Burn down the forest.

“Perhaps one did not want to be loved so much as to be understood.” I spent this past weekend in LA, and it will be my last for quite awhile. I almost regret going down there, but I can’t fully because…well, it was my choice. I just can’t regret what pulls me down to that […]

Whatever Forever.

I will apologize in advance to my boss, coworkers, or anyone bored enough on the Monday after holiday vacation who happens to read this. I am not feeling it today, and by ‘it’ I mean ‘working’, and I am kind of sorry. Not sorry enough to stop this nonsense, but it’s the Monday after holiday vacation and […]

Burn it down.

A good friend of mine is moving to Los Angeles, and I already feel a little lonely.
