Now, I'm supposed to be on a break but I have to share this with you because it's just too funny. During my check-in with my supervisor, she asked me what she could do to help me further my career goals. We are on very friendly terms and have a good rapport, so it's a … Continue reading Aaahahahahahahahaha
I decided that I've got to take a bit of a hiatus from here. It's not because of my job--despite making less money than if I were to volunteer, my job is fairly decent right now. I would never allow my job the satisfaction of getting in the way of my blog. I just can't … Continue reading Need to take a break.
Yes, friends, on this very day the micropimple blog known as "Who the Hell Knows?" turns two years old. I try to avoid looking at my actual blog as much as possible so I'm not actually certain whether the title has a "?" or not at the end. Let me know. (Apparently it does have … Continue reading “Who the Hell Knows?” turns 2
I wanted to say something profound about the past year, about all my accomplishments and wisdom; or, more characteristically of me, about all my miseries and failures; but really I can barely remember the year. I had Covid and wrote some stories. Tonight I just want to close the book softly and lay it aside … Continue reading Goodbye 2021…
Warning: Diary dump.... scroll away as fast as you can. For some reason I can't get the emotional energy up to finish writing the five or six things I started in the past week. A friend dilemma, issues with my parents, life changes, stories... It's too heavy and I can't make the effort. It's the … Continue reading Random crap so I can say I blogged something.
Something that came up in a recent comment section got me thinking about how much we show of ourselves on our blogs. I try to be honest about what I'm feeling because I blog for personal enjoyment and socializing. All of us only reveal a slice of who we are which we gradually shape into … Continue reading “Who” the hell knows
My plan was simple. Record my dreams, increase recall, achieve lucid dreaming. Well, it has been a colossal failure. It worked in the sense that I remember my dreams. It’s just that they’re shitter than ever and all sorts of people I don’t like keep showing their faces and…. bothering me. Oh, I won’t even … Continue reading It was a mistake to even try to remember them.
Just some low-key whining.. no energy for heavy stuff. I woke up this morning, soaked in sweat, and I knew something was missing, but I still don’t know what. I don’t even know if what’s missing is a good thing or a bad thing. What I suspect, though, is a missing link, a link that … Continue reading Two weeks in…something’s missing?
I figured that since I only managed one post this month, I ought to at least try to squeeze one out at the last minute so I can say I wrote two. I started this blog last January to begin something new in my life at a time when I was completely hopeless. I dug … Continue reading Happy New Year and a fond farewell to 2020.
One thing I struggle with, when writing a character, is what I call "headspace," meaning someone's view of the world as molded by their era, upbringing, and milieu. Writing something contemporary is difficult for me because I'm just not up to speed with all the crap people do nowadays. My life does not revolve around … Continue reading Writers, I need your help with character headspace

What genre is your favorite? … Continue reading An undeserved recognition: Vincent Ehindero Award
I made the mistake of reading advice about writing, about embarrassing pitfalls and newbie blunders, and worst of all, about who has talent and who doesn’t. I now have an enormous writer’s boulder and can’t even bear to write my name, let alone stomach anything else my pen might sully. First, buyer beware. All I … Continue reading Advice regarding writer’s block from a writer’s blockhead.
