If it weren't for words, how many wars, ranging from spats between neighbors to global entanglements, could be avoided?
Metaphor of the day: fitness. I did some math and for the past two (business, because nobody's open on the weekend) weeks, I've been on the phone for an average of 40 minutes a day trying to get that damn medicine I spoke of in my last post. Probably longer since I'm not including the … Continue reading Realizing just how out of shape you are
The medication that's taken 6 months of discipline and lifestyle changes to get me to where I've been, suddenly isn't available.
Now, moments of clarity when I started to understand a bit more about the housing crisis. Mood: ominous clouds on a highway. I watched The Big Short last night, on Thanksgiving ironically enough. Why ironic? Well, if you haven't seen the movie (which is also morbidly humorous), it's about the housing crisis. You know, that period … Continue reading Takeaways from the Great Recession
I'm deciding what to do with this space. Because right now it's just a mish-mosh. Kind of like my life. Feels like it's on the verge of changing, but not quite there. I've been throwing myself in a number of directions, hoping something sticks. It feels inauthentic to be casually re-posting articles I write for … Continue reading Hello .blog
Seeing as I now write for The Mighty and The Odyssey in addition to this quiet corner of mine, I'll probably be cross-sharing more. Hopefully it's not seen as laziness; if I write something, I now have three disjointed arenas I'm considering, and I'd like to try and have all my original work at a … Continue reading When Post-Grad Isn’t What You Pictured
I was here. Probably sweating, possibly tipsy, and definitely screaming with everyone else each time we (frequently) screwed up a play, handed our opponent a gentle first down, or left every door in the house open for the other team to rush 70 yd to a touchdown right in front of the student section (how's … Continue reading Three years ago today..
Once upon a time, I had a blog over on blogspot. I think I started this one just after I had began high school, and I'm now so glad I didn't delete all my ramblings when I abandoned it sometime in 2011. They give me a lot of insight to myself, and I find them … Continue reading From the archives: Peanut
Doom and gloom seems to be the recent theme, so here is some sass that I wrote for my latest post on the Mighty: How do you feel about disabilities? Because I have one. Whether seeking employment or a date, if you have an illness, condition, or disability, there’s always the question of when you should “disclose” … Continue reading Some sass about disability
I have about 10 different drafts that I've tried flushing out over the past month. Each time, I come back to the confusion in my life. Have you ever had one of those moments where, as time slows down and pauses around you, you're watching what's happening instead of experiencing it? And as you're watching … Continue reading Growth is pain and confusion.
