When you get two cryptic DMs from relatives and you think for one second that time has come and you’re not ready for it.

Well, it didn’t happen today. Let’s hope not for a long, long time.


This rock is spinning too fast for me. It’s time to start a new month in the BuJo and I’m working on different daily habits to keep. I’ve taken some writing time off – I do that when I finish a book – so March will work differently, I imagine. Some ideas to pursue:

  • Pre-work walks, because I haven’t kept to my walking goals at all. Last thing I want to do when I get home is exercise.
  • Switch up the yoga, and go by time instead of poses. I need to get the most out of it.
  • Get more music in my routine. I wanted to sit and listen, but even that seems like a chore.
  • One TV episode a night. I want to get through a few series before the next seasons begin.

I don’t set aside much time for entertainment. If the months are passing at a steady clip I want to enjoy myself.

Spring Break Staycation

We won’t travel this Spring Break. Used to be we’d find an event in NYC or DC, but there are things we haven’t done here. It’s time to play hometown tourist and tear through a junk food bucket list:

  • Ice cream on the boardwalk
  • Trail walking
  • Letterbox hunting
  • Art museums
  • Lunch in an oceanfront hotel
  • Matinee movie
  • Zoo trip
  • More to come…


Years ago I wrote a chocolate review blog. I also made vlogs, but some asshole told me I was ugly and stop making them. So I did. I wish I hadn’t deleted the channel, and I hope that jackass is plagued by hemorrhoids and boils. Only takes one person to spoil what you love. Fuck them.

I don’t know if I’d start up again, but if you’re curious about my chocolate recommendations, here are a few if ever you travel (in no particular order):

  • Dilettante in Seattle, WA
  • Moonstruck Chocolates in Portland, OR
  • Peterbrooke’s in Jacksonville, FL
  • Bissinger’s in St. Louis, MO
  • Vosges in NYC
  • The Chocolate House in DC

Some you can order online. Some you need to go for the full experience.
