5Wits Puzzle Rooms

I live near Albany NY, and we just got a new area in one of our malls called 5Wits. I’d never heard of it before, but when they advertise things called “Drago’s Castle,” “Deep Space,” and “Tomb,” I knew it had to be interesting. And I was not wrong.

Nerds Gotta Eat: Meal Planning

Today is the day, Fangirls. I’m currently on a train to New York Penn Station, where I will transfer to a train to Baltimore Penn Station, and become a permanent resident of the State of Maryland. I don’t like eating crabs (since I’m vegetarian), but I’m excited to taste what other fantastic foods the state has to offer. One of the things I have been looking forward to for months is meal planning.

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.

Moving Roadtrip

Tomorrow we move my dresser, filled with clothing and housewares, from New York to Maryland. I’m terrified. I know it’s goofy to be scared of moving a dresser, but it’s a big step. I feel like it makes it even more real than just signing the lease.

I think it’s more real because my clothes are gone. Obviously not all of my clothes, but a good amount of my winter and fall clothing is packed up in a space bag, in one of the dresser drawers. It’s a weird concept, that so much of my life is going down to Maryland a month before I do. There are tons of empty frames on my walls, and I’m living out of a large tote. But I think this will be better than having so few clothes in August that I can barely function. I’ll (of course) be bringing things down with me then, but a lot of this stuff wouldn’t be able to fit in my carry on, or would run a higher risk of being ruined (art).

It’s also difficult because we’re working with such limited space. The boy had to move and condense a lot of his stuff so I would be able to bring in my dresser, and though I feel bad, I appreciate it more than anything. If I had to buy a new, interim dresser, that would be another $30 spent on something I already had. I’ve cut down on spending a lot lately, and it’s difficult, but worth it for not living here anymore.

I’m scared. I’m scared that I’ll not make it, that I’ll regain weight I’ve lost, that I won’t be able to write much while I’m there, and that I’ll lose contact with my friends and family at home. It’s a huge step, and one of the things a friend told me was that, “[I’ll] never feel ready. [I’ve] just got to go out and do it.” It’s terrifying that it’s common knowledge that you won’t feel ready for a big move. But I can’t let that fear hold me back.

Feminerd: “Yes Means Yes” Legislation

sourcefed--3259--yes-means-yes-law-redefines-rape--large.thumbNew York is doing a pretty neat thing, Fangirls. The rules & regulations that New York enacts aren’t always the best, but this time, I couldn’t agree more. A few months ago, New York adopted a law requiring consent for any & all sexual activity on the campuses of it’s 64 State University of New York (SUNY) schools. Now, that law is being positively reformed, and spreading to all New York college, both public & private.
