August is almost over, and you know what that means! Racing to finish the current writing project by midnight tonight, while ignoring things like work, eating regular meals, or doing any of the exercise I really did plan to do this month.

Work dinner at an Italian restaurant! You know what that means?

seperis on journaling: “Cat macros, what you had for breakfast, and that weird growth on your toenail are important; the macros were cute, breakfast meant you were less grouchy at work, and hey, that doctor you saw was kind of hot, it’s the life you live and by definition that makes it the most important […]

WORK *Out of three people we are hiring this month, one has officially started. (I think she likes us!!!11!!!) So far, so good. *On the flip side, another person has effectively reduced their availability to zero hours per week for at least half of September. I’m not quite sure what to make of that, but […]
