TTT: Why I Love Cats

Alright, look, this post is a total cop-out. I don’t know why, but I’ve just been struggling hardcore with TTT lately, and I haven’t loved any of the TARG topics enough to do them, and this post has been sitting in my scheduled list forever without it actually being anything, and then, while I was […]

Sleeping at Last

Sometimes, you just know. The opening page of a book is so wow that you know it’s going to be a five-star read. The first few minutes of a film are exactly what you love that you know it’s going to take twice as long to watch because you’re going to be pausing to shout […]

My Dream Home

When we were first approaching 2020, my mom kept saying, “This is your year. This is when everything happens for you.” Obviously, 2020 has been a bit of a dumpster fire, so she’s tried to take back that statement, but I won’t let her. Because even though 2020 is awful, it is also my year. […]

TTT: Favorite Albums

Music is such a huge part of my life, but I almost never talk about it on the blog. I’ve been to over 40 concerts, many of them repeats of my favorite bands, and I can, with confidence, say that music has definitely saved my life in the past. My taste is wild–I can jump […]

I Am Portuguese and Proud

Before we dive into this post, I wanted to take a moment to address the absolutely horrendous rhetoric that She Who Shall Not Be Named has been spewing all over the Internet like some kind of swamp troll. It’s very, very simple, and if you don’t agree with this statement, see your way off of […]

Review: Rhapsody & Glenburn Earl Grey Tea

Hiya folks! Today’s post was supposed to be something else entirely, but I’ve decided to do something very near and dear to my heart instead. With the chaotic state of the world, my favorite tea place, Jolie Tea Co. in Salem, MA, has temporarily closed, and I want to support them in whatever way I […]

Retail Will Prepare You for Literally EVERYTHING

Today’s post was supposed to be me shouting about how excited I am that I get to travel to the UK in a few days, but alas, it’s not happening. Due to the growing concern around the coronavirus, we’ve decided to postpone our trip until things have settled down, and while I’m pretty angry about […]

“Are you a witch?”

I don’t know if anyone has ever directly asked me this question, but they skirt around it pretty neatly. The tl;dr answer is yes. I can’t really tell you when it happened, but I definitely know why. I found Buddhism first, in December 2011, and it probably wasn’t until after college that I started exploring […]

Review: Versailles Teas

This review is so late since I tried all of the French teas in December, but here we are. Better late than never, right? ICYMI, Jolie Tea Co. in Salem, MA is the most delightful place on the planet, and I’ve reviewed their Harry Potter and Alice in Wonderland teas. I’m always over the moon […]

Scifi vs Science Fiction

Hi, my name is Mary, and I’m obsessed with space. I once wrote an entire post dedicated to why I love space so much. I’ve reviewed First Man, talked about my top 5 fiction and nonfiction books set in space, wrote a space short story that was published and that will someday be a novel, […]
