The Self-Care Diaries: A Summary

26 Feb 2018

Weeeell, it took a full month longer* than I originally planned, but I am pleased to announce that I finished formatting all of my self-care diaries from last year. *this truthfully just means I procrastinated It turns out there isn’t a very easy way to display WordPress entries in reverse chronological order (where January 1 is the first post you see, and December 31st the last).

Yesterday, I realized I didn’t know any details about any part of it, so I acquired an address with a time to show up, and the teensiest bit of background context behind the initiative. Great. I’m a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants-and-my-Google-Calendar kinda girl, so this morning I woke up and rolled out of bed into…
