Honesty is not always easy/assorted other topics

In two of my recent blog posts, I wrote about assorted music albums that have stood out to me in some way, shape or form. And I didn’t feel that it would fit in either of those blog posts for me to actually explain my process for writing those music reviews. So I’ll do so …

More thoughts on atheism, podcasts and enjoyable TV shows

In the Netflix original show The Baby-Sitters Club, one thing that’s stood out to me so far, is how Stacey, one of the baby-sitters in the BSC, is anxious about telling the other babysitters in the BSC that she’s diabetic. She’s created a story in her own mind where she’s convinced herself that her new …

Assorted thoughts on atheism, being childfree, podcast thoughts and self-expression

When I was a kid, one of the book series I loved to read was called The Baby-Sitters Club. There was even a TV show in the 90s of the same name. This TV show was based off of these same characters, though I honestly don’t remember much about the show itself. But that being …

Assorted TV show/podcast thoughts, and controversial thoughts on being childfree

When I was a little girl, my Oma and I enjoyed watching the show called Unsolved Mysteries with one another. Back then this show was hosted by a man named Robert Stack, though I didn’t actually know his name until I’d gotten much older. But sadly, by the time I was a teenager and Googled …

Should we or shouldn’t we? About equal access…or lack thereof

When it comes to equal access, blind people in particular, are usually an afterthought. So when I heard that Elizabeth Warren (who was running for President this year) actually came up with her campaign merchandise with blind people at the forefront of discussions about it, I was elated!! Even nowadays, I believe her campaign website …

Unexpected accessibility issues, multimedia thoughts and reflections

Something I don’t remember for sure if I’ve written about on my blog before, is that sometimes I have to play around with VoiceOver on my iPhone, to figure out an appropriate reading speed that allows me to both comprehend and maintain whatever it is that I’ve read. The thing that makes this particular thing …

Assorted accessibility frustrations, podcast thoughts and interesting news

I wrote the following thread on Twitter which reads:I just know that there are multiple someones out there who need to hear this: just cuz 45 is disregarding the CDC’s guidelines, that doesn’t mean that we’re out of the woods yet!! All it means is that hospitals have more room for folks now than they’ve …

Unpopular opinions on different subjects, other reflections and updates

On my personal FB page, I wrote the following status which reads:To society at large, please stop congratulating people on weight loss, most especially when you don’t know whether said weight loss was intentional, nor do you know the “why” behind folks’ weight loss. This is mainly on my mind right now because I’ve read …

Assorted podcast reflections, life updates and randomnesses

I recently edited my “About Me” page on my website. I happened to randomly hear VoiceOver tell me that a word was capitalized that should not have been capitalized, as the word was in the middle of a sentence. IDK how that even happened. But also, I changed the way some things in this mini …
