I’m seeing a new therapist. The new therapist senses that the start of my school year is a huge source of stress and anxiety for me. (Really? I can’t get out of bed and I’ve lost all interest in living, but that’s a normal reaction to the first week of school, right? Right? It’s not? Damn.) So he asks me...


Coming Fall of 2015: The First Ever Feminist Breeder Retreat!

tfb-retreat-draft-promo

m4s0n501 People have been asking me for years to have some sort of feminist breeder conference or get together and I’ve always thought it sounded like a fun idea. But it also sounded incredibly expensive, time-consuming to plan, and a nightmare to coordinate. BUT, I’m graduating next Spring and I’ll have more time on my hands in 10 months, so...

Des Moines VBAC Workshop

Apparently this is the summer of literally torturing myself in the name of personal growth. I have tested the upward limits of my stamina, pain threshold, and sanity in order to achieve a few personal goals that some people might think are important, but others might consider Pure Crazy. Seven weeks ago, I dove full force into a Couch-to-5K running...


Hungover and Inspired in Kansas City (Vlog)

KCMO-7youtu_be

Yeah, basically everything’s gonna be a vlog while I’m here in KCMO. I just have so much to report, so many things to say, and too many details to keep track of to try to craft it all into the written word right now. Plus, most of my work here is writing a huge program plan so I’m a little...
