  • Grateful

    When in the throws of life, being bombarded from every direction, even the smallest of trials seem like an insurmountable task. It’s difficult to see all of the good all around us when all we see is challenges and evil surrounding us. Even though it is difficult to see the good, we have to look…

  • I Smell Something

    And it smells like bullshit. We all know someone that can tell a story. These stories seem too fantastical for our experiences. It’s one thing if this person is an elite military special-forces operator, but it’s quite another when it’s Bob from next door. I know this special-ops guy isn’t telling me shit. I know…

  • What is…

    I have always told my children, “It doesn’t matter what you think; it only matters what is.” In this day of social media, “fake news,” and so-called journalism, how are we supposed to know the truth? It’s a myth that news used to be unbiased. It’s impossible for people reporting on a story to be…

  • Life is a Challenge

    If anyone doesn’t think life is a challenge, they are either completely spoiled by luxury or are on some pretty amazing drugs. Life is constantly throwing challenges our way. It could be the weather, finances, family, friends, or a host of other challenges. Overcoming these can be taxing at best. Our perception on life can…

  • Common Sense Isn’t That Common

    That is a common phrase when people talk about dumb shit people do. This goes for everyone, regardless of your political association. Watching people on social media can easily prove this. Things get much more intricate when dealing with the economical impact of raising minimum wage compared to riding a skateboard down a steep hill…

  • The Next Step

    It is hard to think about the next step when you’re in the middle of chaos. It doesn’t help when my mind is cloudy due to being tired. I think I’ve been sleeping okay. I mean, I don’t wake up 30 times a night like I used to, but that is due to sleeping meds.…

  • Variants

    Some of the new shows and movies that have been coming out have been complete garbage. While a lot of people might think a show/movie is bad, I usually can still find some entertainment in them. It is rare for me to stop watching a movie because I find it so horrifically bad. Usually, I…

  • On a Razor’s Edge

    It seems like everything is on a razor’s edge these days. World peace, world war, AI taking over, people being stupid enough extinguish life on Earth, civil war, economic collapse, my sanity, etc… I do not know of anyone else going through as much as my family. Some of it is good, and some of…

  • The Bell Curve

    Life seems to drastically change for me quicker than woman changes her mind on what she wants to watch on TV. That’s not always such a bad thing. Today, I realized how different I am than most people. Most of learned about “The Bell Curve” in high school math and science. It’s discussed in many…

  • Arrogance is Lethal

    I loathe arrogance. If you want me to discard you like a piece of rotted trash, be arrogant. I want nothing to do with people who think they are better than anyone else. Yes, I go that far. I know that I am highly intelligent, and that isn’t because I think of myself that way;…
