How I Spent July – Freelancing, Cooking, Keeping House and Being a Caretaker

Hey guys! Sorry for the lack of updates – I think it’s been a week since I last posted anything. I’ve been quite busy with things… which is ironic, since I’m ‘unemployed’ right now. I left my old company about a month ago. Believe me, I’d have stayed if I could. I liked the job, it allowed me a lot of flexibility, and I had … Continue reading How I Spent July – Freelancing, Cooking, Keeping House and Being a Caretaker

No.

Hey, guys!       I was feeling really down yesterday because I went for a job interview and the boss was an unprofessional rude ass.    Anyway, I went in all bright and cheery-eyed because the job advertised was for a writer/editor, and a topic I liked.

I actually went home and took a half hour nap after lunch (because I was goddamned … Continue reading Days Where You Don’t Feel Like Doing Anything

There are no such things as regular offdays for a journalist. The most one can hope for is to get off work earlier than usual. The office is pretty quiet compared … Continue reading When Relying on People Screws Up Your Plans

Red

It was barely dawn when I woke up and was unable to fall back asleep. It was still dark outside. And quiet. Red was snoring gently next to me, his long lashes curling across his face. I sat up in the dim light of the room, my legs under the blankets. It was cold. I wanted to snuggle back into the covers, rub myself against … Continue reading Red
