For those of us in California, today's the last day to register to vote for the primaries. Good idea to check your status and make sure everything looks good, or register if you need to!

I'm about a third of the way through Good Omens, and this is one of the extremely rare cases where I'll admit to being disappointed in myself for not getting into it the instant everyone else told me to.

For anyone who's used Audible before, can you help explain how the credit system works? Can I listen to multiple books one time each if I don't keep them (like a library) but only purchase to keep what I have credits for? Or can I only listen to what I have credits for at all? Just trying to figure out how much it'd be worth it, I can get through an audiobook in a day, maybe two on my commute, so if I'm out of books for the rest of the month after that, I'm not sure. :(

I listen a lot to podcasts. My favorite is Invisibilia - though Serial season one is also up there.

Woohoo, I have some cover art for future books! Ghost Walk, The Editor, and Trials of Time should all be coming in succession in the near future if all goes well (along with the two remaining books in The Dream Sanctum series once that's taken care of). Admittedly I've been slacking a little lately, so having this is providing some much-needed motivation.

Me too! I have to work hard to make sure the book lives up to the cover.

This box is so much bigger and heavier than I thought it would be, but boy is it a thing of beauty. I'm ready I'm ready.

Who would have thought that "sincerely held religious beliefs" and "bathroom debate" would one day be in the same sentence? This whole thing has gotten so out of hand it's almost funny. Almost.
Proposed state legislation would let students cite religious grounds to request a bathroom that bars transgender people.

Personally I think most places should have single-occupancy facilities. I have never understood how at our most vulnerable times we are expected to give up the most privacy.

Some of you might have wondered where on earth the PAS question from a few days ago came from. Originally I was going to use this as my persuasive speech topic and wanted to get as much feedback as possible, but I've since thought better of it. I'm not sure I could do a good enough job to make a speech for a grade on the subject. So I wrote about it instead, and in class I'm going to talk about something much more cheery (like capital punishment). But if you wanted my thoughts, or wanted to know why I'd ask such an oddly specific thing, this should explain it.
I recently asked some friends and followers what they thought about the concept of physician-assisted suicide when it came to the terminally ill and those suffering from incurable, severe pain. Mos…

I think you should have the right to choose, whether your terminally ill or not, if you want to live or die. Those who think they have the right to choose the time of your death are trying to dictate what you can or can not do with your own life. That is wrong on so many levels.

I love this so much. I've actually been watching both at the same time recently, so this is all the more fitting. But it's done so well.

Here's a question for you guys, I'd be interested to see what you guys think.

Do you support-physician assisted suicide in cases of terminal illness and severe chronic pain? Next, do you support it in cases where the patient suffers from depression?

If your answer changed from yes to no between the two, why? (I know this is a really broad question, but it's hard to write a question that accounts for all the specifics it deserves.)

I'm with +Rugger Ducky​ and +Rachel Blum​ on this.

Fundamentally, the only real control we have in life is life itself. This is the one intrinsic freedom, and I believe strongly that we should be able to exercise that freedom when and as we wish without outside interference.

I've suffered - in the most literal and damaging sense - from depression since I was eight years old. That year I hanged myself in my bedroom closet - unsuccessfully, for those who are bad at math. I'm now 48. I've spent forty years of occasional good days and uncountable very, very bad days that sometimes run to weeks or months. Medication and various therapies are not effective. I will always be like this, until I'm not like anything at all, and I mostly look forward to that day.

Chronic, recurrent depression is like being on fire: it's the only thing happening for as long as it's happening; it's the only thing that you can think about, if you can think at all; and making it stop is the only imaginable, acceptable outcome. In this way it mirrors chronic pain.

Making a crime of escaping this should itself be a crime. Denying anyone their final refuge from constant suffering is itself a form of torture.

Introduction
Hello! My name is Kay Solo, and if I had a dollar for every time I’ve been asked if I’m related to Han, I would have a lot of dollars.

I’m just someone who writes for a living, enjoys gaming more than is probably healthy and occasionally takes photographs. I edit, I do other stuff and now I’m blogging on WordPress, though my activity is anything but regular. I love exploring psychology, dreams and sleep, which is part of what inspired one of my book series, The Dream Sanctum. For work I ramble about politics and current events, and I have gotten a surprisingly low amount of hate mail as a result.

I live in Southern California, which means ten months of complaining about the heat, two months complaining about the cold and twelve months complaining about the traffic.

My dislike of the Oxford comma has earned me more enemies than any other opinion, but I hope you like what you see. Thanks for visiting!

You can also find me on Twitter and my personal website.
