I like the term "reader" better than I like the term "follower". Google should change that.
Anywho, today is photo day. Here's Jera's photo:
Let us know what you think.
Now I just want to give you guys an update on what's been going on with me. I haven't had much time for such writing of late because of the vampire series, which occupied all of last week, and because I just started school again. I won't say things have felt hectic, because for me, hectic is hustling to stay high or drunk and hoping that I don't meet any cops along the way. But things have been busy.
I am quite enjoying school so far. I scheduled all of my classes for Tuesdays and Thursdays, so I still have quite a bit of "free" time, although that time will undoubtedly be cut to size once my homework load increases. I've been trying to get a little more consistency in my life where the 12 Steps are concerned, as I was definitely wavering for a period. I could feel the effects of that. In my experience, if I am wavering and feeling effects, then I am already pretty close to relapsing, so it is of paramount importance to stay connected with that portion of my life (which was the main point of the trip to Florida).
Oh, and the big news is that on the 28th I celebrated six months clean! I haven't been clean for six months in a row in a couple of years at least. It feels like a major milestone for me. I am proud of that fact and encouraged when I think about how relatively easy it was yesterday to not get fucked up. If I do what I did yesterday to stay clean, then I am told I can expect the same results today. There are only a few people in my circle of acquaintances who believe that I will use again. To them: get fucked, you rotten soulless pieces of shit.
I have the greatest possible mix of people in my life, and to all of you who help me along this path, I'd like to say thank you and acknowledge what is essentially my life debt to you.
Well I'll be goddamned. Don't read much into what I'm about to say... but... I never get writer's block. But here I am. Blocked. This is worse than the constipation I had that I told you guys about a couple of weeks ago. An unfamiliar feeling. Perhaps the result of not enough sleep. Or too much sleep. Or something.
Tell me about you? Where are you from? Do you write a blog? How do you find blogs you are interested in? How old are you? What's your stance on the death penalty? Did you know that human produced carbon emissions only account for 2% of total carbon emissions worldwide? Do you think I should turn my blog into a "Dear Abby" kind of thing, where I just sit on some proverbial high-horse and dish out advice to unwed teenage trailer trash mothers? Do you prefer Heinz 57 or A1? Let me know.
