Yeah, I know, isn't it a crying shame? I suppose that's what you all figured would happen but no, that was a joke. What follows is some rambling updates about what I’ve been up. It’s barely edited but at least ChatGDP or whatever didn’t write it. Our wedding day was really meaningful and better than … Continue reading Been married a month and already moved back in with my parents.
It’s been a minute (random craps #785)
You know what your brain looks like on drugs. This is what your heart looks like on work: My FitBit is so proud of how I do forty-five minutes of exercise a day. Too bad it's just my heart racing. The orange peak is how I start my work day. I didn't realize I barely … Continue reading It’s been a minute (random craps #785)
What is there to say?
As I alluded to in my last post, I've got a lot of stuff on my mind. Dad is not feeling well, fiance is experiencing major disappointment at work, wedding planning is completely undermined by everyone else, work is work, sister & co are increasingly trying to estrange themselves for zero reason, and other assorted … Continue reading What is there to say?
And now for something REALLY different.
No, seriously. Blogger Jewish Young Professional (not a dating site) has issued the Anti-Self-Deprecation Challenge, and I thought, why not rise to the occasion? On the other hand, she has issued this challenge previously, so it's taken a year or more for me to think of something. Y'all know it's hard for me to say … Continue reading And now for something REALLY different.
Overused phrases at work I don’t like.
I had no supervision today, and instead of working hard, I made a short list of phrases I hear people at work say all the time. A few of these are pretty universal, others are endemic to my workplace. "In full transparency." As anyone who has ever held a job might expect, this phrase spoken … Continue reading Overused phrases at work I don’t like.
Guys, make me feel better.
I generally don't talk about my family or loved ones out of respect for them because they don't know about this blog or aren't allowed to read it if they do. So I'll be as vague as I can, though I must add some details. I know estrangements happen in every family. My sister and … Continue reading Guys, make me feel better.
Love hurts, oh yes it does.
Love hurts, that's what everyone says. And it's true, love and loss never seem to be otherwise than intertwined. Even the most beautiful beginnings contain the seeds of loss. Hold on to beautiful moments, hold them in your mind like precious photographs that you have no other copy or negative of. Don't feel too bad … Continue reading Love hurts, oh yes it does.
Meanwhile, at the ant farm…
UPDATE: I totally forgot this part but it perfectly illustrates how the boss thinks of the associates. Let's say she doesn't like "John" (because John probably is over fifty-five and keeps his head down because he's, you know, working). She'll refer to all associates she doesn't like collectively as "the Johns." Isn't that nice? Many … Continue reading Meanwhile, at the ant farm…
Friends Forever #SOCS
“OMG! Look! It has its own little stuffed animal! It’s all ready for bed and it has its own stuffed animal!” I squealed in the middle of Barnes & Noble. Today’s “Saturday Stream of Consciousness" prompt (by Linda G. Hill) is to describe something you own over a hundred of. So what else for me … Continue reading Friends Forever #SOCS
As P!nk aptly put it… Don’t let me get me
Guilt. Ineptitude. Stupidity. Immorality. Shame. Imposture. These aren’t really all that different when you think about it, right? Just the variety of tactics that the one and the same inner critic uses to help us destroy ourselves. Scratch that: “critic” is too nice of a word. “Monster” or “demon” is more like it. Who knows … Continue reading As P!nk aptly put it… Don’t let me get me
The Journey Begins
This is my first blog post and my official warm welcome to you. I left the heading as the generic WordPress title because, why not? It's good enough, I guess. In this blog, you will find some boring thoughts about life, generally focused around mental health and writing, with a little angst thrown in. I'm … Continue reading The Journey Begins
