All That I Missed

My dear blog, oh how I miss writing you. Recently, I’ve been too exhausted to be personally productive. This means I am not working on myself. Household chores are neglected, self-care isn’t touched, and exercising becomes a distant memory. I told my therapist how I haven’t been meditating or practicing any mindfulness. But, I wasn’t …

Cherry: Movie Review and Analysis

It unknowingly missed the point. As a fan of Nico Walker’s book, Cherry, I was thrilled to hear the Russo Brothers were directing the movie adaption.

This can cause bad days. However, other factors do contribute …

A Suicidal Thought

National Suicide Prevention Week Reflection. I will not pretend that I am an expert on mental health. Also, I will not simply show symbolic support for suicide prevention.
