Getting the hang of Saturdays [Aug. 20th, 2011|05:27 pm]
Kathryn Allyn
Today was my first day off in a while. I rode the bus to Santa Rosa and brought Dawn a sample dreamcatcher, if I make six or seven more I can sell them at the Share Exchange (which would be cool I guess.) I went to Treehorn Books, a lovely used bookstore that it is impossible to walk into with a specific goal, and found a small green hardcover copy of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.

Getting dumped makes it really easy to feel unwanted and unloved. I am lucky to have the friends and community around me that I do.

My middle sister got high and adopted a kitten. Then she realized her roommate's allergic to cats and asked if I wanted it. I told her my roommate's allergic to cats.

I do want it though.

Thinking that you are the way you wish you were is bound to get you into trouble.

life is tough? [Mar. 21st, 2011|01:19 am]
Kathryn Allyn
At the end of the summer, my dad moved out, and though they have yet to do anything legal about it, my parents are as good as divorced now. It is pretty weird but at this point I've mostly accepted it, and I've spent a decent amount of time in the past 6 months talking to each of them on the phone about how lonely they are/how difficult life is.

I'm not sure how to handle it to be honest. I just try to be nice to both of them without lying. When you're watching your parents' adult lives disintegrate and reform (or not) after 25 years, it is a little hard to be courageous and nonchalant about my own future.

But fuck it, I can do better than that. Onward.


...is what I try to tell myself.

Writer's Block: Sunday in the park with ____? [Apr. 23rd, 2010|09:00 pm]

If you could hang out with any fictional character for a whole day, who would you choose, and why?


Death from the Sandman series. We'd laugh and feed the pigeons and I wouldn't ask her any questions I didn't want answered.

random musings [Feb. 15th, 2010|10:53 pm]

[music |the black dots]

Sometimes I feel like I'm looking at my life from the outside, but I have all the inside knowledge. Like my life is a movie that only I get to watch. Looking at my movie memories, I think I'm fundamentally not too different from how I used to be, how I've always been... and yet so many things have changed both in my life and in my head.

One of my best friends since childhood is getting married this summer. A girl I walked home from school with every day in fourth grade has a young child and a house (with the guy who used to piss me off in third grade by singing the Star Wars theme in my ear.) Many of my high school and college friends have graduated college or are about to graduate this spring.

For some reason this collection of things makes me feel a little bit young, inexperienced, and unready.


I had a nice Valentine's Day this year, which is interesting because in the past this holiday has been (variously) stressful, annoying, confusing, boring, or ignored. That said, it would have been a nice day regardless of whether or not the events took place on the 14th of February.

I would like to spend some time wandering around the U.S. of A.  This is a pretty good reason to get a driver's license.  Maybe when I graduate college I will go.
