I have Mars in Aries in my chart, so you can probably blame that.
The Absurdity of Dragons
There weren’t always dragons in the Valley. That would be absurd. The Valley was full of knights. Everyone knows dragons detest knights—something to do with their habit of barging into lairs, brandishing swords, and bellowing things like, "You vile creature!” or, "Horrid beast, meet my blade!”
Stolen Ships and Broken Spells
Black sails chased Alonzo Morant and Fergus Asher as they raced down the coast in a stolen boat. It was his own fault for involving Fergus in his plans, Alonzo thought ruefully as he trimmed the sails to pick up speed. Had he gone by himself--as he had intended--he would never have been seen, let alone chased by a warship.
Tracks To Cut Through The Noise
Punk rock calms me down. I have a mind that never wants to shut up. Sometimes the noise in my head gets too loud for any other type of music to drown out the sounds. I need songs that can make me stop thinking. I need singers who scream, so I don't have to. Give me music so chaotic that it overrides my thoughts. The right songs can take me to the other side of a dark mood. But first, they have to match my frenetic mind energy.
How to Make a Mess
I've judged myself for the ways I don't measure up. I know the best practices for being a functioning adult human. They involve apps, calendar reminders, gallon-sized water bottles, getting up early, and working out in the morning. Find the life hacks that will help you squeeze yourself into the right box.
All That Avocado Toast
I’m in an existential crisis. Here’s how my days start: I roll over and reach for my phone before my eyes kick in. Of course, I’ve slept in my contacts again; I’m a terrible person. I blink until I can read the screen. Once I drag myself out of bed, I put on a podcast about whatever show I’ve been binging and keep as quiet as I can while I’m getting ready for work. My roommates, Nina and Chris, work late nights in bars downtown. They’re usually going to bed when my day begins. I’m not a morning person either, but whenever I get too envious over them working nights, they come back with, “At least you have health insurance,” and that shuts me up. All three of us have master’s degrees.
