*SHOW ME THE MONEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!* (Thursday, August 13th, 2020)

Well… I faced my fear yesterday and created my first “donation button” for this here diary blog of mine. Why did I fear it? As I verbalized it in a passage from a draft of the introduction essay I’m working on: “It’s difficult for me to say because I don’t think I’m ‘so special’ or […]

*Internetism replacing postmodernism? Substance, replacing superficial money schemes?* (Wednesday, August 12th, 2020)

A new domain name! — — — seanoconnordiary.blog — Why did I do it? I wanted my blog’s exterior identity to align more precisely with what it is or what I strive for it to be. Before, the blog was just a hub for my miscellaneous “literature” or “creative writings.” Now, it is more specific […]

Dreams, literally and figuratively (Tuesday, August 11th, 2020)

To shift so jarringly from the remnant feelings of the high I was riding courtesy of Sunday which had been one of my best days to waking up at 5 am to one of the worst and most terrifying nightmares I ever had. The premise was straight forward: Russia bombing the bloody hell out of […]

The sunny high that one can feel while reflecting on an excellent day (Monday, August 10th, 2020)

Yesterday was one of the best days of my life thus far! (What other days compare? The day Ashley and I got married and the days of our honeymoon week driving to and from Myrtle Beach are certainly up there. The week or so when Ashley and I drove to and from Portland, Maine. You […]

Opening myself up to receiving (Sunday, August 9th, 2020)

I was on hold with TD Bank for 19 minutes hoping to obtain some information regarding a “pending transaction.” Then I spoke with a kind lady named Becky. It’s interesting that I did not fully understand the bank’s definition of “pending” transaction. I assumed (I must stop doing that… as much as possible anyway) “pending” […]

Some of the context surrounding the 1st time I dropped out of college And thus set myself up for over a decade of poverty (Saturday, August 8th, 2020)

Money and self-esteem often work in tandem in my case with the exception being that reaching for a most basic and general self-esteem is typically much easier for me than thinking about and discussing money. Having dropped out of college when I was 19, after two semesters of failing classes, certainly didn’t set me up […]

Drugs & diaries (not together but as separate subjects)(Wednesday, August 5th, 2020)

I’ve got drugs on my mind. In the broadest sense of the term, that is, based on the Oxford English Dictionary definition: “Originally: any substance, of animal, vegetable, or mineral origin, used as an ingredient in pharmacy, chemistry, dyeing, or various manufacturing processes. In later use: spec. a natural or synthetic substance used in the […]

Tornado Watch, Meanwhile I think I may be a ‘Highly Sensitive Person’ (HSP) (Tuesday, August 4th, 2020)

The headline reads: “Tropical Storm Isaias to blast N.J. with up to 75 mph wind gusts, heavy rain.

Too much CBD oil made me awfully, terribly paranoid (Monday, August 3rd, 2020)

*[Due to having been a touch “out of it” when this entry was originally written I thought it prudent to go through it and just make sure I didn’t swerve into the utterly incoherent as I strive for quite the opposite when I write.]* [At approximately 7:45 am- 8:00 am—ish]: Notes.

An exhale expressing gratitude for how blessed I am with the privilege and luxury of a day to relax (Sunday, August 2nd, 2020)

Recently we changed the pharmacy we use from Wallgreens to LCS Mail Order Pharmacy. This “mail order pharmacy” concept seemed potentially very troubling to me. Suppose someone does not receive her or his medications in the mail on time? I had put that concern to rest when I spoke on the phone with the seemingly […]
