Wanted: a Stress Ball the Size of Christ Almighty

I hate pity posts as much as the next man but as some of you may know I am currently snowed under, it’s a mix of keeping busy so as not to linger on distressing personal circumstances and being too busy to take a breath, to reflect and to sit at my computer and write.

I feel like things are slipping from my grasp, the list of to-do things is building to a virtual mountain and I’m struggling to keep my head above water: I’ve a show to direct, two plays to perform in, a comedy show to rehearse for and a showcase to produce.

It would also help if I weren’t crying so much.

So, apologies for my lack of writing and apologies for not frequenting your blogs as much as I should, these things come in cycles and I’m sure I’ll be back in full effect before you know it, leaving a string of inappropriate comments and starting arguments with Americans.

Peace.

  2. I'm actually very glad you posted this. I usually don't dwell on my personal misery either, but (like you) I'm unhappy and snowed under too and it's nice to know that I'm not the only one. Misery loves company, I guess! Still, I wish it were better for both of us. The good news is, as my grandmother always said, "This, too, shall pass."

  3. I've spent the last year learning how to not dwell, but I experienced a setback when I crossed paths with a longtime crush this past summer and began doubting everything about myself. My point is that these things test our skills. Good or bad, it's about the enlightenment. I'm just beginning to feel like myself again, the self I'd been nurturing when those lessons came at me.

    Hang in there....

  4. With most inappropriate comments, if you remove the whimsy and anger, you are left with fact.

    Usually, the more truth there is in an inappropriate comment, the more inappropriate it is considered. We must remain vigilant to remember that tolerance works both ways, and that criticism, even vulgar criticism (the only thing Michael Richards is guilty of) works like ExLax in the democratic digestive tract.

    Without inappropriate comments, we'd stay so morally constipated that we'd all look like Gloria Allred, who should remember that fifty years ago, interfering with man business would get her teeth knocked out.

  5. And it seems your sadness is connected with the loss of love. I extend brotherly sentiments, and hope your time of grief leaves as few scars as possible.

    Best of thoughts.

  6. Oh! I know what you mean. There are times when I think I can't breath ... but obviously I am breathing b/c I haven't passed out or asphyxiated myself. Or the emotional darkness descends. It's horrible. One thing at a time, dear Daniel. Tackle one thing at a time. We're patient.

  7. Daniel,
    If there's anything I can do you know where to reach me. Good luck, and I hope whatever you're going through will only make you stronger. I'm not a believer that every challenge does. Some only break you down, no matter how hard you try to make the best of it.

    Until then, fuck you cunt.

  11. "Upper-middle class privileged white boy"... oh how easy it is to put people boxes while you hide behind your anon label. Tell us something about yourself and we'll stick you in a box you fuck wit.
