Different Seasons, Indifferent Friends

I don't want to say I'm super organized when it comes to my plan for blog posts, even though it might seem that way to some. Especially when I reveal what I'm about to reveal. I keep an open Excel spreadsheet that tracks upcoming blog posts and the dates on which those posts will go … Continue reading Different Seasons, Indifferent Friends

Absurd

I could air grievances based on the random absurdities I constantly find my life bombarded with. It would be cathartic. But I don’t know if that’s the right way to do things. So what if I just take a look at myself and examine my own expectations and actions. What is it that I bring … Continue reading Absurd

To Mask or Not to Mask?

That seems to be the question now, doesn't it? Because so many Americans are on their way to being fully vaccinated, the Centers for Disease Control have recently decided that the public mask mandate may no longer be necessary. Of course, there is a caveat. The recommendation is that if you are fully vaccinated, you … Continue reading To Mask or Not to Mask?

No Worries

Most people I know worry more than I do. I’m generally not a worrier. In fact, when problems come along, I probably don’t worry enough about them. But maybe that’s a good thing. It’s not that I don’t get stressed out over stuff. If you’ve been reading this blog for just about any length of … Continue reading No Worries

There Was a Time…

When I was younger, I liked to think of myself as a patriotic individual. And it's possible that, as a child, I didn't fully understand what it meant to be a patriot. As a child, my room was decorated in red, white, and blue. I loved to read about American history. I loved the United … Continue reading There Was a Time…

Juneteenth

Instead of what I had planned for today's post, I wanted to share this video that shares a piece of American history that I never found in the history books I had growing up in school. It's titled Why Juneteenth Isn't a National Holiday and Why It Should Be. Please watch this and be educated. … Continue reading Juneteenth

People are the Worst

This is the conclusion I've reached. Disclaimer: I'm not sure where I'm gonna go with this. I'm mostly trying to make sense of some of the things I'm feeling. Yesterday, I made the mistake of turning on the news for the first time in, probably, about two weeks. Man, did I pick a day to … Continue reading People are the Worst

Ten Gallons

Kids, I have been a fairly regular blood donor since I was a freshman in college. It started with a bloodmobile that would show up on Bluefield College's campus once each semester. So, back then, I would donate roughly twice a year. You know, once each semester. After college, I did a better job of … Continue reading Ten Gallons

Thank You Notes

Under normal circumstances, it would be safe to say that these are very uncertain times in the life of our country. But these are not normal circumstances. It's safe to say that these are very uncertain times in the life of our planet. So I thought I'd take some time to say thank you to … Continue reading Thank You Notes

I Don’t Know…

I've had a pretty good streak going. I've posted something every day so far in 2020. And I really didn't want to end the streak. So here's a post. But, honestly, after what I posted yesterday, I just don't have it in me. You know? I don't know what to write about. I'm just numb. … Continue reading I Don’t Know…
