Friday Feast for October 27, 2006

Create a new candle scent.

  • I’m going to call it “True Happiness”. It’s the smell of ginger, with an accent note of The Boy at the end of the day with cologne on and the smell of clean laundry.

Name one way you show affection to others.

  • I use my exceedingly dry wit in conversations with them. Like, really dry.

What is your favorite writing instrument?

  • Honestly, it’s a glass dip-pen that my ex-boyfriend bought for me when he went to Italy the summer that we broke up. But the one I like to use the most is a Pilot, liquid ink pen.

Main Course
If you were given $25 to spend anywhere online, from which site would you buy?

Are you dressing up for Halloween? If so, what are you going to be?

  • No, I’m kind of lame. I don’t have any friends to go up and party with.

I have “signed up” to be a part of the National Blog Posting Month (by signing up, I mean, I’ve saved this image to my server, posted it here, and made you all responsible for me to keep up with it).

It means that every day in the month of November, I write something, even if it means I inventory the lint in my navel. Thank goodness I’ve set myself up 1/2 a month before hand, that way, I can get all prepared.

I’ve sent off the first packet to a recommender to the Arts Administration program at Ohio State. I still haven’t heard back from the second person I would like to write my recommendation, and I still haven’t written the third person. Also, still haven’t registered for the GRE. I suck, I know.

Still nothing on the new job.

October 12, 2006

I think it’s interesting the way worries are on a scale. On one side of the scale are the problems that are inward: my relationships; with Charlie, with my family, and with myself. On the other side of the scale are outward: graduate school, working, being an adult.

They’re so interconnected. And right when I think that things are on the up-and-up, or at least balancing out, the scales tip and I’m sent careening and looking for my center.

I guess I’m not really sure what to say beyond that.
