(almost) no more day-job

May 28, 2008

Only 20 more days on-the-job. Last day at the office: June 27th. It ought to be getting easier to go to work, but NO. Here I am with my cup of coffee and the clock ticking and I am going to have to force myself into the shower and onto the road.

September 13, 2007

3:03 a.m. September 13, 2007. I am awake. 3:43 a.m. September 13, 2007. I am still awake. In the intervening 40 minutes I have realized that: It’s my birthday, my jaw muscles are raw with ache from clenching my teeth, my attitude is askew–pitched toward the unpleasant and negative aspects of my life rather than [...]
