You know, okay, before I even start this – I received an email about creating a strong “About” page from someone at WordPress whose title is “Happiness Engineer.” Seriously, like “The perfect job doesn’t exis…” “HAPPINESS ENGINEER.” Holy shit. I hope that job is every bit as fun as it sounds.
I’m not sure if this is about me, or about my blog. They’re pretty intertwined, so I guess both.
This is a place for me to dump all of my excess opinions, thoughts and maybe advice. The things I find funny, the things that upset me, the things that make me think. It’s pretty random, just like me. It’s kind of an extension of me, I guess. I’m not following any agenda, and I’m not sticking to a topic or category.
It might make things tricky. There are a number of topics that will crop up quite a bit, I can promise, because they are large parts of my life. While some might appreciate certain categories, they might not appreciate others. I’m not out to please everyone, so feel free to sift and take what you will out of it all, if you want to give me a chance.
Things that I will often be discussing, in point form:
- Chronic mental/physical illness
- Science (full disclosure: I am not remotely a scientist, I just appreciate science)
- Funny shit
In short, I am a wife, a mom of two teenaged boys, a Canadian. I live with fibromyalgia, bipolar disorder, post traumatic stress disorder and generalized anxiety. I have one son with autism. I am very pro-vaccine. I am very anti-misinformation. I love to laugh, and I have a random, strange, geeky and sometimes dark sense of humour. I swear. A lot. I have two cats and one tiny cat-sized dog. I love to bake and decorate cakes, love to cook, love to write, love to read. I work a full-time job and I am generally exhausted and fuelled by coffee and sugar. I love heavy music, horror movies/games, and unicorns and glitter. I’m pretty plain, but a little bit complex and contradictory. Above all, I strive to be genuine and honest, the good, the bad, the ugly, the gross, the embarrassing. I have very little shame. Consider yourselves warned.
If you read this shit long enough, you’ll get a handle on who I am. If you like who I am, hi new friend! If you don’t, I bid thee farewell sir/madam.
