Hi, everyone! I just wanted to post a quick update to let you all know that I have an Etsy shop now! This is sort of a test run of selling my Perler creations on Etsy, so I only have three items listed for sale. If everything goes well and I enjoy doing this, I'll … Continue reading Update: I have an Etsy shop!
Hello, everyone! This week, I decided to try something a little different. Instead of providing you with a specific writing prompt, I've decided to let you choose from this list of art therapy exercises! There are 100 art therapy exercises on the list (and you can find tons more through a simple Google search), and … Continue reading Project Prompt: Art Therapy
I'm not sure how learning to code is helping me, but I do know that it is helping, and that's what's important to me right now.
Hello, everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful week and are enjoying the weekend! This week, I had a little trouble coming up with a prompt (mostly due to the fact that I've been preoccupied with learning how to code—guilty!), so I asked my boyfriend for help, and I'm really happy with what he … Continue reading Writing Prompt: Monsters, Mental Illness, and Defense
As I've been tracking my mental health for the past few months, I've noticed something, and I've had a bit of a change of heart. I'll still continue tracking my mental health, but I might be making a few changes that I'll address in a bit.

I thought I'd apply this to this week's … Continue reading Writing Prompt:

Earlier this week, a friend asked me for a children's book recommendation because he thought that having a simple, easy-to-read book would be beneficial to his friend during depressive or anxious episodes.
