A Valuable Lesson

I do my best self destruction in the winter. I try to keep myself occupied and happy-ish by any means necessary. I always fail because I usually turn to other people to entertain me and keep my mind off my inconceivable sadness. And every year I tell myself I’m not going to do it. I […]

No Resolutions, Just Solutions

I took a break from writing for about 2 months. No blogs. No books. No poetry. Nothing. I just went dark. I didn’t feel like I had anything positive to say and I didn’t want to junk up the world with negativity. And I didn’t pull my trusty laptop out today because of a resolution. […]

Three Winters 

Despite not being around the blogoshphere lately, I did manage to make it to round two in the NYC Midnight writing contest, which is not really any big feat considering everybody made it to round two, but I placed in the top 15, which not everybody did, so I’m kind of proud of that. The […]
