Wire — “Drill” on The Tonight Show, 1987


Found a photo from my senior prom. James still doesn’t believe I didn’t have a date or was even asked, but them’s the breaks when you’re chronically shy.

  1. Camera: iPhone 4
  2. Aperture: f/2.8
  3. Exposure: 1/15th
  4. Focal Length: 3mm

Probably the only person who could get me to watch an Ice Bucket Challenge video finally made an Ice Bucket Challenge video. 

Shilpa Ray—I Is What I Is

  1. angelsofashes said: ahh good luck! hope you recover soon too.

  1. mossonhighheels said:Intimidating as this must be I’m so glad to read this! Also jealous, but you deserve a job you’re more comfortable in and better suited for and I wish you all the luck in the world with it.

Thanks both of you! Nothing is official yet, but the ball is rolling. I feel partially horrible and afraid about it, but I know it needs to happen if I’m to recover fully. mossonhighheels—please don’t feel jealous! The whole thing is a headache and—although my supervisors know everything, I’m afraid of telling my immediate co-workers. I also feel guilty about wanting a different job, but I am really struggling in it right now and James is worried by how it may be/is effecting my mental health. Really hoping this is the last struggle I’ll have to deal with for some time, and also that it doesn’t effect my trip to London in September! 

So it looks as though I may be taking disability leave from work. I don’t know how long it’s going to last or when it’s going to start, but it’s seriously a huge relief for me. I’ve been feeling so depressed and incompetent at work and I’m really thinking now is finally the time to pursue a different career path. I already have a list of things I want to do—mostly writing and volunteering—with my extra free time, but reflecting on my job prospects is up there as well. So this is exciting! I’m going to make the most of my time and not lift or push anything heavy for awhile. 


I interviewed Stephen Trask a few weeks ago and it was everything I hoped it would be. Then the interview got published, and it was even more than I hoped it would be! Please check it out!
