Two awful pics of two new tattoos. The peanut is for Alabama, the quote is from a particularly meaningful pep talk in the speaker’s handwriting.

The house we’re moving into has two bedrooms, lilac walls, and a functional kitchen. Tristan and I will live there without roommates, with the second bedroom shared as a practice/desk space. There’s a big bbq grill outside and a spot for a basketball hoop. The yard is Quark-sized, and it’s far enough from the big streets that I might feel okay about putting in a doggy door that Hank can use too. We’re surrounded by friends’ houses, literally, on three sides of the house. I’m looking forward to living there.

Yesterday I got two tattoos, did all my lesson plans for the week, & put in the 30-day notice at our house. We also drove to Tucson to get Eegee’s & watch “The Big Lebowski” at The Loft.

Next weekend I’ll be camping in the woods with all of my students. Weird life.

I started seeing a therapist, for the first time since I was in elementary school & refused to get out of bed. I guess that’s only mostly true, I once visited a counselor-in-training at VCU when I was 18 because crazy Russell bought me dinner to tell me he was worried about who I was hanging out with. And then three years later I was having a nervous breakdown at a stranger’s house in Columbus, Ohio; when I wandered into urgent care the doc managed to prescribe fluoxetine & Ativan without making eye contact with me. I looked for things to steal in the drawers. I threw out the fluoxetine scrip & doubled up on Ativan with red wine from the gas station.

It’s strange to hear someone other than Tristan or my mom tell me I’m depressed (“suffering from depression”). Processing what that means, to me & to those around me. Open palms & wet eyes, a set of weekly appointments.

Diggin for somethin.
