A change will come…

I’ve had a lot of change happen all at once. Not that I haven’t had time to prepare for the changes, they’ve just all happened at the same time. Used under creative commons, Thank you AlicePopkorn2!

I hate you. This is why.

I hate you. I really do, and here some of the reasons why: (Used under creative commons, thank you Loving Earth!) You challenge me, you never let me rest on my heels and say I can’t. You make me strive to be better, better than I think I can be. You know I’m stronger, stronger…

Do You Believe then Belong or the reverse?

I heard an interesting generational statement not to long ago. It referenced the Older Generation’s ability to belong to something then believe in something, the person went on to say that my generation has to be convinced they believe something before they’re willing to belong. This stuck in my craw. I’ve been pondering that for…

Are You Talkin’ to Me?

I’ve had an interesting day. Sure I did some of the normal things: shopping, moving boxes, preparing for the next week, the usual things. Those aren’t the interesting parts of my day, I won’t bore you with those details, (I know, usual, right?) Today I was invited to go to church with some friends. Normally,…

Music: Muse

The exits aren’t clearly marked, there’s rain coming down, my windshield wipers are barely working and there’s a semi-truck behind…

Just a song…

Heard this song today, was reminded of so much. Just thought I would share it.

I’ve been listening to some music a lot lately, and while I know people know that I’m a big fan of some artists, I have a special affinity for Garbage. I found their music when I was going through a pretty interesting time in my life and they became the de-facto soundtrack to my early…

The Fall

I like to be that guy. I like to be the guy you can rely on. I like to be the guy who people have confidence in, who people look to. I’m not good at leaning on others. I usually like to deal with life as it comes. When it rains, I hear the music…

Good Customer Service: America’s Tire

I’m heading to Seattle tomorrow. It’s about a 3 hour drive and my tires were starting to mimic that of a newborn’s behind. Well, that and the last time I drove to the Emerald city, one of my tires decided to belch while on I-5. (Used under Creative Commons, thanks Gerardov!) I didn’t want that…
