Unintentional Silence

As a former professor of mine used to say, “SPRING SUCKS!”  And when spring is in its suckiest, the thing I do that’s pretty much just for me – writing every day – had to take a break.  Once the final pieces of all that manage to settle out and I have a predictable schedule […]

Research dilemma

We started the final third section of my class on research approaches tonight, qualitative.  I’ve always been drawn to quantitative research because I’m comfortable in math-related things, but I’m starting to wonder if my topic is better-suited to something qualitative.  It’s certainly a writing style I think I’m good at, the thick descriptions and literary […]

Grind shift, grind halt

I’ve been having to take off in the middle of the day from work to run home and give Kuiper some relief while he’s still working on the potty training.

Can’t remember what I read

Watching the Walking Dead season finale tonight, I only remembered pieces of what lined up with the comics, even though I’ve read them at least up to this point (I know I’m behind somewhat on the comics, but not that far behind). The episode was truly riveting and properly tense, and the ultimate pivotal moment was basically […]

Cats holding grudges

Zi simply couldn’t be less impressed that there’s a puppy in the house. Bean, while not exaclty okay with it, has figured out how to maintain his claim on his various domains (like the bed). Zi has basically been hiding out in the catio, other than her Rats of NIHM sneaks across to the dining room […]
