anthem

Help me, it’s like the walls are caving in Sometimes I feel like giving up But I just can’t It isn’t in my blood Laying on the bathroom floor, feeling nothing I’m overwhelmed and insecure, give me something I could take to ease my mind slowly Just have a drink and you’ll feel better Just…

begin again

How are things? My things have finally completely been moved from the old and tiny townhouse to the old-but-new-to-me flip house. Remember when ‘flip’ was synonymous with ‘nightmare’? I do, it was before all those HGTV spin-offs showed us the good things about flipping and that not all flippers are scam artists. There’s not been…

work weekend

August is my busiest month of the year for contract work. Nothing very creative, just nuts and bolts of book layout and such.

screwdles

eye there

I’ve been up and down all week. Sometimes, a good cry is all we really need in those situations; along with some quiet time, a notebook, box of tissues. I’m oversensitive and that’s why I tend to avoid large crowds of people, live so far from family, have (very) few friends. I’m sure this falls…
