Dear Zonk,

I’m tired of being in the whiny, brooding, unhappy mood I’ve been in the past several days. So instead, I am going to be angry and hardcore. In order to prepare for this I’ve worn black jeans, black t-shirt and mean black shoes today. And when someone lends me headphones, I’ll listen to some grunge.

Fuck yea!

*nods  in your direction*


And so it is.

Dear Zonk,

This is the fourth time I’m beginning to type this post and I’m sick of the Select All – Delete – Start Over pattern. So I’m going to just type now and let it be. Nothing good seems to come of all the backspacing anyway. Because in spite of many unpleasantries stewing in my head, I really don’t have much to say.

*not says*

Goodbye for now,

Life, the Universe and Everything

Dear Zonk,

I made a t-shirt design that’s up right now over here. If 20 people pledge money for it, it gets printed. Please go look. Buy it if you like it or if you care about Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy, or Douglas Adams, or constellations, or whales, or me. Or Life, The Universe and Everything. And please, please, please definitely share it.

Here’s a picture of my t-shirt. If you click on it, it should take you to the site, where you’ll find a big red button that says ‘Buy This’ that you should totally click on. It’s a good button. And you get a t-shirt delivered right to your doorstep a few days after clicking on it. Everybody likes a new t-shirt. You want a new tshirt. You want this specific new tshirt.

A Feelgood Post, & Random Advice


HOLY SHIT. This is my 800th post on this blog!


Dear Zonk,

I have been somewhat sick and I got dizzy twice since yesterday. The doctor said that if these meds make me dizzy then I must be weak. Which is not the first time I’ve heard that. But, random dizziness notwithstanding, I would like to say that I am actually a little bit healthier than I used to be.

  1. A few months ago, getting dizzy would have led to a full blown panic attack. Which would have led to more dizzy. Which would have led to more scary. And so on and so forth for several weeks. This time round, I just ate ice cream and went to Hamley’s to buy my nephew’s birthday gift. (We got him a T-Rex excavation kit, if you want to know. And I also got myself a kaliedoscope.)
  2. I checked my weight and I’m finally at an almost publicly declarable weight.
  3. I eat an egg sandwich every morning. Which means I eat more protein now than I ever did before, and also more breakfast.
  4. I ate potatoes and carrots today, though I had to option to eat just potatoes. I also ate beans on purpose once last week. And I also told my mom that I’m going to eat more vegetables from now on.
  5. I eat fruit. Apples, bananas and watermelons. Sometimes instead of chips.
  6. I eat less chips overall.
  7. I am a happier person now than I used to be (some people will vouch for this) and this article makes me certain it’s because of how much shorter my commute is right now. I also do work out more and sleep more than I used to, plus my siblings are awesome. So I’ve got a lot of the stuff in the article covered. I also have many opinions on happiness lately, and I plan to tell you. But later.

So, yeah. I feel like I’m getting it together. I also actually started writing this post because thinking about my finances made me think I didn’t really have it together, but screw that. I changed my mind halfway through this post. Which turned out to be not about my finances or my room renovation plans at all. That’s weird. I guess sometimes the post controls the blogger.

Goodnight. Sleep tight. Don’t let the Crazy bite.

Love always,

A Song I Wrote

Dear Zonk,

I’ve been writing songs and singing them to myself for years now. I’m a mediocre guitarist, at best, and I hate my voice. I do like writing songs, though. It’s hard to do and painful and frustrating, but also immensely satisfying. If I had a nicer voice, I’d have shared them with you before. But I don’t. And so my songs and I just hang out in the bedroom. On weekends and rainy days and special occassions and things.

But yesterday, I worked on this lullaby I’d written a while ago. And I think I did a decent job of recording myself and putting the track together. For the first time ever, I don’t hate how I sound. And also for the first time ever, I’ve uploaded it on the internet and I’m leaving it here for you.

This is a first draft. Ideally I’ll fix the timingg issues and the shakiness in a while.
Listen, please. And tell me what you think.

Love always,


The words go like this -


Fold the day into your clothes,
List the things that didn’t go
To plan -
Be sure to tuck it all away;

In shrouded shelves inside your head,
Where work and worry come to rest,
And weariness lays thick as dust
On them;

Now darkness packs the day away,
And night and quiet take its place,
And lull your mind to fix itself,
With dream;

Till morning steals the night away,
With life that kills you day by day,
It won’t be long,
Just carry on,
These things are small,
You’ll mend them all,
Someday, for now, forget them
When you sleep.
