I'm wondering if there's someone out there who will treat me kindly, and not make me cry and stress the way that I do.
I'm doing everything in my power to help this person who is mentally ill, but my suggestions are treated like a faux pas or passé. I'm at my wit's end.
I fucking hate myse...

Posting in my "Memories" journal.
I was about 8 years old, it was the early 90s, and I was at some second-hand store in Morro Bay. A 1980s style survival knife straight out of the movies and with a big compass in the hilt was lying in the display case. Ma let me buy it. Boy, that knife was wicked...

I don't like it.
But I don't know how else to express myself. My sadness. Anger. Frustrations. Stress. Exhaustion. I'm only doing what I've taught myself to do since I was a child. I always found comfort in crying my emotions out. I never resorted ...

As I wrote about a few weeks ago, I got bit by my brother-in-law's family dog right on the nose. It was close to midnight, I was bleeding all over the place, and I made the snap decision, "We're going to the ER." Didn't have time to think about, "Oh, well, maybe an urgent care will do. Maybe some...

Food on the table.

I'm on the tail end of being sick and WFH to keep my team from catching it.
I'm going to reach out to the contractor doing work on our home. The job looks about half way done, but we have some reason to believe the contractor thinks the job is over. So the last few nights, I've been very anxious....

Today I am working from home. This morning I left to drop off our laundry at the laundromat, and then I visited my mom on my way home to drop off her cigarettes and see all her cats. Then I came home, where I showered, did some meditation and tapping, and then worked on programming for a bit. Bef...

My neighbor and I share a large deck together. It's a weird arrangement, I know. The previous owners of both properties were good friends and wanted to share a space, so the property line goes right down the middle of said deck. I just had a chat with my new neighbor, and we clearly have differen...

I'm in San Francisco for business, and writing that I realize I'm now officially middle aged. Pairing with two senior engineers on a project for the next six weeks. Both cool guys, very smart and laid back. Looking forward to continuing work with them.

I didn't write anything yesterday because I was working from home. I love working from home because I get to spend the day with my kitty and just be comfortable. I don't have to be fake-happy or make awkward conversation at work about things that don't matter. I can just do my work and relax and ...

I was sitting on the couch last night watching Breaking Bad when my wife asked me to come look at the Milky Way outside. We stood out there, gazing at the stars together, enjoying a few moments of calm. It was time for bed, so a few minutes later we headed in. As I was making my way to the bathro...
