Let’s get right to it: I’m a gay homeowning office lady in my late 20’s. (28 at press-time, but I’m not interested in the hassle of updating this page yearly with my age, which sounds like less of a hassle the more I try to justify it.) I have a girlfriend who lovingly plays the straight man (is this a pun? a paradox? irony?) to my often-manic hare-brained schemes, and I adore her for it. We also have 3 dogs, who are sometimes cute and sometimes funny, but mostly they play the role of annoying roommates that I have to feed twice a day.
I’m currently on my 6th job since graduating from college 6 years ago, all of which have been in the online education industry, which I would not recommend as a profession, but the shifty economy combined with a very vague degree (Communications! What is that even?) and very specific skills have left me with few choices.
I’m in the middle of hating my job, moping about it, and figuring out what I want to do to change it, while navigating the normal homeowning drama like a leaking roof, jerk neighbors, and many, many stacks of bills.
Off and on, I’ve been doing the blog thing since the turn of the (21st) century, but since I graduated and took a stare-at-the-computer-all-day job, I’ve been admittedly pretty lazy about keeping up with them. However, I have so many friends (I know, get some real problems, right?) who are incredibly talented and who still manage somehow to do things they care about admidst a crappy job, so they’ve inspired me to get off that couch and grab a beverage and then get back on that couch and then actually write some words! Because I really used to like writing words, until most of them were parts of passive-aggressive emails, text messages about dinner, or desperate cover letters.
Here’s what you won’t find:
-Posts in the voice of my pets, because this is creepy and nobody likes it. Also, I’m pretty sure that my pets are very stupid, so it wouldn’t even be compelling to read.
-Detailed DIY home repair tutorials (this is because they would only have 2 steps: 1. Look up instructions on the internet 2. Do the things detailed in the instructions on the internet.)
-Too much personal drama, because this isn’t LiveJournal (or OpenDiary or Xanga or Diary-X) and I am not 16. Anymore. Most of the time.
