Where I act like the kind of girl I hate

Before the breakup I tried to prepare myself as much as possible for how I would feel afterwards. And gratifyingly, I was right. It’s a small but effective comfort, in the post-breakup blues, to know that you adequately prepared for them. So I itemized all of M’s positive attributes and tried to imagine how their […]

I have utterly and completely run out of ANYTHING to say that does not concern my breakup with M and subsequent events. I try really hard not to blog about abstract concepts or feelings in general because I simply don’t think I can pull it off without being Bedan Neik, but what else is there […]

Don’t feel like blogging these days, much. Personal life is in a state of some turmoil, and nothing else worth blogging is happening. It sucks ass when everyone in one’s Real Life read one’s blog. That, and being Real Friends with bloggers. It’s no longer anonymous. Do you think I could start another more anonymous […]
