Mother of a 5-year-old boy residing in the PNW of Washington state. Transplanted from the smoggy heat and right-wing nightmare of the Southern Valley in California, she spends her time reading up on Inter-sectional Feminism, LGBTQ+ Issues, Mental Health Awareness, and Social Justice. She believes her job as a mother is to raise a socially conscious child in an often socially unconscious world.

By day she is an Accounting Manager, by night she is a mother, writer and vigilante of social justice. When she’s not doing the above, She likes her wine cheap and red while she binge-watches true crime docs on Netflix with her cat (Spock) and Boyfriend.

Julia was born in a small town, in a conservative area along the west coast. Let me set the stage for you: Imagine tractors on the road, wild mustard plants growing along the highway, and a lot of not so subtle misogyny, homophobia, and racism spewing out of the city council’s office. Do you know that feeling of being a square peg in a round hole? Constantly feeling too weird to even fit in with the weirdos? Julia does. She knows what it’s like to exist more inside her own head than in the real world.

In private Julia does a lot of brooding and crying. In public, she pretends to be fair and level-headed. Her personal motto is, “go cry in the bathroom.” She’s all about YOUR emotions and feelings. 10 /10 will hold your hand while you cry and would totally accompany you to grandma’s funeral, but she’s not gonna get vulnerable with you unless it’s in writing!

Julia is very passionate about not eating animals. Her long term goals are to write literary fiction and teach at a community college. She has a horrible habit of buying everything at her local Marshall’s because it’s a “bargain”.

June is that stereotypical mom who listens to books on tape while she drives around East coast suburbia with a passenger seat full of yarn, baked goods, and overdue library books. She goes to therapy once a week takes her prescribed medications on time each day, gets a manicure twice a month, and lives a relatively monotonous lifestyle that does not feel scary or overwhelming. June is happier that way.

When she isn’t kicking it old school at the concert venue she works at or nose deep in a pharmacology book, June can be found with her rockstar two-year-old daughter. They are easy to spot, as they’re almost ways wearing matching outfits. 2016 was hard on June, and right now, she’s just keeping it together and remembering the things she should be grateful for.

For your records: INFJ, Cancer, Slytherin.

Quinn (you can call me Khaleesi if you like ;] ) is constantly stumbling through life and winging it. Her mind can be summed up to be something like a fairy tale Disney movie with a dark Tim Burton twist.

Quinn lives in sunny San Diego with her two dogs, a bearded dragon, a snake, and her husband who is the reason she doesn’t spontaneously combust. They both came from Nevada but stayed in San Diego when her husband was stationed here while in the Navy.

She is an ambivert but is more introverted in her natural state (INFP). Quinn takes pride in being a Leo even though she doesn’t necessarily believe in horoscopes (probably just because her favorite Disney movie is the Lion King).

If she could, she would eat cocoa pebbles, pasta, and pizza for the rest of her life. You can find her daydreaming, watching cartoons, aimlessly doodling, playing video games, stargazing, and stressing out about the little things that don’t matter.

A Pennsylvania native, Lillian Isley’s most recent hobbit-hole hides in smoggy Southern California. She lives there with her very tall (and cute) husband and their two pets, a dog and a rabbit. When Lillian isn’t obsessively taking online quizzes or cleaning you can probably find her reading a library book, crying over TV shows, or sprinting down the street after Pokémon. She believes deeply in body positivity, feminism, the Loch Ness Monster, and fast food. Her poetry has been published by a handful of small presses and publishers. The children in her neighborhood think she might be a witch.

Lillian identifies as an angry bisexual. She was (clearly) sorted into House Gryffindor, and is (unsurprisingly) an ISFJ and a Virgo. She also battles depression and anxiety like a Viking shieldmaiden and wins more than half the time.

Described as a “slightly weird small” by her friend, Natalie is Southern California born and raised and plans to spend her entire life here because the west coast is the best coast.

She loves In-N-Out, her mom’s ceviche, pens, notebooks with nice paper, and lots of fictional boys. She can usually be found crying about said fictional boys or vomiting about the fact that she’s going to graduate college soon, or sitting in her corner, procrastinating on her next art project.

She also spends her time scowling at people on Facebook who continue to be racist, misogynistic, asshats with the occasional existential crisis in between.

Natalie is an INTJ, a proud Ravenclaw, and a Pisces who is constantly scowling at those “the horoscopes as” memes because just because Pisces is a water sign, does not mean they are everything that has to do with water.
