’d be extremely grateful! Any resources, links, anything you do to combat it… anything helps, really! Help a girl out! :)

I guess that’s it for today! I’ll try not to let too long go by before coming back here! Have a nice day and see you on the next post! If you have any suggestions for future themes, I’d love to hear them!

Random picture for the day – July 09, 2021

Hello, everyone! I should write a longer post at some point, but today was a long day and I’m dead tired, so I’ll just share a picture and a little bit of context. Today is a holiday for me, so the parents and I took a drive out of town for some fresh air and a change of scenery. We stopped at a town called Praia do Forte (Fort Beach), and I decided to snap a picture of the fishing boats. I hope you like it! I’ve been working on getting a blog in Portuguese off the ground (again), so if you notice I’ve been posting just a little less, that’s why! I’ll do my best to keep up with both blogs!

See you on the next!

Why I haven’t been posting much

Hello, my pretties! How are you all doing? Well, I hope! I also hope things aren’t too bad in your corner of the world and you’re staying safe!

As for me, I’m staying safe, if a bit stir-crazy from being home so much, especially now that there was an uptick in cases and we’re going on strict lockdown again.

But that’s not what I’m here for. I’m pretty sure everyone is sick of hearing about the pandemic already – no pun intended.

I’m here to basically talk about why I haven’t been posting as often as I used to.

It’s nothing new that I really don’t get along with the block editor. I have been trying, for real, but… I just don’t like it. It’s more time consuming than I’m willing to endure. Having to create each block, justify each block (I’m a bit of a neat freak this way) and all that jazz, instead of just writing whatever I have to say and moving on, ends up draining my patience and messing with my flow when I’m trying to write.

So, I’m tentatively writing on Blogger/Blogspot again, for a while. I know I’ll have to start again from scratch, but everything in life comes with a price tag.

We’ll see how this works out. I won’t delete this blog, though, and I’ll still be around and visiting everyone’s blogs!

See you around!

I swear I’m religious, y’all

Just a little light-hearted copy paste from a conversation I was having with friends on Discord. This is me, so I’m not taking anyone else’s comment, as that would be rude.

But I found it an interesting way to share what I believe, even if it’s not the most polite way to express one’s beliefs out there.

How do you express yours? Share them with me in the comments!

Stay safe and healthy! (And I still dislike block editor, but I’m trying)

Share your favorite blogs!

Hello, my pretties! I hope you are all doing well during these trying times!

I’m doing well enough, though I am still wondering whether or not I will continue blogging on WordPress after the changes to Block Editor were made. A part of me is inclined to say, not as often as I used to.

I have still been happy to read other blogs, though, so I though why not support other bloggers who are still active? Do you have any blog you really, really love? Share it with me! A little blurb about them would be nice as well!

Thank you in advance, and stay safe!

World Suicide Prevention Day

Hello, my pretties! Are you all doing well?

I sure hope you are!

Yes, I am still taking my break, but this is important, so I’ve decided to slip in for a post.

Tomorrow (or today, depending on where you are) is World Suicide Prevention Day, and that’s a theme I’m very passionate about, so I’ve decided to try and compile a post here with information for mine and other countries.

Would you kindly share the resources in your areas, or links to your blog posts where you have them posted? Thank you so much in advance!

I need a break…

Hello, my darlings! Are you all doing well and staying safe? I really hope you are doing as well as you can in these trying times.

I… am trying to do well. But I’m tired. Stressed. Trying to balance everything I need to do and still not drop the ball. I am dropping it, though. Including here on the blog.

Work, other projects and new (good) things happening on my personal life mean I have less and less time.

Add to that the new WordPress editor (I don’t like it, sorry) and I just don’t feel that passion anymore. Not for now, at least.

I’m not deleting the blog. I still want to be here, read and comment on other people’s work. I’m not sure whether or not I’ll carry on updating, though. Maybe this break is what I need to rest my mind and come back refreshed. We’ll see.

Until I make up my mind, I’ll leave you all in very good hands with all the blogs I follow. You can see them on the sidebar.

You all be good while I’m not here! See you on your blogs!
