    DIY Tool Storage Ideas

    Every home likely has a set of hand tools and equipment, and therefore we need a place to store them. Even if we’re not especially keen on home repair, most of us have tried our hands on some DIY work. Craftsmen and people who enjoy DIY projects dedicate entire rooms to their work and tools. While we should aim to keep dangerous items out of kids’ reach, proper tool organization will also keep you from misplacing any equipment. Most of us have trouble staying organized, so we’re going to explore a few ideas which can help you keep the chaos to a minimum.

    How to Clean a Keurig Machine

    I love my coffee. I can't carry on with my morning if I don't have my coffee first thing. In fact, I'm not even fully awake until I comfortably finish my first coffee of the day. Yes, I'm not fully awake even when my kids are jumping on my husband and me in bed at 6 AM. This is also another reason why I seriously need my coffee.

    How to Move Out as a Teenager—What You Must Consider

    How to Move Out as a Teenager—What You Must Consider

    I moved out of my family home at 18-years-old. I was not kicked out, but circumstances within the home became very difficult, to the point that I found that it was an impossible place to live. To do so, would mean that I would go backwards rather than forwards in recovering from depression and mental illness. It was a painful and disappointing endeavor, but one I am glad I made. It had seemed impossible, I didn't know where to begin and I needed to move quickly.

    Decluttering 101: Trans Edition

    Decluttering 101: Trans Edition

    It’s that time of year where everyone's talking about “new year, new me!” and “out with the old, in with the new.” For some people, decluttering and downsizing is a huge part of that process. There are plenty of articles out there that give you tips and tricks on how to do this properly, but very few articles take into consideration the effect that being transgender has on the decluttering process. When I first did the minimalism challenge in January of this year, I found that my decluttering process was guided by my experience as a trans person. For example, when downsizing my jewelry collection, the items personalised with my dead name were among the first things to go. So if you’re trans, and thinking of decluttering for the new year, this article is here to offer some unique tips and tricks. Please keep in mind that these are all only suggestions, and they may not all work for everyone.

    DIY - Homemade Dry Laundry Detergent

    As my lifestyle swings further and further towards a radical self-reliance (even though a friend of mine insists there's nothing radical about self-reliance), it is obvious that additional consideration must be given to the things we take for granted in our lives. A sense of cleanliness and respectability are mandatory if one of the primary objectives is to mingle with the people of the world and seek their stories. It goes without saying that you cannot smell the scent of my active lifestyle through a video posted online, but I guarantee that I am very self conscious as I proceed with my plans of going completely off grid with every aspect of my life.

I always wanted to be a model and or actress but between kids & my foster parents I never thought I'd be able to. Now I am modeling and acting, I've changed my appearance and the way I feel about myself and I feel more in control of my life. It took a long time but it is worth it. The way I see myself now, no one can bring me down ever again. I know that from the start if wouldn't be easy but I knew it was possible.
