Well. Here we are. I feel like I should apologize? I basically ghosted my own blog. I just got so busy, I forgot it existed. Which is both good and bad. On one hand, I've been busy. And being busy means I'm thriving. I've got a few freelancing gigs that don't make me want to… Continue reading Oops.
The world is funny. One day, you're sad that no one is buying your services, and the next you have three week-long or more projects at once. Yesterday, I spent eight hours writing erotic fiction for this guy, and I'm still not done! When will it end! The thing is I both want it to… Continue reading So Many Things
The funeral for the HP Notebook laptop, known as Nebula by her closest friends, occurred today at seven o'clock in the evening. Only one and a half years old, we lost her too soon. She never lived out her full potential, but she sure did exceed the storage available on her hard drive. She died… Continue reading It happened.
I really hate freelancing. Two years ago, I didn't really like it, but I could stomach it because I was making some money. Now that I'm not making money, it makes me want to throw many chairs. It really boils down to my extreme hatred of entitlement. Nothing pisses me off more than some jerk… Continue reading Another Freelancing Post
I've been doing a lot of vocab studying for the Verbal section of the GRE. It's renewed my love of overly specific words. As a book person, I love words no matter what, but there's a particular kind of word that I often find myself at odds with. Words that are longer than they need… Continue reading Words I Like
Like I said in my last review, The Metamorphosis was next on my to-read. It didn't take me long to finish. Maybe an hour total. But, wow, was it a roller coaster. I knew it was about a man who turns into a bug, and I figured I'd still have questions. I was right on… Continue reading The Metamorphosis: Perplexing
I haven't rambled about anything in a few posts. My mood has been all over the place. Mostly lows, some highs - my mind can't make up its mind, ironically. Well, not too ironic, I guess. That's kind of its thing. It doesn't really like to stick with one thing for very long. At least… Continue reading Untitled Drivel
I just spent about two hours studying math. There is nothing I want more than to shrink from reality into worlds where I don't have to deal with exponential fractions and how the sum of x and x backwards equals 7,777. So, I'm going to spend some time talking about the fictional characters I want… Continue reading Fictional Characters I Want to Chill With
I'm a big fan of William Faulkner. As I Lay Dying is probably one of my favorite classic novels. It's strange and disjointed, but it tickled my intellectual fancy. It's rare that I enjoy such an off-the-wall writing style; Faulkner managed to get me on board with it. But this isn't about As I Lay… Continue reading A Rose for Emily: Faulkner Gets Weird
Yesterday I got two very large practice GRE books. They are heavy and scary. Looking at them makes me stressed. But I got them because I think they'll make the GRE less scary. That is the point of them, after all. It says so right on the cover. I don't know about any of you,… Continue reading The GRE: So It Begins
