I got a part time job at a horse farm!! It's kind of far and it's only part time, but I really love horses so it's definitely worth the time on the road. I'm so excited!!

Congrats! Unless it's the horse manure shoveling job...unless you wouldn't mind that ;-)

Working with animals trumps working with people every time!

May I be frank with all of you? I'm scared shitless.

Today I had an interview for what would be considered a 'big girl job'. I always loathed that phrase...'big girl job'...but that's what it would be. 9-5 Monday through Friday business casual water cooler talk day dreaming at your desk about the next vacation. I didn't think I'd...

Dude.    I'm sorry.  I too believe that the joining of such an entity where Mondays are a hated cliche and Fridays are to be praised as salvation only perpetuate people's misery.    It's an institution that teaches people that work is something to despise, rather than to love and in which to take pride.  All that said, while I love what I do every day, I am greatly looking forward to my next vacation.

The Monday through Friday grind. I feel that pain. 

Got married!!

Actually, no chapel was involved. I'm not one for big weddings. Personally, I think they're a waste of money that one could put towards a down payment on a house or a kick ass honey moon. So Forrest and I decided on a small family and close friends gathering at Forrests parents house. There was a taco bar. Margaritas were involved...

Some days it's harder to answer this question than others. I always try to remind myself that depression lies. Circumstances are temporary and sometimes our perceptions of them are too. When things get bumpy, all you can do is hold on and check if things look different when you finally come out the other side.

Good morning, you lovely people!!

In my last post I said that I would post pictures of my new home. Behold!!

My room mate has a wonderfully eccentric style when it comes to home decor. It's so much better than any of that bland and predictable kitsch found in Target

Sadly, my man Rand quit the race today. I could live with Ted Cruz though. Did the isidewith.com test and came up 90% agreement with Rand Paul, 83% Ted Cruz (not that it matters). Please go see someone about that Bernie aberration, he is virtually economically illiterate ;-)

"record player"  nice!  "eccentric style when it comes to home decor"  also nice!!  cute doggy!!!

Hi everybody!!

(Hi Dr. Nick!!)

So it's been a while, which is becoming the usual, unfortunately. I don't know why I've been in such a limbo. I'm here, but not totally aware. I feel like a shell of my former self. I don't feel depressed, exactly. I don't know what it is, but I haven't been as into

Decline all word temptation

Define all worldly tension

Deride all prayerful intervention

Computer nukes come pray with me

Before the war, the war, after the war

Before the war the war after the war the war before the war

Disestablishes human character.

The scariest thing that happened to me, other than receiving my first student loan statement, happened over the summer.

Even though I live in a rather down trodden and thoroughly working class neighborhood I still like to walk everywhere I can. I am constantly warned about walking to and from the neighborhood during the day light hours and even more so at night. There are...

Did you ever call the police about this? Someone like that has to have at least one warrant out for harassment. Also, call Robert De Niro and get him to go all Travis Bickle again.
lunghenotti:
I agree with @catdad on this one, express your very strong desire to him that you want nothing to do with him, at all. Record it if you can, and report it to police so there's at least a paper trail started. If he persists then ex parte / restraining order might be called for. I don't know what your stalker laws are like there but being in a country ruled by laws and having at least the most basic of human & civil rights you do have the right to live where and how you want and who or what you allow in your life / home. Off the record, if this was happening to my daughter, I think that individual would have some kind of 'accident' in the very near future...

It's been too long, my sweets. It really has. I've checked in on the site here and there but haven't had the wherewithal and moderate focus required to write the update that you all deserve. I don't like to half ass anything for the most part.

First off, since my last post I got a 'normal' job. I was apprehensive at...

One day I will come and visit you :)

I do so hope you go to mortician school someday. Stripping/dancing seems difficult as you see a side of the masculine that can be pathetic ugly and sad and the coping options aren't great (like hardening yourself or being cynical or heroin) unless you are super enlightened. I knew one dancer years ago when I was young enough to know dancers who seemed to have it pretty dialed in and the job did not seem to hurt her in any meaningful way.  So happy you have a second job where your co-workers dig you. Liking the people you work with is fucking fantastic!

Yesterday, I turned 33. The same age Jesus was when he died. Now I just need a cross, some nine inch nails, a reason to martyr myself and I'm good to go.

I can pin point the exact moment I became an adult. It wasn't yesterday but it was fairly recently. I was offered some free drugs and I turned them down. I...
