Hi! I’m Mad Like Alyce.

Welcome to my little corner of the web, where I share my latest music finds, endless list of projects, and about aspiring to live a happier and healthier life while living with PTSD and chronic pain. There is so much life to live, and this is my journey to finding myself after a long journey of healing. Walk with me.

The Less Abbreviated Version

I work as a project manager in online marketing, but have done a lot of soul searching and realized that neither my diagnosis nor my job define who I am. I like to consider myself to be a writer, and while someday I hope to write a fully fledged novel, this blog has really revitalized a creative side of me that I had not been able to fully exercise in years, and by immersing myself in the blog, I feel that I have become more centered… really starting to find comfort in who I am.

While you can define yourself as a lot of different things, (writer, project manager, etc.) I really consider myself a project person… perhaps why both my job and this blog appeal to me. My job allows my introverted analytical side to thrive, while my blog lets me express my creativity (or so I think!). But give me a project, and I will dive in head first… I always have at least 5 active projects in different levels of completion.

So what am I interested in? I am a huge Pit Bull lover, and have a 7 year old pittie named Mystic. I love reading, and have read the Harry Potter series from cover to cover more times than I can count. I’m also a fan of the “Zombie Culture” and love having discussions of post-apocalyptic survival tactics. Along with that, I am a HUGE fan of Halloween! It is the best holiday ever, and allows me to challenge myself by making elaborate costumes.

I live with my boyfriend, who is Bosnian, and thus I enjoy trying to make traditional Bosnian meals, as well as baking pretty much anything! I’m also getting back on a health kick, and am really working on taking a healthier look at who I am, not just being physically healthy.

As for my next project? Who knows? All I know as I can’t wait.

  1. Hey there!

    We met when you were getting your fabric cut at Joann. Just wanted to let you know I’m loving your blog. 🙂

    Also giving you the link to my website….which hasn’t been touched in a while. You inspired me to get back into a routine. So, thank you for that.

    Stay Positive,

Hello!

Hi! I'm Alyce.
Welcome to my journey towards living a happier and healthier life while living with PTSD and chronic pain... and never letting it keep me from my passion for Halloween, cooking, and way too many DIY projects... all at the same time!

  • Happy Birthday Harry, it's time to party like it's 1999! In 99, I was a 10 year old reading the first two Harry Potter books, and waiting for the third (and my favorite) Prizoner of Azkaban to be released in the fall. I eagerly awaited my 11th birthday, and convinced myself when I didn't get my owl that US wizard schools must wait until you are 12. #everydayimmugglin.
Which book is your favorite? And which house are you in? Where my Gryffindor's at?!?!? #harrypotter #potterhead #gryffindor #hogwarts #stillwaitingformyowl
  • Happy Birthday to J.K. Rowling and Harry Potter! Thank you for showing me that for a writer, magic truly exists.

  • "Jumpsuit jumpsuit, cover me."
Im mildly obsessed with the new TOP single, and actually have a cosplay in the works based off of the music video. Question to you guys, would you be interested in seeing progress pics for some of my work? I feel like I don't focus on one thing long enough, and by the time it hits the blog, its been ages! Let me know in the comments!

  • "Time to wake up." I have probably listened to the new TOP song over 100 (200? 100? Who's counting?) times by now. October 5 cannot get here fast enough! I wanted to pull something fast and simple together. #twentyonepilots #TOP #skeletonclique #losingmyfreakingmind #isitoctoberyet #jumpsuit #trench

The whole look was done with #mehron body paint. This wig also has me feeling my emo high school days... wig from Rockstar Wigs, but i'm not sure exactly which style it is.
  • "We've been here the whole time. You were asleep." No better way to jump back in to some makeup looks than being inspired by one of my all time favorite bands. Who else has "Jumpsuit" on repeat?

  • "Sometimes, you just want things to stay the way they are forever. But you can’t. And they won’t." - Girl in Space

Because i'm trying this thing where I post each look in 3's to keep my Insta page even, and I seriously can't express how hauntingly gorgeous the intros are for each Girl in Space episode. I'm re-listening to the episodes now, and I so excited for 109 since I have NO CLUE what is going to happen! Also, after a few weeks without looking at them, this is one of my favorite pictures, and I can't believe I didn't post it first!
  • "Yeah, I’m glad I’m back, too." Episode 108 of the @girlinspacepodcast  left me with SO MANY QUESTIONS!!! Is Kai alive? Where the heck is Thor? Who is the "lion's paw?" But the biggest unknown is just how important the dwarf star "Ra" is likely to become in the plot of 109... and is why Ra is included in my makeup! The warm glowing orb on my eye is in reference to my suspicions that Ra will soon become a much more relevant part of the Girl in Space plot very soon. #girlinspace #findme #nomurdering #savekillbot #prayforkai
  • Galaxy in action! Quick peek at the movement of the makeup before I put on my wig, which covered a lot of the detail. Gotta love that "sunshine" glare on the shiny black surface! I bought a finishing powder this week to hopefully counteract this in the future. Or just back away from the light.... :P
  • Disappearing into the music...
I was really digging my latest playlist when I started my galaxy makeup last weekend, so I started blacking out everything besides my face to procrastinate taking off my headphones. I took this photo halfway through to see how well I would blend into my background, and kind of liked how this "progress" shot turned out. Funny thing was, this was the last pic where I had a true infinite background, my camera (phone) couldn't quite hang once I was fully blacked out. Time to consider a real camera?
