I fell in love with The Hunger Games trilogy!!! I began reading the first book, I don’t know maybe two weeks ago and I just began the third one Friday. Honestly between these three books, and The Alchemist which I read a few months back, this is the most reading I’ve done in years….. pretty damn sad. I must say that I’m happy to be back in the swing of things. I was a nerd until I’d safely say at least my sophomore year of high school. Ok maybe second semester of freshman year…. I was baggin numbers so I couldn’t have been that wack lol. Anyway, back in elementary school, I used to go APESHIT for the scholastic book fair. Maaaaaaan listen. There was nothing better in the world than books to me. I read and wrote tons of short stories. My world was full of words. The more they assigned reading in school, however, the less time I had to read for leisure, so the older I got, the less I read. As I was initially sayin though, The Hunger Games…..Read More»
Ok so I’m at work, working on a post and my coworker calls my attention. He has the most adorable kids and they’re in the office with him today. His son, his youngest, is four. My coworker calls to me and tells me to ask his son who his favorite boxer is. I oblige. The kid does the shy “I don’t know…” response and I’m beginning to wonder why he bothered to bring up the topic of discussion. Finally he coaches the kid to say along with him “Muhammad Ali!” Cool story bro. So I ask his son why he is his favorite. Again my coworker coaches and ultimately ends up saying “Because he’s the greatest of all time!” Again I say (still in my head of course), “Cool story bro.” Why the fuck are we discussing this?Read More»
As is generally preferred, I’m going to start at the beginning.
I’ve been with this one guy on and off since maybe December/January (we’ll call him “Flash”). We’ve broken up and gotten back together so many times, I’ve stopped counting. It’s really one of those dramatic sagas where you genuinely care about the person and every time you break up you think “ok, one more try…..” Truth be told I’m under enthused and have essentially emotionally checked out of the relationship. But, since I have no room for drama in my regular life, that leaves plenty of room for it in my love life. Our relationship is really something that only he and I understand (and I use “understand” looser than…. *add your own damn analogy here ‘cause I can’t think of anything tasteful*). It doesn’t quite work, but it’s not quite broken either. I guess it’s kind of like that one pair of shoes that you simply live for that’s juuuuuuust about seen it’s last day. You’ll be damned if you throw them out yet though because they are comfortable as all hell, they go so well with just about everything and haven’t completely fallen apart and embarrassed you yet.Read More»
Did you ever think that maybe your relationship wasn’t working because you were putting unfair requirements in place for the other person? Did you forget who you were before you were with them? If you were able to get up and live your life without speaking to them everyday before you met them, why all of a sudden do you need to do so now that you have them in your life? Just me? Cool….Read More»
Tell me if I’m wrong…..
I ask you to do something. We agree that it’s indeed convenient for you and you agree to do it. Am I wrong for not wanting to deal with you when you don’t call and don’t follow through? I HAAAATE to feel like I’m being disregarded. If you can’t do something, or if something comes up and plans need to change, say so. It’s one thing if it’s a party or a gathering of many people that we know a head count isn’t necessary for. If you don’t make it, the show will go on. However, if we plan to do something together, just the two of us, or you agree to do something that only requires the efforts of the two of us and you don’t call nor do you show; when you text me the following day, take my silence as the easy way out.Read More»
