Life in the Second from the Last Lane


I've reached a point in my life that I never expected to. Girlfriend, job, college-graduated, not dead, writing every day, and generally making headway against all the skeletons demonizing my closet. Nonetheless... I'm still haunted by them, still confused and uncertain about the course I've set. Still afraid I've chosen the wrong path.

At times I wonder if I should just say "fuck it" and drop everything -- move to some far away country and start anew. Burn the bridges. Sever the ties that bind and do something else that I really love. But I know this is a fleeting feeling, a symptomatic expression of having lived a life spent waiting for the other shoe to drop. I don't know how to be properly happy. I'm always prepared for shit to happen, for life to suck, for something else to pile onto me.

Relationship Advice from an Accomplished Laymen


Yes, that title can be taken in multiple senses. But I'm not really all that accomplished, nor am I "good" at giving relationship advice.

My last foray into that topic was met with abysmal failure. I said something about how having sex if you wanted to have sex was okay and that men wanting to have sex isn't something to be upset about. Wouldn't ya know? Most of the women accused me of lying, attempting to manipulate them into having... casual sex. With who? I'm not sure -- there were too many mouth foaming ad hominems to tell.

It actually got to the point that some women went as far as to explode in a hilarious sexist pool of ignorance, shoveling everything from misandric shit about men being subhuman to accusing me of being a rapist because I had *gasp* a one-night stand!

It was the kind of ignorant drama that reminds me why people in cyberspace need to be vetted before being granted any credence.

My Job: Writer



I've been meaning to write this post for a while. As you've probably noticed (if you're still reading) that I've significantly decreased my output of bloggings lately. It's not just because I graduated from college, or because I moved in with my girlfriend, and not even because I've been zonked out of my mind playing Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty and Diablo III by Blizzard Entertainment™. Nope, I've been dialing back because I've been working this job I mentioned a while ago.

Which brings me to the point of this post. I want to blog about what I do from 8:45 AM to 5:30 PM.
