Correlating Change

I recently realized that some of the feedback I’ve gotten (repeatedly) on Sickybeat is seriously bothering me. So much so that I have not stopped thinking about it since the last time my “Reader Zero” repeated it. I was stewing over the fact that this feedback was more based on her stylistic preference, which IContinue reading “Correlating Change”

Be patient, or Just Don’t Curse on Camera

Monday was my LSAT and, even with a persistent light headache, I was happy. At least I was functional and not fog-brained! The exam wasn’t without surprises.

I was afraid of what you readers would do. In the name of what I have, and thus, who youContinue reading “Unexpected Bitter Appreciation”

Toppled Tables

Someone in my family suffers from Borderline Personality disorder. Most of us have distanced ourselves to a degree in order to keep our lives moving forward.

When You Just Can’t Win, and the only quitting allowed, is tantrums

Everyone who reads this blog knows i have many health issues. For over two weeks I had severe joint and muscle pain in my leg. Sleeping hurt when I could manage to drift off, I would wake up by 2:30am. That combined with my low energy normal and I was running on empty.
