On the 2nd Day of Blogmas…

Did you know that yesterday was National Christmas Lights Day? Man... there's a day for all the things. Anyway, it's fitting that a friend from work shared an infographic with a helpful list of electrical safety tips for the home and office. I mean, sure it's fun to watch Clark Griswold hang 25,000 twinkling lights … Continue reading On the 2nd Day of Blogmas…


Thank You for Your Service

Today is Veterans Day in the United States. It's a day in which we take time to honor the men and women who have served in the military. It's a day that I'm pretty sure a lot of us just take for granted. Sorry, that was my dominant, cynical side talking. I'd like to hope … Continue reading Thank You for Your Service

"Where were you when...?" There are a number of moments throughout history that seem to mark the time for generations. They're the moments that are seared into our minds. We'll never forget where we were or what we were doing or who we were with when we heard or saw the tragic news. Those who … Continue reading 9/11 at 20

I Do Not Like My Life Very Much Right Now

First, let me state for the record: I am in no way in any sort of physical danger. What follows is a very un-put-together series of thoughts that basically amount to me trying to make sense of the emotional and psychological trauma that day-to-day life has had in store for me recently. Again, there is … Continue reading I Do Not Like My Life Very Much Right Now

No Movie Today…

This week's movie is supposed to be The Third Man. But I haven't watched it yet. And I'm not in the mood to watch it yet. I don't know what the deal is. It's like I'm in a funk today. I'm stressed out about work. I'm anxious over a potential change that I'd kind of … Continue reading No Movie Today…


What’s your response when someone you love is hurting? The pain I’m referring to isn’t a physical one. It’s not as if you just saw your best friend trip over their own feet and skin their knee. If it were me watching that happen, there’s a good chance I’d laugh. Sure, I’d ask if they … Continue reading Pain

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


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
