On Feeling Important

INTRODUCTIONI was watching a YouTube video that was a collection of TikTok shorts, where women talk about how awesome they are, and how they no longer need men. Their words were one thing, but their delivery was very peculiar. Their delivery, facial expressions, and posture told a different story of smug arrogance and a highContinue reading “On Feeling Important”

The Need to “Go Somewhere”

INTRODUCTIONOne has not truly lived until a person they’re dating turns to them one day and says that they are concerned that they don’t know where things are going. It’s got to “go somewhere,” they say. Today, I’d like to explore that idea. WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN FIVE YEARS?When I used to haveContinue reading “The Need to “Go Somewhere””

No More Waiting For It

INTRODUCTIONI can’t really say for certain just how much time I spent waiting for it. There was always something. The goals were sometimes big. For example, I remember being 12 years old and thinking about how I couldn’t wait until I was 16. That’s when I’d get my license, and maybe even buy a car.Continue reading “No More Waiting For It”

Finding Purpose [Is Purpose Necessary?]

INTRODUCTION“What IS my purpose in life, anyway?” I asked my therapist. She replied, “Your cats need you.” I scoffed, at least initially. When I looked at my cats, I felt way differently about that answer. Because, you know, they’ve got those big, pitiful giant shiny baby eyeballs. And for all that, of me, for whichContinue reading “Finding Purpose [Is Purpose Necessary?]”

Three Types of People Worth Remembering

INTRODUCTIONThis is something that I’ve been meaning to write for a while. My dilemma on this was whether to start off positive, or to end positive. Ultimately, I’ve decided to start off positive, since those are people deserving of my praise. As for the ending, let it serve as a warning. Let’s GOOOOOOO!!! 1 ofContinue reading “Three Types of People Worth Remembering”

Dying: You’re Doing It Right Now

IMPORTANT NOTE: It is important to understand what this IS, and what IS NOT. This is an entry about the process of death, and the acknowledgement of related processes that are not physical or biological. This IS NOT support or encouragement of taking one’s own life. If you are having those types of thoughts andContinue reading “Dying: You’re Doing It Right Now”

Success: It’s the Thrill of the Chase

“It’s not the kill… It’s the thrill of the chase.” I never had any question regarding what I wanted to do with my life. From the age of 18 months, when I first saw my uncle’s band, “The Sounder,” rehearsing at my grandmother’s house, I knew that I wanted to be a musician. My exposureContinue reading “Success: It’s the Thrill of the Chase”
