Day: 8819 – Slowing down

I haven’t blogged in a little while. A lot has happened in the last three weeks. I moved out of my house and into my own apartment again. I now have my own pet, a cat named Bebo (who lived with me before I moved to Springfield). And since making the move to live by … Continue reading

Day 8766 – 24 and Gratitude

24 years ago at 4:53am, I entered the world. It’s weird to think that I’m 24 years old now. A lot has happened for me in the last year. New house, new job, new hair. Some of it was good, and some was bad. But a year of learned lessons and life experiences has made me a more … Continue reading

Fresh Start

Five days ago marked my second year in Springfield. Three days from today I start another round of college classes. This will be my first semester as a creative writing major. I made the switch over the summer. I wish I had switched sooner. The truth was that I wasn’t enjoying my technical writing classes … Continue reading

“Right now, life is perfect.”

Lately I’ve been thinking about a series of commercials I saw when I was younger. It always started with “Ahead of them…” and would list something boring or unpleasant, and then would say “behind them…” and also list something boring or unpleasant. I remember one of those commericals going like this…. A man and woman … Continue reading
