on having a healthy heart
last year, i thought having a healthy heart meant forgiving and loving everyone. its true old anger and grudges dont help you get healthy, they can obsess you and pull you down and back into the past. nothing like saying ‘oh well i learned’ and moving on. BUT, just because i dont have a grudge against someone doesn’t mean i have to like them. it doesn’t mean i have to...

I am my own White Knight
Today I took back yesterdays “Maybe” and gave a big fat “NO!” instead. And rather than coming up with a ‘nice’ excuse, I just told the damn truth. Times, they are a-chaaaanging… Less guilt, more assertion! My new mantra. Why at this rate people might discover how I ACTUALLY FEEL about things, no wonder I felt so lonely when I stopped drinking, I had no...

I am human, like everyone else. I hate some people, not many, but a few. I doubt they deserve my hatred more or less than anyone else. More to the point, I DISLIKE people. A lot of people. Probably more right now, in my first year of sobriety, then I ever will again, but who knows. A lot of people get on my nerves. A lot of people disgust me. For the very same things that I do and am, gluttony...
iPhone/iPod Touch games list for kiddies →
I just saw a nice list of iPhone/iPod Touch games for kids. The cool thing is that this list does not include anything my family is currently playing! New games!
Somehow the awesome party of yesterday propels me into the workweek today…usually monday mornings are a particular kind of depression and dread, as much as I love my job, its just hard to leave the house. Today I’m excited to see what the world has to offer, instead of scared of getting smacked in the face by it. I think that’s a sign of good friends :)
Birthday Party of the Gods
Today I’m throwing my first party specifically designed to not be about booze. I’m SO EXCITED! Mostly I realize how every other year until now, in the interest of being a feelgood hippie bottom, I invited everyone I knew whether I liked them or not. Whether they respected me or not. Not this year, hoo-wah! I caused so much drama by not inviting the usual people who claw my soul apart....

The thought crossed through my mind, ‘I wouldn’t like me if I was drinking’ - i.e. I’m now kind of holier-than-thou and much more openly judgemental than I was, as much as I find that stuff repulsive, I think it’s inevitable I embrace it during transition of a drunks life to a sober persons life. But then I realized, I would LOVE me if I was drinking. I would invite...

comics are hard
so i wrote my own plot for a GN, its long and involved and wonderful and i love it. here’s the rub: i can’t figure out how to get it from a plot to a thumbnail/storyboard. the page breakdowns. i have no experience in this and its intimidating me. i was just doing it train-of-thought style but its hard to know where to begin and end.

a rare call from my grandma over in MD, ian, dad and i are going to visit her this spring. she is doing good and sounds cheerful, it always warms my heart to know she’s okay. she asked me if i was drawing and i told her about my in-the-works GN. she too is quite an illustrator and is taking a creative writing class, its neat how things like that span the generations.
to celebrate being an adult, this week i will: go to poppy with my dad, brother, and boyfriend making plans for a regular night of unfettered freek dancing with a childhood/lifetime friend going to dinner with my superfriends j&c have a pizza party with all my fave peeps including several favorite star babies (now kids) going thrift shopping with my mom playin mah new xbox 360!
