I am not lost…

State of the Rion

I figure we’ll talk personal today. It’s a fitting day to do such. Besides, a lot has happened since the last time I updated you. (Since I can’t remember when that was.)

Learning About Myself

Being unemployed gives me a good chunk of time to look at myself and how I work, because in all technicality, it puts me in the situation I want to be in. Able to devote all my time to writing and other such endeavors, able to focus only on what I want to focus on, all the time in the best part of the day to go walking…

Of course, what it usually turns into is hours of me staring at Youtube, occasionally playing some video games, and then writing for about half an hour each night so that I don’t lose my streak on 4thewords. Not exactly productive.

So what exactly is it that puts me here, instead of where I want to be? Can I get better at it?

Bullet Journal Update

So I’m not sure I’ve really updated you all since the beginning of my endeavor into the world of bullet journaling. I started in September and had the very best of intentions. November came and…well…yeah. November happened. It’s been spotty for a while, but I’m making a concerted effort to get back up and running with my bujo beginning with today, and the week ahead. Especially since I have a new job (!!!! FINALLY) it’s going to be very important for me to stay organized and make sure all of the things I need to do stay together.

Also, I think a bullet journal or two for work will be a good idea.

May Day, Mayday!

So yeah, you may notice this is going up late. Apologies, it’s been…a time.

Here’s the state of the Rion:


April 3, 2017



This post has been a very…very…long time in coming. I’m writing it a bit in advance, and even now I find it hard to believe that I’m actually getting to a point where I can write this. It’s not TECHNICALLY official right now, as of the time that I’m writing this to you, but by the time you see this…it will be.

I’ve published my first novel.

Heart Attack Waiting to Happen

So I’m writing this at about ten until midnight on March 3rd, because I’m forced to stay up as I stare at my computer, terrified. I have my laptop set up next to my desktop, because I’ve just had one of the most terrifying things happen to me. One of the most terrifying things that can happen to an author.

My external hard drive appears to be crashing, corrupting, and taking my manuscripts with it.

Mirror Into the Past

I saw a sentiment on Twitter the other day, talking about a friend of mine. We have very different stories, but at our core there’s a lot we share in common. But the sentiment (from a friend of theirs) was this:

“She always looked so desperate and sad. Now they look happier.”

Hey everyone.

This is really not a post I wanted to be writing today. But I think you all know by now that female-bodied, transmasculine, reliant on the ACA for healthcare, and a whole bunch of things that are in jeopardy now.

I’m writing this from my bed, because the only times I’ve been able to get up has been to go to the bathroom, and take yet another Xanax. This election has struck me to the bone and terrified me. I do no longer feel safe in my country.

So I’m going to be taking a break from this. From the blog, the videos… I can’t focus. I can’t think. And I don’t want to give you half-assed content.

Be strong, my friends. Take your moment to grieve and come back stronger. It’s all see can do.

And I’ll see you all there, ready to fight with you.

Finding a Method for My Madness

I’ve always liked the idea of a day planner, but I’ve never been very good at keeping one. Even when I was in high school and they gave you one every year to track your assignments, I did the bare minimum with it, and always wanted to do more and didn’t manage to do it. I had friends who tracked everything in their life through agendas and journals, and I was always jealous of their organized ability. And while this particular method has been floating around me for a while now, I never really looked into it. After all, journals, diaries, agendas…all of those never worked well for me.

But the bullet journal might just prove itself useful.

Until the Very End, Always

I don’t have any of the original posts or quotes that went with this, but this has been bouncing around my brain and my Facebook for a while now, and I CANNOT LET IT GO UNDEFENDED. I CAN’T.

So one of my friends on Facebook said (or shared someone who said, I can’t remember) that instead of focusing on “creepy Professor Sneep” and his “borderline obsession with another man’s wife” we should be remembering James Potter’s devotion to his son and family–replacing “Always” with “Until the very end,” which to my memory is what James says to Harry just before the final showdown with Voldy.
