“The slightest trace of what you once believed”

Two weeks from today will be my last day at work, and then I’m unemployed. I’ll be packing up my life to chase a dream, once again, to a new place. Some things never change. I could have written that paragraph 3 or 4 times before #Life went on hiatus (Like this). I’m still the […]

Who cares when school is out?

Every writer for #Life has recently or will soon be moving. Each of us has put all our shit into boxes and duffel bags and those funny string backpacks they give away for free but aren’t actually useful for pretty much anything and we’ve relocated. One of us even bought a house. Who does that? […]

The Maiden Voyage

Greetings brothers, sisters, strangers, friends, and fellow beings. My name is Andrew. I am new to #Life, and I am eager to begin my maiden voyage into the realm of the blogosphere. Please, folks, no icebergs. I start my life from the humblest of beginnings, in rural Illinois, built on the heritage of a small […]

What’s My Age Again?

Just a few #posts ago, I had just graduated and moved two hours away from my university town for an almost-full-time job. I was commuting to an office every day, I had a gym membership, I adopted a dog. I was feeling very much like a grown-up, and I think I talked about using my […]

Wherein the author moves to Florida

GAINESVILLE — After months of living in various states of homelessness and mooching, I finally have my own apartment again. Yet I still find myself sleeping on the couch. It’s not so bad, since the reason is that I still haven’t found my sheets. Not to mention, I own a pretty comfy couch (though it’s […]

#Relocation #win

Walking through Target today, I saw all of the new fall clothes out and I was thinking about buying some of them for the upcoming cold weather. Except I don’t have to worry about any cold weather. On Friday, I accepted a job at the New York Times Editing Center in Gainesville, Fla., and I’ll […]

“We talked about the songs that make you cry”

Apology: This is sappy as hell, probably. I’m not entirely sure because I’m writing the apology before I write the post. But you have been warned. Some time last week, inspired by happening across a song that always make me cry accidentally, I decided to just go ahead and listen to a bunch of songs […]

Chugging right along

The #Lifers seem to be settling down. It’s the beginning of another school year for those left in the education system, and it’s the beginning of our careers for those of us stuck in the real world for a while. It’s weird living in a world where there are fewer and fewer firsts to be had.

#Relocation #fail

Our site has moved. You may not notice it on the outside of #Life, but I had to do all kinds of Interwebz magic. It was quite a serious relocation to a new server. And while it was a relatively simple process, it took me about fifty times to do it. One time when I […]

A world outside Google Reader

As I’ve settled into my new job and city, I’m discovering I have a lot of free time. I spend most of it online. I bought a one-month gym membership two weeks ago. I’ve gone to the gym 4 times. It’s felt wonderful to be disconnected and accomplishing something with my spare time instead of just reading the New York Times and Google Reader for hours on end.
