I am not a writer. You will never see my name embossed on a fine leather book. The dream of being published does not exist for me. Still, I fill this virtual notebook. I cast a light on myself that is not always kind, but always shines true, illuminating the soul. Pieces of me left unwritten. A life I can't always define. Words often unvarnished. Other times finished. They are all my own and this is their home. This is me.
Great blog! I feel like you might be the male version of me...Is that creepy? Too soon? Okay, well I don't look down my shampoo girl's shirt...but I dig your blog and your writing style. You think critically about a lot of interesting issues, and your blog has held my attention longer than the episode of NCIS that's on, so I consider that a win.
Heyyy David! I never thought you were ignoring me, so no worries! Thanks for the add. I would never virtually slap you, or anyone for that matter! Ha, I understand about the 20sb.... if I may ask, do you chat via skype or any other messenger? Curious minds wanna know!
You should definitely visit Taiwan when you have the chance! It's so different from any other country I've ever been to. I've been living here for 3 years, and my Mandarin sucks, which makes for some interesting experiences. Gonna go check out your blog right now :-)
Lol, I just re-read my last comment and I didn't want it to sound like the FWB thing was something funny. Damn that getting lost in translation, lmao! It really was horrible, and I kinda cheated about the writing about it because I wrote a out-of-nowhere inspired poem at 4 am, hahaha.
So I don't know if you remember our little comment convo on writing outside of our comfort zones, and I decided to take your advice and write about something that is hard for me to write...well, kinda, lol. If you have time, stop by and read it and tell me what you think.
Haha. That was cute... Well, since we're getting into details, I'm fighting an infection due to this 2.5 cm ovarian cyst, so my body can't handle fighting my allergy crap crab - and I'm allergic to practically everything under the sun. SO, I feel like crap crab.
Pointless TMI? Perhaps. But it's okay; you can just say we're even. ;)
...I befriend guys, I have two brothers, my stepdad makes perverted jokes. TMI doesn't always bother me anymore.
Hahaha being rediscovered is always a good little ego boost, lol! You should never feel like you should delete anything you write--sometimes the hardest things to say are what really matters the most. You might have helped a reader simply by writing that post--you may have helped them feel like someone understood what they were feeling at that moment when they read your post :) Loved the new post on anger! I think I'm going to try to delve a little deeper in my upcoming posts...I usually just write funny stuff and amusing musings on my everyday life, but I think it may be time to nudge my blog out of its early-20s rut, lol!
Now I am starting to think I should carry a knife around wherever I go in case I ever get myself stuck in something..."STUCK IN AN ELEVATOR, CLEARLY I MUST CHOP MY LEGS OFF" , way better story than "oh I just pressed the emergency button and waited" I see great blog posts in the near future for myself...lol
Hey! I just really started getting back into blogging after sporadic posting for the past year or so...That said, I started going through the list of blogs that I follow and I started reading your blog and I completely remembered how much I loved reading your writing. Really enjoyed the post "Respecting Silence"--I like that you write how you feel, even if it might risk pissing off a few readers. Good job, I hope that I can really get back into blogging and write as introspectively as you do.
Read your latest post! It was great, really gave me a "huh, never thought about it that way" moment. I always thought what you thought, "oh i'd just kill myself and put myself out of thay misery" but really that is majorly wuss'ing out and being the ultimate failure
Have you heard of the book The Checklist Manifesto by Atul Gawande? In many ways, it made me think of your post on "to-do lists" not too long ago and thought it might be something you'd want to check out.
