I don't want to be a wrestler Struggling, straining Trying to bend all I encounter to my will Flow like water Accept, embrace Move on

Hope is interesting to kill.

How does one kill an unquenchable hope? It serves me so well. It's what makes me believe I'll succeed. Ignore the odds. But it can be misplaced. An unhealthy obsession—a waste of the short time I have to make a difference. Replace it with a new obsession? I know that would work. It's...

My Name Has A Disease.

For as long as I can remember, I've been unjustifiably annoyed by chewing and smacking sounds. Now my condition has a name!

Heartbreak Road.

I find myself once again heading down heartbreak road. Man, I hate that road.

The cable that, interestingly, wasn’t there.

Today I hoofed it down to Seattle Coffee Works to work on an iPhone app. MacBook. Check. iPhone. Check. iPhone cable... Oops! The app requires a real device, so I was dead in the water. And I could not have been happier. Last Friday, I was at a pivotal...

Betrayal, torture, and damnation are terribly interesting.

How do you go from saying "I love you" over and over every day for more than a year, shopping together for an engagement ring, and moving in together with the mutual understanding that the paperwork was a foregone conclusion, to #luckiestgirlintheworld with another guy...

Crazy can be interesting, too.

Late last night, I walked the streets of Capitol Hill literally talking to myself out loud. "She doesn't love you. She doesn't love you. She never loved you. She's not coming back." I said each one of those to myself out loud literally hundreds of times. I needed...
