I know moving won't magically make my life better, but I guess at this point, I don't see the harm in believing that it will.
Happy Pride Month to all my beautiful queer friendos, out there!
This year, I wanted to do something that could be simultaneously important for the queer community, while also not taking discussions around our liberation and empowerment too seriously. When Pride Month or discussions around LGBTQIA+ topics come around, it almost always has a tendency to become a drag, a reminder that we're still second class citizens. While it's important to shed light on our oppression, because we are still VERY MUCH targeted by those in power for having our rights stripped away, being queer isn't all doom and gloom. We have so much to be joyous about as queer people, and I wanted to give that joy the spotlight this month.
It's absolutely bonkers to me that I've been streaming on Twitch for a whole 5 years, now. Five years of one of the hardest jobs I've done, but also the most rewarding, and most revealing when it comes to my work ethic, how I deal with setbacks, and adapting on the fly. I can't picture myself doing anything else right now (except perhaps doing narrative work for video games...hint hint nudge nudge, game devs) and this job has definitely given me so, so much to be grateful for, as well as help me rack up accomplishments I never thought I could attain.
even born, and stuffing my face with candy corn (I know, I'm polarizing). October is always one of my favorite months of the year, where I get to fully embrace how much I love all things spooky, which I already do throughout the year, but October just makes it so much more special. To make it even more exciting, I'll be closing spooky season out with a fright-filled, spooktacular weekend full of raising money for charity!
The first EVER Gayming Awards is happening this Wednesday at 12pm PST, and I'm super excited and honored to be co-streaming it onto my Twitch channel!
Though Thanksgiving has some problematic historical contexts, I still enjoy taking today to take stock of what's going on in my life, and noting all the things I'm thankful for. It's magical for the brain, and so helpful for reminding us what's important in our lives.
Happy New Year, y’all. Go forth, kick some butt (metaphorically), and make this next decade the best one, yet.
There’s a lot to update y’all on. First, let’s start with NaNoWriMo. We’re almost a week out from NaNoWriMo, and…surprise, surprise, I didn’t get to the 50k word count goal. That’s okay! I had the odds stacked against me. I started a week into the month, and I took a trip during the last week …
The day before I left for TwitchCon this year, I was having the worst bout of imposter syndrome. I was putting stickers and business cards into small plastic bags, thinking “is this work even worth it?” Would anyone want those stickers, anyway? Would anyone even want to say hi? To meet me? To talk with …
My latest piece on my Medium account is up! I talked about the recent "straight pride" parade that happened in Boston, and gave my two cents about why straight pride is WILDLY unnecessary. I'm getting so sick of this topic coming up every time the queer community makes progress, or has moments of celebrating pride, …
