Still fighting the dean of students. I feel as though she’s threatening me. I sent her an email detailing my reactions to the discussion we had Wednesday and how I felt she had demeaned me by s...


So I had to meet with a bunch of high muckety-mucks today. Because when shit went bad like two weeks ago (before Thanksgiving?) I used the school food pantry, which is supposed to be consequence...


I feel like a broken record, there’s rarely any happy here. So I fought with RP friend again today. I know it’s damn stupid, but I returned to an old site, and I signed up two characters, both o...


I used to laugh about this shit. I mean, it was kind of funny. Who gets triggered by someone else’s experience? Me. That’s who. This forensic mitigation case has begun to give me nightmares, g...


Everything’s exploded again. It’s exhausting to have this much shit be wrong with my life. I’ve had to see the dean of students. She wanted to know why I couldn’t get divorced now, so I had t...


I’ve been crying all day. Doesn’t matter what it is, anything will set me off. I just cried a couple of tears over popcorn a second ago. There’s nothing wrong with the popcorn. It’s very butt...


was on a patch on someone’s backpack. It kind of encapsulates my life right now. I’m up against some kind of wall: it’s part stubbornness, part apathy, part the speed of the changes, part proc...


Nano. Day 3, technically, although I haven’t slept yet and therefore, I am not making word count. I am very slightly ahead of the curve and that is fine. I planned a grand parasail into the no...


Or don’t, you don’t have to. I don’t have much to say in it, anyway. I have a yen to clean my room, but it’s so cold I might just crawl back into bed. I need to make a pot of chili. Maybe cor...


No, I’m not secretly Amy Winehouse. Dude, I can’t even sing. I’m just sighing my way through the end of another sucktastic Monday. It didn’t start, and that is bad. I must adjust my alarms. ...


you’re welcome. Every time I type, Makenzie has to come sit on or near or very close to the keyboard, as if she is telling me that she needs my hands on her more than I will ever need to express...


It’s 2:30 pm, it’s Saturday, it’s going to be a long week, and I’m unmotivated to begin. I’m wearing a sweater and pajama pants. I think I washed my hair Thursday. I feel invaded. The childre...


Had a rare treat this morning. Since the Beast had therapy, and her dad took her, I had the house to myself for a few minutes. I took advantage of it. I snuggled in bed and I listened to the q...


No, nothing died. My brain is on a Queen kick and I don’t have headphones. Miss ODD cut the wires on all my headphones because she was angry about bullies at school. Somehow, in her mind, cutt...


I cannot, for the life of me, find a fucking cheese bagel in town. Walmart hasn’t had them for a week. I know because I’ve looked. Every day. For a week. Winco was out of cheese ones. They h...


I had a day planned today. I was going to roll out of bed (I was going to watch Doctor Who in bed last night, but the cat sat on the space bar and it wouldn’t restart, so I cried instead. Yeste...


I know I’m supposed to be merciful. I know I’m supposed to be consciously kind. I know I should make allowances for my husband. Today, I choose not to. I consciously choose myself today. And...


I forced the hall closet door open today and slammed it into my third toe when I did, so I splintered my toenail three ways and there’s a magnificent little bruise running right along the top. B...


I’m taking a break right now. I have one more paper to write “right now,” before I head home, but it’s not a big paper and I’ve done well so far. This paper will be on interviewing, which is an...


There’s a lot of odds and ends this week. I think this is mostly because it has begun to get cold in the house (shitty insulation, very large window in my office) and I don’t want to do much. B...


So sad, so sad, sometimes she feels, so sad… Eh Sir Paul, you really have no idea. But okay. The tune’s chipper, at least. McCartney was never my favorite Beatle, but John was kind of a weirdo...


Only not. Because I don’t know where the waterfront is around here. We’ve never been there, you see. Today, I am exploring north of my “boundary” of WinCo in Frederickson, off on the horribly ...


I really don’t have anything to say. I’m exhausted. I have a late assignment. I need a shower, and I’m tired, and I still owe Spanish tonight. This one late class is kicking my ass. Needing ...


Title means nothing. I just have the song stuck in my head. University grew teeth this week. The work’s coming in like a nor’easter in Maine in January. I am not happy about this. At the sa...


I feel so bad that I spend so much time out of the house. But I can’t work here. I tried to read here this morning, and while it was okay for the first chapter, Alaina started a video game where...
