night

Life is SAT scoring. This morning I didn’t get up until 9:30 (I was up some in the night, with Kitty, and then with insomnia). I spent the day without Erik. He was working outside the home. He’s trying to work eight hours a day at this other job and two and a half hours… Read More »

The Year of Magical Thinking

I think it’s good to think about death even though it’s not possible to be prepared. I found this book riveting and fascinating at the beginning, and I wasn’t sure I could handle it, but I got through. It started as a 10 out of 10 for me, and by the end I felt I… Read More »

ghost

At three in the morning Erik’s computer turned on. It woke us up, that annoying three second of sounds it makes when it turns on. It’s a laptop, and he had it open, so it’s possible that Kitty walked on the power button (Kitty was nearby). But it freaked me out.

limits

I feel like I’ve been on the computer all day. I’ve scored two and a half hours and got bogged down trying to figure out what model my LG cellphone is so I could ask on freecycle for a car charger. And I read livejournal, which takes a long time. Last night Kitty woke us… Read More »

magical thinking

Today we went to the park so Erik could run. This was a wonderful idea, to get out of the apartment. First we went to Howe park, but it was super crowded, so then we went to McKinley park, which was fine. I walked and then worked on a letter to my cousin S who’s… Read More »

online volunteering

Last night I started researching online volunteer work, and I’ve found a few interesting prospects. I’ve learned about a website called Free Open University that I might want to get involved with. Cloudy here. I read You Don’t Get There From Here #11 by Carrie McNinch who lives in Los Angeles. It’s first rate journal… Read More »

letter to CDCR

Tonight I wrote a letter to Timothy Lockwood about how I’m opposed to the California Dept of Corrections and Rehabilitation’s proposed lethal injections regulations. The main thing I object to is the unconstitutional limitations placed on the media’s access to executions. If the government is going to be killing people in my name, I think… Read More »
