Until

Music is a strange thing. It is a series of strung together sounds that are pleasing to the listener. Unless of course you are an old crotchety man waving his stick at the damned youth of today. But music has a way of instilling emotions, making you move fast, or slowing you down for just……read more

Summer’s Over pt3

Along with PanAm came a lot of free shows, activities, and concerts throughout the city. Because of the mass crowds I didn’t try very hard to get to any of these shows. Except 1. The Roots put on a show at Nathan Phillip Square and I just had to be there. It was a… …more

Ahhh….ya know

Stuff. That is what I have been up to. Nothing overly exciting or extravagant or mind blowing. The last few weeks have been me getting on with things and just doing stuff. In all the time since I last posted I only did my nails once. I am very disappointed in myself about… …more

For some reason I am in a really bad mood today. I am upset and I feel like everyone is yelling at me. I have to consciously remind myself that it is me not them. No flipping out, no swearing, no telling them to go to hell. I really want to though. Maybe I should……read more

Crazy Week

So, this past week was a bit insane. There was a lot of bad and a lot of good happening and all of it together made it really hard to get anything done. This means both at work and at home. We’ll start on Sunday as this is kinda important to include. I saw… …more

How could you forget?

At work I have an intern sitting beside me. He is a really nice young man but seems to lack a great deal of pop culture knowledge. I know he is only 21, which does make him part of the generation after my own, but it is shocking what he does not know. I often……read more
