An Observation About Traps

It’s fruit fly season and I made a fruit fly trap and it works and now I feel bad and sad.

An Observation About Friendships

If you have a friend who wants you to explain and justify just about everything you think and do, do take the time to reconsider the friendship. While you might want to think they’re being analytical and intellectual and thought-provoking, they may just be judgemental.

An Observation About Odd-Time

After two years of trying to figure out what it is, exactly, that stresses me out so much these days, I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s my commute. At 2 x 40 minutes per day, that’s 80 minutes of time that is neither productive nor relaxing, but still time where you have to be [...]

An Observation About Impermanence

This too shall pass, which is good. All is fleeting, which is sad.

An Observation About Understimulation

Being understimulated is as bad as being overstimulated. Uninteresting small talk with shallow people; repetitive tasks that require no imagination day in and day out; endless, unchallenging drudgery of any kind – all as likely to make me implode as stress and overstimulation.

An Observation About Find & Seek

I would rather wander around the store for 30 minutes in search of a particular item than be a normal person and just ask a salesperson where I can find it.
