Waking up at 11:32 a.m.

Figs. Plums. Peach. Orange Juice.

All day shift at China Wok.

Grilled Cheese with Tomato and Hummus. Salt n Vinegar Chips. Honey Green Tea.

At the restaurant on the down time I pick out some markers by the register and draw a picture for Aysena. She said she wasn’t feeling well today so I thought it would be an appropriate and creative gesture. I send her a photo of it. Directly translated the sail states, “Aysena, everything is going to be alright.”

She responds and returns the favor...



Coconut Water. Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups.

The day continues.

The China Wok family...


The tips have either been shitty or extremely generous.

Finally off work.

Vegetable Lo Mein. Bohemian Style Lager.

Watching The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia (2009).

Fortune cookie says, “You will be spending time outdoors, in the mountains, near water.”

Learning Russian.

I decide to go on a 4-mile run at 1 a.m. and this is my soundtrack...

To Farm Fresh and back – with a box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch in my little green backpack – running along Laskin Road – the marshy terrain and picturesque moonscape in the background. Sifting through minor thought bumps in my head that turn into triumphant realizations. I think about the past and the girl that once held the rights to my heart. She’s long gone from my communication and affection, but I still think about her, at least one moment within the day. I’m not affected by her like I used to be...not anymore. I’m a free man. And maybe I’ve enslaved myself again, but to another, one who possibly deserves my patient temperament and my embellished romance. I hope so. I mean Aysena is a forced temporary situation...a summer of love kind of thing. But down the road...oh man...I want it...she’s the brightest star in my sky. It’s cheesy I know. And I’m infatuated for now. Ride it out. 

Cinnamon Toast Crunch.

Sleep 4 a.m.
