• Finally, a Review! Well, a Review, of Sorts…

    It’s a live review of my own story planning and book writing! Coming up a plausible storyline for a novel has been my life goal ever since I can remember. And I’m more determined now than ever to finally make it work, even if it’s just to cross it off my goals list. But, honestly, […]

  • Recharging During Stormy Weather

    I didn’t start actively enjoying thunderstorms until I was in middle school. Before then, I had been afraid of thunder, but my Mom helped me to appreciate the weather for the scientific explosion that it is. Ever since discovering that appreciation I’ve always been calmed by stormy weather. Depending on the day, storms, or rainy […]

  • On Feeling Disconnected from Community

    Recently I was afforded the chance to leave town and disconnect for a few days. The trip had been planned for months so my Dad and I left with the dogs, even though it was the day that SCOTUS overturned Roe V Wade. I wanted to remain nearer the city in order to attend protests […]

  • Trying to Remain as Positive as I Have Always Been

    For my whole life I’ve always been a “glass half full” kind of person. I think my loving upbringing plays a factor into that, but I’ve always been inquisitive and empathetic, as well. One time in my life when I was at one of my lowest points was at the end of a toxic relationship. […]

  • Reflections on ‘Inside’ by Bo Burnham

    You know who’s been resonating with me a lot recently? Bo Burnham. I was pulled into ‘Inside’ when it was released, instantly connecting with it. The pandemic really did a number on the ol’ noggin, and besides, I’ve always struggled with anxiety/bouts of depression. I remember being incredibly inspired by the music and the feelings […]

  • My Relationship with Writing

    As I mentioned in a previous post, writing is always something I’ve turned to when I haven’t been feeling like myself. And there have been huge chunks of my life where I didn’t even make journal entries, let alone write creatively or anything like that. And on New Year’s Eve this year I made a […]

  • Coming to Terms with Realizing I Need to Step Out of My Own Way

    Why do I forego writing when I know how much pleasure and relief it brings me? It could be a multitude of things, but mainly it’s myself. Not because I have any doubts about my talent! I’ve always been extremely comfortable and confident in my various works. Take my fic writing, for example, I rarely […]

  • Feeling Aimless in 2022

    All my life I’ve been a writer. Or, I’ve been writing. Growing up, I would scribble squiggly lines on paper as soon as I could hold a pen while making up stories in my head. That shifted into me making up stories throughout my life. Nowadays I’ve been trying to find my writing groove, again, […]

Hey, there, I’m Carolyn! Thank you so much for being here 💕 I’m twenty-nine years old, and I’m a nonbinary bisexual individual from Wisconsin 🤙 My world and my heart are split in two because my sister, brother-in-law and nephew all live in Germany. It makes for an exciting life, but also it can be pretty damn painful at times. Life has been, on the whole, good to me, minus a few crappy boyfriends, and I’ve been spending life happily single lately. But, that can be lonely, too. Y’know, I just don’t think a relationship is what I need right now. I need to figure my stuff out. But, you never know what opportunities may pop up! Hopefully there’ll be another partner out there for me someday. I’m currently experiencing massive change, where I have to reshape my career path and even decide if I should try to move to Germany. And in the meantime, I have to find a new car to buy. It’s a lot! So, I’m here to let it all out and voice all of the thoughts swimming around in my noggin. I couldn’t be more excited for this journey into writing! Time to flex my fingies and my brain! Git ready for some stream of conscience nonsense! 👽
