[Before you read this: There are so many more people that have been awesome to me this year, and in years past, than there ever have been assholes. That may be why the assholes stand out so much. Being that they stand out, they annoy me greatly. If I've ever fussed at you, but I'm [...]
Here’s a tip for you guys, free of charge:
When someone tells you they have depression, severe anxiety, or even PTSD, it’s not your job to tell them, “so do a lot of people.” In fact, you don’t have a job except to hear what they’ve said. If you don’t know how to respond without [...]
A WWII veteran was waiting outside of his local VA lodge to escort a lady friend in (this is very common – my grandmother, when she went to events in Clarksville, would have chaperones all the time, because that’s just how these folks operate), and two young black males beat the crap out of him [...]
I was at Reese Witherspoon’s house. She was having a swim party, and somehow I was both a teenager and an adult at the same time.
The party lasted for two days.
The first day was wholesome and fun, with the adults basically between the round “nerd” pool (it was mostly full of guys), and [...]
I went to my Lyme doc, today.

Dear [alma mater] Career Services, specifically C. R. [edited from original Facebook post, because this is public - I'm airing a grievance, not trying to get someone fired]:
Sending an email entitled “Congratulations Graduate! Eleven Reasons Why I Will Never Hire You.” and introducing that as an article/discussion point in the forum is a terrible [...]
Okay, so knowing one of the teens involved, I have this to say about her: she’s smart, she’s got talent, she’s very pretty, and she’s stronger than she thinks.
Yet she participates in shit like this (she’s the “sharer,” so I whited out her name and photo, along with he name and photo in the [...]
I went to the doctor on Wednesday because my throat was so sore that I felt like I was swallowing glass. I chronicled the whole thing in a video (HERE), but this is basically how it went down:
Called my doctor Tuesday to complain about sore throat, thinking I may have strep. Doctor says, “We’ll [...]
I had the following exchange with someone on Facebook a bit ago – he’s from Greece, he’s a photographer friend of mine, etc. I have no disrespect for him, but I feel pretty much how I said about this situation, as seen in the screen shot below (black is the original poster, white is [...]
A young man with Down’s syndrome in Maryland wanted to sit through another showing of a movie. Rather than either asking him to leave, or leaving him alone (seriously, he sits through another showing, what happens? It’s likely his companion would have gotten him out of there, anyway), the theater calls in some security guards [...]
