I won’t apologise for being me

Kiss of Beth

Don’t care what your old man say
Young blood, heaven hate a sinner
But we gonna raise hell anyway”

Raise Hell – Dorothy

Welcome back.

Thanks for sticking with me while I took some time off to re-group. I’m now going to explain why I felt like I had to.

Recently someone who should support me no matter what, tore into this blog and my character. Calling me and my writing fake. Calling me and my writing attention seeking and assuring me that everyone agreed. They even went so far as to question if my mental health problem was even real and if I was doing it just for reads.

This shook me and my confidence in my blog. I wont lie about it. I doubted myself and my pieces. I sat here and cried about the fact that someone who should love…

On taking care of yourself…

the twentysomething diaries

So…all of the sudden you’re 22 years old, employed full time (salaried, holla), are are just trying to figure your shit out. In the process of doing all of this, you’re also trying to balance lifelong friendships, a new(ish) relationship, car payments, loan payments, second jobs, third jobs, hobbies, and being a good daughter. Congrats, you’re me!

Just kidding. I mean not really, but yes about the part where I told you that you were me. I’m currently going through a pretty intense transitional phase in my life and I think part of the reason I started this blog was to help myself cope with everything I’m going through. I’ve always been a generally anxious person – I used to sit in my bed after bedtime in the first grade and worry myself sick that my parents were going to somehow fight and get divorced while I was sleeping. I…

From the Land of Anne

Well, it took me a year to get the balls to finally start writing this…

I always wanted to be a writer, or really just be smart enough to write; however, time flies by when your taking naps, taking care of kids, taking more naps, and occasionally travelling.

The funny thing is, when people see you online, they think of how amazing your life is. What they don’t see is the mental breakdowns, complete confusion, and really every obstacle you had to face in order to get to that “perfect” place in life.

So, this is the intro to my blog… to be honest I’m not sure what I want to talk about on here. Pretty much anything I want and anything that happens in my life, because if you know me, you know my life is a fucking whirlwind of bat-shit crazy.

So welcome to my world and I…

I hate technology. So naturally I created a blog.

Creativity, Healing, Humor, Technology, Transitions

Katrina Freitag

If I had it my way I would be running around the world without having to abide by intentions or boundaries.As beautiful as my mind is, it has created dis-ease for me most of my life without me realizing it. Now, I am trying on the understanding that my mind and all its creativity is here to work with me for the purpose of my soul’s greatest desire for expression. I’m writing this blog because I don’t know what else to do right now, because every time I have and idea and am ready to get jamming my body is like HAHA PSYCH! (Chronic illness is really fun.) I wanna scream at my Mr. Miyagi soul, telling my inner grasshopper to be patient so I don’t keep jumping around the field until I get chopped up by a weed wacker. This almost happened on several occasions before I learned how…

Happy Valentines Day girl!

If there is one thing that female bloggers/vloggers/any other ‘ggers on the internet love on Valentines Day more than the cheesy excuse for fancy gifts, it’s telling single people that you don’t need a man to treat you, just treat yourself. However, we’ve tried the whole ‘buy yourself overpriced chocolate bars because society tells you to’ year after year after year. Don’t you think it’s time to try something new?

Today, I’m going to share a few of the things I like to do to treat my soul. Bleh, I know that sounded cheesy – but when you’re in the midst of your busy lifestyle it is easy to let yourself fall out of sync with the little things that make you happy.

So, this Valentines Day, don’t fool yourself into thinking that an extra chocolate bar is all you need. Here’s a few of…

The main reason I decided to open up on a blog was, well, mainly because I cant write music, so I had to find a way to express certain things. My passion has always been to write, it doesn’t even matter what about. I just love getting lost in my thoughts, writing, singing and listening to music.. Words are powerful, so when I hear someone say “word is bond” I feel it like no other. I remember in school, I’d often be asked to write essays about the most ridiculous topics, and I could seriously do it with ease. An example.. would be writing about how you make your PB&J sammy.. I have this very convincing side to me. It’s crazy. I have like 10 draft rhymes/songs on my phone. Just because I can, just because it crossed my mind.

The BigComfyBlog was made for my own enjoyment of writing…
