If you didn’t know, writing prose and writing a blog post is a completely different experience. The tone, the diction and even the part of my brain that I use (anecdotally, but it certainly feels like it) vary widely between the two. Inspiration for what to write for a blog … Would you like to know more?
We all have a pet peeve (or two, or three…), but how do these affect our day? In general, I forget just what my triggers are for this kind of annoyance until it I run into again. For example, there’s a perfected ratio for chair to table height. If your … Would you like to know more?
Among some of my personal goals, I’ve written, “write more.” Which isn’t terrible quantitative, but whatever. So, while I tend to write prose and sometimes poetry, I think GeekyLogic will be a great tool for me to learn how to write blog posts. Blog posts are much closer to my … Would you like to know more?
There are hundreds of debt-consolidators, pay-day advance and other shady ways of handling money now-a-days. It doesn’t take a lot of intelligence to realize that most of these things are scams, or at the very least, a bad idea. Then there’s the average way of handling money, such as buying … Would you like to know more?
“Today [Aug 26th] is Women’s Equality Day, the 93rd anniversary of the 19th Amendment granting women the vote,” according to Irin Carmon of MSNBC. However, Women are far from equal in today’s society. Granted, I am far better off then my grandmother or even my mother when it comes to these issues, but … Would you like to know more?
I don’t know what it is about tiny, efficient spaces, but they seem to touch something deep inside me. The simplicity is beautiful, and I wish I could live like that. I think that’s why the minimalist and simple living trends caught my attention. Inspiration: An Escape From the Everyday … Would you like to know more?
The thing of the week (or whenever, really), is the world’s first 3D printed architecture. I’m, personally, a bit disappointed that is lacks a roof. Otherwise, I think it’s very ambitious and a step in the right direction. Finding a quick and repeatable method for building small structures like this … Would you like to know more?
Growing up, my family always had a lot of stuff. On occasion, we’d even sort through things and donate our extra, unwanted items. But I recall just about any excuse was a “good” excuse to keep something. So, when I finally moved out on my own, I took the majority … Would you like to know more?
I’ve decided to get a new domain name that’s easier to spell, recognize and associate with me and my personality. I also want to build a blog that has value to you, the reader. Not every reader will find value in my blog, nor will everyone agree with my opinions. … Would you like to know more?
So when I first saw the new Kindles on Amazon, I just about shit a brick. The Kindle Fire seemed like it would be the best little tablet, and I had visions of writing entire novels on it’s beautiful screen with a stylus. Well, it turns out (as anyone in the tech sphere will tell you), that it’s gotten it’s little Android guts ripped out of it. I’m sure it will serve it’s niche well, but I’m not included (yet.)

My traditional blog posts start with something akin to, “Wow, I haven’t posted in a long time!” No shit, Sherlock. Just look at the timestamps! Oddly enough, I really do wish I blogged more. I also don’t feel like I would really be any good at a blog about a specific topic. I read a lot of blogs about make-up and fashion, but lately I’ve moved more into the realm of interior design. I’d have a new blog every year, if not sooner.
The interior design bend has come from the fact that for the first time, I have my very own place. I feel like an adult. It’s liberating!

Here’s my fandom at it’s worst. I love Firefly and Serenity. If you haven’t seen it, you’re missing out. Anyways, a few years ago, I created a bobble-headed Geisha. This piece was mostly a proof-of-concept. It turned out decently, but imperfect, and I was disheartened. The project was lain aside, to collect dust on my mother’s shelf. Then, an organizer from the St. Louis “Can’t Stop the Serenity” event requested a custom geisha for their auction! I couldn’t have been more pleased. The bobble-head turned out great! I am again creating one (or more) geishas for this year’s event.
