It’s Not Craziness, It’s Just Life….

“I often think about Where I went wrong; The more I do, The less I know. But I know I have a fickle heart, And a bitterness, And a wandering eye, And a heaviness in my head.” —Adele, “Don’t You Remember?” Today was yet another extraordinarily stressful day, waiting to see what’s going to happen […]

Réspondez, S’il Vous Plaît……..

One of the things I discuss a lot, whether on my blog, in my private journals, or through my poetry and fiction, is the difficulty of struggling with a personality that tends to over-idealise a majority of people, things, events, and relationships, while simultaneously having a high level of distrust that borders on cynicism. It […]

Why Should I?

“What a man wants is to believe that a woman can love him so much that no other man can interest her. I know that is not possible. I know that every joy carries its own tragedy. Oh, it is beautiful to love, and to be free at the same time.” ~ Henry Miller After […]

Never Undervalue The Importance Of Friendship….

Some days, you just feel like you’re having the scariest, crappiest day in the history of the world, and then you open your mailbox, and see holiday cards from people you’re really happy to have as a part of your life. One today was from a long-time friend in Australia, another from a long-time friend […]

I’m Still Here….

I know, I know…you haven’t seen me much around these parts lately. There are many reasons for this, most of which are good, and some which aren’t quite so positive…but, hey, I’m still alive and kicking. Here’s a quick update on what’s been going on the past two weeks or so, and why it’s rather […]

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 […]

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 […]

An Unexpected Hiatus!

As you may have noticed, I haven’t been around much lately, and the “Life Less Ordinary” project has found itself on hiatus. Initially, this was a good thing—I spent two and a half weeks traveling to see family and friends in the Northeast, hanging out in NYC, Philly, and spending a week in the sun […]

Creepy People In Meetup? :O

This evening, I just happened to stop by my much-neglected page, and decided to check in on my stats program, to see if anyone’s been visiting me lately. (As it turns out, they have, although I really have no idea who or why, for that matter.) In any case, one of the more interesting features […]

Friends Don’t Put Friends In Emotionally Difficult Situations…

I’ve been in a rather anxious mood this past week. In fact, that’s a pretty decisive understatement. I’ve been so anxious that not only has my sleep suffered and been filled with scary dreams, but I’ve started chewing the sides of my fingers again, a very bad habit I haven’t engaged in for years. It […]
