When they ask you what you’re thinking of say love

Courtney sent me this excerpt. She and Dan Savage are excellent.

Treating monogamy, rather than honesty or joy or humor, as the main indicator of a successful marriage gives people unrealistic expectations of themselves and their partners. And that, Savage says, destroys more families than it saves.

Listen, this guy plays a junior in high school and is actually 4 years older than me.

Endure Suffering As Stoically As Possible

Increasingly I feel as though my expectations of people, situations etc are constantly not being met. As this was becoming apparent I, a first, strongly believed that it was people sucking but now I think I am probably the cause. I am spending too much time in my head thinking about what I'd like things to be like and getting disappointed that it isn't like the picture in my mind. I end up not savoring the different than expected joys.

I need to ask more questions and not be afraid of the answers. Also, more "shhh, just let it happen."

Email Me

About a month ago I decided to stop using my inbox as an archive folder and radically changed the way I handle my email strategy. For tips on how I manage now, get into this website.

And this morning Matt shared this very interesting project with me. It really hits the nail on the head. I get way more emails than necessary daily and most of them break one or more of these rules. It is really refreshing to take a step back and really evaluate how you lead your digital life and make sure that you messages are relevant and easily digestable/actionable. I am trying to make sure I get my act together so that I can spend most of my time IM-ing you guys nonsense because that is where real life happens. HA.

but p.s. I AM ALWAYS GOING TO CAPS LOCK TALK IN PERSONAL EMAILS randomly because I love it too much not to stop. Sorry, you poor unfortunate souls that call me friend.

The Long Road Home

While driving home today...

... a bird ran into the side of my car while I was at a stop sign. I believe this to be the equivalent of a human running into a pole while walking down the street.
... I saw a lifted truck with barbed wire decals all over it. It made me appreciate San Diego that much more.


Not Everyone Deserves Love All The Time

It is really hard to get over the fact that I think I am better and that this feeling should be enough.

This is the Realest Thing

it only makes me cranky. 

I bookmarked this image approximately 1 year ago. So much has changed. 
Do women really enjoy getting penis pictures?

This weekend should be fun!

Get out there!

I spend too much of my life thinking this

“If I didn’t think, I’d be much happier; if I didn’t have any sex organs, I wouldn’t waver on the brink of nervous emotion and tears all the time.”
