Ultimate Blog Party 2013!

I participated in this event last year and though I didn't put much effort into it (being a new blogger I was kind of paranoid) I still made some really awesome bloggy friends and I am looking forward to doing the same this year!

So, here's why you want to internet-stalk me:

--I am full of colorful language (cursing) wit, dry humor, black humor, cynicism, and all sorts of other fun things.   I try to write most entries with lots of humor.

--No posting of recipes, DIY's, or anything crafty, so you don't have to feel pressured -and out-domesticated.  An octopus could out-domesticate me.  However I do post my artwork and that's always nice to look at (hopefully.)

--I can be very contemplative and philosophize on my blog.  I'm open and raw and abrasive, which may or may not be a good thing depending on what you like to read.

--My life is interesting and cool.  I just moved to Sweden in 2012 and things have been awesome ever since.

And that's about it really.  You can read more on my about me page, or if you're feeling super nosy, check out my foster care entries.  You will also see a lot of talk about depression, mental illness, and such things.  I don't like the taboo nature of mental illness and so I strive to be open about my feelings on it and the perceptions society has on it (and why they are wrong.)  There's also a healthy sprinkling of griping, and enjoying nature, and photography, and more griping because I am kind of a bitch.

Welcome, and if you like what you see and think we may have similar interests/styles/desires to stalk, please do leave me a comment and I will go check you out!

  5. Hi Patricia! Stopping by from #UBP13! It's awesome that you're living in Sweden! Since you obviously like to travel, I thought you might be interested in learning a little secret to vacations that can be budget-friendly - even around Europe! So I'd like to invite you to stop by my Party blog http://bit.ly/10MplfB!
