Things I learned last year

A lil rambly blog about things I learned in my annus horribilis. (Well, maybe that’s a bit of a stretch. But it wasn’t the best year by any means.) That being said, looking at myself this time last year compared to now? I’m much happier. I learned a few truths between now and then: some stuff I wish I learned sooner. I’ll share a few with you.

People will ALWAYS tell on themselves.

  • As Maya Angelou once said: “When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time.” This is for better and for worse! People who are really your people will seek to show you that whenever they can. Love them with all your heart. They’re the real ones. Those who aren’t your people? They’ll show that, too. The mask always drops eventually.

If it’s actively harming you… you aren’t getting a medal for staying.

  • A few months ago, I left a job at somewhere that shall remain nameless. For a long time, it was everything I needed. Until … it wasn’t. I was surrounded by people who actively resented me, communication was basically zero, and between the gaslighting and the harassment, I was pretty much miserable. I stayed a lot longer than most people would have expected. Until one day, it dawned on me: what the hell did I think I was doing, exactly? Ruining my mental health for a thankless job, among people who wouldn’t give me the time of day even if they were actively looking at their watch. I’m thankful for the experience and always will be, but when it’s time to go it’s time to go. It might be hard to say goodbye when it’s something that was once important to you, but trust: you will be better off for it. Nothing, and I mean NOTHING, is worth your mental health and self respect.

I don’t drink enough water

  • There’s nothing profound about this one. Just a fact. I’m trying to be better, though.

Also, I’m actively looking for things that enrich and delight me! I’ve been loving looking at these websites with cute pixel artwork. It’s exactly what you think.

Also also… have a cat. You ever get jealous of the way cats can sleep so soundly? I do. Boy, do I ever.

Small update/layout change

Sorry for the lack of updates – I’ve been a bit pressed for time. Should be all good now, though!

I’ve changed to a new layout. I think this one will be up for awhile. I like it a lot.

I’ve also finished the Wayne Static and Static-X fanlistings, so please join if you are a fan!

A comeback!

Hello, hello! And welcome to the revamped! It’s been lingering in my mind a long time that I wanted to do more with this domain, as for months it’s only existed to host my Edsel Dope fansite. (An important job, to be fair.) But I’ve always intended to do more with it, since I sincerely love this domain.

Lately, I’ve started amassing enough sites to start a proper collective and portfolio. Now it’s time to bring out from the shadows. I’ve done a lot of work on this site, but there’s still so much more to come. I’m glad you’re here! Take a look around. I hope you enjoy your stay.
