Worst Migraine Ever
I get them once in a while and they just destroy me. My brain feels like it’s about to explode from the back of my head and I get nauseated standing. End, day. End.
So many things
Expectations and desires. Things you want; maybe even things you need. I’ve tricked myself into thinking that I needed something when I really didn’t. I had a lot of expectations and desires for my 24th year. None came to be, but in the process I found out I wanted other things and got a few of those instead. In any case, 25 is going to be interesting. We’ll see where it takes...

Moments of revelation.
Have you ever wondered about changing your life, but never knew when would be the opportune time? As it turns out, you can never know when that right time is. It just happens. You can maybe feel it coming, moments before, but it usually catches you off guard. It’s all sort of exciting, and at the same time, sad. Goodbye to the old, hello to the new.

It's been a dark day followed by a dark night.
Just had a great catch-up session with my best friend, Mark. Back from Montreal for the holidays, he’s here for about two weeks but unfortunately won’t be sticking around for my birthday. And so, we’re celebrating next week sometime with a nice little dinner. It’s been a tough year for him and I; with the two of us separated by life, we’ve had to work extra hard to...

I have dreams.
And now it’s time for a little selfishness. I don’t mean that in a “give me all the coconuts” sort of way… but if you know that you want something bad enough, you’ll find a way to get it, and that process is always a little bit selfish—and by that, I mean selfish with your time. Time begins to have more weight. You find that you need more of it, and more...
