There are a lot of things that can make a show good. One Punch Man was elevated to new heights by Studio Madhouse’s fantastic job animating it. One Piece’s worldbuilding makes you believe there’s truly a pirate-infested ocean out there. Konosuba wouldn’t be half as good without it’s amazing comedic timing. But as a writer, … Continue reading Kaoru’s Anxiety
I wanted to write a short post today. Part of what I was originally going to talk about was already mentioned in last week’s post, which you can find here if you missed it. As the title suggests, I think it’s very important to have attainable goals. I have a long history of setting goals … Continue reading The importance of attainable goals
I make no secret of my poor mental health. Earlier this year I was dealing with some tough health issues which seemingly appeared as a direct result of the amount of stress I was under. I am doing generally better now. Not because I solved all of my problems, but moreso because a lot of … Continue reading The tricky thing about motivation
I know what you’re thinking, the coronavirus is still there, and we’re not quite there yet, and you’re totally right. But after almost 18 months of worry, pessimism and anxiety, I think it’s good to start looking forward again with optimism. As of posting this, I’ve had both shots, and in a week from now … Continue reading Looking back on Covid

Nothing major, but I’ve had some health issues (currently diagnosed with Tietze syndrome, which means chest pains that eventually go away, but kind of … Continue reading I took a walk today

As a fan of anime and many other parts of the Japanese culture, I would love to go to Japan on vacation some time. The … Continue reading Follow your dreams.
Unfortunately I couldn’t get Kaylirr’s Yin and Yang to a place where I was happy enough with it to post it. Instead have this post about why my mental health is spaghetti. I don’t know about you guys, but I had almost convinced myself that 2021 was going to be a better year than 2020 … Continue reading Mental health in 2021
2020 was a tough year, and with the way 2021 is shaping up to be, it’s not going to be a big improvement any time soon. Of course, the recently started vaccination is a good step in the right direction, and there is some light at the end of the tunnel, but in the more … Continue reading Now we’re stressed out
And it was an amazing experience! So far my blog-type posts on this website have been more about general issues I’ve been wrestling with, and less about a single activity. This time however, I want to talk about something I did about a week ago, as of writing this. I currently intern at a secondary … Continue reading I taught a social skills lesson
One of the perks of high-functioning autism is that I’m generally decent at hiding my issues. I often get people who are surprised when I tell them about my autism.
