I moved! Found a great apartment close to downtown Grand Rapids, and only four (very walkable) blocks from work. We’ve been steadily unpacking, organizing, and decorating. Hopefully I’ll have some photos up soon.
One of my non-fiction essays was selected for publication in Grand Valley’s journal of art and writing! It’s a humorous look back at my entire romantic history from 1995 through September 2012. Lots of sarcasm is involved.
I have been anti-depressant free for over a month! It took over two years to wean myself off of them. I had multiple doctors tell me I could just start taking one every other day and be fine and off of them quickly. This was not so.
After experiencing some nasty side-effects (brain-zaps, dizziness, etc.) for an extended period of time, and poring over the interwebs, I started a very long process of slowly cutting my dose down. There were times when I would try to rush the process again and the side effects would come back. I started at 20mg per day and last month I was down to one fourth of a 10mg pill every four days.
I still get a little dizzy from time to time, but I’m oh so happy to be done with them.
The weather, you guys! 70 degrees tomorrow!
and lastly, I found a craigslist missed connection that might be about me. Like 60% chance. That’s just fun to think about, right?
