Today, I got my first paystub. I’m expecting just enough to pay my aunt for her car and to buy groceries, both of which are sorely needed. I am very, very excited about the car, even though I will be spending this weekend learning how to drive a stick.

I’m at the office alone today, listening to M83 and drinking tea. I am also wearing my yoga pants. I feel like I’m at home, and I love it. This job is a continual boon.
I finally found out what terrible blow makes him stagger this way, and realized how uncomprehending I had been and felt hurt at my heart. It all makes sense now. Why didn’t I understand this before? All of the loneliness and longing and feelings of alienation washed over me tonight while I was in Noor’s car and I was taken back to the other places I’ve shed tears over him. He...

Office Space + sleeping in = a fine day off
I watch Office Space whenever I question the decisions I’ve made over the last few months. I think I’ve made some good choices.
so lately; I was so tired on Sunday that I literally stumbled around like a drunk. I’m so glad no one asked me to drive. It was terrible. Almost two days and at least 12 hours of sleep later, I do feel lots better (and incidentally, a heck of a lot less depressed). I went to look at an apartment today. It’s above a cleaning supply store. I saw the flyer and went in on a whim, since...
brie and wine and fruit for breakfast
Sometimes poverty isn’t so bad. If you’re a Bohemian, you can still figure out how to eat like a Roman king.

a sleepless night spent chatting on FB and drinking too much wine, sleeping the morning away and a hot shower, B & I partying to deadmau5, random texts about old novels, a long chat with Steph about the single life, a long drive to a seminar for work that means A LOT MORE INCOME (finally!), long prayers of thanks, gyros and city lights and getting hit on by (no less than) ten men on the...
Nina has taught me the joy of jumping on the bed...
My baby sisters and my brother have taught me the meaning of joy again, period. Having children in your life, even when they are not your children, changes everything.
It really is horrifying
vuhnessah: that Kanye West got not only more flack, but a worse reputation for grabbing a microphone out of Taylor Swift’s hands and making a rude comment than Chris Brown did for beating his girlfriend until her face was unrecognizable.

Cleaned out my closet this afternoon. There’s nothing quite as embarrassing as reading old journals (I WROTE THAT?!) and running into three year old to-do lists with the same things on them that you need to do today (fail)…
I just put on my "workout to fit into this" skirt....
I smell like death, and I'm sore as all get-out,...
how to keep it together
My sister and I have both been going through some really hard times. Anyone following me has already read about them here, here,here,here,here and here. Tonight, Iris confided in me that she’s been having a lot of the same issues that I went through last year (and sadly, still struggle with this year). Together, we complied a checklist of things that have helped us to keep (relatively) calm...

He decidido que voy a tener que fregar hasta el último rastro del amor que me sentía por ti lejos de mí con el fin de seguir adelante. Si eso significa subir a un tren y moviendo tres días de distancia con poca advertencia, que así sea. Pero tengo que tomar de nuevo la vida me ha dado por Dios. No puedo soportar este nunca más. Espero que tu vida es grande porque el mío va a ser, con o sin ti.
(FAR, FAR TOO BRIEF OF A) REUNION; C gave the public talk this morning at the Hall. It was his first, so it was a special occasion. I had a feeling in the middle of the week about many people visiting our small congregation. Oh, was I right. I decided two weeks in advance that I was going to look excellent today, in case. I didn’t know was and who not going to be there, so I decided to...
