I just realized that I only wrote two posts in 2016. Wow. Honestly I think I felt so empty, depressed, and unable to focus. I can’t even describe the year 2016, for multiple reasons. 1. My lack of focus and … Continue reading
Depression is in my brain. For a whole year I’ve been in a depression that is somewhat invisible and that I cannot rationalize a reason for. What changed that could have caused a year of depression? My hair color? My boyfriend (now fiancé) moving in? Moving from my second floor room to a third floor room? Not being as obsessed with Oliver Reed films? I don’t think there is a true reason for it!
I don’t typically act depressed, I just am. I can’t even call it a bipolar depression spell or episode– it’s just a depression state. And it’s not called melancholy because there’s no romanticism in it, no beauty to go with the word.
The depression seems absent much of the time, yet it is always there. And I know it is there because of how my brain reacts when I want to find some magic in it. I know I have happiness down in my heart, but my brain has too much crud in it. Many people might not recognize that I am depressed, but it’s there in my brain telling me I’m not good enough. My brain makes me tired and weighs my spirit down.
So is this a good excuse for not writing like I love to do? I’ve been in a different place and I wish I knew why.

God doesn’t want me to have friends, he just wants me to have people who keep me at a safe distance or have me in small samplings. I’m a normal, good person. It’s frustrating to feel like a character in … Continue reading
Why do I feel bad? Because I can’t get to sleep, so I ended up going downstairs to get a big bowl of frootloops (which I slightly spilled on the way back up the stairs). We have very creaky floors, … Continue reading
If you didn’t notice, I use the Oxford comma. I am a big fan of the Oxford comma. I do not comprehend why people think that discarding the Oxford comma is okay. The omission is nonsensical, rhythmically disruptive, and aesthetically … Continue reading
It’s a pale grey day. Very pale, indeed. At least the air is not too cold; I was even thinking about walking to Left Bank Books to look around, then get more coffee on the way back. Oops, I guess … Continue reading
