  • Finished My Year of Rest and Relaxation. I really liked it. Fun book.
  • Remembering your page number before you close a book is the bummiest bookmark around.
  • All I do is work on stuff and entertain my kid and get my feelings hurt.

  • Reading a book by someone who had pancreatitis. I bought it because I had it before too a while back. Well that and I like the writer a lot. I like how meta the book is. It’s a book that’s also about book writing.
  • Why can’t I work regularly, like other artists…? It’s like… I don’t know what I want to do anymore. -Nagata Kabi p 101
  • Finished My Alcoholic Escape from Reality. Also got one copy of that book for sale at Ten Dollar Books.
  • I act like I don’t have a psychology degree. I could be doing work in that field if I wanted to.

  • Currently in between books and hating it.
  • The best days are the ones when I write a decent poem. Those are my most accomplished days. Today is one of those days.
  • Been taking homeschooling serious the past week. Yea this is what we’re gonna do.
  • A couple of simple things that I don’t want him to lose by going to regular school—1. his choice of writing utensil and 2. his choice to move on from a topic or assignment if he really wants to.
  • Just got caught in the rain with these kids lol.

  • This dude came up to me in a grocery store parking lot today and was like are you familiar with the area? I was like bro you need to get away from me in this parking lot right now. He’s like oh I’m sorry I was just seeing if there was a Target or something. While he was saying that sentence I was like go away. And he walked away. Dumb mf.

  • They get fly I am fly -Juelz
