Hit it, Daniel Powter.

I had a bad day. It’s amazing how unproductive I can be when I’m really unhappy.
The skies opened up and wept with me today. Rain, rain, rain. Darkness too. I felt pathetic and well, I wrote a little story in my head (um, and I guess here, now) and the pathetic fallacy crept in. […]

No Time and Forever

It’s a bloody good thing that I didn’t sign up for NaBloPoMo because I’d be dead by now. Post or die, they say? Bang bang, he shot me down. Bang bang, I hit the ground.
I’d like to say that I’m in full hermit mode, but I’m not quite there yet. I’ve been wanting to set […]

Awful Offal?

Two posts in a day! So close together! ‘Twas fun telling my consumption tales. Much more fun than complaining about the fact that Dave’s luggage has likely been lost for good thanks to bumbling airline employees dotted all around the world! Ten days worth of his favourite clothes etc. and a borrowed Jack […]

Lemme see…so this past weekend I thought a lot about blogging, but that last entry really did me in! Apparently it did you guys in too ‘cuz not too many of you made it to the finish. Thank goodness for pictures, right?
Other than sitting on my fat ass contemplating the many things […]

A Moment of Silence

I am rarely at a loss for words. Now, the words are refusing to come out–choking me–as I try to cope. I am sick of gasping for air. I have to let my fingers do the talking.
My maternal grandfather — 公 公 (gung gung) as I knew him–was a man of few words so […]

Work in Progress

Days have been blurring into weeks. We’re into June now. A whole new month is before us. Fresh. And squishy.
I’m actually feeling a bit squishy; and I’m not just talking about the perpetual pudge ‘round the waist. It’s not a blah, blobby feeling. No random floating around. I’ve actually been moving in a very focused […]

Baby Steps

I’m so confused. I’ve spent all this time agonizing over 10,000 words on something important. Something I supposedly believe in. It’s over, but I’m not satisfied.
I signed on for 7 years (and maybe more) of continuous post-secondary education so that I could do something meaningful with my life. No doubt, I’ve found meaning in the […]

I know it would have been a totally risky thing to do, but I kind of wish that I had booked a trip to Boston before exams. Easter weekend with the biggest prize of all–the Davetron.
But who am I kidding? I’ve barely started this massive, complicated essay that makes my head hurt. I’ve got to […]

Move over, Murphy.

Everything that could possibly have gone wrong today went wrong; but I didn’t cry once! Go me! I am a total rockstar!
Okay, so I did whine a little. Just a little! Don’t get me wrong. I am no fragile flower, but you’d think that while waiting for my uterine lining to escape (now that’s […]

Ebb and Flow

I tell you that I am strong. I think that it is true, but it still takes work. You have to build strength.
I long for congruence. I want to speak and do what I feel, think and believe. It’s not easy; but I really am trying hard. Am I trying my best, though? Maybe […]
