My boring life

I saw my shrink today, as I have every month for…a long time. Now that I’m nearing the age of 28, not 18, and knock-on-wood, life is going along remarkably smoothly, we haven’t had much to talk about. Our last several monthly conversations have followed this progression, approximately: So, how is work? It’s…fine. You know, […]

If I ever have time for DIY again…

I wish I had more time, space, and money for projects. I enjoy my clean, mostly-organized apartment, with its clean carpets, I do miss my old garage and being able to play with paint, gesso, handsaws, a Dremel tool, heat gun, 2-part resin mixtures, mini blowtorch, glass cutter and soldering iron. I actually have a […]

Wants and Needs

Today, I found out about Food Gawker.com because of a Chicken Teriyaki recipe someone shared on Pinterest: I found the next […]

They deliver organic, locally-grown, seasonal produce to your doorstep (well, to the office in my case). Since I always need help eating healthfully, I figured this would probably be a good way to do it. Since […]

Necessary Evils

So, I know that we all whine about Facebook and the drama it can create. Remember when our real-time conversations didn’t include discussions about who posted what about who and what she said in her comment, or when so-and-so tagged so-and-so and in their picture at that bar? Amazingly, it wasn’t that long ago. But, […]

Haunted

Echoes of voices I haven’t heard in so long… I had hoped it wouldn’t get this far, but I can’t really say I didn’t know all along what to expect. I hate this part of it…I’m not used to it anymore. I’m not used to the endless rambling, the detachment that seems tangible even over […]
