Question of the Week #196

You have arranged an evening with a friend, but on the day preceding your date a special opportunity arises to do something much more exciting. How would you handle the situation? Knowing myself the way I do... I'd probably do neither. At least, I'd want to do neither. Being social? Doing exciting things? That doesn't sound … Continue reading Question of the Week #196

What Immune System?

I had a lot of plans this weekend. I was planning to move (again). I was planning to donate blood. I was planning to write blog posts. Those plans have changed. Because I'm sick (again).

I'm here … Continue reading How To Be Perpetually Early

Day Twenty Nine

My Hopes, Dreams, and Plans for the Next 365 Days Hmm... hopes... dreams... plans... That sounds like a lot of work. I mean, you wanna make God laugh, tell Him your plans, am I right? Look, I'm not a fan of making plans. I don't want to make wild claims that I'll be living in … Continue reading Day Twenty Nine

The Plan

John Lennon said, "Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans." I pretty much feel that I lead a fairly simple life. I'm not one to go through each day and plan out what's going to happen. In the past, I've tried to do this. I even went to the store and … Continue reading The Plan
