I Locked My Keys in My Car – Episode 030

I wrote this piece in 2014 on a website that no longer exists.  It was about part of a very lengthy interview I went through in 2008 or 2009 in the hopes of getting a job as a teacher’s aide in a special education classroom.

I Locked My Keys in My Car

I wrote this in 2014 about something that happened in either 2008 or 2009.  This piece of writing was originally posted on a website that no longer exists.

I was going through the long process of applying for a job as a teacher’s aid in a special education class.  One requirement was that I go observe a special education class at the high school.  When it was over, I discovered that I had lost my keys.

Dependent – Episode 029

I wrote a poem called “Dependent” on January 21, 2000.  It has never been online before.  The poem is about a bad relationship that I’d gotten out of, and my discovery that things were worse than I’d realized.  I wrote it after thinking about how many times he told me I was not good with words.

Dependent

I wrote this poem on January 21, 2000.  It has never been online – until now.  The poem is a bad relationship that I’d gotten out of.  I was living alone, for the first time in years, thinking about all the times he told me I was not good with words.

I read “Dependent” on episode 29 of my Words of Jen podcast.

Sixty Days – Episode 028

I wrote “Sixty Days” between December 29, 2014, and February 26, 2015.  Shawn and I had to wait sixty days after the judge approved our bankruptcy case, in order to allow creditors to come along and harass us for money we didn’t have.  None showed up at court.

Waiting sixty days was wearing on me.  I wrote one haiku each day, and they have become a little “snapshot” of my mental state at the time.

Sixty Days

I wrote this series of stressful haiku between December 29, 2014, and February 26, 2015.  Each haiku is a snapshot of my mental state as Shawn and I waited for sixty days after our bankruptcy case was done.  Creditors could come after us within those sixty days, and the uncertainty was wearing on me.

I read “Sixty Days” on episode 28 of my Words of Jen podcast.

Season Journey Chapter III (Season 12)

Chapter III of Season 12 went by really quickly.  The reason why is simple.  I was able to complete the majority of the Chapter III objectives long before I was able to unlock Chapter III.

Players can complete five objectives by finishing Bounties in each Act.  You have to complete one set of Bounties in order to complete an objective in Chapter I.  You also need to collect Legendary crafting materials in order to put things into the Horadric Cube – and the only way to get them is to complete a set of Bounties for each Act.

What’s Stuck to the Ceiling Now? – Episode 027

I wrote “What’s Stuck to the Ceiling Now?” back in 2003, as part of a book that I was writing about my childhood.  I quickly abandoned the project after realizing that I didn’t have very many lighthearted stories to share.  This piece is the third – and final – remnant of that writing attempt.  It is about a reoccurring problem that most families don’t have to deal with.

What’s Stuck to the Ceiling Now?

I wrote this in 2003 when I was thinking about writing a book about my early childhood.  The project was abandoned after I realized that I had very few lighthearted stories to share.  This is the third – and final – part of the book I started.  In this one, I share examples of things that ended up stuck to the ceiling when I was a little kid.

Run Upstairs With Plates – Episode 026

I wrote “Run Upstairs With Plates” as part of a book I was attempting to write in 2003 about my early childhood.  The project was abandoned after I realized that I didn’t have very many lighthearted stories to write.  This one takes place in the early 1980s and was the moment when I realized that my family was strange.
