I’ve been fairly active on stories but haven’t had the motivation or inspiration to post on my actual feed. ⁣ ⁣ My emotions have been all over the place. ⁣ Some moments I’m super anxious. ⁣ ⁣ Some moments I’m super calm [i equate this to living with anxiety full time] ⁣ ⁣ Some moments I’m laughing out of the sheer ridiculousness of it all. ⁣ ⁣ Some days I just want to lie in bed all day doing nothing. ⁣ ⁣ On the flip side. ⁣ ⁣ This has forced me to slow down and I don’t hate that. We’ve been going on daily walks (and even walking to the store to get our essentials). I’ve been cooking more. Reading more. ⁣ ⁣ This has allowed me to re-examine my business as my income has practically stopped. So while I can’t help that, at least I can take the time to focus on the things I want to. ⁣ ⁣ But, regardless, I wanted to check in and let you know that no matter what you’re doing or not doing, no matter how you’re feeling, whether you’re being productive or not...⁣ ⁣ You are enough. ⁣ ⁣ 🖤🖤🖤 ⁣ ⁣ #wildhearted #quarantine #quarantinelife #staythefuckhome #stayhome #stayathome #covıd19 #covid_19 #covid #corona #coronavirusoutbreak⚠️ #youareenough #mentalhealth #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthadvocate #anxiety #depression #staythefuckathome #staythefhome #anxietysupport #youarenotalone ⁣

What I Read in May 2020

My Goodreads challenge reading goal is 100 books this year. And behind or not, I’ve already read 32 books this year which is pretty damn good if you ask me. While the book is clearly about the entire family, they still do Jeremy justice in the book. Reading a title like this makes you think a book is heading a very specific direction, but this book was really about so much more than what’s on the surface.

I know everyone’s stuck indoors. While I despise the overall situation, I’m trying to make the most of it. ⁣ ⁣ While I’m not entirely new to the whole being at home a lot thing, I know a lot of people are. So, if you’re finding yourself bored, I’ve put together a few posts on the blog...⁣ ⁣ 🖤 27 witchy tv shows to watch ⁣ 🖤 21+ horror shows and movies on Netflix ⁣ 🖤 the best horror movies and shows on Hulu ⁣ 🖤 weird and entertaining Facebook groups to waste time in. ⁣ ⁣ Also, I’ve signed up for @shudder and am loving it but given it’s ALL horror, not really sure how to do a post on it?!

The Cannibals of Chaufant by EE Tressler

Through tragedy and a philosophic odyssey Tom, his new friend Andy, and the community of Chaufant, find peace before the summer ends. The Cannibals of Chaufant by EE Tressler focuses on Tom Cooper, a sociology professor from Colorado, in the midst of a midlife crisis. Andy Caldwell especially takes to Tom as they go fly-fishing, survey land as part of Andy’s job, and make conversation on every trivial and serious topic under the sun. This part mystery, part adventure, part romance includes well-developed characters, a lovable narrator, and a truly wild summer odyssey complete with cannibals, Native Americans, hidden treasure, polygamists, and a dude ranch.

A quick check in to see how YOU are doing?!⁣ ⁣ I won’t lie - I’m an introvert who works from home 80% of the time so while I desperately miss traveling, I was kind of a homebody anyway. That being said - I still like having a choice 😅⁣ ⁣ One of the things I DO miss is just having a chat with friends over a cup of coffee. ⁣ Zoom calls and my mediocre barista skills just don’t compete with these @goldsprinthsv creations. ⁣ ⁣ #wildhearted #quarantine #quarantinelife #quarantineandchill #stayhome #stayathome #coffeetime #coffeelover #coffeeaddict #coffeedate #meetups #coffeemeeting #huntsvillealabama #huntsville #ilovehuntsville #hsv #goldsprinthsv #staygold #zoommeeting #virtualcoffee #virtualcoffeedate

Top 5 Reasons Why Books Are Important

Books can also stimulate our minds to think about problems we could have and how to fix them. They provide important themes that make us think about how those themes apply to our lives. Novels stimulate us so much that they can even help reduce our chances of getting Alzheimer’s. Lastly, books can help stimulate our minds so that not only our memory is better, but we can read faster too.

How are you going to be vocal about looting and not about murder. ⁣ ⁣ How can you be outraged by inanimate objects but not about someone being murdered. ⁣ ⁣ How can you be upset about a black man kneeling peacefully but not a white man kneeling on a black mans neck until he can no longer breathe all while being so unthreatened that his hands are nonchalantly in his pockets while a man is begging for his life. ⁣ ⁣ In case you don’t realize, these are not actual questions. This is not open for discussion. If this post made you feel threatened or angry or defensive, you’re part of the problem and I’m only here for discussion if you actually want to educate and change. ⁣ ⁣ #georgefloyd #justiceforgeorgefloyd #blm #blacklivesmatter #ripgeorgefloyd #blacklivesmatter✊🏾 #racismisreal #racism #silenceisviolence #silencekills #seesomethingsaysomething #minneapolis #minnesota #whiteprivilege #whitesupremacy #whitesupremacyisterrorism

The Checklist Book by Alexandra Franzen

She’s been mentioned/quoted in The New York Times Small Business Blog, The Atlantic, USA Today, BuzzFeed, Brit+Co, and Inc. Alexandra is best-known for writing about creativity, productivity, the power of setting tiny goals, how to develop more confidence in your writing skills, and how to stay motivated, keep working towards your personal and professional dreams, and never give up. Seriously, I love making lists, I love checking things off lists, I sometimes add things to my list I feel like a broken record, but I was just diagnosed with ADHD at 33 (you can read my article about this for Wellness Lounge Magazine) and it felt like I had the most enlightening experience ever. Since being on meds and getting help, I’m finally checking things off my checklist (and ultimately it’s what led me to be able to start this site –

I found that it’s National Bat Week so what better time to share one of the coolest (and weirdest) experiences I’ve had. While in Austin, I headed to the Congress Street Bridge at sunset to watch over 2 million bats emerge for feeding and other bat things. ⁣ 🦇 ⁣ I thought this would be cool but it really did blow my mind and it was incredibly hard to capture the feeling and experience so you’ll have to take this crappy video and trust me. ⁣ 🦇 ⁣ Do you think bats are cool or creepy?⁣ 🦇 ⁣ #odditiesandcuriositiestravel #nationalbatweek #weirdtravel #keepaustinweird #austintexas #atxlifestyle #trueaustin #exploreaustin #texasforever #austintx #igaustin #igaustintexas #downtownaustin #bat #dontmesswithtexas #lonestarstate #bats #odd #curious #365thingsaustin #congressbridgebats #igtexas #visittexas #oddandcurious #strangetravel #batsofinstagram #bats
