Into the Light

I want to apologize to my followers for the several old posts they received from this website a week ago. I was doing some major remodeling lately, as I will soon begin a photography course, and I hoped to create a nice place to feature some of my “homework”.  During this process, I  struggled with the question of…

The Day I Packed My PS4

  My bio describes me as “a happy nomad”, which is true. There’s been a certain amount of excitement each time I’ve dragged out the suitcases… Except for the time I had to travel out-of-state to finalize personal business with my ex. I promise there was NOTHING I looked forward to on that trip. Otherwise I’ve been the eternal optimist, focused on the good…

Dear Diary

I lost my diary. Okay, it’s not a diary—it’s a journal. What’s the difference? Nothing, really. It just sounds better for those of us who are over the age of 13. Anyway, to get back on topic, my journal is missing. I’m not talking an “oops I misplaced it, and need to retrace my steps” missing. I’m…

The Intervention

In a previous post, I mentioned I have developed quite an addiction to interest in self-help books. You see, becoming a healthy, happy person is a priority—something I work at every day. A few months ago, I increased my efforts by adding a number of recommended books to my library. Then I started reading. And reading, and reading. And reading. In fact,…

I’m Sorry. I’m Sorry. I’m Sorry.

Status: Single

My ex used to test my loyalty by asking, “If I die, how long would you wait to marry someone else?” Seriously, how stupid did I look? This was clearly nothing but a trap—a “tell me what I want to hear, or I’ll make your life a living hell” game. Knowing this, I would always paste a…

The Sun’ll Come Out Tomorrow

Hello and welcome! I suppose I could have started out with something a little nicer than a picture of a ratty doormat. Sorry. I’ll try to do better next time. Anyway, my dad used to have a saying: “Life sucks, and then you die.” Yup, that was my dad… a colorful character who didn’t always have the…
