You’re an the open wound I want to keep open, I’m not allowing a skin to heal over it. It’s like I need to keep it open, it hurts like hell to leave it alone, more so than letting the scab grow over it. I know you say that we broke up at Christmas but … Read more The Rush
Hey all! So just to fill you all in, this is the first post of a mini weekly series that I’m creating documenting my accomplishments and shortcomings of training for my first half marathon. Yes, a half marathon. 13.1 miles of crazy, but considering it’s only a half marathon, I would like to think that … Read more Preface – Week One
Watching the latest interview documentary with Jim Carry on Netflix. This is a man I’ve enjoyed seeing in all movies since I was a kid.

I’m sure for some it’s irrelevant … Read more It’s National Coming Out Day Today!
Sooo…it’s happening again. People are outraged at the protesting of the U.S. National Anthem. I’ve read articles about people video taping (is that still a relevant phrase?) themselves burning jerseys and season tickets that they bought…and I can’t help but think of how all this proves is their ignorance of what’s really going on in … Read more Lets Talk: Irony Laced Ignorance
Baby we’re the only ones.
Sitting, working on my seventh chapter for MSB (ideas for chapter eight happening at the same time) and I realized something. I was wrong in a previous posting.
