Ways I'm Preparing Myself For The Possibility of...
Letting people cut me in line for the water fountain (Karma boost, right?). Making myself not reschedule an upcoming essay in case this lasts forever. Ignoring my to do list because I just don’t want to know. Napping. At. All. Times. Obsessively wondering if I have a sore throat or just swollen lymph nodes. The fetal position.
How To Start Your Week
Wake up to the sound of a snow plow aggressively plowing my street. Realize it’s snowing AGAIN and wonder how I’ll ever survive until Spring. Note optimistically that it is looking much lighter out; usually when I wake up it’s still mostly dark. Wait, why is it so light out? What time is… IT IS 7:16 I HAVE CLASS AT 7:30 WHY DIDN’T MY ALARMS GO OFF SO I COULD...
Of Natural Disasters and Love
I haven’t the right to record what I haven’t lived through I can only write what I know—and how empty is that and who cares I am capturing the essence of what I love through—everyday the wonder of another breath seems like a new beginning and here at the gathering of reader, writer and page—I am made aware that there is no matter when what’s outside...

What is "ignosticism"? →
everythinginthesky: fuckyeahexistentialism: Ignosticism, or igtheism, is the theological position that every other theological position (including agnosticism) assumes too much about the concept of God and many other theological concepts. The word “ignosticism” was coined by Sherwin Wine, a rabbi and a founding figure in Humanistic Judaism. It can be defined as encompassing two related views...

I Shared My Google Calendar with My Boyfriend
Him: “This is the modern key-to-my-place exchange.”
I haven’t decided how I want to handle my web presence in the context of my writing career just yet. Suggestions would be encouraged, of course. I might put a few more plugs on the Tumblr, but in the interest of being interesting (and I have no other interests), I’m thinking I’ll mainly do self-promo links on my newish Big Girl Blog, Billboard Jingo. My longer writings and links...
I Now Write On the Internet.
So for whatever reason I have decided to use my $50,000/yr. education to be a poor freelance writer with no health insurance or job security. Cool. This week marked my entrance into those sad, early phases where I take bylines wherever I can get them in attempts to build up my portfolio. Fortunately, I’ve been lucky enough to be picked up by The Daily Brink, which profiles assorted...
I have 666 friends on Facebook.
This is after one person who I accepted as a friend on Facebook—before I realized he is a psychopathic rage-machine—de-friended me when he learned that I refused to live in the same house as him. *Twilight Theme* EDIT: ZONE, Oh God, I meant the Twilight ZONE theme, not the Twilight Zone theme and ashgfdksg now I’ll never win the Twilight Zone Pinball Game. =[
Well this semester descended into absurdity and chaos rather quickly.
