“I only smile in the dark”

“I was doing so well until the rains came…” sounds more like the start of a Young Adult genre novel than a commentary on my current mood, but it’s true.

Climbing out of the abyss

I’m slowly coming out of a major funk, but I still think I’m a horrible person. It’s sometimes really difficult to reconcile those things.

day off: ain’t doin’ nuthin

Just three days after the 30th anniversary of Ferris Bueller’s actual day off, I had my own day off from work. I may have tied it to National Cancer Survivors Day, but it was really just a matter of having...

personal: my weird brain

We’re all slaves to it, but none of us can really explain why it does what it does… unless you’re a neuroscientist, in which case… wow. But just this past week, I was reminded yet again that my brain just...

wishes: Somewhere that’s green…

I absolutely hate moving, but while looking over a friend’s shoulder at craigslist apartment rental ads this weekend, I noticed the following house for rent that made me think, “Hm… maybe moving wouldn’t be so bad!” At $2,999, it’s a...

home: an insect of the family Cimicidae

So… yeah, I’ve got bedbugs. All those times hearing the rhyme, Sleep tight. Don’t let the bedbugs bite! and I thought it was just a cute thing to say at bedtime. Yeah… not. Even though this is just the latest...

moving: closet zero

Wow. As I said on brightkite, I honestly never thought I would get to this point. My closet–after coming out of it–ended up being a catch all for just about everything else that doesn’t normally see the light of day....

time: thirty-something

In roughly thirty-something days, I’ll be turning a new thirty-something of my own. Freakouts have already begun about this. You can’t help but evaluate your life, where you are, where you thought you’d be. I see myself as getting too...

in DC: desperately seeking an apartment

All good things come to an end, I suppose. After a nice 5 year or so run in my current apartment, all signs are pointing to my needing to find a new place to live. Considering that my lease becomes...

brain: …BOOM!

Any comic geek worth their salt* knows the events that lead up to this declaration and subsequent explosion. This is pretty much where I am right now at the office. I’ve been here before, but lately I’ve been moving well...

comics: focus on something happy

Hm… yeah. So how’s everyone else’s “holiday week” going? Today’s poll in Express was asking if people are getting any work done during these days, and since most people I chat with get this week off standard anyway, I’d have...

word of the day: spill

Setbacks, never a fun thing for me. Most of the time, I don’t even notice setbacks, I just push through. I only notice them when I’m at the end of my rope, resources depleted and it will really only take...

“I’m done with it.”

My very good friend James was out and about today and he swung past my office to bring me a box of Lindt chocolates. Said he, “You’ve been too down lately and I’m done with it.” I did have to...

A vacation about nothing!

I’m doing the unheard of… I’m taking time off from work. Not only that, but I’m taking it as a… stay-cation. I am horrible at planning getaways and doing research for travel and accommodations and knowing what’s a good deal...
