My blog has been rather dark recently, and I wanted to bring up some happier things too. While I have several posts that I’m working on, today I want to highlight a post that I wrote in early January on a concept I’ve had going around in my head for years. The piece is very short, and it is:
Please go read it It’s short, sweet, and a great peek into my mind.
Ironically, it’s one of the few pieces here that gets search engine hits. Apparently, lots of people are looking for “5 paragraph essay[s] about life” and other such nonsense.
Does anyone else have a similar experience, feeling they must explicitly justify everything they think, say, and do?
Health update for those who have been following. I’m currently down with mono, and have been highlighting some older posts that I think might be of interest while I’m recovering.
I’m starting to feel somewhat human again, finally. Dear Mono, I’m going to beat you! Even if it takes me months. At least I’m able to feel bored sometimes now. I’ve found that if I take weekends and Wednesdays off completely, I can (mostly) make it through classes the rest of the week (2-3 hours/day) Hopefully it will only continue to get better from here (famous last words). Now if only I could find a way to gain back that weight I lost. I’ve stabilized (as long as I don’t go do something silly, like try to go to more than I can handle as I did early this week, but I can’t seem to gain anything back, and the instant I try to do more, I lose again, and then the virus flares up. Vicious circle. *sigh*)
