I think it’s safe to say that I had a wild year. At the end of each year, I like to sum up the successes and failures, and this year I was just like… where do I start? Of course 2020 pulled some shit on everyone. But I feel like 2021 was just two 2020sContinue reading “2021: A Year in Review”

Indiana, I Guess
Bless me, babies, for I have sinned. It has been five months since my last blog post. If you know me, you know that I’ve been through a hell of a lot in the past five months. I became unemployed for the second time in just over a year. I went through the hellish processContinue reading “Indiana, I Guess”
On the Verge of Unemployment
It’s June again. It seem like this shit happens every year or something. Today was the first day of my last week of work as a Teaching Assistant.

My First Website Was Bought by a Japanese Gaming Company
Welcome to my new website. I’m not quite sure what I hope to accomplish here, but I wanted to make a space for myself in this weird world. My old site, brettelizabeth.com, got bought by a Japanese gaming company after I let my site lapse. I’m too cheap to buy it from them, so they’llContinue reading “My First Website Was Bought by a Japanese Gaming Company”
