Welcome

Writing about my day

I didn’t want to get up this morning. I thought if I could stay in bed all day I could avoid life altogether. I recognized this for the bad idea that it was and got myself up. I heated up some leftover fish and sweet potatoes even though I didn’t feel like eating. I know […]

Not So Simple

I talked a big game when I was in the hospital about cooking health meals for myself. So far, I have not done this. I have been eating good things, but I’m relying mostly on frozen vegetables that are already seasoned. The current excuse I’m using is that I’m taking a class and keeping up […]

Grainy Thoughts

The prompt is grain and once again I’m not inspired. I considered writing about rice. I could talk about the importance of including whole grains in your diet. Those topics would require some research, and I’m just not in the mood. I guess I’ll go to the dictionary and take a closer look at the word […]

An Imposter

I’m in grad school for Library Science and I’m taking what I think is my last class this summer. I feel like the dumbest person in class. A few of these people are working on dissertations. Most of them have undergraduate degrees in fields much more rigorous than mine. They just know more stuff than […]

Twenty-five

When I was in grad school the first time (in the dance program at the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana), my friend Daphne and I formed a dance company. Daphne was from Oklahoma, and she got us a couple of gigs there. So we drove my Nissan Pathfinder to Oklahoma City. Somewhere on Interstate 40, I […]

My Health

The one-word prompt is healthy. I can work with this one since I was already planning to talk about health. The nurse came to my house to teach me how to do my Copaxone injection. I’ll be using an auto-inject device instead of a needle, so that makes it a more pleasant thing to have […]

The Opposite of Diverse

The prompt is diverse. Before responding to one of these prompts, I usually look up synonyms for the day’s word. While checking the word diverse on Thesaurus.com, I saw an ad featuring Kate Moss. I clicked it just to see what it was all about. It went to a video called Kate! The Making of […]

Fractals are Cool

The prompt is chaos. There’s a book by James Gleick called Chaos: Making of a New Science. I started reading it several years ago. I didn’t finish reading it because I wasn’t really smart enough to understand it. I’m not saying that I’m not smart. I’m just not the kind of smart you need to […]
