How much stock do you put in the about page? Do you change it often? Or has it not been touched since the day you wrote it? To be honest, the about page of my blog has intermittently stressed and annoyed me since I first started writing here back in 2015. When I began writing … Continue reading About the about page
I watched a video with Dan Rather and Richard Edelmen this week (well, I watched a little bit, but mostly was listening to it like a podcast - it's a bit lengthy). Jeremy Skule hosted the two for a discussion on the current trustworthiness of media. Basically, it is at an all time low. There … Continue reading The Whats and Whys of an RT Blog
I made this to get an idea of who's engaged online in our field. I want to know who's speaking up, who's getting what done - the kind of people I want to connect with, and who know what's going on in our field. Not all of the blogs below are exclusively dedicated to RT … Continue reading Who’s Blogging in Recreation Therapy?
In the last installment of this series, I started the post in a similar identical fashion, down to the header 2 lead-in. You should go take a look; reading it, I want to pat 01/02/16 me on the head like a knowing granny and tell her it's cute that she's just "going to see where … Continue reading Another New Year Manifesto
If it weren't for words, how many wars, ranging from spats between neighbors to global entanglements, could be avoided?
Now, moments of clarity when I started to understand a bit more about the housing crisis. Mood: ominous clouds on a highway. I watched The Big Short last night, on Thanksgiving ironically enough. Why ironic? Well, if you haven't seen the movie (which is also morbidly humorous), it's about the housing crisis. You know, that period … Continue reading Takeaways from the Great Recession
I'm deciding what to do with this space. Because right now it's just a mish-mosh. Kind of like my life. Feels like it's on the verge of changing, but not quite there. I've been throwing myself in a number of directions, hoping something sticks. It feels inauthentic to be casually re-posting articles I write for … Continue reading Hello .blog
Doom and gloom seems to be the recent theme, so here is some sass that I wrote for my latest post on the Mighty: How do you feel about disabilities? Because I have one. Whether seeking employment or a date, if you have an illness, condition, or disability, there’s always the question of when you should “disclose” … Continue reading Some sass about disability
Since I've been diagnosed with narcolepsy, I've not taken the time to fully process it. Sure, I experience it everyday. I live in a constant state of "I'm tired," without knowing what that really means. Is my tired really more tired than your tired? Aren't we both as tired as we feel? I shouldn't be … Continue reading Narcolepsy is everything I’m not
A little repost from what will soon be coming from muah on my school of public health's blog... Also, it's much more humorous than my current state of mind! At the risk of confirming many a basic girl stereotype (I'm also in a sorority... double points?), I'm going to explain why there is evidence pointing … Continue reading How the Bachelor and graduating are basically the same thing
