• Avoiding a Case of the Mondays

    While my job is not strictly 9-5, Monday through Friday, it’s still easy to get lost in the Mondays, because the rest of the world still operates that way. Best way I’ve found to keep myself from being diagnosed with it is to keep myself busy. And that is something I can’t really complain about it.  I mean, of course, I can, but I’d rather keep my mind limber and keeping busy is a part of that. This isn’t busy to the point of my life being hell (which, it has a tendency to do all on its own… it doesn’t need a helping hand). This is just keeping myself…

  • Summer Rain…

    When you’re happy, you enjoy the music. When you’re sad, you understand the lyrics. One thing I have never shied away from discussing is the fact I struggle with depression. Lately, it’s been a hard time for me – I’m fighting uphill on so many fronts, or at least it feels like it.

  • Honesty

    One thing I’ve learned by way of my mother, that she learned from her grandfather (so my great grandfather) is that honesty is the best way to go. If you don’t lie, you don’t have to remember your story. Sure, one might forget that you talked to someone about something, but, you don’t have to create a web of lies to make up for what was said. I write fiction. I don’t really have time to create huge stories about my life and what goes on it it. I will be completely honest with you. I also don’t let a lie become something that I don’t discuss. I’ll tell you,…

  • In Repair

       Yeah, yeah, yeah. The title is from an Our Lady Peace song, but the video in my post shows a Def Leppard one. If you want to see In Repair, just click that link, don’t worry, it’s in a new window. Not a shock to anyone who has been paying attention, but I have been ill lately, and haven’t been able to do too much. So, I am feeling better. It is going to take a few days to get my feet fully under me. But, to speak about why I’ve that song in my post and no mention of it yet, well, it’s coming. I’ve been struggling…

  • I’m Back

    I’m back in your face like I’ve never been away I’m back in your face and it’s where I’m gonna stay Like a runaway mack, like a union jack I’m back Def Leppard – Back In Your Face So, for the last while, I’ve not been around.
