200 Blog Posts and 13.1 Miles Later

You’re all still with me. Really? I had this idea as I noted that I was getting close to a 200th blog post. Only two or so years into my little home on the web, I realize that I’ve found what I love about doing this; they’re my thoughts, stories, and life, unfiltered. Pen to…

Remembering the beginnings

Something I have noticed far too much is that when we become great we stop doing the things that lead to our greatness. We spend so much time actually telling the world how great we are, or how we became great, but we never sustain those things which got us there. We abandon ourselves. This…

First, Last or Somewhere Else?

Lately I’d been giving a lot of thought to what’s been going on in my life. Recently, I’ve had a lot of change going on in my life and a lot of experiences you would call “lasts:” Last day at an old job. Last day in an old apartment. Last moment of friendship. (Used under…

Do you take the time?

I’ve had a great night tonight. Yes, I really have, minus the moment where I bounced my head off the cupboard because I was reading a tweet. Here’s my PSA for today. Don’t Cook and Tweet. I need to preface this; at any given day. My head bounces off of many things. This just happened…
