Sick Tick

Today is a sick day. The rare freelancer's sick day. I am wrapped in a blanket on the living room couch, working from home.

Still, even if my body's exhausted, my mind is restless. How many times can you recheck your Facebook home page before the action becomes a tick? Whatever amount that it that transfigures a compulsion into a madness, subtract one, and there I am.

Simply Moving On

I haven't posted in quite a while. The world's been whirring around me, and it just didn't seem appropriate to take the time to blog. Finally, though, it's the holidays.

I've been focused on finishing these MFA applications - focused on earning as much money as I can while I still can earn money - focused on going to the gym and eating like a grown-up (albeit an incidental vegan grown-up) - focused on somehow insistently moving forward, despite the threatening lethargy.

So many things, I hope, will change next year. I am not complaining, though - simply moving on.

December Babies

I haven't updated in a bit, mainly because I've been a little bit down and a lot bit busy. Because of this For Profit work, I've had to research a lot of Mommy Bloggers. And, not for the first time, I've found myself irrationally jealous of them. I really envy the community they've created for themselves online.

Being at home alone for hours on end does odd things to a person. I can only imagine what being at home with a baby for hours on end would be like. Perhaps I should ask my sister, babysitter to all of New York.

That is my thought for today.
