Halloween Short Story – Old Soul

So the last month has been pretty crazy, but on a plane at one point I managed to write a quick short story for Halloween, featuring the demon Kalir from Wings of the Fallen.

I know it’s almost a month late, but I wanted to get it posted still, as I liked how it turned out, even though it was a bit more somber than I had initially intended the story to be. Kalir does have such a long, tragic past though, and it’s hard to avoid.

I’ve posted the story over HERE. \o\

Thanks for reading! If you posted a Halloween themed story I would love to read it; please feel free to share in the comments! I’m super behind on everything so I probably missed a lot. D:

Wandering Wednesday – This is Halloween

Sometimes things are unintentionally creepy, and that just makes them even scarier.

Okay, adding filters and making the picture you took black and white doesn’t help.

Hope everyone has a safe Halloween this week! Me, I will be curled up on my couch watching movies with the lights out so kids don’t come to the door. \o\

Wandering Wednesday – It’s Almost Halloween!

So here, since it’s almost Halloween, have a picture that I took while driving in Indianapolis, Indiana over the weekend. The house was already creepy [and apparently has looked this way for many years] and then someone decided it would be funny to decorate it to make it just extra creepy.


Filters make everything extra creepy.


Wandering Wednesday – Noms in Seoul, Korea

While I was in Korea, I took a lot of pictures of food, because I was pretty much in heaven. I’ve selected some of my favorite dishes, to commemorate it being a year since I visited there. I really want to go back! Also I can’t believe I didn’t share these pictures here, but I did share them on my instagram, so please feel free to follow me there if you ever want more food pics. 8D

As someone with lots of food allergies, I was really thankful to be roaming the city with friends and coworkers who could help make sure that I wasn’t eating anything that would cause a problem. Even with all my allergies, I was still able to eat so much food, it was really amazing!

SO much food!

I mean, look at this spread. So much food, and it was only lunch! I had delicious soba.

My favorite part about eating was that it was very communal. Each meal was just a spread of food that everyone could share, and that made it even more enjoyable!

ALL THE TUNA don't mind my terrible panorama shot

Eating at Fresh Tuna House. My attempt at a panorama shot to show ALL THE TUNA that’s all this is, just different kinds of tuna. And egg.

I also learned that soju is a tricky drink that makes you think that you are invincible and then you wake up the next day realizing you are not and are thankful that the hotel restaurant has amazing soup that is perfect for a hangover when you can’t walk anywhere far without wanting to die.

This was some sort of soup, tbh I was so hungover I really don’t remember what I ordered but it was so good.

Also, their fluffy eggs put any other Korean BBQ place I have been to so far in California to SHAME.

This is majestic as fuck.

And speaking of BBQ, that was pretty much ridiculous and what I lived off of most nights. They didn’t mess around.

Celebratory BBQ

Glorious MEAT

I didn’t have much dessert, but when I did, it was, as everything else, amazing and ridiculous.

This was just at some place that we would consider a diner, I guess? They were known for their shakes, called Butterfinger Pancakes. But LOOK AT THIS.

My last meal in Korea was actually one of my favorite. It was Ginseng chicken soup. This dish blew my mind. It was a hot pot of water, still boiling, and the whole chicken inside. The chicken was stuff with ginger, rice, and garlic. . . it was magical.

Ginseng chicken soup was our last proper meal in Korea

If anyone knows where I can find this in California. . . I will love you forever

Now I’m going to go cry that I can’t eat any of this food right this moment.
