Freelancing Adventure! Super happy #FML

I have recently taken up, in my free time, reaching out to score some social media, marketing, branding, and web consultation work. Easy enough, right? I’ve been doing it for years, on and off. But this time it’s through freelancer.com. And this time it leaves a sour taste in my mouth and I feel as though I’ve aged twenty years. My hair is white. That might be from the bleach I used earlier to dye […]

Writing Prompt #1

The year is 2347 and your character is a soldier on a mid-size transport spaceship. The government that you are loyal to is suspected of performing horrendous experiments on aliens. Your character and another co-worker decide to put an end to it.   Amanda stares at me as I eat the pale, lifeless ration in my hand. Licking my fingers and the like, making sure to down every stupid gulp of it. It is innately […]

Complications 2

It’s not fun to sit in the office. It’s not fun to file paperwork, and so, I get that cute brunette with hips for days to type my shit up. Not that I can’t do it myself, but she’s keen on me, and it makes it easier than having to do it myself. I pay for it of course. As I have paid for many a thing as only someone handsome and without decency can […]

Complications 1

If we were to talk about openly I’d have to say it started a long time ago. This need to solve all the intricacies of the world into a single, fallible bubble. The problem with bubbles is that they effectively pop at some point. An absolute, a desire for the entirety of solved thought. Of course that’s never how it ends up. Murphy’s Law and all. Maybe I would’ve been better off as a fucking […]

Cartoons? For Adults? I shit you not.

I am huge anime nerd trash. I hoard memes and watch Dramatical Murder for shits and giggles. All the boy butts, all the time. Horrible vehement trash, slathering fanservice, copious amounts of violence and dat booty or dos tatas. I watch it all. Except Naruto or One Piece because those shows give me brain cavities. But. My dear friends. Knowing I am anime trash, there are some movies and television shows you simply cannot miss […]

Failed Artist: A Short Memoir

I didn’t do much today. I am preparing for a job trajectory shift, so I spent my time doing chores, psyching myself up, and getting pumped. Tomorrow I’ll do laundry, do some research, and pick out my clothes. I slept, I ate food, drank coffee, played with the cat, and doted on the boy wonder (boyfriend). Generally, a good day. Then, as I sat and talked art with some buddies, not so much. I looked […]

Web Design No-Nos; Stop Making Users Angry

Hi. I am Kira Leigh, an artist, singer, writer, and general master overlord. I am sometimes Kira Maintanis, a web designer, SEO maven, and social media philanthropist. I have a desperate plea I want all of the major companies of the world and every web designer and/or developer that ever lived to stop doing one specific thing. Stop nagging your consumers to sign up for your newsletter with passive aggressive popups. Things like ‘No I […]

The Depression Blanket, Emotional Reserves, & Other Observations

I am not an unfeeling empathy-less monster that spouts vitriol and lambasts people who try to get me to care. Though sometimes it feels like I am, and there is a guilt in this, because I know there’s a sliver of truth in this. Some backstory: I had a pretty rough childhood (cry moar), was depressed for most of my life (sobsob), and just recently made my dreams come true working at a job I […]

Pen-Fairy, Gel Pen/Ink/Digital, 8.5″x11″

Did a cool little doodle last night when Trevor went to bed early (8:00pm). We always go to bed around 9:30pm or so, so it was strange, and I spent the time to doodle in pen and smudge around a fairy face.
