    Lyrical Host

    Hi, Hey, Hello! So I’m finally going to acknowledge that for the past month or so my little corner of the internet has been looking a little different. The reason for this? Someone went self hosted at the end of November. I’ve been thinking about it for a while, but for whatever reason have just never gotten around to it. Mostly because I still had so many months on my WordPress plan and wasn’t about to throw that small investment away. And then the stars seemed to align. I got an email letting me know that I had 30 days before a renewal was going to happen and I heard…

    2019 Goals

    Hi, Hey, Hello! I cannot believe that I am already setting up my 2019 goals. Where did last year even go? Last year’s goals are now mostly habits which I consider to be something of a good thing, it means I no longer have to worry about them in the way that I did last year. With the exception of one…(if you guessed I’m talking about meditation, then congrats you win). This year’s are kind of going to be more focused, it’s not that last year’s weren’t, it’s just that what focus means for me has changed over the past year, and also the focus feels a little different. So…

    2019 – Damn

    Hi, Hey, Hello! So, here we are in a new year. How the hell did that happen? 2018 seemed to fly by in a really terrifying fashion. This past week or so as we reached that fun period of time between Christmas and New Year where time makes no sense there have been a lot of reflective posts about the year just gone. And so here is mine: 1) I gained weight and didn’t totally hate myself for it. I’ve gained nearly 7kg, most of it’s gone to my legs which I’m not mad at and I’m still going with it at a snail’s pace because my metabolism is no…

    Bonus Book Review – Becoming

    Hi, Hey, Hello! I miss the Obamas. That’s it, that’s the review…I’m kidding obviously. I’ve never pre-ordered a book so fast in my life (I feel like I say this about a lot of books) because I’ve devoured so many of Michelle Obama’s speeches, I couldn’t see how her writing wouldn’t be similarly compelling and astounding. And I was correct. This book was amazing. I may be coming at this with a slight bias because I just love the Obamas, but also, it’s the best selling book of the year and has Oprah championing it, so maybe not. I love the way it was sectioned up and how they all…

    Bonus Book Review – Runaways 2

    Hi, Hey, Hello! You know I low key forgot that the second volume of this was due out this yer. I mean I pre-ordered it, but as is the way with most of the things I pre-order, I did that and then promptly forgot all about it. So colour me surprised when I got that dispatch email (I really need to keep better track of this shit). This volume was also really handily very short, which is just what I needed as my reading challenge started to come to a close. It took a couple of hours to get read. Thank you very much. And it was an enjoyable read.…
