"Although many writers had had periods of significant depression, mania, or hypomania, they were consistently appealing, entertaining, and interesting people. They had led interesting lives, and they enjoyed telling me about them as much as I enjoyed hearing about them. Mood disorders tend to be episodic, characterized by relatively brief periods of low or high mood lasting weeks to months, interspersed with long periods of normal mood (known as euthymia to us psychiatrists). All the writers were euthymic at the time that I interviewed them, and so they could look back on their periods of depression or mania with considerable detachment. They were also able to describe how abnormalities in mood state affected their creativity. Consistently, they indicated that they were unable to be creative when either depressed or manic."

The relationship between creativity and mental illness – a fascinating study based on writers from the prestigious Iowa Writers’ Workshop. Kurt Vonnegut was among the subjects. (via explore-blog)

this is my favorite video of all time bar none

I cannot stop laughing. 

I’m cry


wtf i just thought about/googled this 5 minutes ago and here it is on my dash

I saw a poem on the subway. I can’t remember any of it except part of a phrase: “…like a mysterious lover who went out for milk and never came back.”

It occurred to me that I had one of those. Except he went out for his motorcycle and never came back. I guess that’s what I get for picking men who are anything me. Restless and inconsistent. Should you believe someone when they tell you they are inconsistent and then in the same breath express that they care about you? I’m learning that you probably shouldn’t.

My roommates say that it’s just New York. Kevin cares about me but he isn’t in the business of making me feel better. He wants to help me grow up. “It’s the city of anonymity.”

Worst case scenario is that he had an accident. Or is that the worst case?
