Yesterday, I took an exam and one of the questions asked to identify all five letters of an acronym we learned in class. I didn’t know all five. I remembered the first four letters, but not the last one. After the exam, a small part of me wanted to find the acronym in my notes. But […]Read more "Sometimes, I Have to Turn My Brain Off"
I recently read the book I Can Barely Take Care of Myself: Tales From a Happy Life Without Kids by Jen Kirkman. It is a great book. Kirkman is 42 years old. She wrote in the book that Nirvana marked her teen years. She said that she’d often drive and hope the radio would play […]Read more "I Was Born in 1996 and I Can’t Do Anything About It"

I don’t even remember if it was yesterday or the day before that. But yeah; I’m tired. This semester, I have a class in which I’m […]Read more "I’m Tired, But I’m Living"
