Ammona, Part 5

Bunk Room 942 wasn’t quiet for long.  Ammona scrolled through a media feed on her PTD while she lay on her back, left arm behind her head. She tried hard not to listen to the conversation Hian and Barrett were having, but it wasn’t easy. “So, where you from?” Barrett inquired, while he attempted to play Tetris with his belongings and the locker he had chosen. “Not really from anywhere,” said Hian, “My parents were military when I was a kid.” “Not anymore?” Barrett asked, pushing a dark jacket into his locker. Ammona scrolled past a news video about the […]

summer months

I guess it’s kind of been a while. Lots of stuff happened. I’m taking a business class and might attempt to start a small website business in the fall. Pretty fun. I’m also a substitute librarian at the main library here in Portland. I’m super excited about this one. It’s torture and wonder to work in a place so full of knowledge. I love to see what people want to read, and setting folks up with new library cards is a lot of fun. I’m also volunteering for the adult education classes during the summer. It’s pretty humbling to work […]

time

photo from bethany at telling gets old time. something to consider. i have had almost none of it lately, with greenbuilding stuff at work and numerous meetings with US green building council people from our local maine chapter… journalism is not easy, especially if you’re anything like me and you throw yourself into it. i feel like i don’t have enough time lately – i need it more and more as i get older. nick was really funny, he said “honey, that’s called professionalism.” i guess he’s right. here i am, in an office, busting my ass to get the best […]

marceline

this is marceline, marcie for short. she is our new kitten (she’s just a year old) we got on saturday. it was my birthday, so nick and i rode the bus out to our friends’ house and borrowed their car. we got to the foster home (marcie is from a shelter) and marcie was just perfect. she came right up to me and wanted lots of love and attention. she’s wonderful. we went home and watched movies all day while we snuggled up together on the couch. it was a long and fun day. nick made the most delicious fettucine […]

a little bit about being young but not really, and things to do in 2012

i’m on the far right. 3 middle siblings on the left, before the small boys were born. * my momma is sending me a package. i’m pretty excited. yes, i’m nearly 23 and i call her “momma” but frankly i don’t care and i will likely call her that until i die. in any case, i don’t feel almost 23. i feel almost 43. it’s weird to realize that so many people my age are making big mistakes and finding themselves and doing crazy things… and i guess i’m doing a lot with my time (it never seems like i […]
