2%

June 21st, 2021 Sometimes it takes an animal’s perspective to help us understand our own lives; the way that humans tend to overcomplicate things often gets in the way of seeing them clearly. This has become very apparent as I finish up hundreds of pages of squirrel research. I have fun facts for days (IContinue reading “2%”

Everywhere You Look

July 20th, 2021 It’s been brought to my attention by multiple people over the last few weeks that I have been talking about Full House a lot, and watching it with curious regularity. I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t begin questioning why I’ve been doing this. With the 90’s being the latest era toContinue reading “Everywhere You Look”

Moving Days

June 7th, 2021 Moving on can be different things. I regularly play a game in my head where I try to imagine what my life would be like if my old job never ceased to exist. Lately, when I play that game, I get genuinely sad when I think of all the people I wouldn’tContinue reading “Moving Days”

Alarm For The Cause Of Being Brave

June 4th, 2021 I’m almost done writing a book (I may have mentioned it earlier) and it has taken me to some of the darkest places writing has ever taken me (I also mentioned that in passing). One of its lessons is about the power of being honest with yourself (and the power dishonesty canContinue reading “Alarm For The Cause Of Being Brave”

Baby, Do You Know What That’s Worth?

May 31st, 2021 There’s an episode of Black Mirror called San Junipero that is based on the idea of a digital life and afterlife. It’s my favorite and one of the rare installments of Black Mirror that has an undeniably happy ending. Without spoiling anything, the end of the episode uses “Heaven Is A PlaceContinue reading “Baby, Do You Know What That’s Worth?”

In Brightest Day, In Blackest Night

May 31st, 2021 My mom was fearless. At least, that’s what she led people to believe. That, by nature, she was bold and wasn’t scared of nothin’. In reality, though, she was human. Green Lanterns, if you don’t know, are heroes who are part of an intergalactic Corp that protect our multiverse. They use ringsContinue reading “In Brightest Day, In Blackest Night”

Announcement: Push

May 29th, 2021 Ope. I guess I had another story to tell. We’ll obviously talk a whole lot more about this, the sequel to Flip, as it gets closer. But I have to say: Push is dark. Maybe the darkest thing I’ve ever written. And yet, if I do my job right, my goal isContinue reading “Announcement: Push”

Why of the Tiger

May 24th, 2021 I find that using metaphor is helpful in explaining behavior or situations or phenomena in a way that encourages the person reading it to be less defensive and feel not attacked. So let’s talk about tiger trainers. First things first: being a tiger trainer is one of the dumbest careers in theContinue reading “Why of the Tiger”

The Truth is Way Out There

May 20th, 2021 I believe in something weird. I believe that the universe purposefully created the particles and the atoms that eventually led to human beings because it wanted someone here who could see, hear, feel and appreciate the universe itself. I believe this because I think the universe is inherently lonely. I don’t thinkContinue reading “The Truth is Way Out There”

Homes

May 15th, 2021 Hey. I am beyond exhausted and overwhelmed at the moment, but I wanted to sincerely thank everyone who made time for us today. We made it work despite being a full year out of small talk practice, and your presence was felt and can’t be overstated. Today I felt a huge partContinue reading “Homes”
