I took a few weeks off from GA. I don't know if anyone noticed or if I was missed, but just in case anyone was curious, here is why:
I get depression sometimes. It's usually seasonal, but sometimes it comes on for no reason at all and this time, it was bad.
I broke my foot. I am hobbling around in a boot right now, my coworkers and patients think its hilarious and it didn't do much to improve my mood. Also, it is very tiring to walk around 10 hours a day with what is basically an
Me: Okay. Gonna write.
Me: C'mon, I want to finish this. It's like two or three scenes, let's go.
Me: Okay, what about this story?
Brain: Nope, not feeling it.
Me: Well, let's work on this story. Or this one.
Brain: Nope. Fuck off.
Me: *fumes all day long*
An hour before I have to go to bed:
Brain: Hey, let's writ
It's starting again.
I talked to my cousin over the weekend about what my Dad has been going through. And how my Dad is courting sobriety again. For the record, the longest my Dad has been sober has been two years, and that was when I was a child and my Mom threatened to leave him and take myself and sister with her. He threw out all the alcohol in the house.
Another time was when I was living in Atlanta, out of college and working at a bo
For those who noticed my status update, my Dad was jailed over the weekend for driving under the influence. He had gone out of town for a golfing trip and this happened. I don't know the details and I'm not sure I want to.
Also, my aunt has an aggressive cancer that may be incurable. We are waiting to hear on that as well.
So, things are not great.
I have decided to write a few stories that cheer me up, and usually make me laugh or smile when I tell them.
I am the type of person who likes documenting my life sometimes, so here is a blog post.
I realized that it has been over a year since I posted a story. But this year, two things happened that I am hopeful will get some new work up.
Firstly, I realized that Adderall was completely fucking up my life. I did really well at work (I had the highest productivity back in 2014 and was second highest last year) but outside of work, I was completely miserable. I couldn't sleep well, I could
Hey everyone. I notice that are a lot of new names floating around the site, so if you are one of those, hello. In case a few people were wondering what had become of me, I decided to update this blog. I am still alive, but life has become interesting, as it tends to do sometimes. Firstly, I was called for jury duty for the entire month of July. THAT was fun. Secondly, as I am the most senior employee in my company after my boss, I was basically running an understaffed clinic with untrai
I was going to just do a status update, but it was getting a little long for that, so I decided to do a blog entry instead.
I kinda hate myself for doing this, but I finally went home and left my Mom at the ER with my dad and sister. I didn't want to leave, but my Mom was worried about me being able to drive home safely (I work 10 hours shifts and by the time I get off of work, I am exhausted). So after the fifth or so request for me to go home and get some rest, I went.
I am getting
I have no idea what she was thinking. I came home from work Friday evening, and found my sister and my cousin crouched on the kitchen floor, peering into a plastic tub and grinning like fools. They had gone out and confiscated three baby kittens that had been taking refuge in the bushes of our yard.
My sister claims that they were abandoned, but I seriously doubt that, as they are not malnourished or seem like they haven't had adequate care from Mommy, but since they have been taken from
I am no good at blogging. However, the DC trip was amazing. It was the happiest I have been since the fire. And because I enjoyed it so much, I wrote down everything I could remember and listed it here. It's pretty incoherent and won't make much sense to someone who wasn't there, but I am writing it anyway, for myself more than anything. But if you see something and are curious, feel free to ask me and I'll (try to) explain it.
So this is what a train is li
