Take Off Your Cool

I dislike change. Even when it’s for the better. I’ve been going through a lot of growing pains and while I’m excited for what the future holds, I would be lying if I didn’t admit I was shit scared of the unknown. The biggest thing for me is: What do I love enough to sacrifice…

Forest Gump

Reading has always been like music to me. I could close my eyes and see the words hovering above me in the air…taking shape into the story,character’s laughter weaving spells around me, landscapes enveloping me…so it’s no surprise that I would use it the same way most people use music; to help process. There are…

Fauxtographer

        I forget that I own a good camera. The thing about it is, I don’t really know that much about it. I use mostly automatic settings. I am under no illusion that I’m a photographer. Good Camera = / = Photographer.       I originally wanted to take some photographs…

Going Under

What do you do when the darkness starts to take you? When the familiar temptation worms its way inside and makes itself at home with your worst fears….   It would be so easy to give in.    Isn’t resigning yourself to the darkness now…brave if you know that it’s coming  hunting you?   Is…

Do our writers owe us a happy ending?

The past few years brought the rise of trilogies and long series; with that came a new level of fandom that I never expected for readers and writers alike. Since these writers (example JK Rowling, Charlaine Harris and George R.R. Martin) are part of this social media / instant gratification age they’ve succumbed to all…

Cheers to wellness!

I’m finally feeling back to myself. I had a round of antibiotics and lots and lots of lozenges to get my through my throat infection. I’m no worse off for it; except I noticed my voice is more husky than before. I’ve made peace with having a more masculine voice so I won’t belabor the…

Hoddy Toddys, Home Remedies and needing your Mama

I’ve been sick for the past few days. To tell the story of my sickness I have to take you back in time. *Starts Fog Machine* Thousands of years ago…before Sigourney Weaver (Reference) When I was a kid, I had almost perfect health, that was until I started getting sore throats on a monthly basis….

Sadderday

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/saturday-night/ work throughout the weekends so Saturdays for me a weeknight as opposed to really feeling like the weekend. Unfortunately my friends with real careers and non-retail generally have the weekends off. (Who am I kidding, I don’t have friends) The issue is that most cool events, shows, kick-backs and most fun things happen generally…

Next Up

I can’t stop buying books. I’m no where near caught up on my reading but I couldn’t resist spending most of my lunch break at Strand Bookstore today.

Pump it up!

Today was the first time in close to two weeks that I felt in complete control of my body. Despite the cold and my weak immune system I managed to get close to what my daily walking distance today. On sick days I take more shortcuts and generally try to find food within a 1-2…
