Running Relationship

Running is a relationship. There are good days, and there are bad days, and if you get lazy in the relationship, you end up missing out on a lot of the fun and benefits of it. I fell out of love with running in 2010. I achieved my goal. 2:50:18. 220 lbs – which that […]

Be Kind

Be kind. Isn’t that phrase something that is repeated so often to children growing up? I was watching Patton Oswalt’s latest stand-up special, Annihilation, this past week and he takes a decent amount of time to address something that has been on everyone’s minds: how is he coping since the death of his wife?

The Big Move

I dislike chaos. Lately, I find this to be the status of my life, but I believe that’s solely because I’ve been traveling a lot for work and I’m also trying to pack up another apartment to move to another one. I think I’ve found a “home.” It’s not a house or anything. I don’t […]

Do What You Love

There are times I’m often annoyed when people will send me messages like this on Facebook: Hey – uh, why are you always sharing stuff about Zelda? Aren’t you a little old for that? No. I am old enough and wise enough to not judge someone else’s passions. Is it childish to be a fan […]

Balance

I have no clue how some people balance their lives. I’m a single adult and find myself struggling to accomplish the few things I want to accomplish in a day, week, or month. Sure, some things are done out of necessity: being a parent, working, being a spouse, sleeping. But not all of those apply […]
