Cold, But Only Just

The chill breeze is light but I’m in shorts, so I don’t miss it. I like the cold today, not love, but 24/7/365 I’d rather be freezing my ass off than sweating my balls off.

Day 13: Part One

So now I’m sitting on aluminum bleacher on the track at the Middle School eating leftover Chinese I reheated before the 2 second drive over here. Two days ago I was game for a run, but we’re all cooped up here so it was helpful to the roommates to take one with me. I turn…

Ink

The truth is, I’d rather be writing this on a typewriter. Don’t worry, I’d scan it in and share it here still. There’s something different about physically writing, a more satisfactory feeling of creativity. Writing a letter, my guided hand staining a piece of paper specifically to express myself in a way that an easily…

The Well

The weather is no concern, it’s Friday night and we’re here. Cheap hot chocolate in to-go cups big enough to drink a little and add enough vodka for a buzz without it showing up on your breath. The Well isn’t really a well, it’s a decorative one. A little more than 4ft from the ground…

The Perks of Standing Up

There’s been a huge push over the past couple of years for standing desks in the workplace. Little did I know how much it would have an effect on even my at-home business of podcasting and blogging, as well as my hobbies! You can’t deny the positive effects of a standing desk in your average…

Yummy Mistakes

Every once in a while, mid-task, an idea will pop into my head along the lines of “ooo what if I do it THIS way instead”. Such an idea took place on Sunday night, on a hot griddle, while preparing protein pancakes for the week. What if I just made a big-ass pancake all at…

The Princess & The Ocean (In Places #1)

I have always been in love with the ocean. There’s something about it that calls to me and comforts me. People of a certain belief will tell you it’s cause I’m an “Aquarius” or something about the way I grew up, but no matter the reason, it’s there and it’s strong. The list of things…

In Places

A few years ago I started a photo series called “In Places”. I’d be somewhere, spot a neat shot or have an idea pop into my head, then set up my phone in some handy way (or ask somebody to take it) and get the picture. Most of them are on my Instagram, some of…

Thank You Places

Once again, and not for the last time, I’m lining up in a darkened hallway that runs along side the elevated audience at the theater. Looking forward, the silhouettes of my co-performers are illuminated by the stage lights. The play has started and our entrance moments away. I say nothing in this scene aside from…
