    "Life Is What Happens To You While You're Busy Making Other Plans"

    So today my family and I celebrated my birthday today (though my real birthday was the 10th), and to be honest with you, I was not looking forward to it. I've been sorta depressed since Tuesday because I'm a year older and I still haven't done jack **** with my life. That is, I...

    I've Survived

    I'm more afraid of never knowing than fearing the unknown itself. The unknown does not scare me. What's there to be scared of? I will be fine no matter how my life turns out. My life will not be over when I get rejected or turned away. I am starting to understand that maybe...

    Empathy, Not Sympathy

    If I described myself as a lonely middle-aged alcoholic you'd probably think I was going for the Sympathy Vote, but that's not how it is at all. I know how things are, I don't blame anyone else for the way things are, and I know I still have things better than a lot of folks. I...

    I am okay these days.
