Can Stella get her groove back?

The couch has been my friend these days. Too much, in fact, and I'm not happy about that. I'm not thrilled about the person I am these days. It's not the person I know myself to be. I'm less motivated, less passionate, less willing to jump and take risks and take action.

My fire these days is a bit dimmed.

I can't point to a singular reason for this. I can only say that it is a fact of my life for the moment, and that I'm working to change that. I'm not sure how much of it I can control and how much I can't, but I suppose I'll find out.

A mental shift

Today at my guitar lesson I learned how to play continuously throughout chord transition. I've been taking lessons for more than a year and this was the first time I actually really got it.

As is music, such is life.

I'm speaking more directly, honestly and bluntly than ever before. And I'm pretty well digging it.

Why I Defriended You

Why I defriended you: You haven't spoken to me in two years; you made me feel like crap when I was struggling to get into grad school; you are self-obsessed and self-important; you are still the same blowhard you were in high school. Any questions?
