My own nature
A friend who has gone thought long term single-Dom greater thn my own mentioned that people thought she was so independent, but that was not get true nature. She just had to be a certain way to survive bing alone. I have not had someone I cared about commit to me in so many years that I have to wonder what my actual nature is. It’s hard to imagine sharing my life with anyone at this point,...

Learn to Dance
So far so good today: I have been trying to have more a focus on dance in the way I live and eat and take care of myself, so I have been recent;y asking myself, “What does this have to do with dance?” before I have ice cream for dinner or spend the whole day reading. Aside: There is a completionist in me that finds it really easy to go through a series of manga or finish reading all...

Currently Reading, X-Men
Spoilers below: Astonishing X-Men 46 by Greg Pak and Mike McKone really surprised me this week. I was reading it with some hesitation because there are so many alternate reality stories that just don’t click with me.

Week in Review
It’s actually been a pretty major week, even though it doesn’t feel that way on a long (thank goodness) achy Sunday. Monday was special, visited a few friends after work, which is a change in habits I am definitely enjoying. Got to see a friend who has been around for years with a bit more clarity, making me want to know her better. I am not sure why I am doing all this socializing: I...
Riot vs. Weekend
I have wanted to do a comic blog for a few years now. I’ve been a pretty happy reader and I wanted to focus on the titles I was really enjoying and such. The name of the blog comes from my experience (up until recently) that Wednesday is the best day of the week: new comics, a day off from my commute to catch up on personal and work projects, and dancing (ballet, Neo nightclub, or both)....
