The Universe Wants Me To Be Angry

January 10, 2013 at 1:18 am

A fit of consciousness struck me over the holiday and I can’t shake it.  Mainly because it came from an unlikely source, within my own clan. I was watching some YouTube videos with my daughter.  Specifically, videos on how to create different crafts using duct tape.  Did you even know […]

Winning Isn’t Everything. No, Really. It Isn’t.

November 15, 2012 at 2:57 pm

“Winning isn’t everything, it’s the only thing.” Vince Lombardi’s famous quote will always resonate with me.  As a kid, I played travel hockey and some football through school.  Every coach I remember pushed winning.  Win! Or else! Nothing felt worse than losing back then. I say back then because I […]

Cancel It

I’m a runner.  When I get into a routine or begin training for a race, it becomes a passion of mine. I need it.  Like a drug. Some people don’t understand runners.  They laugh when you try to explain “the high.”  When you tell them you’re about to run 26.2 […]

I was 10 years old.  That would put the year at 1985 or so.  I was a pretty happy kid..  My parents weren’t alcoholics.  There weren’t any instances of abuse.  I was an only child and my mother couldn’t have been more protective of me.  We were a family of […]

Taking Stock-An Apology

September 17, 2012 at 2:08 pm

I’d like to apologize.  I’ve been extremely selfish and petty for the last few months. If I’m being brutally honest with you, the purpose of this site was to be a creative outlet and networking tool.  Why would someone who is already in a creative field need another outlet? Surely […]
