I suppose I am sensitive. In the same token, some people are very insensitive. Everyone has their soft spots. As an example, I could be called fat/obese/a-tub-of-lard all day for the rest of my life and I’d never give a damn—because I weigh 122 pounds. But other things—I could hear a hint of in someones tone or comment and it resonates in my head all day and night. Yeah, at times...
Department orientation tomorrow. I’m excited to meet the people I will be in this small program with. The usual nerves.. hope they’re cool, hope I fit in with the general vibe. I tend to be on the anti-social side when it comes to making the first move for friendships. Then if I like you, I never shut up, I’m actually a little funny and I’ll probably make a good effort to...

3 Tips For This Week [from Paulo Coelho's blog]
Tip 1: Your room Pay attention to the details. Change the places of the furniture. Clean your wardrobe. Eat in different hours. Make phone calls to people who you are scared to call. Tip 2: Public transportation Look to the faces around you. Try to feel what they are feeling now. Talk to a stranger. Be ready to hear a “no”, but try again. Tip 3: A bar Go there alone, and don’t feel...

Ramble Ramble.. ramble
I’m in a funk. I’m in a funk. I’m in a funk. funk funk. funky funk. Like, not a bad mood but not a good mood. A little head ache. A little boredom. A little tired of dealing with responsibilities for the day. I want a little fun. But both of these boys are out handlin their business. This is why I need a puppy. Maybe just a movie. You ever wonder what people would think of you if...
Me: Babe, I wanna go to sleep
Him: Why don't you?
Me: I'm scared that it's going to start up after I'm asleep. I don't want some big gust of wind breaking open the window and catching me like that!
Him: I'll protect you
Me: You'll hold me close and not let Irene blow me away?
Him: Mhm. I'll wrap my arms around you and keep you right here
Well, I was lucky enough that Irene was nothing but a lot of rain and some howling wind in the middle of the night. I know a lot of people had it way worse and I hope your loved ones are safe and in communication. My next order of business is monitoring when nyc transportation will be up and running. Grad school orientation tomorrow !
Kyoko has a blog: When your significant other... →
When your significant other says, “I won’t break your heart..” all you can do is take their word. You can’t look for them to give you ‘The Goonies’ pact. Some kind of contract that reads, “I promise not to shit on your soul, hadouken your heart, rip every shred of your confidence and emotional stability and make you delete every single song on your itunes that reminds you of us...

I’m thinking, if worse to worst with this hurricane, I live across the street from the hospital. Let me innnnn!
I’m kind of annoyed this morning. There’s also a small list of responsibilities nagging at me that I have zero motivation to get through. Then there’s this looming hurricane which I wouldn’t be too concerned with if it wasn’t for the fact that I’ll probably be in my apartment alone and if the power goes out—I’ll shit bricks. A half-complete,...

shukr: I put my hand on him. Touching him was always so important to me. It was something I lived for. I never could explain why. Little, nothing touches. My fingers against his shoulder. The outsides of our thighs touching as we squeezed together on the bus. I couldn’t explain it, but I needed it. Sometimes I imagined stitching all of our touches together. How many hundreds of thousands of...
I’m too drunk to function. And I’m certain my hang over in the next 8 hours will be…deathly. Someone pray for me or at least come hydrate me in the morning.
My bathtub was built by a re-tard.
You know how in most NORMAL commonsense bathtubs, the shower head is on the far end so the stream has the whole length-wise side of the rectangle to spray on? No, my bathtub’s shower head is smack in the middle of the wall, along one of the long sides. So I face the shower curtain when I shower and have 2 feet of space between the wall and the curtain. There’s all this pointless...
I woke up this morning in my new apartment! My bed is extremely comfortable and it makes waking up at a decent hour (before 10am) difficult. My choices for food in the fridge are limited—mainly frozen cheese raviolis, tilapia and chicken. Just excess things my mom had in her freezer and gave me in a cooler. I’m excited to go food shopping although this won’t be hop in your car in...
Fall Purchases (I'll be willing to splurge on)
1. Kindle 2. A nice coat 3. Flat screen TV 4. Birthday plans
I would give Social Network a chance, except 10 min in I hear “She’s a 34B, aka barely there”. Officially offended. But we may make amends since he’s drunk on a Tuesday before 10pm.
I’m feeling…desperate. Most of it is my own fault. I’m not on the same page with any one else so I just need to shut the fuck up and sit on my page. Spread out on it. Fill that shit up. Grow up. I’m feeling…particularly sensitive lately and again, I’m going to blame myself. I’m fed up, with myself. In a short amount of time I’m going to unleash the...
You know when you wake up in the morning and you feel loved. Then you remember your night and laugh because you had a great time. You look next to you and think “YES!” because the person next to you is fucktastically awesome. Yeah, that’s a word. Then you check your phone and are reminded you have an excellent biffers who cares if you got home okay. It’s all...
