Saying things when I don’t really have anything to say.

That's pretty much blogging in a nutshell, right? Well, some people might take offense to that. But sometimes that's what blogging feels like to me. There were a few months there when I was really struggling to come up with anything to blog about, because I wasn't doing anything but working long hours and my life … Continue reading Saying things when I don’t really have anything to say.

Musical theater references, writing again, and dreaming about Björk.

Sunday, August 20th I found out why I haven't seen the dog poop while I've been here -- it's because he shat in the spare bedroom in the basement while I wasn't watching -- twice. Monday, August 21st There was a TOTAL.ECLIPSE.OF.THE.SUN. (That's a Little Shop of Horrors reference for all of the non-theater nerds.) For us here … Continue reading Musical theater references, writing again, and dreaming about Björk.

Resolutions in August?

I realize it has not been January for about 7 months, but I'm making some new resolutions anyway. Maybe it's because I still associate a new year with a new school year and August is when that happens, of course, but there's just something about Fall that feels like a new start. Here are the … Continue reading Resolutions in August?

A dog thinks I’m an alien and strangers say weird things to me.

Sunday, August 13th It's hard to work at a job you know you want to leave, but you just don't know the "when" of it all. Monday August 14th I got to skype my two best friends who live way too far away from me. Without the set structure that school gave us, it's harder … Continue reading A dog thinks I’m an alien and strangers say weird things to me.

Quick Thoughts: The Great American Eclipse

That's what the news was calling it -- The Great American Eclipse. As if this didn't happen before in 1979, or like it won't happen again in 2024. And, in fact, total solar eclipses happen all the time . . . they're just usually over the ocean, where no one can see. So the big deal about … Continue reading Quick Thoughts: The Great American Eclipse

Quick Thoughts: SUMMER SUCKS. Bring on Fall!!

Just bring me a pumpkin, a sweater, and a cinnamon spice candle . . . or something. Am I the only one who is completely over summer? I just bought like 5 sweaters and I can't wear any of them. It's bumming me out. It's not just about the pumpkin spice lattes either (WARNING: UNPOPULAR … Continue reading Quick Thoughts: SUMMER SUCKS. Bring on Fall!!

My Week: Books and music cushion the blow of customer service and existential crises.

This is a new kind of post (mostly for my own benefit). I usually don't journal about what I do day-to-day. I'm more of a write what you're feeling kind of person (gross, I know). So usually I forget what I've actually done. Maybe writing it all down will make me feel like I've done more … Continue reading My Week: Books and music cushion the blow of customer service and existential crises.

July 2017 Book of the Month: ONE MORE THING by B.J. Novak

I. loved. this. book. K bye. . . . . . . Just kidding. I'll review it I guess. Though I've noticed it's almost harder for me to talk about the books I absolutely loved than the ones that were horrible, or even just ok. So, in B.J. Novak's style, I'll keep it short and … Continue reading July 2017 Book of the Month: ONE MORE THING by B.J. Novak
