I think it’s high time we white women find our voice and speak up. We don’t get involved nearly enough. And it’s been awhile since we made something all about us. So let’s talk about it. Because something has been weighing on my mind and I don’t think I’m overreacting when I say the Super Bowl Halftime show ruined my life.
I have not written lately because anxiety is a monster and I could go on a lot of rants about a lot of things and share my thoughts on how the world is burning and I maybe think

As many of you know, I don’t have the highest opinion of Utah. But I am often, often suffering from a severe case of FOMO because most of my immediate family is there. And they do rad things. And I am never invited because I do not live in Utah and tbh “rad” is not totally on brand for me.
