It's a Family Thing

I'm sure that this summer when I said my final goodbyes to those nearest and dearest to me in Berkeley (i.e., the illustrious Berkeley bums), many of you shed a silent tear (or if you're fond of grandpa's cough syrup like I am, poured out a shot) to acknowledge the end of an era. With my departure from Berkeley, gone were the days of irrational ranting and inexplicable anger directed at the pestilence known as Berkeley's homeless community. And while my encounters in San Francisco may have brought some solace, I would imagine that the troubling little voice in the back of your mind (no, not your conscience, morons) must have kept on reiterating: It will never, ever be the same again! Well, friends, for all of you who lamented my departure, not for my presence or personality, but for my writing, there is a pinhole of light in the otherwise dark and encompassing abyss known as life.

On Soulmates

If there is such a thing as a soulmate in this life, mine is a blogger of taut, witty, poignant one-liners wrought with profound philosophical implications (sic).

Live Fast, Die Young

Given the significant amount of verbiage I have dedicated to the topics of love and marriage in the past few years, it might surprise many people to hear me maintain with steadfast certainty that I am planning to be married by the age of thirty. I mean, if I have such a negative opinion on the subject, what could possibly compel me to seek out the very misery I routinely denounce? Well, that's simple: when your very existence unequivocally depends on something, regardless of how reprehensible, you do what it takes to make sure you survive. Quintessential Darwin. What? Yeah. Read on.

Icing on the Cake

I was just thinking today how anyone who doesn't know me in real life, and only through my online persona of blogger, might actually believe I really am as cynical, bitter, depressed, and elitist as I come off through my writing. Okay, so maybe it's true, but those who know me outside of the Internet will have to agree that while my blog does seem to weigh heavily towards the aforementioned topics, I am not incapable of other emotions. To at least partially address this issue, and perhaps even rectify some misguided perceptions people may hold, I will now present a uncharacteristically positive entry.
