Archives

The posts on this page are the contents of the prior version of Project TMI, founded in 2012, on my thirtieth birthday, and spanning about eight years, until the mid-2020s, when the blog was hacked by POS.

He didn’t win, because here they are – more organized, even, than they ever were before.

I have preserved them, some in their original format, some slightly altered, and hosted on a separate site. Use the links below to navigate to the posts. To return to this page, use the link at the top of the post to come back to this main site.

A sub-series, sprinkled throughout this section, called “Filling in the Blanks” is designed to add depth to the events that happened in 2020. They help explain what I was living in as events in those final posts approached, what I was up against, and, hopefully, can shed some light on why I didn’t leave the POS relationship as early as I should have. I could have added many more of those posts, because the events I relay in those articles do not even begin to encompass the trauma I experienced from late 2014 – 2020, but I tried to limit this account to the heavier, larger things in order to prevent the Archives from becoming a series of flashbacks, written from the present. My thirty-something-year-old self still deserves to keep her voice (even if, in some places, it was extremely misguided.)

So without further ado… I give to you… The Archives.
