Life Lately + Link Love #12

Life Lately + Link Love is a series where I talk about what I've been up to and share posts from the blogging community and from around the internet that I think you'd enjoy. You're always welcome to share what you've been loving lately in the comments.

Life Lately: 


This is my first post since March and initially I felt like I owed an explanation of where I've been, which is what prompted me to start typing. Feeling like I owe my readers/followers life updates is exactly why I needed this little hiatus. I don't know if I'll get back to blogging as regularly as I was before, I just feel so disconnected from it right now.

Fixing up the house has kind of come to a standstill since we've been busy with so much. It's at a livable point right now-- livable, but not where we want it to be.

Besides that, I'm doing really well right now and I'm happier than I've been in a long time. Back in February I mentioned that I had gotten involved with a local roller derby league and I gotta tell ya, it's what has been missing from my life. The derby community is so loving, supportive, and fun. Days when I don't put skates on are pretty darn dull, but thankfully those days don't come very often. I could go on and on...but maybe I'll save it for another time.

Oh, and huge shoutout to everyone who checked up on me while I was away. It really meant a lot to me.

Link Love:


  • Bangor Metro recently wrote a piece about derby in Maine!
  • Just because I've felt disconnected from blogging doesn't mean I've been disconnected from blogs-- y'all, I've been loving NoxTalks, a roller derby-centric blog.
  • Okay...one more skating-related thing then I'm done, I promise. Planet Roller Skate has been a huge help to me. Indy covers fundamentals, more advanced things, and lots of fun stuff. 
  • Denise started a freakin' podcast and it's wonderful. I really enjoyed episode #2.
  • If you like following tattoo artists on Instagram, I love Charline Bataille's work (and her stories).
  • Are daughters karmic retribution for men being awful to women in the past? Uh, no. Dara digs in.
  • Angela was kind enough to support me through my Ko-fi page. Thanks for your support, Angela!
