#DSFWeeklyRewind: Time to relax.

This week, if we were sharing our lives to a soundtrack of sorts, it would be something discordant. Things in my life are not exactly simple at the moment. Not bad, per se, just not simple. I’m officially on Thanksgiving break, so I should be relaxed, but I’m behind on my NaNoWriMo project, which is causing a small bit of stress. Plus, out of nowhere, the Latest Fellow has returned from his disappearing act. I’ve yet to make up my mind whether or not that’s a good thing, as I cannot determine his motives.

It’s left me in quite a curious state.

When I’m in such a mood, I generally listen to some Shostakovich.  Continue reading “#DSFWeeklyRewind: Time to relax.”

#DSFWeeklyRewind: My new coffee share.

Happy Halloween weekend my lovely people! Since the Weekly Coffee Share seems to have gone the way of the dodo, I appreciate that Tara over at Daisy Smiley Face has picked up the slack and made a new linkup for us to compare our weekly tales of wonder or woe.

While the Coffee Share was about sharing over coffee, I get the impression that this one has a bit of a musical score to it (hence the cassette tape… which is a way people used to listen to music, for all you young ones). Given that, my musical score today is coming from Jimi Hendrix.  Continue reading “#DSFWeeklyRewind: My new coffee share.”

Weekend Coffee Share: Going to meet him.

Good morning coffee share peeps (and other various readers, both old and new)! This weekend if we were trading tales about our wonderful weeks over coffee, mine would be hazelnut latte. My roommate has this delicious smelling hazelnut coffee, and although it (in my opinion) doesn’t taste as good as it smells, it is getting me going this Saturday. It’s already lunch time, and I just had breakfast after sleeping over 10 hours.

Weekend Coffee Share: Catharsis

So, first of all, let me apologize for dropping off the face of the interwebs for a while. I haven’t even been on Twitter much until the last day or so. Instagram either.

Since we’ve gotten back into the swing of things (after the Hurricane disrupted life in general), I’ve basically just been trying to keep up with all the changes:

  • The counselors keep moving my students around, and thus I have to adjust the lessons a little more or less for each class based on the adjustments.
  • I’ve been talking to the most recent Indian fellow, but I think he’s gotten tired of my late nights in the classroom.
  • I had to get a tooth extracted… Not fun.
  • And then immediately got the flu.

And then, to top it all off, it seems like I can’t find the linkup for the coffee share. Does it not exist anymore? Have I been gone THAT long?!

Girls: We’re different

I sometimes go to IHOP to write. This sounds counterproductive due to the noise level and being interrupted by waitstaff, but in reality, it’s very comfortable. When I was in college, IHOP became a place of comfort for me. There would be whole groups of us that would gather there late in the evenings (and often into the morning) playing the question game, actually interacting, and being 100% genuine. There wasn’t a lot of judgment at that IHOP. More likely, it was because the atmosphere of a college town where there are competing colleges with competing theological ideologies allowed for an ambiance of honest communication to truly develop.

It was a special time in my life and the only time (prior to knowing about my ASD) that I felt totally comfortable being myself.
