Kyle has skipped off to rehearsal for the evening, and I'm settled into bed, surrounded by paper. I've got my journal, tomorrow's to-do list, two books I'm in the middle of reading, two letters from penpals and the accompanying stationery to return the correspondences. But before I jump into that epic pile I have no … Continue reading Waxing reckless
The work on "Ghost Stories" has begun. Step one: unshare them with everyone I shared them with in Google Drive. A lot of these were written for a class, and I don't think they need to be in my professor's hands anymore. I got my grade; now they're mine. The next step will be to … Continue reading Grace and Space
Being in a period of mourning is a strange thing. Late last week, I was waiting in a coffee shop for a friend and took the space in my day to read through various short stories and scripts I've written over the last few years. There are considerably more than I thought, and being so … Continue reading Ghost Stories for the Brokenhearted
So, what would an angel say? The devil wants to know...-Fiona Apple In psychology, a shadow self is everything about you that you don't want to, or can't, acknowledge. The human ability to compartmentalize for the sake of self-preservation is astonishing--it hurts really badly to own up to your mistakes and/or shortcomings, so to make … Continue reading Shadowboxer, baby
There's no clear place to start telling the story of my whereabouts over the last few months. I know that I did everything "right." I followed "the rules" and I went through the "proper channels" and I still find myself laying awake at night wondering what the hell just happened to me. I pride myself … Continue reading Sudden death
Well, it certainly has been a while, hasn't it? Life has been more than a little exciting around Casa del Thomas, but rather than try to recap everything, I'm just going to jump in with the spring news. A few weeks ago, I was asked to help out with my beloved theater club, Stark Stage, … Continue reading Triumphant returns!
The sun isn't even up yet, and I've been awake for almost three hours. It was bugging me that I didn't have a blog post ready to go for this morning, and my brain wasn't going to let me sleep until I had something ready to offer the masses. So, I got out of bed, … Continue reading Deadlines to make
Since the dawn of time (I suppose) women have been putting concoctions of goop on their faces in efforts to look younger, combat wrinkles, kill slugs, and shrink pores. The only thing that has been guaranteed throughout the ages is that, well, none of it works. This is, of course, evidenced by the ridiculous amount … Continue reading Pixi Dust
You may have noticed that I skipped a scheduled post. As it was Martin Luther King, Jr Day, I knew there wasn't a lot worth saying compared to his message. If anyone should be listened to or read on this day, it's definitely Dr. King, himself. If you've never heard the entire "I have a … Continue reading Skifahren? In Schferin?
The last quarter of the year brought us expenditures we didn't account for in our budget. For example, after several days in the hospital, our elderly kitty, Biscotti, was diagnosed with diabetes and pancreatitis. On top of that astronomical emergency vet bill, we also had the added bill of a special food for her, as … Continue reading Oh, Jeorphy Sturr, noooo
