Because she likes uplifting music by people like Elliot Smith (suicide) and Joy Division (more suicide), taking her to see a band called Negative Approach seemed like the logical progression in her musical education. 
I slept restlessly for 10-and-a-half hours on Sunday night. The cat jumped on my face several times and my girlfriend was snoring. I don’t know what time I finally fell asleep but I woke up bleary eyed at about 9:30 a.m.
I work at a bakery full time. It’s hard work, and my arms have gotten very toned during the past five months, which is cool. I also get to wear a bandana which I’ve always wanted to do. 
A friend and I were loafing around and trying to decide whether to go see “Joker” on Sunday, because, I don’t know, why not? 
I resisted taking photos for newspapers for the longest time. My reasons varied but mostly centered around the strongly held conviction that I was already doing one job for you, and not getting paid enough. I’m not doing two.
