Suddenly, we’re on the 12th day of the New Year. If you are reading this — and you have managed not to go crazy, maim yourself, work yourself to death, get defeated by the monsters that live inside your head, continue to be friends with a select but awesome group of people — and basically,…

Hello 2016! 

   Hello 2016 – and thank you 2015 for a fruitful start for KamikazeeGirl.  2015 has been a very auspicious start for this blog. I purchased my domain name Last January 1, 2015 with the intention to take this site publicly. While it took me six months, in June of 2015, to finally have the…
