Days Gone Bye
Hey everyone, I’m typing this while sitting in bed, while my cat, Splotchy, makes strange noises and enjoys her senile behavior. This is reminiscent of when I was younger. Her story is as much mine as it is about what’s happened to me and my family. Splotchy was born in April 1995, when I was about 7 years old. Her mother, Chili (the family cat at the time), had relations with some...
The Final Lament
Hey, So I’m moving tomorrow. It’s official. I feel fucked up about so much stuff going on in my life in such a short span of time. I didn’t want all of this, nor did I deserve it, but I have to live with it. Living with pain has become natural to me. It’s a sad fact. It’s almost comfortable because it’s been sitting for so long. But I have to let it go. I...
Moving is a bitch.
It’s actually a bitch and a half. I’ve done it 23, about to be 24 times in my 22 year life span. I don’t stay in one place for too long, and it’s not usually by choice. If I had it my way, I would stay in the same place for a very long time. A home should be a pillar or stability, not a place for constant IN-stability. I will be packing tomorrow, and moving into a hotel,...

Betrayed! aka The Last Straw
Hey peeps, I went to have lunch with my mom earlier, and had a discussion about something that is about to happen which I, myself, am responsible for. The other night, I was tweeting about my roommate and about his girlfriend watching American Idol. Normally, this would not cause any problems, however the girlfriend actually READ the tweets I wrote, which really were not that bad in comparison...
Knowledge is Power
In all things, we must have faith and confidence to do what we think is right. Our instinct is usually always correct depending on the context of the situation, and the factors. At times, we make mistakes which lead to us feeling guilt and pitying ourselves. This is counter-productive. I’ve been there, and I’m still there. But this is a poison to our minds, our bodies, and to our overall quality...
mishyz asked: Why don't you move to the cooler coast (east) so that I can like actually hang out with you???
writewendy asked: I'm so proud of you! I wish I had the strength to face my demons so many years ago. I respect you more the you know. You're very inspirational and extremely smart! This is not a question, just a comment.
Yo, So I keep seeing these blogs about “Truthful Tuesday” but to be completely honest (ironically enough), I ALWAYS tell the truth. But if there is one thing I have to be truthful about, it’s that I had a MASSIVE crush on someone while I was going through my shit last year and earlier this year. I’ve let them go because I know I’m not the one, but I’m still...

Day and Night: A Poem
Day and Night The loss of words, the loss of time Extraction seems hopeless But there’s an unwillingness to give up Flowing day to night The path slows, but leads in many directions Which to choose? Starting something new But what? The question is the answer Day to Night Night brings gloom A certain calmness fills the air But the looming fact remains What is this place? Night...

Energy Drinks: Cause and Effect
Hey folks, I’m a big fan of Red Bull and Monster, and though I don’t drink them every day, I have been drinking them more and more recently. That being said, I have noticed a few things: 1) When taking anti-depressants, Energy Drinks cause your mental state to diminish, making negative thoughts more prevalent. 2) They make your heart race. 3) If you drink too many of them, it can...

I just had a dream...
I went to go see a movie at a Cineplex, but it wasn’t a movie, it was a music video that a friend of mine was in. These two girls decided to sit next time me, approaching me on either side. They knew who I was for some reason, and explained that they had read my writing in the LA times. I feel asleep in the seat and woke up again when the trailers began. A trailer came on, and the star of...
Hey everyone, I wrote a little scene. I don’t really plan on using it for anything, but I wanted to see if I could try and write 2 scenes worth or so of dialogue and get some feedback. I don’t have a title for it, but the plot is two friends having a conversation at a bar, which then goes outside, and gets a little mushy. I was thinking about The Social Network when I was writing it...
Outcast (The Jaime Berger Blogs: Part One)
Folks, as a writer and a creative person, sometimes, I have problems getting motivated. Other times, I just have lack of ideas, or things just aren’t clicking. Today, I had a thought. Charles Bukowski was a famous author who used a persona for the main character of his novels, though this persona was really just him using a false name and changing the names of those involved. Some of the...
I finally let everything go from 2010. All the anger, all the lust, all the negative shit. It’s gone. It feels good. - H
Howdy, So this last week, despite my awesome blog postings and such, the beginning of the healing process over my dad, attaining a good grip on my mental state, and being over a week sober, I realize that I basically did what I did for most of last year: nothing. Granted, people would tell me that I haven’t done NOTHING, I have done something. The problem is, I don’t feel like...
The Battle: A Short Story
The Battle: A short story by Henry Abrams The air cooled around the two warriors as they stared each other down, neither of them yielding to the other. One, draped in shadowy black flames, eyes sanguine as a pool of spilled blood, the other, covered so brightly in white cloth, eyes blackened, filled with determination. The dark one sneered at his opponent,...
The Hand That Feeds
Hey y’all, I woke up this morning in a state of disarray and shock. I dreamed that I was talking to my best friend on the phone while vomiting/spitting up blood over the toilet bowl. It kept going and going, and I thought I was going to die. I thought that because I had smoked so much, I had gotten internal bleeding in my lungs and my capillaries were closing and/or swollen. But then, when...
I hope this gets to you
LEBOWSKI: It’s funny. I can look back on a life of achievement, on challenges met, competitors bested, obstacles overcome. I’ve accomplished more than most men, and without the use of my legs. What… What makes a man, Mr. Lebowski? DUDE: Dude. LEBOWSKI: Huh? DUDE: I don’t know, sir. LEBOWSKI: Is it… is it, being prepared to do the right thing? Whatever the...
