#195; it’s friday and I’m in love with a comfy bed

I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve had one heck of a busy week. I intend to do little more than nap for the next two days. Perhaps waking up every so often to put in a new Gossip Girl DVD or change whatever Decemberists album I have running on my phone. I’m sure thisContinue reading “#195; it’s friday and I’m in love with a comfy bed”

#194; could use a little luck

I haven’t felt at all that lucky today. Work has been extremely stressful this week despite still being just under a month on the job. Politics have taken over my brain despite a year of practiced indifference. There is so much to do, so many people to see, so much city to learn, so many moving detailsContinue reading “#194; could use a little luck”

#191; a particular kind of pain

“There is a particular kind of pain, elation, loneliness, and terror involved in this kind of madness. When you’re high it’s tremendous. The ideas and feelings are fast and frequent like shooting stars….But, somewhere, this changes. The fast ideas are far too fast, and there are far too many; overwhelming confusion replaces clarity. Everything previouslyContinue reading “#191; a particular kind of pain”

#190; staying connected

 I spent the long weekend completely cut off from the world wide web. I checked out a live venue dive bar in my neighborhood (Great Scott, which I’m in lust with), spent an evening out with coworkers (two bachelorette parties at once, this involved bar hopping for five hours Downtown), caught up on my sleep, andContinue reading “#190; staying connected”
