It’ll Grow Back, Right?


I have a buzz cut. The end. My hair started falling out about 6 days ago on Monday. I was brushing my hair before work and the hair just...stayed in the brush. My hair has gotten pretty long lately (I've been growing it out for about 2 years) so I was pulling out entire handfuls... Continue Reading →

They Don’t Have Cancer


Long story short: I've felt like shit over the past few days. My entire mouth hurt until today (who knew that was a thing) and everything I ate tasted really tart, including water. I feel like I've been hit by a truck, and I've thrown up a couple times. Walks around the block are a... Continue Reading →

Raindrops, Roses, Whiskers, Kittens


I had surgery yesterday! I think, though I cannot confirm, that I was a very brave boy. I don't think I mentioned in my previous post that I have several tests and procedures to undergo before I can begin chemo. Yesterday's procedure included a lymph node removal and a port placement. I'll explain: I had... Continue Reading →

A Few Fuck-Yous…


...Brought to you by international air and train travel. 1. Fuck you for wearing your skunk perfume on a plane (also on the train...I'm looking at you, passengers of renfe who showered in old man cologne). I'm glad you're making an effort to smell good but we're all hurtling through the sky in a coke... Continue Reading →

Mingbin, Gaga and Me


I do not want to get on this plane.  I want to stay in this state of airport gate-waiting for eternity. I'm not afraid to fly. I don't particularly like it, and usually I feel a little ill when I fly, but it's only an hour flight and I have good music and a book about... Continue Reading →

Webs


Three spiders have made their homes outside my apartment windows. Sometimes, I watch them spin their webs in the dark, orange streetlights barely illuminating the fibers. Usually they're sheltered from the rainy Oregon weather but every so often, when it rains sideways, huge holes appear in the meticulously symmetrical designs. I'm always so amazed at the...

Summer Vacations Are Over


I just realized I'll never have three solid months off for the summer ever again. And if we're being totally honest, I'm not that sad about that. I never really loved summer vacation. I grew up in a pretty rural area, but it wasn't so rural that everyone else lived in a rural area....if that makes sense...... Continue Reading →

Folw Yur Drms


It's 11:30 p.m. I went to bed at 9:30 (after I graduated from college I turned into a grandmother and am perfectly okay with that). When I can't sleep, I think about weird stuff: 1. I was walking home at night one time when I ran into a few (very drunk) people sitting on a... Continue Reading →
