  • A Quote Post 01-31-2022

    I enjoy a good quote! I’m going to start sharing some of my favorites and I may add my thoughts or I may just post the quote as-is. Everyone has their unique origin story; their success is not proof of your failure. This was adapted from a post over on Medium(( about comparing oneself just […]

  • On Death and Preparing For Death

    Can you really ever prepare yourself for your own death? Honestly, I don’t know. I think you can prepare things so that when you do die it’s easier for your loved ones. I shared a story about my Dad paying for his casket, funeral and showing me where all his important documents were. But does […]

  • Goodbye Spotify

    Joe Rogan’s misinformation and lies are not “presenting another side”. They are harmful to society and have been refuted by medical professionals(( along with a few famous folks (( I canceled my Spotify account today and deleted the app off my phone. I won’t be going back to them until they have some sort of […]

  • New Laptop!

    I recently picked up a new laptop for myself! My last one still works except for the battery, which doesn’t last very long and isn’t easily replaceable. For the last decade or more I’ve been a Linux-only user. I won’t go into the Windows vs Linux vs Mac because I honestly don’t care anymore! I’ve […]

  • Blogging vs Microblogging

    Something I’ve noticed as I get back into this blogging thing is most blogs I come across don’t post random things. I would call most of what I’ve seen articles instead of posts. They’re structured and most are trying to provide some kind of information. I guess I should include my own blog in this […]

  • On Waking Up Early

    I’ve recently changed up my morning routine which used to include setting my alarm for 0515 and then hitting snooze for at least an hour. This was much improved over my previous routine which was waking up at the very last minute and then rushing to get the dog walked, exercise done, showered, breakfast all […]

  • These Posts Suck

    Look, I’m not a writer. I have written in the past and not to brag but a story I wrote in 7th grade did win 1st prize in a regional competition **knocks the dust off shoulder**. Every time I start a new blog I get extremely self-conscious. I start asking myself things like “who are […]

  • What Is Considered Social Media?

    I’ve been challenged by what is and what isn’t social media. A few definitions from Merriam-Webster. Definition of social media : forms of electronic communication (such as websites for social networking and microblogging) through which users create online communities to share information, ideas, personal messages, and other content (such as videos) (( Definition of social […]

  • Social Media Break: Day 7

    I had to count the days to make sure it had only been a week. It feels like it has been so much longer. I have been making an effort to be more aware of time and how I’m spending it. I’m using timers a lot for things like watching tv so that I realize […]

  • My Word of the Year for 2022

    I’ve never tried to “theme” a year by one word, or by any words to be honest. I’ve never been good at setting goals, actually, I take that back. I’m *excellent* at setting goals but not great at following through with them! I stopped setting goals many years ago because at that time I didn’t […]
