Random… Because My Mind Stays Busy

I read a meme once that said a creative person's brain is the equivalent of having 2,625 tabs open all at once and I'm starting to feel inclined to believe it. I've fallen back into expressing myself creatively often after a really long hiatus and it seems I've forgotten how ADHD my mind really is. … Continue reading Random… Because My Mind Stays Busy

The Toxic Friend Strikes Again — The Loopy Paper Geek

I recently remembered I have a blog that used to be one of the joys in my life. My days have been consumed with healing old wounds that my attention to, was far overdue.

If I were to count the times I've felt out-of-my-head, bat-shit, cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs crazy there simply wouldn't be enough time to do anything else, let alone write this blog post.

I'm willing to allow you your right to disagree with me because I'm a fair person.
