YELLS LOUDLY BC ARIN

quiet reminder for myself and anyone else who needs it

  • you’re alive
  • you’re okay
  • you have people who care about you
  • you can do this
  • it’s okay to be scared and overwhelmed, just don’t let it consume you
  • you’re okay
  • you can do this
  • today might not be a good day, but you’re alive and that’s okay
  • it’s okay
  • you’re okay
  • deep breaths
  • you’re okay
Library Fountain on Flickr. "Who puts a fountain in the middle of a library?"  That was essentially my reaction to walking into the Huntington Beach public library a few weeks ago (though it looks really nice), and I was reminded of it when I stumbled on this quote in Lev Grossman’s The Magician’s Land. Now I know why my wife laughed when I showed her the picture the day after *she* finished the book.

I’ve given up trying to correct people.

Honestly mine isnt even hard but people are dumb

Seriously how hard is it to spell Laurel?! It’s literally Lauren with an L

BOTH oh my god just sound it out it’s not that hard people see more than 6 letters in my last name and freak out like it’s yiddish or something

I don’t know how many people think my name is Sanna or Stina when it is Sinna

I no longer correct people unless their error would create problems in the future (such as something tied to ID or legally/medically important).  I just go with whatever they call me or however they spell it, because 99% of people who don’t know me well get it wrong.  

I’ve taken to automatically spelling my name when I give it to someone who might need to write it down. I actually have to stop myself sometimes.  It still doesn’t always work.

After the Crunch: Rubble and…Ewoks?

Since I work near the Century/Aviation intersection where Metro is planning to build a light rail station, I’ve been watching the demolition of the old bridge with some interest. The northern rise is pretty much obliterated now. The southern section is down to a single wall.

Here’s what it looked like three weeks ago, for comparison.

No, thanks. We don’t want any.

Typical of an outlet store. SARS is soooo last decade.

Not Invited to the Avengers Ball

Not Invited to the Avengers Ball

The Avengers Ball

I was at the grocery store yesterday with my 3½-year old son, and he stopped as we passed a bin of balls. Most of them were solid or mottled, but he immediately picked up the Avengers ball, plastered with the logo and the heroes.

He turned it around for a bit, looking it over, then looked up at me and asked, “Where’s the Black Widow?”

I looked at it myself. Thor, Iron Man, the Hulk, Captain…
