March 12th, Sunday

A good morning. I somehow didn’t feel the time change at all. Maybe a little bit, but I still woke up at 8am to make breakfast and play with the pet baby rats (who are so cute and growing so quickly!)

My Second Infusion | A Life Update 

If you haven’t read my first post about this, you should probably check it out.  As a follow up, this time went SO much better. My nurse was my best friends mom, and she is GOOD at what she does. My body was also more cooperative. Nothing went wrong or even slightly funny, it was the ideal experience. An infusion, burger, and trip to the art store later and I’m set to resume life! Which is exciting because symptoms that were taken away with the last infusion started to come back on Wednesday and really came back yesterday. Sigh. Buh-bye

Senility | Thoughts

I currently live at home with my parents, we all live with my grandfather to take care of him. Recently his mental state has been dependent on his health. He’s got a P.hD in the Classics, but as his health deteriorates… Today I overheard my dad talking to my grandpa (since the g-pa is almost deaf, it’s very easy to over hear the yelled conversations) “Whatcha got there?” My dad yells at about 11:00 am (grandpas breakfast time), “…. those are dog treats.” “Wha?” deaf dude says. “Dog. Treats. Look,” he picks up and points at the package, ” ‘Because

A Rant About My Cat

When I was four years old I got a cat for my birthday. Almost 15 years later and I’ve still got him! I’ll blog about the birthday event later because I was pretty funny as a four year old, but right now I need to get this off my chest.  As I said, 15 years. I’ve had my cat, Stanley, for FIFTEEN YEARS. They’ve been good and solid! But now he officially qualifies as an old cat. An obnoxious old cat. In his old age he has actually become a lot more relaxed, less territorial (stopped pissing on everything). However,

Suicide Squad | Movie Summary

SPOILER ALERT!!!! You have been warned. Here’s a sloppy but hopefully thorough summary of what went down in Suicide Squad. Whether you haven’t seen it or are just a bit rusty, here goes…. : Superman is dead. The world needs a new villain-management plan.  Amanda Waller (an intelligence officer and all around boss-ass-bitch) creates the mighty “task force X” which is basically a group of criminals that each have supernatural powers. Colonel Rick Flag (who is a normal human) is put in charge of them and basically can only control them because each of the criminals has a nano bomb

My First Infusion Experience | My IBD Diary

Warning: This post will contain medical content- lots of needle talk! Disclaimer: This is just my personal experience. It is different for everyone. My Infusion Experience With that out of the way, I’m going to talk about my first infusion treatment for my severe ulcerative colitis. I was only recently diagnosed, the “severe” part of the diagnosis is what got me to this stage of treatment faster. I’m only 18 and still babied, so my mom was with me the whole time as she normally is to deal with all the technical details. First, I was sat in a room.

Dancing For Two Design | A Maternity Shirt

Dancing for Two Quirky quinn pascal

Sitting on the side of a dance class I go to, watching one of the participants (who is currently 29+ weeks pregnant) inspired me to make this design! “Dancing for two” is my play on the typical ‘eating for two’ that’s commonly associated with… well, people carrying another person in them!

IBD Diary 1

Warning: Explicit language and body talk. (Other disclaimer: This is a record of my personal experiences. Not everyone goes through the same thing, but I know some can relate.) Alright this is a personal matter, so if you don’t have Inflammatory Bowel Disease or someone in your life with such, you probably want to click away. Seriously, it’s okay. I won’t be offended. This is going to be almost completely a train of thought blog because I’ve rarely had the energy to get to the point of sitting up and typing. Had I done this a week ago, the text

My Dream Job & My Proudest Moment

My ultimate dream job… …would be an author/blogger/artist… etc. At the moment however, I’ve been practicing special effects makeup. I think it would be incredible to create creatures and make prosthetics for movies, painting halloween masks and all that. Eventually I would like to go to cinema makeup school for this, but in the mean time I’m just working on learning in my bedroom. I would also love to be a teacher someday. I have a lot of jobs that I would love doing! My proudest moment. I’m not sure I have one… odd, I know, but I enjoy small
