  • 2017-12-29 MFA Residency Day 2 – First Impressions

    Yesterday went like this… Get up, treadmill, shower, eat, orientation, workshop, eat, lecture, lecture, lecture, eat, faculty reading, next day prep, go to bed. It was a lot to soak in. I enjoyed the lecture on short story writing and one proven formula to utilize for success, but my favorite was the one about poetry. […]

  • 2017-10-05 Why Not Both?

    This morning I met with one of my former managers and we had a good conversation about career, things I should look to be doing, and just generally catching up with our respective lives. There was a lot packed into that hour and while I didn’t necessarily come away with a concrete yes on potentially […]

  • 2017-10-04 Oh the Tragedy of Reality 

    I woke up this morning feeling sadness. I’ve been riding on such a high the past week or so I guess it was bound to end eventually.

  • 2017-04-10 My Own Worst Enemy

    It’s still Monday, for another half an hour. I think I’m my own worst enemy when it comes to doing what I know is right. I declare that the first step to solving my woes is to get enough sleep, yet I’m the one who decides to bake cookies after getting home at 9PM at […]

  • 2017-03-20 It’s All Connected

    I finished writing yesterday’s post at 5:15AM. Which means, I was up at 4 something. Luckily, after it was over, I went back to sleep but the sleep issue is real. The “over-thinking things” issue is real. The “repeating bad patterns of behavior” issue is real. It’s all connected. A few months ago I was […]
