We Got So Far To Go is written by Olivia, a 20 something living in the Midwest and writing to stay sane. I’m interested in swing dancing, rock climbing, mental health, social justice, feminism, atheism, intersectionality, gender, religion, philosophy, ethics, politics, pop culture, geek culture, nerddom, and well, just about everything in the world. These will all likely be addressed in here somewhere, as well as whatever else strikes my fancy. If you like what you see or want to get in touch, I’m at email@example.com.

I have a strong interest in protecting my mental health, and as this is my own blog I reserve the right to do whatever is necessary to keep myself safe and healthy.

I thought I should let you know that I shared your Skepchick piece “There Is Space for Quiet Activism” on my blog with some commentary. I’m entirely in agreement and enjoyed the piece, so it won’t be an unpleasant read for you. If you feel like checking it out, it’s here (but no pressure!): https://desknestshelf.wordpress.com/2015/09/21/activism-and-quietness/
Thanks for letting me know! I love your post 🙂
I’m glad! Thank you for yours.
I have just read your piece, “How I Remember Who I Am as Someone With Borderline Personality Disorder” which is posted on The Mighty. I don’t have BPD (instead, Bipolar) but I clicked on your essay because of the photo. Although I’m veryyyyyy much older than you are (from a generation that doesn’t have an open understanding of tattoos,) I absolutely love your musical note. It is stunning and special and — I’m not even one bit musical! May it be a song in your life & may it dance with your compass. Hugs, Kelly
Thank you so much! I really appreciate hearing from you and I’m glad you decided to stop over here 🙂

I came across your post on anhedonia — I just got into a relationship with a guy who has this. I would like to support him in any way and basically do whatever I can to be there for him. It gets a bit tough sometimes though because I’m still trying to understand him but I want to make this work. Would it be okay if I emailed you to talk more about it and get your advice?
Absolutely! I’m supersuper busy at the moment, so I might be a bit slow to respond, but I’d love to give you any insight I have.
thank you! 🙂
