I know I've been absent for quite some time, with and without reason. There have been so many times I've wished to come to my computer and sit down to write something that might mean something to someone somewhere maybe, but whenever I would do so, words failed. Actually, until recently, I felt creatively blocked … Continue reading Hi. Hey. How are ya.
I did it. I moved out of my parents' house. The trouble is, I am currently jobless and have put an entire state between me and my family. Everything is still too fresh to definitively determine whether or not it was the biggest mistake of my life, but now is the time to crack down, … Continue reading Moving Out.
It's hard to create something that no one reads/watches/sees/listens to. It's hard to put something out into the world in general, but even harder when there's no one there on the other side. It feels isolating. In my case, it makes me not want to write -- to not even do the thing that I … Continue reading A Note on Failure.
[I already know this post is going to MONSTROUS, so it's coming at you in parts. It is also very late. But here's part one.] Welcome, family and friends who are reading this as well random strangers who just happened to stumble upon this blog. For those of you who don't know, I spent a … Continue reading I can’t come up with a clever name for this Iceland travel blog. (Part One).
This post is purely self-serving. I needed a place to record all my good dog names so that I don't forget them all by the time I actually get a dog (which unfortunately might not be for a long time). And since there's no such thing as a dog baby name book ---- (but, WAIT, is there? … Continue reading Potential Names for My Future Dog
Sunday, August 27th Forcing oneself to take naps in the afternoon when one is not really that tired to prepare oneself for an overnight shift at work that night will probably result in poor sleep. Monday, August 28th Likewise, sleeping until 1pm the day after working an overnight shift will probably result in a poor … Continue reading My Week: Lack of Sleep and Bad Moods – Correlation or Causation?
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.
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.
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?
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.
