Thoughts on TV shows, movies, a Netflix comedy, being childfree, sexuality and other life updates

I recently watched the live-action version of The Lion King and I’ll start with this: I’m happy that they didn’t take out the very beginning song that’s in the original version of this movie.

Assorted thoughts on being childfree, sexuality, relationships and more

In the Blind Bitching FB group, someone posted a comment saying that they haven’t posted anything in said group lately because they felt attacked. My response to that person’s comment reads:You were told by a couple of us that you are not, in fact, powerless to change your situation. That was it; your character wasn’t …

Thoughts on a Netflix show, a podcast, supporting people’s differences and advice I give to others

One of my favorite parts in the Netflix original show Anne with an E, is when Marilla and Anne are having an intense discussion with one another. What they’re talking about, is that they may have to give up Green Gables because they can no longer afford to maintain it. And one of the things …

My first-ever guest post on someone’s blog, assorted thoughts on living a childfree life, how I find comfort as an atheist and more

I recently wrote my first-ever guest post for someone’s blog. I wrote about how grief and trauma changes us. More specifically I wrote things that quite frankly should be said more regularly.

More podcast thoughts, a weird/disturbing dream, a heated discussion and some school/life updates

The last story on the eppisode of the This American Life podcast that discussed the hardships families go through during the holidays, was another interesting thing to me.
