note to self: i’ll be there for you, always

written june 6, 2021. Photo by Kristine Cinate on Unsplash I have always looked for myself in other people. I think the idea was that they would somehow hold the pieces of me that I felt were missing. That maybe, if I wrapped my identity up in theirs enough, we would somehow make a whole person. It's not healthy to live like this, but I did it anyway — burning through relationships and searching for something I couldn't quite name. It was never enough, not to be myself, but it was never enough to latch my identity to other people, either. I got close, several times — I thought I had reached the pinnacle of self discovery.

The Fangirl Initiative Is Having a Giveaway!

I feel awful that I haven't posted in so long. But if you want to know why, it's because I kind of have a special baby blog project.

You've heard about it before: The Fangirl Initiative. I started it in December and since then it's grown so much. Today was the relaunch: a new design, a new domain, and a giveaway.

I'm honestly so excited. I wanted to share with my readers because you've been an important part of this as well. (Thank you for putting up with my lack of posting.) Please enjoy this giveaway! You can enter to win a $15 gift card to either Barnes and Noble or Fandango, or your choice of 3 fandom pins.


p.s. not the hugest fan of April Fool's Day, but I got to talk to Spider-man and Thor from YAvengers on Twitter, so that's cool.


  1. I've never heard of the fangirl initiative before. I'll go and check that out! Gonna skip the giveaway though because me and my TBR are still having communication problems (it doesn't listen when I tell it to stop growing.) Thanks for sharing!

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.
