Summer To Do-List (Revisited)
We are nearing the first month of my vacation and I have done quite a few things. Not bad, not bad. Read 10 books (Kavalier & Clay, Everything is Illuminated, White Oleander, The Whale, Midnight’s Children, Mother Night, Reservation Road, Franny & Zooey, Lady Chatterley’s Lover and Through the Looking Glass) Perfume Make bootcamp a habit (ie. go 21 times) Make intervals a habit (21...

Bootcamp Month Two
Today, I finished my second month of fitness bootcamp. I have to admit after having a rough insomnia-laden night, I did not feel like going. I was on the verge of sitting out (again) but I pushed myself, got dressed and drove to the park. One of the factors that contributed to my sudden burst of dedication is the thought that it was my 21st session. I also remembered the commitment I made to...

Day 7 - Your ex(es)
I recently went to a show at Churchill’s and saw some friends I hadn’t seen in years. These friends were mutual friends of an ex of mine and they proceeded to tell me how this Ex (No. 2) has a little girl but his life is such a mess. Crazy stories about leaving his baby momma for some “hot chick” but then he tried to fix things with his baby momma to “make things...
Day 6 - A stranger
I didn’t skip this one yesterday because I forgot. I just simply didn’t know what to write. Is it a particular stranger? Any stranger? Strangers with candy? The only thing that comes to mind is when you make eye contact with a stranger in passing and they linger like they want to tell you something. Like you sparked something in them and it suddenly makes you want to turn around and...

Day 05 - Your Dreams
Figurative or in the literal sense? Because we all know that the dreams I have when I’m asleep are quite entertaining. Like the one with Angelina Jolie and a cult group called the Chrissians. (Yes, you can laugh). My other dreams include being a writer, first and foremost, quitting my job and moving to Italy’s countryside and sip wine all day as I write many, many stories (and finish...

Day 04 - You sibling (or closest relative)
As much as I try to avoid talking about my family I guess I have to come to terms with how dysfunctional we are. I don’t have brothers or sisters. I don’t socialize with any of my cousins or aunts or uncles. They have done so much to hurt my mom and me that I just rather stay away rather than retaliate. So, this entry is voided I suppose.

Vivid Dreams (of the non-pregnant variety)
Last night I had a dream that I had a pet whale. Except, he was like a pet dog in whale form. He’d jump on people and lick your face. He was just overgrown (baby killer whale size). He was the sweetest thing and he loved me.
