Zen Capacity

Taking a mental health day today. When you guys do that, you pass out re-watching True Detective and then have two (not one but two) day-mares about doing something stupid that makes everyone you know hate you, right? Because I just enjoy taking care of myself, is all.

Don't worry: one dream was a fictitious imagining about making a scene on my birthday (everything was fine on my actual birthday), and as soon as I woke up the voice in my head was like, "Yeah you wish that many people came around for your birthday." I feel so balanced sometimes, so zen.

My Dear Watson keeps getting little reviews on goodreads. I am so comfortable with being good at stuff no one really likes, it feels like someday long after I'm finally dead some English student will write a bunch of niche papers about me, and that's a good feeling.

I found an online resume by one of my old "peers" from hippie school that lists his own blog posts on his own blogs as publications. I don't know why I hold myself to high standards when nobody else does. It must be a capacity for shame and embarrassment that other people lack.

Remember good idea, bad idea on Animaniacs?

Good idea: Listing your (reasonably professional and not trashy or embarrassing) blog on a resume. Bad idea: Listing your blog posts on a resume as "publications."

He doesn't have individual posts listed, right?

They're blogs he "founded" and yes it's links to his own individual posts. Killing me.
