Comedy and Tragedy
Why are so many bloggers depressed? Do they blog BECAUSE they are depressed, or are they depressed because they blog?? Either way, it seems to be a growing trend. Maybe “trend” is the wrong word here. I’m sure they’re not depressed because it’s fashionable but I was kind of surprised to find such a prevalence of depression among the blogging community (at least the ones I’ve been reading) and how candid people are about their experiences.
I suppose that in our internet age, a blog is like the hardcover journal of yore, except totally public; so it’s a place to vent and share innermost feelings while hopefully getting encouragement and support. I think I just answered my own question.
I kind of hate large bathroom stalls. Well, just big bathrooms in general. Personally, I don’t need that much space to do my business and when the stall/room is too large, it feels wide open and less private somehow. Like I’m in the middle of a living room instead of a bathroom and it just feels wrong to me. Am I alone in this??
Yeah…kind of like that.
I may have had my first ghostly experience at the new place.
K and I went over to clean and I was giving the downstairs bathroom a quick wipe-down. I remember seeing the toilet paper as I was cleaning the sink and it looked as toilet paper should look, nothing funny, but a couple of minutes later when I looked at it again, the end of it was curled up in a really strange way. I’m ALMOST certain it wasn’t like that a few minutes before. I hadn’t touched it, there was no breeze. I was going to take a picture of it because of how weird it looked… just odd…. but I didn’t have my phone! Hence, the record of it here.
I could be mistaken, it MIGHT have been that way the whole time but I really don’t think so.
I just learned that my landlord evicted two sets of tenants for drug dealing and prostitution. Nice. Unfortunately it doesn’t change the fact that the building is still full of sketchy characters.
I think I’ll take my chances with the ghosties.
I’m moving to a haunted house. I won’t get into all the specifics about how I KNOW it’s haunted, that’s for another day; this is just an intro post to what might be a new series on my blog called, “My Haunted House”.
Some people don’t believe in spirits which their prerogative but I also think it’s a little strange when someone doesn’t believe. They will say things like, “It’s never been scientifically proven.” to which I usually reply, “Science is simply the quest to answer unanswered questions. Things that weren’t proven 100 years ago were no less real then than they are now. So, it’s just a matter of time.” And if science NEVER “proves” the existence of spirits; that’s okay too because I have enough of my own experiences to draw a very solid conclusion.
We are set to move at the end of September so here’s hoping for peaceful coexistence!
