I’m pretty sure it makes my laptop faster. Thanks, cat.
When I was nineteen, I had a friend who was going to Costa Rica for a month to study biology. I mentioned it to my father; something along the lines of “isn’t that cool?” My father replied, “yes, do you want to go?” Somehow, that really did translate into me going too.

The light has turned green, and I am ready to move my car forward. I have moved my line of vision down from the traffic signal, to your brake light. My ankle muscle is tensed, ready to move my foot from the brake to the accelerator. Now I’m just waiting to see that little red light of yours go out. Continue reading Green Light

The cat and I have been arguing lately over which of us is more neurotic. I tried to take a poll of our loved ones to put an end to it once and for all, but it came out a tie. I voted for the cat and she voted for me. So now it comes down to you and what you think.
