Feminism and Flowers: My Bitter Take on Valentine’s Day!

Just… yes.

Abstractions of Life

And now school has started and I work and I’m busy. So I’m gonna try to set up a pseudo-regular schedule for bloggifying my life and thoughts and junk, but again with the inability to commit myself to anything I set out to do, so we’ll see. I’ll try. Maybe… Sundays? Mondays? Saturdays? Fridays? I’m not sure. I’ll try to keep anyone who may or may not be following this posted.

Stay classy, my friends.
