Neither of those. It instead causes compaction, severe stomach pain, which backs me up and makes it extremely difficult to pass the peanut-paste.

I believe I have finally found my voice in writing.

In school, I was always taught to write formally, to never use the dreaded second person you.

Having seen the success of the writer Caroline Kepnes and her You series, I did some research. Apparently, she was not the first one to employ the "you" perspective as narrated in first person, yet she is the most recent successful writer to do so.

Having dabbled a bit with this perspective tonight in writing something new, I find that I quite like it. It allows me to be the judge of others as the socially aware people watcher. Using s/he when referring to others seems to be somewhat restrictive for the particular character I want to convey.

My writing is sloppy and incoherent, while adjusting to some new drugs. Amazing what some simple chemistry can do, down to base stuff, like lithium. Plus the gboard keyboard makes me feel like I'm a fucking artist using the hand gesture sweep function.

The word "wound" has 2 pronunciations.

An English speaking German UN reporter covering the Myanmar protest killings said that 38 people were killed and many more wounded (like you wound a clock!)
It gave me a chuckle.

I am uncertain what I did last night to injure my right foot, but it's killing me when I try to walk. It's not the ankle where I tore a ligament during my accident years ago, but it's on top of the foot and to the right side.

If it happens again, chug a bottle of magnesium citrate followed by a glass of water. Not only will it feel like you’ve shit out everything you’ve ever eaten, it’ll feel like you’ve shit out everything your ancestors have eaten since 1805.

But it WILL unblock you.

My best friend of 50 years and I both had horrid fathers...though I also got a horrid mother out of the deal while hers was great.

Her dad died this morning. Weird as my dad died on this date 12 years ago. I certainly understand her conflicted feelings since I already walked that road.

When I’m at the market checking the expiry dates on various products, it’s almost purely performative. I rarely know what today’s date is, so a sell-by date means nothing to me.

They poked an extra hole in my vein tonight. Not a big deal, but I gotta keep an ice pack on it.

Why isn't "antelope" pronounced like "Penelope?" Why isn't "Penelope" pronounced like "antelope?"
Where are we going and why am I in this hand basket?
