I'm Back! Life Lately and What's Coming.

Hi y'all! It's been a hot minute, hasn't it?


The last 2 years have been a whirlwind. If you don't follow me on Instagram @theocd_catholic, that is where I've been sharing more consistently, so I recommend heading over there for more frequent updates.


So what's been happening?

I don't know how to accurately summarize the last few years. Work and school have kept me busy. This blog is not my day job, so it has had to take a backseat to things that pay me, unfortunately. Additionally, some big life updates happened and then un-happened, so that has kept me busy as well. If you read my post about OCD and Romance, you'd know that I had a boyfriend. Key word, had. We proceeded to get engaged around Labor Day of 2021 and then called off our engagement on Easter Sunday of 2022. So that was a thing that happened, and that took up a LOT of my emotions, as well as time and energy. I talked about this on Instagram as well, so another reason to follow me over there.


Ending the engagement and the subsequent recovery has been... a lot. It was the right thing to do, and I'm in a much better place with it all now, but that doesn't take away from the struggle it was at the time. Please know that my sufferings during that dark Easter season were offered for you all as well as for a friend of mine who is coming up on his 1 year anniversary of priestly ordination. Please pray for Father D.


In the aftermath of the breakup, I also became involved with the young adults group at my parish and joined the leadership team there. I help lead a weekly Bible study, as well as assist in facilitating other events, and so that has also taken up a good chunk of my time in the last little bit.


What's New in this Space?

While there is not a lot of news to report here, I do have one exciting announcement that you may have missed if you don't follow me on Instagram...


I'm now an affiliate for TAN Books!


TAN is one of my favorite Catholic publishing houses, and so when they opened up an affiliate program, I was over the moon!


What this means for you, is that if you choose to order through my link, I will make a small commission off of your purchase, at NO EXTRA COST to you. This will help me cover things like the cost of web hosting, as well as owning my domain. At this time I do not have a discount code for you, though maybe that will be a possibility in the future. We shall see.




At the moment I run this blog entirely out of my own money, and wix just raised their rates for hosting, so any purchase you make from TAN Books using my link is GREATLY appreciated. Please do not feel obligated to use my link, but if you'd like this content to continue, it would be a huge help.


As far as other things that are new, I am trying to reply to the many emails, contact form submissions, and comments that you all have left in my absence. I appreciate your patience thus far as I continue to ease back into the blogging world, and hopefully I will have a reply for you soon!


Praying for you all! St. Therese, pray for us!
