1. "It is difficult to change our lives because we constantly tell ourselves stories about who we are and what we’re capable of. However, your story is often changing, so you may feel compelled not to mention anything until it is certain or has already happened; we aren’t something, until we are."
    — 

    Sarah Kathleen Peck offers some advice on answering the dreaded “So, what do you do?” question. 

    Also see Philippa Perry on how revising that inner storytelling keeps us sane and Timothy Wilson on why it’s the root of psychological change.

  2. "I have a nervous breakdown in the film and in one scene I get to stand at the top of the stairs waving an empty sherry bottle which is, of course, a typical scene from my daily life, so isn’t much of a stretch."

  9. In a fit of insomnia fueled Facebook browsing, I started thinking about how I have these two or three faces that I make when my picture is being taken.  They’re my “attractive” faces, and they don’t actually represent me at all.

    I mean, I make all kinds of faces in life and on stage, most of them unattractive.

    Since I wasn’t sleeping anyway, it seemed COMPLETELY LOGICAL to me that I should take 100 photos of myself making faces and try to balance out the record a bit.

    You know, a fun insomnia project.
