have you been watching ken burns baseball documentary?
YES, it is amazing!
Is it The Patriarchy when I’m walking home at night and some fratty bros are all, “HOW ‘BOUT THEM DAWGS” and even though I’m a like decade older than them and absolutely hate college football and everything it represents, all I can manage is a slight nervous laugh?
Thanks y’all for the responses re: my medication. Somehow I knew Tumblr would be more reliable/”realer” shit than asking WebMD et al. I’m actually already feeling better/less jittery and it was reassuring to hear that what I was experiencing was “normal”-ish. (Also a great help you guys because it’s $20 if I stay on the phone with my doctor for more than 5 minutes, heh.)
Y’all, is it normal/a thing that can happen if you take a particular antidepressant for a few months (Zoloft) and it works wonderfully and has a calming effect and then you stop taking it for like a year and then when you get back on it and it makes you jittery and more anxious the second time around? It’s been about a week and the prescription cost a lot (for me) and I don’t want it to be a waste of money. Do I need to wait longer to get used to it/build up a tolerance again?
Sometimes I think that my Long-Term Romantic Partnership consists of 10% cutting up/making bad puns together and 90% intense discussions about Navigating What It Actually Means to Be in a Relationship.
I mean what are the ideal conversational proportions supposed to be?
iamthewoodpecker asked: Hey! Do you still live in Athens? I just moved here like a week ago & every thing you post seems awesome & I wanna meet people like the things you post & it's haaaarddd.
Hello! & thank you :) I do still live in Athens. I actually work a lot and don’t do things very often although my blog is carefully curated to make my life look more exciting. Sometimes I go to shows and many of them are at bars but some are all-ages and many of them are at houses! But it seems like most shows are solely advertised via Facebook depending on who-you-know :/ (try friending “Out in Athens” on FB for listings maybe?) Also sometimes I go swimming or visit ~nature~, like biking on the Greenway which is really beautiful. And sometimes we play softball (“Athens Softball” on FB) on weekends although the past few weekends have been way too hot to play.
Anyway I’m going to answer this publicly & hope that some of my local friends/readers can maybe offer more suggestions for things to do around town because sometimes I’m actually the worst at leaving my house…:3
Y’ALL. Does anyone else have this weird invisible mystery Tumblr on their Following List? WHAT HAPPEN.
The link goes to http://.tumblr.com (dot tumblr dot com), which is nothing, and if I try to “unfollow” an error says to “try again later” due to “technical trouble” that “we seem to be having.”
I tried Googling and of course only came up with tips on How to Get 100 Followers NOW &c.
& I’m not one to complain about Inconsequential Inconveniences in the Free Services I Utilize but as you can see, it’s been on my Following list for 7 months and I’m just dying of curiosity. (It could also be possible that I have certain preferences for liking and disliking certain number-amounts of blogs on my Following list, but like, that’s just so random and quirky of me, isn’t it.)
ETA: I guess it could be someone who deleted their Tumblr, but usually when that happens, the username just changes to “deactivated-whatever.” MAYBE IT’S ROBOTS.
I once took 75, alone in my room.
Four years ago, Colby & I had a punkish wedding ceremony at Spillage House, and at the last minute I found a collection of poems by a Russian (I think, or definitely Eastern European) poet with initials AP. Could’ve been Alexander Psomethingski-or-ov. Probably a “classic” that I should’ve known about but didn’t — it was a pretty big, comprehensive collection.
I read this poem for part of my vows. It’s a love poem of course, and all I can remember was that the ending described the lover as (like) a ghost or a dream awakening.
It’s pretty embarrassing that I can’t remember this but in my defense, the book wasn’t even mine and got absorbed back into the living room shortly after the ceremony, so I don’t think I even had time to copy it afterward.
*sigh* …I bet Dirty Jesse would know the answer.
ETA: Thanks Marie, I’m pretty sure it was Alexander Pushkin. Might’ve been A Magic Moment I Remember but the online translations don’t seem to be the same as what I originally read. QUICK! To the Bat-Library!…
