This Was Supposed To Be Simple (A Gift)

This was supposed to be simple.

In the end, I guess it was not.

As I write this it’s the day before Christmas eve. If you’re reading this now, happy holidays. If you’re reading this six months from now, happy June.

This Was Supposed To Be Simple is a gift. A collection. An anthology. It’s nothing fancy, but it took a while to make. If you think about it, it almost took six months.

2009 has been an amazing year for me. I’ve had low moments, and I’ve had high moments. I’ve met some amazing people. I’ve lived memories that I’ll never forget. I achieved life long goals. I’ve tried new things. I quit two jobs and packed up and moved pretty far away.

It’s been the best year of my life.

During all of that I’ve been writing constantly. Not everything I’ve written has been brilliant, but there are some pieces that I’m pretty damn proud of.

And thats what’s here.

I’ve been so inspired this year. Much thanks to Amanda Palmer, Kevin Barnes, Miranda July, Elyse Jordan, Will Ward, Erica Schreiner, and everyone who reads this blog.

So  now that all of that is out of the way, here is This Was Supposed To Be Simple. Some of the content has been posted on this blog before, some of it has not. It’s a PDF file, and you should print it out – or if you prefer read it on your computer. Staple it together, regift it, do as you please.

Just enjoy.

Update: On January 14th 2010 I have uploaded an updated version of This Was Supposed To Be Simple! It includes corrected typos and a new story! Enjoy!
