Give Early, Give Often

Here we are... another one of those days where things just didn't go as planned. Sorry... My plan was to write some more Friday Fiction since Mastermixmovies was kind enough to add another writing challenge last week. Unfortunately, as you can see, that's not happening today. I promise, I'll get to it next week. Today, … Continue reading Give Early, Give Often

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

Remember the Animator?

Did anyone else have one of these as a kid? I kind of feel like I was the only one... It was made by Ohio Art, the same company that produced the Etch A Sketch. You've gotta know what that is, right? The drawing toy that made it impossible to draw a circle. Anyway, this … Continue reading Remember the Animator?

Checking In

Hey, kids. How are y'all doing? No, really. How are y'all doing? The world is crazy right now and it can be super easy for us to go crazy right along with it. It's one thing for us to wish each other well, to stay healthy and safe during a pandemic like this. But all … Continue reading Checking In

We Are the World

This is actually a post I meant to write a long time ago. Back before I transitioned into one of the work from home masses, I was still driving around with my clients and listening to the radio. At that time, around mid-March, we were still on the cusp of understanding just how serious the … Continue reading We Are the World

Late to the Quarantine Party

For the last couple of weeks, as the rest of the United States has slowed to a crawl and been systematically shutting down, I've continued being in the world. Calm down, it's not because I'm being irresponsible and saying screw social distancing. It's because my job has been deemed essential. Because mental health doesn't really … Continue reading Late to the Quarantine Party

Cupcakes and Rainbows

Tuesday evening I was having a hard time coming up with something to blog about. I'm sticking with that whole blogging every day thing for as long as I can. I've still got a streak going and I just don't want to break it unless I absolutely have no choice. So I took to the … Continue reading Cupcakes and Rainbows

Pi Day

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the first 100 digits of π... 3.1415926535897932384626433832795028841971693993751058209749445923078164062862089986280348253421170679 At least, that's what the internet told me. So... Yeah... It's Pi Day and I don't have any pie to enjoy. But I don't feel like there's any point in going to the store right now to get some. Because if they … Continue reading Pi Day

Nobody in Authority Is Actually Helping

That post title is probably hyperbole. I hope it is, anyway. But this is where the super polarization that we're experiencing between political ideologies is completely to our detriment as a society. On the one hand, you have conservative leaders underplaying the coronavirus pandemic, warning that the media is feeding into an unnecessary panic. On … Continue reading Nobody in Authority Is Actually Helping

A Dream About the Moon

So... I had another weird dream again... This time, it was about as close to a lucid dream as I think I've ever experienced. You know what lucid dreaming is, right? If I understand correctly, it's basically where you are aware of your dream and can control what's going on. I imagine it's like being … Continue reading A Dream About the Moon
