THE RETURN Sal Paradise returned home two weeks ago. I hope my voice didn’t go up as high as I think it did when I said his name. He turned around, put down his briefcase and smiled at me. “Hey!” we both exclaimed. I put one knee into the chair in front of me, leaned in and embraced him. It was a dream to touch him, even for those brief moments. My face was buried in his right shoulder. I could...

Lack of motivation. A talent is irrelevant if a person is not motivated to use it. Motivation may be external (for example, social approval) or internal (satisfaction from a job well-done, for instance). External sources tend to be transient, while internal sources tend to produce more…

Last night, I had an existential crisis (as you may have seen in my last entry) and couldn’t sleep at all. I had ended up scrubbing the kitchen floor on my hands and knees last night, constantly asking myself, “Who am I? What am I doing with my life?” It was about three in the morning. Am I better now that I’ve had some sleep and had a productive day? Somewhat. But the...
Me too, dear :)

The desire for renewal is gnawing at me. I feel like I’m stuck in the same place, with the same dreams, and with the same people. I have had a life that is extraordinary in all of the wrong ways. People in my age group are travelling, volunteering, studying abroad and finding mates. Why has my life been spent dreaming instead of doing? I feel like I’m like adrift in a sea of my own dreams. I feel...
God gave me my backbone so I can stand up tall and soldier on.
long days/starry nights/ travelling, alone;
I woke up yesterday and got on the horn with Brianna about work. “I intended to be at your place about 9, but I have to wait for my mother to come home. Kids are unsupervised otherwise.” “What time?” “Not sure. But I will see you soon.” She sighed, exasperated. “Okay. See you.” I managed to slip away from home about 9:45, so I wasn’t...

itspaidaa: What the fuck? Is that really what that bible verse says? Yes. That really is in the Bible. True and terrifying.
I have been working out like mad—almost every day. It helps alleviate stress, restless and boredom. I haven’t worked in 3 weeks. The temp agency hasn’t found anything lasting for me yet. I’m thinking of quitting while the getting’s still good. I’ve had almost a year at sitting behind a desk all day, and I can’t understand people who sign up for 40 years...

Tonight, when I configured my email to open in Outlook, my inbox filled with email correspondence from 6 years ago. The newsletters, personal letters, old diary entries and spam are all unfamiliar to me now— a snapshot of the landscape of a troubled past. The names of the people I was writing to are all unfamiliar as well. Tonight, while re-reading some of that email, I saw how...
