I ruined my third draft of the Americas map because I got impatient and decided that I could go ahead and paint it too early. Then I fucked up an essay I was working on by trying to convert it and instead ended up deleting the thing - even after it asked me if I was sure because reading the god-damned warnings that pop up is for losers. It's been a week filled with little moments like these that aren't a big deal, in and of themselves, but that add up to this overwhelming feeling that life just fucking sucks right now. Ah well, Sunday comes soon and things will be better.
The Sin Eater series is an opportunity for each of us, you and me, to recognize our sins and failures. Each week I kick it off by discussing something I do wrong, that I have failed at, or that I find reproachful in myself. Then anyone who wants to can join in and post their own 'sins' either through the use of their own username or anonymously in the comments below (DO NOT POST ANYTHING ILLEGAL AND THAT WILL GET YOU IN TROUBLE WITH THE LAW).The idea behind this project is to humanize ourselves (so take your self-righteous judgments and pronouncements and shove them right up your ass). It's also a place to help each of us to let go of the 'sins' that have been dominating our lives and recognize them for what they are: the simple human frailties that all of us struggle with daily. This series is the place where you can speak honestly and let your frailties be devoured by the internet gods.
