Well, Summer is coming to a close, at least it should be, but I’m still laid off. The worst bit of being laid off is the fear that the human resources department has the wrong phone number for me. That’s a silly thing to worry about, but it’s there. Everyone tells me I’ll most likely […]
Heyo. Next Tuesday I start school again! I’m getting my masters in Science Education, a bold move since I don’t currently have A job. But, whatevs. Science is cool. Lately, I’ve been kind of bored with reading. There’s books I’ve been burning through like a madman, but I’ve been having a hard time staying engaged […]
Wind zips past wheels wizz (such unfortunate terminology – is there not a better sound for tires than a synonym for urinating) Trees scrape the helmet.
It’s allergy season. I’m suffering. Are you suffering? I am. My eyes, nose, throat – it’s all blowing up! Why on earth do we have allergies? This is a question I ask. They make little sense at all. Allergies are pointless and I’m sick of having them.
Cynicism runs rampant, my friends. Too many people I talk to (people younger than me!) complain that things aren’t “like they used to be!” Well, some of that is good and some of that is bad. Things certainly aren’t like they used to be. For example, I don’t have to be terrified Zachary is going […]
I am supposed to write a poem. Here is my poem. A POEM We were promised peace as a wall came down And our hopes evaporated as walls fell Because a hornet’s nest was kicked We were promised in our youth a shiny world We were promised life would be “post-” (but it isn’t) And […]
Here is a list that I wrote. THINGS I HATE TO READ IN BLOGS. 1) “Hello. I have been missing and have not updated in a while.” This is obnoxious and self-pitying. No one cares. I don’t even care when I do this – I space out and all of sudden the blog is updated […]
This will be the final post of this blog. It will sit here until entropy arrives to disassemble its ones and zeros and vanish them into the ether. I write this as the great-great grandson of Matthew Abel and his mind has finally left us. Some called him a hero, others a villain, but to […]
Confession time. There’s been a love affair I’ve been a part of for many, many years. No need for worry. Sam has been well aware of it throughout its entirety. She had little choice as it started before we met. Pie. God help me, I love pie. There are very few pies I will refuse […]
It’s that time of year again. The time is rarely scheduled and honestly happens every few months, but I am learning Spanish again. Spanish is a language I’ve been trying to learn for six years and I am terrible at it mainly because I don’t apply myself. There’s little extra income for formal lessons (I’m […]
