In February, I started taking photos of my outfits and posting them on Instagram. It started out as a self-love thing, to combat some pretty awful, gnarly feelings of inadequacy, self-doubt, and anxiety brought about by the big work change I went through in January (tldr: I worked at the same firm for 7 1/2… Continue reading How to Win Friends and Influence People???
Like last week’s #FandomFriday, this week’s theme is also books! (Shocker, I’m sure…) Books were my very first fandom, before fandom was a word I knew or a concept I understood.
