  1. Therapeutic Rant

    • journal

    I went to a therapist once. She told me to write down my feelings, wants, and desires, but I never returned to give her my findings because my college only provided one free session. I also never wrote them down.

    Better time than any, I suppose.

  3. JM Shorts: That Year With Joe (A Three Part Novella)

    3 Part Novella.

    When you think about it, being in love is a horrible feeling if the person you're in love with does not feel the same back. In fact, I'd say being in love from one side only is the equivalent of mental torture. I'm Craig, and I wanna take you through parts of my year with Joe.

    This story begins with us and ends with me. It's about me, my feelings and that terrible pain of one sided love. I was 14, in the middle of puberty and all the fun that comes with that. It was also the time I think I could tell I liked boys. But of course, that had to be a secret, and Joe was my biggest secret of all.

    A chance collision at a Bakery. A scent that returns the powerful memory of a past encounter. A yearning for a face remembered. An obsession born. A Gipsy. A Handsome Gipsy.

    In this elder teen drama, Luke Hanson provides a touching yet sometimes lighthearted account of his mental health issues and experiences as a college dropout. Luke also shows us the often funny side of being on the cusp of manhood and all its emotions while on a Journey that suddenly diverges onto a single path. Overall this is a story about lost love, an unlikely reunion and the pounding beat of a yearning heart.

    Dear, Grocery Shoppers is a journal kept by Aaron Stone and his husband, Noah Fields. Here they speak about nuances, moments of self-reflection, and just silly experiences that these two men can't help but make fun of. No matter the cost to their morality and reputation, Aaron and Noah love to turn anything and everything into a laughable moment. As they work in common retail jobs, they are here to instruct the masses on proper store etiquette through comedy. There will be consumer stupidity, nonsense from co-workers, and, worst of all...Karens.

    The Sessions is a collection of transcripts containing the conversations and subsequent appointment notes between a Consulting psychiatrist and her new patient. As a transcript, the story is told entirely in dialogue and is set in a small, plainly decorated room. A teak coffee table separates Patient and Doctor. Although not seen, the Doctor will be taking notes throughout, and these can be read at the end of each visit.
    While some of the details within the transcripts may not be entirely medically accurate, I have drawn on my extensive experience of being the “patient” in therapy.

    Whether you follow war, like war, read about war or are interested in war it is sadly a fact of life, but can make fascinating reading. The war in Afghanistan is still in play even as I write this in 2021. The country has been through many wars but ‘Him in the dust’ is a point in history (2005-2006) where I decided to start the book that you will read.
