    "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...

    Go Into The Light

    ...at the end of the tunnel. I finally see it after over five years of devastation and utter darkness. I thought it would never end. I thought I would spend the rest of my life in my pajamas eating chocolates and watching rented DVDs after being hassled by the Blockbuster guy to...

    I am okay these days.

    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...

    Sometimes I get worked up about things

    and I take things to heart really quickly but despite that, I get over things pretty quickly with just concentrated periods of emotion and depression that last a few days. Once those are over, I'm sure I'll be okay. The worst will have passed and I truly believe that I will get...

    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...
