Forget Me in The Headlines is an expression of sadness by the continuous loss of life, especially amongst people of color, and the lack of fair media coverage.
Hello, gentlepeople! My name is Tiara (She/They/Pronoun fluid). I am a social worker, introvert, writer, and fellow awkward human being. I started my blog, Muted Mouthful, in 2018 as a hobby to help me untangle some of life's messiness. I have always felt out of place and misunderstood. My mind is loud, but my voice is quiet, and I needed a safe space to unload. Muted Mouthful is an extension of myself. It allows me to communicate my feelings, thoughts, and questions without judgment. As a Black, Puerto Rican, queer and non-binary person, my perspective and lived experiences are "supposed" to stay suppressed. My blog tells my story through personal essays, creative writing, and random shenanigans.
Do you lie awake at night and think about the things you could have or should have said but didn’t? I do. Constantly. Here is my list.
A little reminder that we’re all different and do not need to fit a mold. Sometimes it’s tough to reconcile with, but I wouldn’t want you any other way.
Are you ready for the holidays? I’m not! However, participating in a fun holiday-themed blog tag may do the trick.
The holiday season, defined by the sudden shift in cheer, bright lights, parties, and crowds, so many things introverts try to avoid. Our friend, Jonhzelle Anderson, shares tips and tricks for surviving the holidays.
An anniversary only comes once a year, the love of your life is waiting; the candles, the view, everything MUST be perfect.

There is so much tragedy in the world; it’s hard to feel like there’s any good. 2016 was an insane year for my family; the holiday season hasn’t been the same. This year I am choosing to focus on being thankful for everything I have.
Write out the alphabet in a list, then go through and think of a word beginning with each letter to describe a positive trait you have. You can get as creative as you want with the challenge (crack out those dictionaries for X!) but there must be absolutely no self-criticism or self-deprecation! Positive vibes only!
Love is weird. I don’t need to say more than that. But when you find someone or someone(s), it can be the start of an amazing adventure.
There is a common misconception that being an introvert means you must have some form of social anxiety; the two terms are not interchangeable nor mutually exclusive. Introversion and social anxiety share some commonalities, but they do not necessarily go hand-in-hand.
I thought it would be nice to share my experience as an introvert with social anxiety would help differentiate the two.
