Develop a healthy relationship with food. If you’re hungry, eat. If you’re full, don’t eat. Eat vegetables to be good to your body, but eat ice cream to be good to your soul.

Take pictures of yourself frequently. Chronicle your life. Selfies are completely underrated. Even if the pictures are unflattering, keep them anyway. There will always be mountains and cities and buildings, but you will never look the same way as you did in that one moment in time.

Your worth does not depend on how desirable someone finds you. Spend less time in front of the mirror and more time with people who make you feel beautiful.

Close doors. Don’t hold onto things that no longer brings you happiness and do not help you grow as a person. It is okay to walk away from toxic relationships. You are not weak for letting go.

Forgive yourself. We all have something in our pasts that we are ashamed of, but they only weigh us down if we allow them to. Make amends with the old you and work every day to become the person that you’ve always wanted to be.

My roommates are watching prank call videos. The kind where people call Chinese food restaurants and intentionally order complicated orders to trip up the person on the phone, whose first language isn’t English (that one just finished). The one right now is a man badly pretending to be Russian and calling women crazy bitches for some reason.

HAHAHA RACISM AND MISOGYNY! HAHAHAHA!

LOL ITS FUNNY BCUZ THEIR FURRINERS

Metrosongs!

Jason Mendelson, Mathematician Songwriter extraordinaire, has launched a new site for his Metrosongs project, where he writes a song for each stop on the DC metro. I’ve been known to jam with this tallest leprechaun of rock back in our TMBG cover band days, and I still have no idea why he even allowed me to. Seriously, follow the link. Check out the Pentagon track. It’s good stuff.

Nutrition for the baby right?

Back in the mid 90s, I had a roommate who skipped on rent, which resulted in me working overtime while going to school full time and a half. I drank so much Mountain Dew at the time that my skin gained a vague yellow tint.Just sayin’, expectant Simpsons fans…

Anonymous asked: Do you ever feel like you're just garnering sympathy by talking about your health problems. I am in and out of hospital constantly, very unwell and having all sorts of gory procedures and surgeries, but I'd feel very self-conscious posting about it where hundreds of people would see it, even in an ostensibly 'funny' way. I don't think you're as profound, humble and wise as you make out to be, sorry! It all seems a little transparent.

thefrogman:

Transparency is my goal, actually.

I have no interest in pity. Sympathy is fine, but I am not seeking it.

This blog is about my life, my humor, my passions, my pup, and my hardships. It is a positive, honest place. Illness is a huge part of my life. I talk about it when it is appropriate and I try to use my voice to help others with chronic and mental illness. I talk about my struggles, but I try to keep complaining to a minimum and I try to keep a positive outlook even when things are dire. Most people seem to appreciate that. 

I will admit that when I write things for my blog I can present the best version of myself. I can be profounder, humbler, and wiser than if I was having a spontaneous conversation with someone. But you are free to ask those who know me best. This blog, my words, my ideas… they are very much me. Just with a bit of spit & polish for public consumption.
