Hello December, you last month of the decade you!

amazeballs armchair

Oh boy, November flew by. So fast, indeed, that I almost allowed myself to forget about failing at Nanowrimo… almost. But we’re moving forward into December! Alas, what with winterizing and moving out of the RV, moving into our new apartment, a trip to Austin, family in town for Thanksgiving, and my ever-persistent self-sabotage and lack of discipline, I did not win Nanowrimo this year. Not even close. A far cry from 50k with my 10,808 words, but hey, those are ten thousand words I wouldn’t have otherwise. And, I’ve finally decided on my first writing project, after changing up my plan and outline about 13 times over the course of the week and a half I was actually really trying for Nanowrimo — I’m committing to writing a […]

what I have been up to lately

family dinner

I figured because it’s been a while since I started and then subsequently stopped my emPATHETIC blog, I could probably stand to do a brief summary of my life for the past year and a half or so. Here are all the major highlights that led up to where I’m at now – about to write a novel in 30 days for NaNoWriMo! Also, if you were reading when I posted my last RV update last year with what I think was the Canada blog post, then I feel like I left y’all in a place of me feeling totally overwhelmed and out of control amongst the RV madness, so I feel like I owe people the most recent update even moreso after leaving everyone with a taste in […]

I thought that for my first short story installment of October, I’d answer one of the questions Reid and I have received the most since embarking upon our RV journey: “How did you two decide to quit your jobs and do this?” The answer might disappoint you, I’m afraid. Or, at the very least, underwhelm you. I shall press on in the telling though. The main reason I grow concerned that people will be alarmingly underwhelmed by the backstory of our decision is because of the fact that neither one of us even remembers how or who first thought of the RVing idea. In February 2017, Reid and I went out for Valentine’s Day date night dinner at a local brewery in Redondo Beach. I was in-between jobs and […]

ew gross

I just had the thought that maybe writing would seem easier if I just treated it like a Facebook post gone long that I would end up saving to draft and never posting. So here goes my first attempt at that! Imma be real y’all, RV grossness is coming up. I know it’s been awhile, but if you were squeamish at my Instagram video series of dumping the black tank, you may not wish to continue reading. Well people, it’s finally happened. To my mom Dianne Corbin, all your YouTubers weren’t wrong about this being a real issue for RVers. Especially after we left our RV untouched for months, I was so sure that we would come back to find this then. However despite my fears, we never faced […]
