Responsibilities of Being a Parent

Simply creating a child doesn’t automatically make you a parent. Congratulations, you had sex and got pregnant. Good job. That’s just the beginning. I don’t know any perfect parents. Everyone has flaws, everyone has problems, and there’s no instruction manual for raising a tiny human. There’s no flawless, surefire way to know you won’t screw…Read More

Happy (Belated) Pride Month!

It’s hard to believe that given an entire month, I couldn’t find time to make this post, sheesh. Between volunteering for the Special Olympics, finishing up my latest costume commission, and preparing for Anime Expo, I just found myself too swamped to do much of anything else. But anyway, on to the topic of this…Read More

Models are just clothes-hangers anyway. Skinny little things you hang clothes…Read More

Let’s talk, Shall we?

Scarlet Letter or Easy A Let’s take a minute to discuss nude modeling. What is your opinion on it? Positive? Negative? Neutral? Where is the line between artistic and pornographic?

Hetalia Rant

The historical figures of Hetalia need more love! (And I feel really bad for those of you who don’t follow me because of Hetalia, because you must get irritated by my constant spam of anime stuff) But seriously. For a series about history, the actual people portrayed in it are grossly unappreciated. A lot of…Read More
