Something I recently noticed about myself is that I tend to look for inspiration on the internet. I search and dig for clues as to what My Next Opportunity should be based on articles I read or successful strangers I stumble upon through podcasts and videos. There have been countless leads I've found through the … Continue reading You won’t find it like that
It seems like I should write about the fact that I'm helping move my sister into her apartment tomorrow for her senior year of college. Or that I'm going to a narcolepsy conference this weekend (I'm excited for this - I learned such a great deal at the one last year and hope the same … Continue reading What do I want?
Not long after publishing two days ago, I got my first like. There's always that giddy feeling of someone else acknowledging whatever you just threw out on the internet. Before long, there was another one. More affirmation! And then a third, a fourth - I found myself going back and forth between clicking the little … Continue reading Chasing stats and other distractions
I decided it was time for a change, because I'm not going anywhere for the time being. That means new layout, new post, new tagline that I'll change when I come up with something better... and taking my (full) name off of what I'm writing because, although I'm aware anyone with enough time could track … Continue reading A new look doesn’t change how loud my keyboard is…

Beyond the fact that I hate searching out stock photos just to get some clicks, but I also intensely desire having a visual of some sort (if it's my own). Thus, a lion drawing, sketched from a picture... I did not take. Silent nearly 6 … Continue reading All in Good Time
In the last installment of this series, I started the post in a similar identical fashion, down to the header 2 lead-in. You should go take a look; reading it, I want to pat 01/02/16 me on the head like a knowing granny and tell her it's cute that she's just "going to see where … Continue reading Another New Year Manifesto
If it weren't for words, how many wars, ranging from spats between neighbors to global entanglements, could be avoided?
Now, moments of clarity when I started to understand a bit more about the housing crisis. Mood: ominous clouds on a highway. I watched The Big Short last night, on Thanksgiving ironically enough. Why ironic? Well, if you haven't seen the movie (which is also morbidly humorous), it's about the housing crisis. You know, that period … Continue reading Takeaways from the Great Recession
I'm deciding what to do with this space. Because right now it's just a mish-mosh. Kind of like my life. Feels like it's on the verge of changing, but not quite there. I've been throwing myself in a number of directions, hoping something sticks. It feels inauthentic to be casually re-posting articles I write for … Continue reading Hello .blog
