Starbucks and Other Drugs
Today was hell. And here’s why: I worked a perpetual 6-hr rush today. And if that wasn’t bad enough, I worked it with a coworker who was strung out higher than a goddamn kite. I’m not angry she smokes…whatever it is she smokes (even if she’s a proclaimed Christian and says “that stuff is bad,” thus making her a blatant hypocrite). But I AM pissed she...

Today was a weird day and I’m not exactly sure what happened, so I’m just going to forget about everything that happened today. Except for getting my hat. I won’t forget I got my hat. Cuz it’s fuggin beast.

Tonight I walked through the prairie grass as I ran my fingertips along the top of it, tinged red from the setting winter sun. I found a tree as wide as I am tall and I talked with it in silence for a while. I rounded back to the lake and fed the fish some scraps from my bag before walking back home into warmth and home-made dinner. The sun set behind us and the stars came out and so did all my...
Currently snuggled up under a pile of soft blankets in a sunroom somewhere far away from home. There are no blinds on the windows or doors, so my cot is lit up by the light of the high moon and bright stars. There is no light pollution here. I imagine I will wake to a brilliant sunrise in just a few hours. If not by that, I will be woken by a gentle and familiar voice that I would follow to the...

An Emotionless Calm Down
It’s going to be okay. In 18 hours, I will be packing for my trip West. I will leave my house behind for 36 hours, where I will forget about work and mother. I will be with people that love me and don’t know anything about my mother. I will not speak unless spoken to, and I will watch from a distance, feeling content with the new place I’ve found. I will spend time alone and...
An Emotional Rant
Today was fucking terrible. I ran into my fucking mother. She was in tears and I told her to leave me alone. I fucking told her to get out of my car while she was crying, just asking for some time with me. I hate myself, but I can’t deal with her. I can’t do it. So I made her leave. Then of course I had to talk about it to a mutual friend, which was okay, but then I ended up talking...

Reading Genesis 1 out loud in transliterated Hebrew (requires no pre-knowledge of Hebrew). The Bible is so beautiful, even if I don’t believe completely in it. I didn’t know the Creation story was SO beautifully written. It’s an actual poem, with rhythm and rhyme. The words are warm and thick in Hebrew, and it makes the poetry even more wonderful. I’m amazed. It’s...
I wanna be better than oxygen So you can breathe when you’re drowning and weak in the knees I wanna speak louder than Ritalin For all the children who think that they’ve got a disease I wanna be cooler than t.v. For all the kids that are wondering what they are going to be We can be stronger than bombs If you’re singing along and you know that you really believe We can be...
Every time you update your status, there is at least one major typo. Every. Single. Time. Are you looking at the letters that pop up when you are typing? Do you realize there is a direct correlation of pressing a button and its respective effects? Do you possess the ability to think coherent thoughts, and thusly type them just as coherently? Do you possess the ability to think coherent...

Me: “Congratulations, Doctor/Scholar/Professor/Speaker/Did-I-Miss-Anything Williams!” Her: “You did forget one thing—Mama of Zillah!” Like that is just as important a title… I LOVE HER!!!
"Oh, Christian." Pissed Poetry of the Spoken Word.
Why do you say the things you say? I would like to understand your way, but common sense prevents me. “I can’t do it without Jesus,” you said. And you were speaking of loving others in your head. That hurts my heart—not for you, but for the one who would have to part from you, had you not first joined the heist of loving Christ. Are you really so weak and...
A-routine No Mo'
Every night I shall attempt to do the following: Do some hygiene-ing. Try to write a bit in mah journal/sketch a bit in my sketchbook. Do less o’ Facebook. Study Hebrew—I want to be through at least most of my text books by Summer Do some homework…maybe. Read a chapter of any book. Say a prayer. Sleep before 3. Maybe 4… This is going to be exciting!

Gerbilling Exists. And So Do I.
I now know about 30 Hebrew words. I finished a 400p non-fiction book and enjoyed it. I may be failing 2 classes. I am calm. I am praying. I cried last night. I am probably staying at TCC for 1 more semester. I am jealous and realize it’s stupid. But I’m still jealous. I made a new friend. I don’t give a damn about my mother. I dress really dumb, but I don’t give...
banksystreetart: “Once upon a time there was a bear and a bee who lived in a wood and were the best of friends. All summer long the bee collected nectar from morning to night while the bear lay on his back basking in the long grass. When winter came the bear realised he had nothing to eat and thought to himself ‘I hope that busy little bee will share some of his honey with me.’ But the bee...
Lately. The Day of You.
I have curbed my emotions; I have reigned them in. I’ve not loosed my energies; I’ve sought tranquility of mind. This has found me in balanced state—an emotional armistice. I find myself leaning back over again, but I know better now. Bring those reigns in! Straighten your bones and hold your light! You’ll do yourself harm bowing to what you’ve already defeated. ...
