I'm done with my third round of chemo! Only one more to go. Have I blogged about chemo yet? I can't remember. Yes, if you haven't heard of it, there is a thing called "Chemobrain." It means your brain is just kinda fried. Literally. Chemo's also frying my tongue, gums, mouth walls, teeth, eyes, hair,… Continue reading A Very Self-Indulgent Post
My time with the Scrabble app is coming to a close. It was fun while it lasted, but honestly, I just can't keep up!

Hey all! It's Thursday! My second-favorite day of the week. Why? Because so many good podcasts come out on Thursdays. My favorite at the moment is called Haunted Places.

Finally, the excuse I've been waiting for, to indulge my anxiety and depression, eat however much I want of whatever I want, and receive pity and presents from my favorite people. Dream come true. Haha, just kidding. Except for the cancer part. I do have cancer. Just found out today for sure. I've personally known… Continue reading I Have Cancer
I think more than five people read my blog now! So, hi you six! This blog post doesn't have a subject yet. I'm hoping one will come to me as I write.
