Planning to pack my bags…

how does one really narrow down a place to land when the land is so expansive and the spaces are WIDE OPEN?

Quote of the Day – George Weinberg on Not Giving Up

When things are hardest, that’s when you have to press on, cause that means you’re in the lowest portion of the arc and things are going to get better. A good friend of mine is going through some difficult surgery today. I hope the surgeon’s hands are guided with skill and maybe even a little…

Quote of the Day – Stephen Sondheim on Writing

Now that school is out for the summer, I really hope to get back to writing, that is, should I have any adventures worth writing. You’ll see them. 🙂 The worst thing you can do is censor yourself as the pencil hits the paper. You must not edit until you get it all on paper….

What Goes Unsaid.

There’s so much power in tone. Maybe too much. You probably wouldn’t imagine this, but I’m an over-analyzer, an over-thinker, and sometimes even an over-feeler. As you’ve seen from my other blog: http://www.schnik.it I love words. Words, have so much power, but to a thinker, the tone sometimes matters more. I’ve been having a hard…

Quote of the Day – Kurt Vonnegut on Laughter

I was in a conversation on twitter yesterday with a very nasty and pretentious woman. She was eager to butt into a conversation not of her making, with no idea who the participants were, and proceeded to be vengeful and abrasive when faced with the slightest hint of push back to her commentary. She immediately…

Quote of the Day – Bill Watterson on Thought

Bill Watterson, arguably, had one of the greater impacts on my life growing up. Every day I grabbed my parent’s newspaper and stretched out with the funny section, always saving my favorite, Calvin and Hobbes, for the last. As I grew up, I branched out from the funnies, to the living section, then the metro,…

To The Moon, Alice.

*blows off the dust* I haven’t blogged in 2012 over here. Wow. (I’ve been focused on posting a daily quote and daily photo over at schnik.it I could say that I have been extremely busy, and It would be true, but I looked back and I have written 14 other posts about being busy in…

What My Blog Says About Me.

Lets be honest. I don’t put a whole lot of thought into my blog. I don’t have an editorial strategy of what I’m going to post. I do, however, put a lot of “me” into this space. The sub-theme, “Heaping Scoops Of My Brain,” isn’t just clever witticism, This space is really all about what…

Crossroads. Help Me, Pathfinder!

I’m at a crossroad with my education. I am getting close to graduating with my Associates of Business Administration degree. (YAY!) However, I am also looking at what the future holds for me. (Used via Creative Commons, thank you dsmoljanovic!) I am a storyteller, not as in, “the fish was this big” stories, but more…

National Coming Out Day?

It’s once again National Coming Out Day. I meet this day with trepidation every year because I think that many people feel pressured to come out and do so fairly publicly. Coming out is a very personal decision. It’s not one that should be taken lightly, it’s ok to be who you are but it’s…
