Flying the Coop

Another chapter, a new adventure…

  • Dancing babies.

    Dancing babies.

    This video appeared as an ad before a video I watched the other day. April 3, 2019 Update:The original video that I shared has been taken down, so I’ve replaced it with a video of equal beauty. It’s amazing. Simply amazing. Everyone needs to see this video, which is why I’m sharing it here! You’re […]

  • Already?!


    We’re already halfway through the month. Yeah. For realsies. I, for one, am really frustrated by that fact because I’m trying to do more. I’m really trying to get back on track and it feels like my body just won’t cooperate. I’m sleeping a lot but having troubles falling asleep, my stomach doesn’t want food […]

  • I have a plan!

    I have a plan!

    Actually, no I don’t! And that’s okie dokie. Or is it? I’ve often wondered if I should have a plan for my life. Looking at other kids as I fumbled through my teen years, I wondered how they could have such direction for where they were headed. When asked, “what are you gonna do when […]

  • Hey.

    Sup? Whatcha doin’? Me? Oh, I’m just waiting for a grilled cheese sandwich to fall from the sky into my lap. Just my regular Sunday thing. I don’t actually expect that to happen, but you never know. We live in a crazy world and anything—literally anything—is possible. If a grilled cheese is gonna fall from […]

  • Learning languages.

    I’m quite intrigued by language. It’s something that’s always mystified me in a way. I know several languages, mostly computer based ones, but still. Language helps to define our perception of the world and learning other languages can help you to see new perspectives… view the world differently. Plus you can communicate with more people […]

  • I’m just gonna write a paragraph.

    A pair of giraffe? No, no… a paragraph. Oh! A pear gaffe, got it. Para-graph! Parrot glass? Okay, now you’re just trying too hard. Hah, whatevskis. I’ve decided to write a single paragraph about…something. I haven’t decided the subject yet. I’m thinking maybe a little blurb about my day, like an update kinda thing, yanno? […]

  • Cheese melt.

    Food. It’s a wonderful thing. And over the past week I’ve been working to eat better and I’m totally obsessed with tomato cheese melts. You start with bread, add some sliced tomato, a dash of pepper, then a layer of cheese. Pop that into the oven for a few minutes and presto!! A yummy snack! […]

  • I can’t write.

    I mean, I can write. Right? But I can’t write. You know what I’m saying? That is all. Carry on! M3

  • 💩

    I’ve been seriously considering not publishing a post today. But I must maintain this streak; the world depends on it! Or something like that. Really though, I’m just trying to do a thing. I’m not good at it, but I’m trying. Even if each post is poorly composed and lacks substance, I’m doing it. Nobody […]

  • A new friend!

    I met up with a person for lunch and I didn’t die. Exciting, right? We got along really well and lost track of time talking and walking around downtown. A fun day with a new friend! Gonna go to sleepies now. 🙂 M3

  • Nope.

    Not doing this tonight. I just… I just can’t write a blog post tonight. Today was a super busy day and I didn’t even get everything done. Rar. Such… frustrate. Keep it chill!! Or don’t. I’m not your mom. M3

  • Sleep is weird.

    I’m doing a lot of sleeping these days. At the same time, I’m struggling to get enough sleep. Yanno? That doesn’t seem to make sense, but it’s where I’m at. I’ll lie in bed for hours waiting to be taken away to dreamland on the sleepy time express, but the train just sits in the […]

  • Mad Libs!

    Okie dokie… here are two mad libs I completed for the fun of it. Love Letter The Words Person in room: Cassandra Adjective: wise Verb: jump Body part: foot Number: 23 Noun: box Adverb: temporarily Verb: woo Plural pronoun: sporks Other person in room: Derrick The Letter Dear Cassandra, You are extremely wise and I […]

  • Four ways to help a struggling friend.

    It’s frustrating dealing with mental health issues including depression and whatnot. Not many people understand it and fewer people know what to do about it. People want to help, but their either too far away or don’t know what to do. There’s a lot that can be done for those struggling with mental health. I […]

  • I finally pulled out my paints.

    I finally pulled out my paints.

    I’ve been meaning to pull out my painting stuff all month. Tonight I finally did it! I cued up Bob Ross on Netflix and got messy. Oh, hey! I just realized that they didn’t say, “take chances, make mistakes, get messy,” in the new Magic School Bus series. That’s one of my most favourite quotes […]

  • *insert title here*

    I’m trying to write a blog post tonight, but I can’t figure out what to actually say. What I intended to write was an apology to everyone I’ve been ignoring the past few days. But that just seems like weird and like I’m just asking for attention in a twisted way. *ignores online friends* “Sorry, […]

  • Torn.

    Do you ever feel pulled in two directions at the same time? That’s kinda what I’m feeling right now. Except… * big sigh* it’s multiple directions and on every level of my being. I really, really don’t want to write a blog post. But I also really don’t want to miss a day. So yes, […]

  • Feeling both good and bad.

    The past couple days have been weird in that I’ve been feeling somewhat down and stuff, which isn’t totally new. But I’m also feeling pretty good. Mentally and emotionally speaking, here of course. Other than that, my stomach is feeling pretty good. 🙂 Anyway, that’s it for today. M3

  • You’re only given a little spark of madness.

    You’re only given a little spark of madness.

    We had an open mic night at my coffee house for poetry and musical performances. Someone read a poem about Robin Williams and now I’m missing him again. Everyone misses him, though. I thought what he said about being crazy… he said, “You’ve got to be crazy! It’s too late to be sane. […] Because […]
