Sorry to anyone who has been trying to access my website for the past week. My webhost (or I should say, FORMER webhost) killed my website Monday night. Their server died and they worked to get everything fixed, but for some reason, my website never worked again. I put in multiple support tickets, got multiple responses to change to multiple different nameservers, but it never worked.

So I’ve now moved my domain to a new host and will have to rebuild my site since I could never get into the ol...

The Well-Fed Writer by Peter Bowerman and Shucked by Megg Jensen


I have been eating way too much junk food lately and it’s making my teeth hurt, so I’m trying to be good by eating more fruit. So I’ve got tangerines and clementines, my favorite fruits for this time of year! (But I did still eat some chocolate I found in a cabinet…)


Chopping off my hair! By myself! I’m really lazy about getting haircuts because…I hat...
