Coming Back

I legitimately laughed out loud this morning when I realized my most recent blog post was about procrastination. Mostly because it was dated April 12, 2017. As in, it’s been more than four months since I last wrote a blog here. The bar graph representing page views in my analytics tab used to look like…

Don’t Wait

I’ve always been a good procrastinator. I get shit done and get it done well, but oftentimes I wait right up until my deadline to finish. Then there are the other times, where I finish (insert task here) with about a week to spare and it feels GREAT. On that note, I recently booked a…

Letting Go

This blog has focused pretty heavily on politics over the last six months or so. No surprise there. I write about what makes me think and feel, and that’s the only thing I’ll give Donald Trump credit for: pissing me right the hell off 24/7. Anyway, it’s been a while since my last blog and…

Women’s March

Last Saturday, I went to the Women’s March in San Francisco with one of my closest female friends. Many other awesome people I know were among the 100,000-person crowd. Earlier in the day, dozens of friends from around the country blew up my social media feeds with pictures, videos and posts from the marches they attended. It…

Fake News

Can we make one thing perfectly, crystal-fuckin-clear, please? Not. Every. Story. Is. Fake. News. It certainly exists, but that does not mean all news is fake by default. These days, it’s easy to dismiss a story that doesn’t agree with your views as “fake news” (our President-Elect does it all the time!), but that will…

Logic

Being logical is, by definition, thinking, saying or doing something sensible in a given scenario. For example, it is logical to close your windows if it starts to rain, lest you allow drops into your warm, dry house. It is logical for me to wear sunscreen to the beach because I know from experience that…

Better, Best

Many years ago, I had this silly little catch phrase that I’d use to make failures sting less: “Well, there’s always someone better and someone worse at _____ than you!” I thought it was so brilliant for a while there. See, you are reminded that even if you fail at something, you’re not the worst…

To Those Who Don’t Vote Like Me

Recently, I wrote a blog called To Those Who Don’t Look Like Me, pledging my physical, financial and vocal support in the wake of this hate-filled election. This version is for those who don’t vote like me (or at least didn’t for this election), specifically those who voted for Trump: To those who don’t vote like me, it’s…

To Those Who Don’t Look Like Me

To those who don’t look like me; to anyone who isn’t a straight, white, middle-class, American male. To those who don’t look like me, I’m really, truly sorry. I’m sorry I haven’t taken your grievances seriously enough while our country seemed to be moving in the right direction the last eight years. I’m sorry I…

Title Pending

Check it out! I’ve re-branded or whatever. I wanted to change the dynamic of my blog, because even though it’s the only thing I write for free, it’s my favorite! It’s where I put my personal thoughts down, only intending to share with friends and family. In short, it’s something I’m proud of and the old…

Passion

I used the word “passion” approximately 4,519 times in my last blog post. So, finally reading a story on a tab I had open for weeks was coincidental and timely. It was called: “7 Strange Questions That Help You Find Your Life Purpose.” I was immediately taken by this section of the introduction: Part of…

What You Love

Are you doing something you love? I love writing and traveling. Baseball and music. Meeting new people and exploring new places. How about you? Do you do the things on your list as much as possible?  Could you stand to do them more often? Pursue them more vigorously? I only ask, because if you don’t…
