Hysterectomy at 25: My Endometriosis Story

An article from The Cut graced my Google news feed a couple of days ago, and I thought I was going to puke. The article is titled, “An Actual Study Asked: Are Women with Endometriosis Hotter?” Yes, it’s as awful as it sounds. There was in fact a study conducted in 2013 that aimed to […]

Our Big Downsize: How My TBI Pushed Me to Change My Life

Our journey to minimalism started with a crash. I was in a serious, motor scooter accident in October of 2015. I wish I could tell you what exactly happened, but I have no recollection of the actual accident, only waking up on the pavement and blurs of the emergency room. I was wearing a helmet, […]

Calm App: A Review

I will preface this review by stating that I struggle something fierce with meditation. The Setup I downloaded the Calm App, and purchased the annual subscription (US$69.99), in August of 2019, so I’ve had it for almost a year. I say that I’ve had it for a year, not that I’ve used it for a […]

Composting 101

I am overtly in love with composting. It’s a recent love affair, but I don’t think that makes it any less significant. Composting Class I have been wanting to start composting for a very long time, but I never quite knew what the most practical setup would be, and then when we downsized five years […]

Bralternatives (Bra Alternatives): Bikini Tops

As most of you know from the title of this blog and my post, Bras Are Boob Prisons: Why I Stopped Wearing Bras, and Why I’ll Never Go Back, I have strong feelings about not wearing bras and just letting the nip free. Now, with that being said, there are times that I feel like, […]

Zoomed In: My Macro Obsession

I love to pretend that I’m an actual photographer. I say pretend, because in reality, the only things I know about the act of photography are from YouTube tutorials. I use a 55mm Nikon D3400 DSLR that’s about 3 years old and was on sale at Costco for around $700, and I have a small […]

“Micro” May Mean “Small,” But Microaggressions Have A Large Impact

Let’s talk microagressions. What Is A Microaggression? A recent article on NPR defined microagression as, “veiled, everyday instances of racism, homophobia, sexism (and more) that you see in the world. Sometimes it’s an insult, other times it’s an errant comment or gesture.” (This article is very informative, and I highly recommend that you give it […]

My Minimalist”ish” Closet

In my post about looking for sustainably sourced clothes, I promised that I would show you all my closet at some point. Well, here it is. It’s not a looker, but it gets the job done. Our house has an odd setup, and my husband has considerably more clothes than me, so his closet is […]

Minimalist Book Journey: Will I Ever Go Back to Paperback?

I’ve just finished reading my first paperback book in a very long time, and it was WONDERFUL! I’m an avid reader, and one of the things that I downsized during my minimalist journey was my extensive book collection. Like any good nerd, I amassed a collection of books that were some of my prized possessions, […]

Learning to Focus on Process instead of Production

Our self-worth tends to get tangled up in what we can produce. Like a lot of people, I constantly feel like I need to produce something. I need to have some indication that I have used my time “wisely” by having a product to show for it. Whether that “product” is a piece of art, […]
