Mid-Life Crisis

Mid-Life Crisis

Okay, have we done the mid-life crisis blog yet? No? Well then, here we go. So a while ago I turned 47. In this day and age with people living past a hundred, this should be right in the mid-life crisis wheelhouse, right? No divorce, no sports car, no big epic trek to find myself. […]

Phone Alone

Phone Alone

We all like our technology (i.e., phones, laptops, Netflix, etc.). But sometimes we get caught up, whether it’s FOMO, driving and texting, or just being absent in a room full of friends. I never noticed the problem…correction, I never let the problem bother me until recently. The other day my wife and daughter were on the […]

Second Time Around

Second Time Around

I have noticed as I’ve gotten older, that looking back and reflecting has become a hobby. I tend to tell the same stories over and over again, or I will reminisce with friends anytime we get together. Old stories have a way of comforting us, connecting us. It doesn’t help that I get Facebook reminders of memories of […]

Evolution for Kids Revisited

Evolution for Kids Revisited

Okay, this one is going to get a little weird but I’ve had a lot of time to think about where we are going, and what this existence of ours all means. Plus I’ve watched a lot of sci-fi flix and conspiracy theory documentaries. So let your freak flag fly and get ready for a […]

Virtual Reality, Insanity, Actuality

Virtual Reality, Insanity, Actuality

Last night I went to Ready Player One, that being said, let me explain a few things and come back to what I thought of the movie at the end of the blog. I’ve been waiting for this movie for a long time. After reading the book that Ernest Cline had created, I was lost […]

Who’s Your Data?

Who’s Your Data?

The other day I bought a wallet, it was from a company called Bellroy, they are a great product. Sleek, stylish and doesn’t make a lump in your pocket that throws out your back every time you sit down. I bought the card pocket, it’s a small wallet that suits my needs. I love their […]

Stay.

Stay.

Growing up and growing apart. Once best friends, now occasional texts to promise to get together. Loved ones separated by provinces, water, cities, and distance, find a common ground. Fate made us siblings, but hearts made us friends. The social landscape may change, but the people stay the same. Stay. Getting bigger, becoming a woman. […]

What I’ve Learned From Writing Over 200 Blog Posts

What I’ve Learned From Writing Over 200 Blog Posts

The last blog I wrote was my 200th post, I didn’t realize this until I had posted it. I had written a 100th blog post when I crossed that line, but I missed this milestone by one. In the beginning, I started slow and needed to find my footing. My brother had told me I […]

Positively Negative

Positively Negative

What is it about being negative that is so hard to shake? It’s like junk food for the social mind. People love to bitch. I have had issues in the past with being pessimistic. I still do. But I try and fight the urge to complain about stuff. But if you talk to my wife […]

Rooms

Rooms

I used to be more involved in social media. But things change and we get complacent, our priorities shift. It happens to everyone. We see our friends and family less and we tend to become a little more selfish and pull into our own little cocoons. This is normal. But it isn’t a way to live […]
