Ever since my childhood I’ve been obsessed with the supernatural. Spirituality, religion, astrology, magic—if it was difficult to explain or measure, I was geeked. With that interest, it was only natural that when it felt like my life was falling apart (as well as when my life was actually falling apart) I would turn to […]
I preface this post with “most likely,” because it was a self-diagnosis, I probably won’t be able to get in front of a psychologist for a while because I’m currently living in Africa, and because many of the traits listed are me to a T. The discovery was by sheer happenstance. An email came through, […]
Lately I’ve been feeling rather soft, like some kind of pillow full of fluffy stuff. Maybe more like the fluffy stuff than the pillow itself.

The majority of yesterday was spent running errands and clearing […]

Hello my dear readers, It is I, Aminah, back for an update because I’ve been gone for a long minute, a minute longer than I’d anticipated.
