Do poor, desperate losers need love too?

The other day I missed my train because I was having a conversation with a stranger about the universe (basically). More specifically, we started out discussing food stamps and people who abuse the system and end up buying cigarettes and beer with their food stamp money and don’t throw their cigarettes in the trash instead…

The theme is: Vegan

I was having a conversation recently with this girl I’m friends with In Real Life. About being vegans. Just a couple of vegans (kinda) talking about being vegans. I’ve thought about this and I don’t think that vegans talk especially extensively about being vegan as humans generally just talk about food a lot. But since…

Only the unloved hate. A story about parking in downtown Boston. And more.

Yesterday took a toll on me, as I found myself victim to scheduling setbacks, miscommunications and emotional let downs—my mood found itself compromised with each passing moment. And it was a moment to moment thing—each giving into the surge of pandemonium that was collecting. Yes pandemonium. And hate. I usually have no problems finding parking…

Antidisestablishmentarianism, 2KOOL4SKOOL

When I went to college for the first time, I was sorely—dramatically disappointed. In everything—the system, the professors, the infrastructure, the people that went. It was very difficult to make friends because I was full of hate—something I thought was very unfair at the time. It was pandemonium. The thing is, I couldn’t have been…

Sabbatical & Boston Marathon 2013

Yes. I’m sorry, I know you must have missed me. I’m assuming. I don’t have any answers, just excuses. Most of which I tell myself and friends that remember to ask about why I’ve stopped writing in this. But the thing about things like this is writing everyday or a couple times a week or…

End of ze world?

I’ve been getting frustrated with the media. I use the term loosely of course, the “media” is every venue which preaches any “world is coming to an end” horror story. I have become incredibly optimistic about the future. Reasons for this: 1. Non financial companies are doing quite well. Just as any person would, they…

Selina Kyle? Catwoman? Anne Hathaway? Christopher Nolan?

I have concerns for the new batman movie. Mostly my concern is that it will be awful and that Anne Hathaway is a terrible choice for Catwoman. Does anyone even REMEMBER Michelle Pfeiffer? How can Hathaway ever fill those shoes? She may have been a great, vapid White Queen in Alice in Wonderland, but considering…

Moving on with your life!

Everyone I know is moving. Which is fine! I’m not jealous. I don’t even want to move, I don’t even like it. I couldn’t be bothered to have a blank new canvas for which to decorate. Or want that ghastly uncomfortable period where everything seems new and feels different and even the things you’ve had…

Hurricane Irene

There’s nothing like being heartbroken and mad that someone you really didn’t want to leave does and goes to New York. Forever. And then having a hurricane named after you. A highly publicized hurricane that’s all over the radio, news and internet. So glorious it is to know that my name was constantly repeated for…

Cats, Death, Sadness, Pain, God?

I like to think I’m practical much of the time. I have bouts of irrationality frequently; my current life/economic/social structural model would be considered incredibly irrational by many of my peers. When it comes down to the big issues, I think I’m doing quite well for myself. My cat’s going to die. At least, we…
