MoviePass Mania – A New Movie-going Adventure

I first heard about MoviePass about a year ago. I was browsing the internet and saw that you could watch a significant number of films each month, one per day, for the price of $50 per month. This seemed like a great concept, but it was a bit out of my price range. While I….

Choose Your Family

My friend Michael recently wrote about The Family We Choose. This hit extremely close to home for me. A few months ago, I wrote a blog called My 90th Birthday Party. I ended up splitting it into two separate parts, but I never ended up publishing the second part. I figure this would be a….

Be Intentional

Posted in Uncategorized

This post will be somewhat short, but I am aiming to blog on a more consistent basis from now on!   I am an avid believer in living a no frills lifestyle. I prefer to not play games when it comes to relationships: in both my friendships and romantic endeavors. I tell it like it….

Freelancing and the Future

Last week I took an important first-step in my life. I dusted off that Elance profile of mine and started applying for writing jobs.   That’s right; I realized that a job isn’t just going to fall into my lap. I owed it to myself to give it a try.   I decided to stalk….

Sleeping Around The World

Today wraps up the first week at my new job. My new position is doing technical support at Secure Check Cashing Systems. My wage is less than my previous job and I am working the same number of hours. The main difference is the timing of those hours. Instead of a night shift, I now….

Fighting Loneliness

“Yeah, so whether you know this or not, I really look up to you. From reading some of your posts (having 18 different addresses) and seeing your pictures and your passion for sports, you are an idol of what I want to be like when I grow up. How do you do it? How do….

My Fall Into The Travel Lifestyle

Last summer, when discussing life goals, things we want from life, and places we’d like to travel, a friend compared me to a “lost puppy.” The idea that I see something that looks intriguing and chase it for a short while until I see something else that draws my interest. Like a puppy chasing butterflies,….

Remembering My Grandfather

Something that sticks out in my mind when I think about my grandfather is a habit he had while watching television,. Every time he watched a show, he would mute the tv during the commercials. He did this religiously. He loved conversation He loved talking to his family and friends about anything going on in….
