215. How to… keep them from stealing the light in your eyes.

You guys... it's been a stressful couple of weeks. I'm midway through the process of buying my first house. The inspection is today. It's been a rollercoaster. I know at this point things could still go wrong, but closing is supposed to be September 17th... assuming the inspector today doesn't find a portal to hell… Continue reading 215.

191. How to… make a proper entrance.

Today, my mom goes in for the first of what will likely be several procedures for an aneurysm at the base of her brain.

70. How to… bring the world back into focus.

So, last night, my friend and I were rambling on as we sometimes do, and we got onto the subject of kids. Don't ask me how we got there, because it probably involved a few strange left turns and a brief foray into the kind of topics that would make interesting comic book fodder... but… Continue reading 70.

16. How to… Keep that positive energy going

So, here's the thing... ... I'm fucking exhausted. Bet you didn't think that was how this one was going to start out, did you? But, truth bomb? I have Cerebral Palsy in real life. A person with CP expends 5x the energy of that of a normal, healthy person simply to get up and move… Continue reading 16. How to… Keep that positive energy going
