Community Status

It's amazing to walk into work and everyone is all "Hey, Carol!" "Carol, how's it going?" "Morning Carol! We still up for game night?" Even customers are all "how did you get into work? You need a ride home? How's Syrus doing?" Slowly, but surely, community is working its way into my life, and I [...]

The Smallest Connection

To be human is to grieve, because if we grieve we are in touch with the swelling of emotions that make us so complex, the glue that permanently connects the puzzle pieces and fragments that make us human compared to the clinical diagnosis that seeks to pull us to pieces for fragmented labels of understanding.

The Destructive Power of Empathy: In Defense of the Narcissist

Today I was feeling well enough to head to the library, and while I was there I finally managed to pick up a book that always looked interesting, but when I skimmed through it, it seemed to bland and... doctoral. Of course, the author of the book has a Ph.D as a clinical psychologist so [...]

Emotional

I've been crying my eyes out for the past 30 minutes over something completely stupid. There's this guy at work named Josh - 34, good looking, nerdy, sense of humor, all around great guy! He seems like he's part of the crowd of sarcastic joke tellers who know how to throw it back, but twice [...]

Relationship with my Tarot Deck

The Answers: 1) Eight of Wands 2) Two of Wands 3) Five of Cups Our relationship should be developed quickly, as the cards cannot be neglected (most likely due to energy work).

2017 & Welcoming in Change

I'm looking forward to doing my vision board on Wednesday, as it'll give me a chance to really launch myself forward. The more I think of UNH the more I hope to get in; leaving mid-term gave me an automatic F for those classes, but I'm sure that can be explained to school letting them [...]

Normality is Strange

The past few days have been rather bland since thanksgiving, and I like it. Stranger than that is that the house feels "back to normal" in a sense. Kylie wanted to do a Sherlock marathon on Netflix, so I offered to bring my tv and stuff downstairs. About 4 hours in she calls it a [...]

Happy Thanksgiving: The Day of Gratitude

OMG I overdid it this year! 😂 All this for 2 people; I should have bought a rotisserie chicken but hey, I pulled all this off for $50 and a free turkey!  Prior too the traditional dinner festivities, I put on my gratitude event! I left the baggies scattered around town in popular places where [...]

Thrown Out: Part 1

My son and I were just thrown out of the library. There was a public event feature some guy who professes himself to be a bit of a mind reader, and they were pretty cool tricks. My son was making little noises lying on the floor - he wasn't loud, but when the room was [...]
