I can’t fight this feeling anymore

June 2020 Writing isn’t creative for me anymore. I used to be able to sit down and conceptualize and research a topic and write about it passionately for hours. I could delve into politics and public affairs, or online shopping, or mental health struggles and go on and on and on. But now I’ve gotContinue reading “I can’t fight this feeling anymore”

Post-rebrand emotional revelations

“You care a lot about what people think. That’s a problem.”

She’s back and she’s got a therapist! (who is to be credited for the title of this post) I have officially lived two full weeks in California. And I still don’t know what to blog about. That’s not entirely true, actually. I have a lot that I want to write about but no idea whereContinue reading ““You care a lot about what people think. That’s a problem.””

You may not be wrong but you are probably mistaken

No blog in three weeks makes Jack a dull boy. (See what I did there?) But honestly y’all it has been a minute. I’m sure you’re thinking my hiatus was because of the usual cocktail of anxiety and depression but boy do I have great news for you. It wasn’t! I’ve been very busy andContinue reading “You may not be wrong but you are probably mistaken”
