The Unpopular Opinion Book Tag

I have never felt more #understood, more #represented, more #recognized in my entire existence as an otherworldly being a normal human on this planet.

Okay, step 1: one of my favorite individuals in the mapped universe-slash-Internet tagged me to do this. It is my name twin. She is so kind and great and her tags are particularly fab. Go click that link and read her post right now. She’s the loveliest. You can go cleanse your weary soul after being on the hellscape that is my blog. (But why not like this post first, right?

June Wrap Up

So…I fell off the bandwagon for a few days there. My b, my b. It’s a holiday week n’ all. Busybusy. You know the drill. (Insert more excuses here.) Honestly, it was only a matter of time before posting consistently was no longer possible for me, due to my own self-destructive tendencies and no other reasons.
