Sorry for all the changes, everyone!

Greetings, Anyone who is actually reading this blog at this point in time! As the title suggests, I’m sorry for the changes. I’m currently working on blog reconstruction. I’ve moved it from being wordpress-hosted to bluehost-hosted, and it’s definitely an adjustment. Lots of tech to learn. But hopefully it will

I found poetry that I actually like. What the hell.

So it’s like, really┬árare that I find poetry (or psalms or written prayers, for that matter) that are compelling and actually make me feel some sort of emotion. For a while, I thought I was some sort of emotional mute, incapable of feeling the emotions that normal people could in

I have a phobia of automatic toilets.

Me and my family are pretty convinced that this phobia stems from when I was a kid, and we’d go to the bathroom and the automatic toilet would flush on me.

And I thought that would make an excellent title, so I’m writing this post specifically because I had a good idea for a title, and that’s honestly a super encouraging thing to happen to me, and damn it I’m going to celebrate my shitty title. And the shitty pun I just made about it.

I honestly can’t think of a clever way to explain that I’m about to talk about the finale of The Office. (That’s it, that’s the title of this piece.)

I used to be extremely surprised, whenever a TV show ended, that I would feel this deep sense of loss. I mean, I expected to feel emotional, but I expected it to end when the show turned off, and all would be resolved. But now I’m not surprised.
