Not much new…

Not much new…

To report, that is. Though hopefully this week is lighter and easier than last.

I’ve been waking up with bad leg cramps some mornings, but I haven’t really been drinking much lately. So I started drinking two glasses of coconut water a day in addition to regular filtered water to help keep some potassium in my body. So far it’s mostly working just fine, plus it’s delicious! 

I’m very glad I’m not…

Defying my original plans.

Defying my original plans.

I debated making a long blog post about Ferguson, MO, but I think other people have done better at covering it than I have. But if you check out my Twitter, you’ll see a ton of retweets both from Feguson itself and from people reacting to it. Suffice it to say, the situation there is appalling and indefensible. Also, a lot of poor children are going hungry due to the school closure (because for…

“Because she’s…you know…Brazilian.”

How awesome was Justice League/Justice League Unlimited? So awesome.

It’s that time again.

It’s that time again.

School starts in nine days, and I’ve barely gotten anything accomplished for it.

I’m sure the parents reading this can agree with me, because backpacks and notebooks and Clorox wipes. Which, being in college, I don’t have to provide the latter at least.

I do have to buy notebooks, though, but I’m going to do that after my first two days of classes. If I can use my Macbook for notes instead, I’m…

I have no idea what to do with this.

I have no idea what to do with this.

So two weeks ago, I started making my way into the world of freelance writing. And I thought I was doing great because I had my first client within 24 hours.

Except no. Not really.

Without giving details, I made a proposal on Elance and it was accepted. I read the job description carefully, realizing that the starting pay was low. But it said in the terms it would be raised after passing a trial…

On again, and why doing it the “right way” is garbage.
