Occasional Link Roundup

Alright, I’ve been sick AND doing 5,000 7 grad school apps, so some of these links are actually from 2012. Ugh, embarrassing. Before I get started, a couple things: 1. Promote your own stuff in the comments! Seriously, I want to see what you all write. (Update: but not the way the first commenter did!) …

This week I learned that depression and writer’s block together is a scary thing, as writing is my primary way of alleviating depression. Then I realized that the reason I couldn’t write was because I was refusing to write the piece that was trying to come out. When I finally let myself “feel the feels,” …

Update on Social Justice Resources!

Hey, did you know I had a huge list of social justice resources that I frequently update? Probably not, because I can’t get the tab to show up at the top of the page. But in any case, now you know. It’s pretty easy to use (in my humble opinion). Everything’s categorized and resources that …

Update! Social Justice Resources

Because apparently I am not busy/obsessive enough already, I’ve decided to develop a massive document of resources about social justice and other political/personal issues that concern me (mental health, communication, sex, etc.). It will include links to blogs, websites, books, and individual articles that I’ve found interesting and useful, as well as the sorts of …

Apologies for the lack of posts.

I’m on vacation in Israel and fully expected to be able to use my laptop and write, except that I neglected to buy the proper power outlet converter thingie. Now I’m desperately trying to find one here and cannot, and it’s driving me up the wall. Advice would be appreciated. Hopefully I’ll be back soon …

This blog will now have short posts too!

After much deliberation, I’ve decided to start writing more short posts on this blog. By short I mean, several hundred words as opposed to my usual 1000-plus-word ones. The reason for this is twofold: to make it easier for me to write more often, since I don’t always have time and energy for those huge …

A Reflection on Three Years of Blogging

Three years ago today, I inaugurated this blog with its first post. At one point in it, I explained that I’d moved to WordPress.com and started a new blog because of issues with my previous host, and I wrote this: I thought about buying my own domain and not messing around with that stuff anymore, …
