Oh Dear...

Has it come down to this?

There is a, what I believe to be, mentally-ill squirrel who comes to visit my window sill every few days or so. Why do I think it is not well? Because it has patches of fur missing yet it continues to scratch itself repeatedly. Not only that, when I approach the window or lightly tap the glass, it remains there, not perturbed by my presence.

So the only visitor I have coming to my window is a patchy, balding, itchy squirrel?!

Just Cuz It's Over, Doesn't Mean It's Over

Best valentine message I saw yesterday:

Instead of getting you a valentine, I am just going to ravage your body.

I am certain that a lot of people who are on the job hunt and are tired of hitting wall after frustrating wall of rejections has considered selling their eggs before.

Yeah, yeah, it's been a while since I've written on this blog. I migrated over to Tumblr, and heaven only knows why I decided to write a post here today. But here I am. Typing. So there.

So what's been going on since I last wrote? Well, I quit my job, took over to Europe to help out with a music festival, returned, found another part-time gig and some other projects and now I'm contemplating another move. Gah. For a dream job. Double gah. Right job, wrong city.

When I was younger, I used to pride myself of the fact that I could move every few years. And now that I've settled somewhere for more than (gasp!) two years, I'm more reluctant to pick up and go. Vacations, yes. Relocation, maybe. Like Sisyphus, who was given the eternal task of rolling a huge stone up a hill only to have it roll back down, sometimes I wonder if I'm destined to constantly re-root. Is my punishment to keep on keeping on?

Aside from that, there is a lot of other muck in my head these days. A dear friend of mine lost a relative she was estranged to, so I am trying to figure out how to provide support for her. Navigating through her grief and emotions has not been easy.

I've also been digging around my own family tree and a series of mini Pandora's boxes have been opened, threads slowly unraveling. There were many things I did not know about my family and sort of am shocked to find out. Then there are a few things I am quite pleased to hear about. Needless to say, it's been an emotional roller coaster lately, which might explain why I was compelled to write an entry.

What better way to process life's confusion than by airing out the mucky laundry online?
