Being Back

I know that DIY or a comic should be here, but I feel like it’s more important for me tow just free write a bit of what has been going on in my mind through the entirety of my break. I’ve been off twitter and instagram, for the most part, because while I have been suffering from more frequent depressive episodes, the past couple of weeks have been something worse than I’ve dealt with in a very long time.

EverStrong Thickening Conditioner by L’oreal

Alright you Fangirls with wild hair, lets get down to business. I’ve always struggled with maintaining my hair; I want it to be professional and cute, but also for it to function enough for me to be able to walk to work in the summer heat and humidity. It’s a lot to ask, I’m aware, but it’s something every curly-haired lady I know has dreamed of. When I saw a “thickening conditioner” up next in my sample box, I was a little worried. While my hair is thinner thanks to dyeing it, my curls don’t tend to do all that well with anything that adds thickness. It usually ends up in a massive frizz attack that is neither professional or cute.

Break

Fangirls, I need to take a break. Things are difficult and frustrating and my anxiety is disgustingly high. I have a lot of trouble managing stress and depression, and everything is so overwhelming right now. After tomorrow (Saturday July 16th), I will be taking a week-long break to concentrate on preparing things for moving and life. I’m trying to juggle too much right now, and though a week definitely isn’t enough, it’s as much of a break I can really take without falling too far behind in everything. I feel incredibly guilty about taking just the week, but I need to make myself safe and as comfortable as possible. I’m hoping things will be easier for me. I appreciate you’re understanding, and hope that you’ll continue to support Fangirls Are We. I will be back on July 24th.

Nerds Gotta Eat: Apple Cinnamon Bran Muffins

Alright Fangirls. I know we’ve talked about my struggles with bowel movements before, but whenever I’m even considering a road trip or any type of travel, I worry that it’s going to get worse. So awhile back, when my family went to Florida, I made some super tasty bran muffins for us to eat to keep us from getting backed up. Sitting too long can make it difficult for your body to function properly, so bran is incredibly important. Apples tend to help out quite a bit too, so these muffins were the perfect fix. Bonus: they were delicious.
