A LOOK
INSIDE MY HEAD

When I was only ten, I learned how to type on a manual typewriter. A-S-D-F...J-K-L-;...since then, I’ve written over 2,000 blogs and enjoy sharing my words with others. 

As a writer, you see the world around you as a story waiting to be told. Every experience acts as an actor for this beautiful story we’re fortunate enough to call “life.” I hope you appreciate my writing as much as I’ve had, living the story. 

Wite Rhabbit

Writing
What we want is different than what we need. Unless we are dying, we always have what we need. Unless we are dead, we have always gotten what we need. Air, water, food. That is all. Given the right climate, we do not even need clothing or shelter. Circumstances complicate.

Rediscovery

Writing
Recently, I have been discovering many new things, places, experiences, and people. Rather than feel as if I am somehow coming closer to knowing more, I am forced to acknowledge just how little it is that I do know. Thinking of a quote, which detailed the infinite nature of the.

Coma

Writing
"I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine." What the world needs is not more followers, or people who have chosen to surrender their soul/mind to collective groupthink. Groupthink.

Checkpoint

Writing
Sometimes we need a little reminder that we are stepping out of line. Other times, we dont' want to face the reality of this, so we hide to 'protect' ourselves from facing the truth. Today was a day like this for me, as i was forced to come to terms.

Hour One

Writing
There you have it. I just finished my last final and am set to graduate, this Sunday, from The Ohio State University. This chapter of my life is finally coming to a close. And I must say, it is a good feeling to finally be done. There is an element.

Awake

Writing
"Plaat! Wake up." Several years ago, I wrote an essay titled "Wake Up" which chronicled the details of my fraternity experience, seen through the eyes of a young man who was desperately searching in all the wrong places for truth, love, and identity. As a profanity-laced essay navigated through the.

The Ludus

Writing
The pursuit of glory is far more rewarding than the threatening consequences keeping many from ever obtaining it. Chase with vigor and see that this city can too be your own! Every day, my spirit leaps forward with great joy as I realize my fight is finally beginning to take.

sub-Human

Writing
Maybe we'll wake up someday and realize that we aren't who we thought we were. Perhaps we will see we weren't made of the stuff we thought we were. And maybe we'll realize everything we ever thought was actually quite wrong. Even the idea of a revelation of this nature.

Us Well

Writing
"The grandson tries to remember what the father tried to forget" A live devoid of adventure, I cannot imagine it. In fact, the possibility of living a life of serenity; clothed in tranquility and residing in calm, makes me want to vomit. Something I have learned about myself, recently, is.

The Sound

Writing
I'm reading a lot more about the problem our society seems to have with the notion of young men growing up into established men. 27 year-old adolescents seem to be a prevalent part of our society. What makes me sick is not the fact that such non-men exist, but that.
