No Movie Today…

This week's movie is supposed to be The Third Man. But I haven't watched it yet. And I'm not in the mood to watch it yet. I don't know what the deal is. It's like I'm in a funk today. I'm stressed out about work. I'm anxious over a potential change that I'd kind of … Continue reading No Movie Today…

No Worries

Most people I know worry more than I do. I’m generally not a worrier. In fact, when problems come along, I probably don’t worry enough about them. But maybe that’s a good thing. It’s not that I don’t get stressed out over stuff. If you’ve been reading this blog for just about any length of … Continue reading No Worries

Heartbroken and Infuriated

Have you ever found yourself in a place where you're both heartbroken and infuriated? That's where I am right now. I've been there for the better part of the last 24 hours. Yesterday afternoon, I found out from a co-worker that a child we worked with back in the fall took her own life on … Continue reading Heartbroken and Infuriated

That Line from Office Space

I always feel funny starting off a blog post by saying, "Can I be honest?" Of course I can be honest. It's my blog. I could lie if I wanted to and no one would know the difference. But I'm not gonna lie. I'm going to admit that I'm pretty sure I'm dealing with a … Continue reading That Line from Office Space

Old Commercials and Anxiety

YouTube can be a wonderful waste of time. If you're anything like me, you'll find yourself watching something useful, maybe even informative, and then you find yourself falling down a rabbit hole of videos and suddenly an hour or more has gone by. Maybe there aren't many out there who find themselves in that situation. … Continue reading Old Commercials and Anxiety

Irrational

Do you ever have one of those days where you just feel like nothing you do is right? I'm not necessarily talking about the days where you actually don't do anything right. I'm just talking about the ones that seem that way. Do you know what I'm talking about? Maybe it's just me. I hope … Continue reading Irrational

In the Still of the Night…

I can't sleep. I don't have nights like this very often these days. Once upon a time, I dealt with insomnia like it was my job. And I blamed it on my job. That's because, once upon a time, I worked as a night-time residential counselor at a group home. Part of the job involved … Continue reading In the Still of the Night…

How to Know if I Have a Crush on You

I'm single. Have been all my life. Beyond that, I'm an introverted single person. That makes it extremely difficult for me to approach a woman to whom I'm attracted in order to generate a conversation out of thin air. Therefore, all I ever really experience are crushes. You know, like a kid will have on … Continue reading How to Know if I Have a Crush on You
