About DokiDara, Real Life

In September of 2015, I made the decision to quit my job and book a one-way flight to Cape Town, South Africa, without any real plans.   Well, realistically, I had decided in my head years before that I wanted to have a backpacking adventure, but lots of people say things like that to themselves […]

I’ve Got My Ticket For The Long Way Round…
About DokiDara, Real Life, Travel

OMG A BLOG POST! Starting this isn’t the easiest thing in the world… but I suppose that could be said for this entire venture that I’m about to disclose to you, so it’s rather appropriate in a meta sort of way… Since 2011, or maybe even before that, (I can say 2011 definitively because I […]

Getting Cashback With Ibotta
About DokiDara, Food, Real Life

I’ll preface this with the fact that I am in NO WAY an extreme couponer. I just like getting money back when I do things, and since my Sorority Sister had introduced me to Ebates, I’ve poked around for a few other ways to get cash back for things I already do. Once of the […]

Just a Little Thing Called a WFTDA Sanctioned Bout!!!!!!!!
About DokiDara, Derby

Transferring to a WFTDA team, especially one in Division 2, was one of the hardest decisions I’ve had to make in my derby career. This league is full of so many dedicated, hard working and talented skaters, any number of us could fill a roster of 14 on any given day. That’s why when the […]

About DokiDara, Real Life

I don’t know that I’ve ever blogged about my LARPing experience, but even if I have, Nekocon LARP 2014 is a spectacular reason to rehash. Why? Well, if for no other reason than one of my best humans, my human that at the ripe age of 12, we attended our first Con and LARP together. […]
