I *Heart* Generation X…..

This is the funniest article I’ve read in a long time. I’m technically not a Generation X-er, but close enough to identify with most of the major events that defined that generation, even if I missed the bubble. (I think those born between 1978-1981 should be referred to as Generation XY, since different sources site […]

On Not Being Socially Fearless…

“There once was a woman who had one hundred faces. She showed one face to each person, and so it took one hundred men to write her biography”. —Anais Nin I must say, people end up on my page looking for some bizarre, dark, and morbid things. My analytics program has told me that recently, […]

18 Life Lessons From The End Of September…..

This last week wasn’t really the most stable one, at least when it comes to interpersonal dynamics, friendships, health, money, and emotional well-being. Other than that, of course, it’s all been pretty boring. Rather than writing about the tons of interesting…and mostly personal and off-limits….anecdotes that passed through my life this week, I’ll just fill […]

An Introspective Retrospective…..

One of the very best things about being an online diarist…or, in a less fancy-sounding word, “blogger”….for over a decade of my life is that when I get in one of those introspective moods, there’s a record of my life, often in a form I don’t remember writing. Of course, rarely does the record reflect […]

A Little Of This, A Little Of That….

I meant to spend some time posting a well-crafted update on here today, but instead, I spent a lot of my writing energy sending e-mail to friends and actually doing work, which is important, too. So, although I know you’re all devastated, part two of yesterday’s story is simply going to have to wait. (yes, […]

My 10th Anniversary Post……

A few days ago, I considered writing a post about September 11th, as I do every year. However, with all the feelings of personal anxiety and loss that have consumed my life lately, I figured the last thing that was helpful for me was to dwell on a traumatic experience that none of us will […]

Just Say NO To Drugs….

I am determined that once I successfully withdraws from (prescription) Valium in a non-dangerous way that a *knowledgeable* doctor recommends, I am not taking any drugs, period. The culture of prescribing one drug because another drug made you feel bad, and then the one that works for you is one you’re not allowed to use […]

Recovery-Based Infatuations….

It seems like there’s a lot I’d like to sit down and write about, mostly stressful personal situations going on in my life. I’d like to update the world on the ongoing struggles with my health, and also an amazingly upsetting incident a few weeks ago that involved The Mother Of The Guy I Am […]

Why I Will Not Be Single In Atlanta…..

Recently, it’s occurred to me that I live in a city that’s not only the right kind of city for me or a place I really enjoy living, but the more people I talk to, the more people I find don’t particularly enjoy it here, either. It’s no secret that Atlanta isn’t for me in […]

You Don’t Have To Go Home, But You Can’t Stay Here….

I had a number of different topics to write about recently, but I think the theme for the week is this: crazy people. This particular post got moved to the front of the writing ideas queue because once again, my roommate had an out-of-town friend imposing on our hospitality, and staying with us. In the […]
