on the power of showing up

note: I wrote this post in April of 2019 (pre-COVID). It's been sitting in my drafts for quite a while, but I think it's time for it to see the light of day. It's been helpful for me to reread over the past few months, especially as I continue to try to make an effort to write, and I hope it can be helpful to you, too. i got an invite to a writers' group a few months ago, and i had never felt like more of a fraud in my life. it had been months, if not years, since i'd felt like a writer. the proverbial well of words in my heart had dried up, it seemed, and i wasn't sure if it was ever coming back. i agreed to go out of a sense of helplessness—i'd identified as a writer ever since i could remember. if i'm not a writer, who am i?  i told myself that it was important to show up and act like a writer even when i didn't feel like one, because even though i hadn't been writing, i reassured myself, i still was a writer. but sometimes the words f

A Recipe {Day 25}

Okay, so I'm not really that great in the kitchen. Mom would like to change that fact, but for now... I don't cook.

However, here's a recipe to have a day just like mine!

Here's what you'll need:

1 Polyvore account
1 Lazy Saturday afternoon
1 Dinner at Chipotle
1 Imagination
1 Blog

First step: Mix your Saturday afternoon, Polyvore account, and imagination together, which will create a set. Or two. Or five. In the end, it should look something like this:

Violet Eyes

[^ this is probably one of my favorite sets. Ever. Even though I didn't make it today. Shh! Don't tell anyone!]

Step two: Once you have achieved the desired effect, go get a Chipotle dinner, sit down, and enjoy yourself.

Step three: After eating, go to your blog and post about it. I want to hear your recipes too! :)


  1. Cool! That sounds like a recipe that I could make :)

  2. Ah! Sounds like a fun recipe! Especially the Chipotle part! I was thinking today that I would really like to go to Chipotle with you again. <3

  3. Best. Recipe. Ever. ;) I have to admit that I've never eaten at Chipotle before. Lame. I know. ;) I will eat there one day...

  4. Ah-ha! Sounds like an amazing recipe, I will have to try this!! =D xo.

  5. Lovely recipe! ;)

    (by the way, what is Chipotle?! I've never heard of it....)

  6. I *fricken* love polyvore. But I'm not that good... YET. :P
    But I'm learning, bet one day I'll be as good as you!

    You bough BOTH CD's?!?! I'm sooo jealous. I have a copy of ocean eyes but I'd love to have the whole thing.

    I also had a copy of the Birds and the bEes sides... on my MP3. Before it crashed. Now I don't. :P

    Oh well... lucky you! I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

    Jefferson Aeroplane (though i'm not sure how they spell the latter word on the CD, that's how I spell it) is one of my favorite along with a couple others that are more serious and make me cry. *sigh* I miss that CD! Tell me what you think. :)

    By the way... your new template design is lovely! I like it.

Comments make the world go 'round... or was that chocolate?

Thank you for stopping by! I read every single comment and love them all. Seriously, it makes my day. I do my best to comment back!

My only rule is basic respect and honor. Disagreement is accepted, but hate and trolling is not. Otherwise, say what you need to say, and have fun. And don't forget to grab a free complimentary mint on your way out.
