Achievement Unlocked: Demigod – Year 50

Today, June 13th, I reached Level 50 in this biological game of Life. As a punk from the 80s, I didn't think I'd make it this far*, and twenty years ago, I nearly took my own life. I certainly didn't think I'd be alone and childless in this journey, but here I am, doing my… Continue reading Achievement Unlocked: Demigod – Year 50

It’s Been a Long Decade

...and no, I'm not just talking about the year 2018, though that year alone has felt like a decade. Recently, I was reminded that I'd be turning 50 in six months. I'm not sure how to feel about it. I think I'm okay with it. I mean, I'm not feeling the great freak out coming… Continue reading It’s Been a Long Decade

Bird Box: I Understand the Title Now

From half the bad or not-so-great reviews I've seen, I expected Bird Box to be far worse than what I just watched, and perhaps that's the reason I enjoyed it. I usually go into movies not expecting much anyway, which is why I thoroughly enjoyed Aquaman...plus, y'know, Jason Momoa...because years ago I followed the hype… Continue reading Bird Box: I Understand the Title Now

Aquaman: A Brief Review

So I got to do this last night and figured since I haven't written any kind of review or anything else in ages, I'd tell you my thoughts. You may or may not like the movie. Depends on where you're at in life, I suppose, but I thoroughly enjoyed the fuck out of it and… Continue reading Aquaman: A Brief Review

Editing 2018

Yep, it's that time of year again when I have to re-image teacher and student devices and get ready for the new teachers coming into the district. This year I'm blacking out July 16th through September 7th. Editing will be unavailable during this time. I'm returning to work today after a week-long vacation, and I'm… Continue reading Editing 2018

A Drop in Time

Hey. I know. I've been quiet. I've had a lot going on in my life. I'll eventually get to the point in which I'll share it with the world, but for now, I need quiet. I need distance. I need solitude. I need peace. I haven't forgotten about you, though. I see you from afar.… Continue reading A Drop in Time

On Writing and Life…oh, and a New Book!

One day I realized I was letting that bitch take my creativity from me.... Something happened several years ago that resulted in the loss of friendships, the loss of someone I'd considered a brother, but at the same time helped me break free from a cycle of manipulation that, under different circumstances had I not just… Continue reading On Writing and Life…oh, and a New Book!

Silent Killers

I read a blog post the other day that made me realize just how lucky I am that my mother is still here, and it caused a calm-before-the-storm shuddering-standstill reaction from me. I broke. In 2007, Umi had a Pulmonary Embolism. I knew it was serious then, and I drive her to her INR appointments every… Continue reading Silent Killers

WTF, Sinuses?

I am sick AF today, and of course, the best option is for me to stay in bed all comfy and cozy, bundled up in my Doctor Who fleece with my water and my meds and my chicken soup/broth and my Kleenex and my remote, and basically do another marathon of another movie series like… Continue reading WTF, Sinuses?
