Things Yet to Come

I had a very ordinary day with not much going on. One thing I was very pleased about is the start of Daylight Savings on this past Sunday. Moving the clock ahead has made all the difference with an extra hour of sun. Finally! It was a wonderful feeling today for it to be 5…… Continue reading Things Yet to Come

After the Storm

Who knew I would be here in 2019. Just a few days ago I was bubbling with excitement and trepidation over the vocational school I signed up for in the hopes of landing a job after graduation.

Dark Wintry Musings

So far this winter I have yet to experience the outdoor chill of anything below 39 degrees Fahrenheit. This is at least true for the daytime hours when I venture out. Snow only came once in mid-November; I can’t remember the exact date although it wasn’t even that cold that day. A sea of powder…… Continue reading Dark Wintry Musings

My aunt came over to stay last weekend. She’s one of my relatives who I’ve always liked so although my social anxiety nerves were twitching, I was sure I would be fine. After an early drive into New York from Jersey, she popped out to spend the day in Midtown Manhattan with an old college…… Continue reading Seafood Fanatic

Skin Upkeep

I’ve done poorly with foot hygiene. I paid very little mind to mosturizing my feet and sanitizing my sneakers. Until now. I recently washed the insoles of my shoes, using a fresh toothbrush to scrub with a vigorous lather of soap and water. When everything was washed away, I watched a river of caked on…… Continue reading Skin Upkeep

Laundry Drying

Around my neighborhood, people still hang their laundry on makeshift clothing lines in their backyards. Years ago my dad made a clothing line from a very long bulky chain that goes from one end of the backyard to the other. I don’t know the name for such a product but it closely resembles those weight…… Continue reading Laundry Drying
