late thursday morning sippin’ a cup of joe…

well, i thought i would wake up and wanna talk deep thoughts, but i’m not in the mood.

i am still just waking up (i got to sleep in late) and im now just a walking zombie with really bad morning breath.  i have on monkey slippers and a blue fuzzy clouded robe (a vision of pure sexy). but no voices, no real cognitive thought process, its that space before the thoughts of the day and my world open up and hit me with the vengeance of its broken flood gate. so, im kind of just enjoying the calm before the storm.

what is thursday going to look like for me? will i be productive? will i feel accomplished? why do we get more eye boogers on some days more than others? i need to get gas, im running on empty. i need to do cardio. i gotta pay bills. i should write a song.

so here i am. the flood gate is slowly opening. shit. so much for the little “Space”. for all of you who are ahead of me with your thoughts already rushing in-we have reached thursday. but this is your day. this is my day. and at least today im going to carve it out the exact way i want it to look and feel-because i can.

you can.



oh, thursday, i will smile in spite of your start…..

so, last night i go to dinner with friends. i left my car parked on the street in front of my place. after dinner, my friend’s dad says, “hey nat, don’t forget to move your car to your spot in the back”. so, i do so…

in the back, there are 3 designated parking spaces for the tenants of the 4-plex. well, one of the other tenants took it upon himself (again…i’ll get to that) to block the back parking area. so, now i cant get to my allotted space, AND there are to be only 3 cars back there. now, had i have been able to get my car back there it would’ve made 4. you do the math, the guy who blocked parked one of his extra cars back there.

so-i block everyone in. i’m not gonna risk getting my car broken into, dinged, banged on the street if i really dont have to.

cut to-i got the shittiest sleep because i anticipated them having to take their kids to school and i was still home because i had no early clients so i knew i would be awakened.

*i apologize if this is excruciatingly boring to you, but this has been an ongoing saga for me since i moved in in september. and if you dont live in california (LA to be exact) you may not be able to appreciate the importance of parking. it is like air. (well, that was a little dramatic, but almost that).

this place that i live in is so beautiful! i have french windows everywhere, hardwood floors, crown molding…it’s a 1920’s spanish-style’s not a castle by any means but its my home. i have made it my home. the energy is so good inside. and most importantly, i’m happy there. so it sucks to have even just one downside here because for me, it’s perfect.

there are 4 units and the other 3 are occupied by family members of the owners, then there’s lil ol’ me. so, by me blocking everyone in, i wasnt fucking over innocent by-standers. they all know the parking drama i have faced and are actually on my side. they have had to reprimand this grown man so many times regarding this parking.

now-i’m pissed.

as i go downstairs after he banged on my door at 7:35 this am, i decide to take pics with my phone.

he threatened to tow my car-good luck with all that.

hmmmm, now because of that, i’m not only dealing with parking issues that are unnecessary, i am now also being harassed for something he is at fault for…..

so, here’s where you come in. first off- if you rent and you have issues, you would be so amazed at the rights we have. the rules seem to have actually been put into place for our protection. so if you didnt know that, that’s your free nugget for today…

lastly, i just want to say thanks for being my documented audience today, thursday ,february 19th. you are my witnesses. thanks.

otherwise, my life is so sweet.
