Coffee Talk – Jan 2018

I’ve been watching a lot of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee lately. I caught a few episodes of the show several months ago, but now that the show is posted on Netflix, I’ve been binge watching a lot of it. The show is a simple talk/interview show where comedian Jerry Seinfeld picks up someone in…

I Think I Have a Hobby that has Taken Over my Brain

It was inevitable. I knew someday this would happen and I thought I was prepared, but the day has finally come. I will need to start a new journal. I’ve been keeping a daily journal since September 15th and it has become part of my routine. I love being able to go back and see…

Look at All the Words!

It’s official: we have words! After having trouble getting in front of my computer and making time to write at home, I finally hunkered down and did it. Stemming from the goals I set for myself at the beginning of the year, I’m on track to keep up with writing at least 20,000 words a…

Reality Wasn’t that Bad to Come Back to. Who Knew?

Now that the holidays are finished we must come back to reality. Schedules and routines wait for us behind that last day of New Year’s. Thankfully, things haven’t been as rough as I had thought they would be. Work has been relatively quiet with the odd meeting or project that needs some attention. I’ve could…

Plans for January and Beyond!

Going into 2018, I wanted to give myself a better shot at being more productive through the year. I had more consistency in journaling and keeping up with blog posts, but it was more reacting to the week and keeping up with the schedule I had made in my head. At the start of a…

Looking Ahead to 2018

After looking back at 2017, the next logical step is to look ahead to 2018. What do I want for myself? What do I want to change? What do I want to accomplish? Well, I’m glad you asked. Here’s a few thoughts on what I will set out to accomplish over the coming year. Keep…

So I’m Going Under the Knife. Probably.

This week has been a whirlwind. It’s a little sad when you sit down to cover a blog post that touches on some of the events that happened over the past few days and your mind goes blank. Thankfully, I’ve got a daily journal that keeps me on task. I’m a little into three months’…

Looking Back at 2017. So What’s the Verdict?

Today I took a moment to take stock of how my year has been. When I look back at 2017 I feel like it’s been one of my roughest years. I have a few points that I’m proud of or that were good things in my life, but It’s also been a low point for…

My Attempt to Write a Sonnet. Should be easy, right?

I’ve been on a bit of a poetry kick lately. I haven’t dropped this idea of a poetry collection that will one day grace the Wattpad app. In proper preparation, I’ve been looking at different poetry styles and structures, trying to decide which one(s) I want to use. The examples I’ve found so far on…

I was so gonna write Monday, but then…

I swear I thought I had posted something on Monday, but low and behold, I didn’t. My bad. Totally on me. Monday was kind of a rough day. Want to hear about it? Thanks. Pull up a seat. Work itself wasn’t too terrible. I got what I needed done for the day and my ongoing…

I Got Some Cool News Today

So something awesome happened today. I got a message from NY Literary Magazine that their 2017 edition of Erotic Poetry, Flames, was being released today. I had submitted a piece in for a contest via Writer’s Café last year and I won 2nd place, but when the magazine listed the winners for the anthology on…
