I really love end-of-year content. Tell me about the things you tried, the things you learned, and the things you're glad you didn't do. I want all of the 2021 roundups. This year has been one of self-improvement and discovery for me. I joined a coworking/networking group of primarily women, so I have a ton... Continue Reading →
Where the hell have I been?
That's an excellent question. Clearly I’m still alive, and I wanted to catch up. How’s it going? Are you making it through the hurricane/wildfire/locust plague/global pandemic? I hope so. I find myself getting extremely overwhelmed when I think about everything that’s going on, and I know I’m not alone there. Anyone else on a news... Continue Reading →
Another New Year, still same Teresa
Oh, hi. It's been awhile since we chatted, so let's catch up on some stuff. I started school, joined a coworking/networking space to maybe make some friends (virtual for now, but someday in real life), bought a new car, I'm job hunting, making more of an effort to plan things (like projects and study time),...

It’s been a sad week
Hello again internet friends. I'm coming to you today with lots of complicated feelings. Sadness, rage, disgust, hopelessness, to name just a few. But I don't want to talk about that because it's not actually about me. It's about people who can't walk down the street or go to the store without being seen as... Continue Reading →
So about this pandemic
Hi! I hope you're all safe and healthy. I'm not handling things all that well, to be honest. Remember when this whole thing started and I was totally cavalier about it? I was all like, "It's fine, use the time to learn a language, make coffee, remember to take showers"? Well, I was wrong. So.... Continue Reading →
How are you doing?
We're on what feels like day 3,421 of self-quarantine. I haven't left the house in 18 days, which is a new personal record. Before this I was making an effort to leave the house a couple times a week, and now I really miss those trips. I wasn't doing anything exciting, just sitting in coffee... Continue Reading →
Advice for getting through a quarantine from an actual hermit
Ok, I'm not really a hermit, but damn close. I’ve been working remotely for almost five years, and since moving across my home state about 18 months ago I’ve had no social life to speak of because I have no friends. Seriously, the only people I talk to on a regular basis are my boyfriend... Continue Reading →
2020 Beauty Goals
In looking back at my goals post I realized that I didn't touch on any of my beauty goals for this year. I actually made some this year. I think that alone is worth mentioning. I'm not generally a goal-setter of any kind and just roll with the punches, but here we are in a... Continue Reading →
Do you like to be scared?
You all know that I'm into creepy things. I love skulls and horror and 90% of my podcast playlists are either true crime or paranormal. I like being scared. It's just my thing. My other thing is writing, and as much as I told myself that this is my blog and I can put whatever... Continue Reading →
Goals for 2020
I've mentioned before that I'm not really into resolutions, but I'm setting a few goals for myself for the coming year. They're pretty straightforward. Blog more This is obvious and self-explanatory. I like blogging. It makes me happy. I should make it more of a priority. Go new places Since moving to Albany I've become... Continue Reading →
Hey… remember me?
Oh hi. I've been gone for awhile. After my uncle died I went into a bit of a funk. And by funk I mean full-fledged depression. It wasn't all related to his death; I found a new doctor in Albany and we've been messing with my meds a bit, plus the change in weather, the... Continue Reading →
I’m alive, just sad
Hello friends. We're more than halfway through the month, and while I planned to post lots of good spooky things, I just haven't been in the right mindset to write. Or really do much of anything other than work. My great uncle died at the beginning of the month. It was sudden and unexpected, and... Continue Reading →
But I've been flat on my ass for almost two weeks. Labor Day weekend I went home to Rochester to spend time with family and go to my "cousin's" wedding. The scare quotes are because she's not actually my cousin, but I've known her since she was born and we all grew up together, so... Continue Reading →
How you doin’?
Hello internet friends! I'm fried. Between work and other life nonsense, I'm feeling pretty burned out. It's actually mostly because of work. I've been unhappy in my job for a while, and the powers that be have implemented some changes to mitigate our misery, but ultimately, I work in customer support. Support reps everywhere are...

Change of plans
I intended to post a review of the new Maybelline foundation tonight. I even have wear test photos. I was so excited that I was getting it together for this month. Then I looked at the clock. Work ran later than I planned, and I have a four-hour journey into the wilderness tomorrow, and many... Continue Reading →
