Living the Dream

Living the Dream

Over my life I’ve had many dreams, goals, desires, whatever you want to call them.  For the longest time it was my dream to serve in the military, that didn’t work out due to a medical denial.  It’s always been my dream to be an author and I guess I’m living that dream now (I have written a few books).  I’ve also had the dream of buying a plot of land and living off the grid, and I’m working on that dream as best I can.  There have been many others over the course of my life, from dreams of climbing Everest to dreams of hiking hundred mile treks.  Some I’ve fallen out of love with and others I’ve doubled down on.  One thing I realized though is that in order to ‘live the dream’ I need to take action, I need to always be living the dream.

Arresting People for Speech

Arresting People for Speech

Should someone get arrested for something they say?  The short answer is: it depends.  If someone says they are going to commit an act of terrorism or a crime then yes, they probably should be arrested as a precaution.  Investigate them a little and make sure there is no actual credible threat.  That really is the only time that someone should be arrested for what they say.  The reason I bring this up is because recently another person in Canada was arrested for hate speech.

Getting Distracted

Getting Distracted

It’s been a crazy few days in my world.  I’ve been super busy but somehow managed to get nothing done, I’m behind on my post writing, my Book Collector Club posting, my novel writing, my fitness, basically everything.  The problem is that I’ve been horrifically distracted with other projects, new projects that excited me before I realized how much time I was sinking into them and decided that I need to refocus on what I’m doing now.

How Can We Expect to Survive in a World Filled With Such Hate?

How Can We Expect to Survive in a World Filled With Such Hate?

I find myself asking this question a lot lately.  Why is there so much hate in the world?  Why does it seem like all we are good at is hate?  We’ve been conscious and intelligent animals for millennia now, how have we not figured it out?  Then I remember that there is an important word in that question, animals. We are still animals.  As much as we like to put on clothes and pretend otherwise we can’t escape it.  The amount of hate in the world only serves as a reminder of this fact. Continue reading →

A Real First Post

A Real First Post

I already wrote a kind of first post but that was more of a placeholder, this is a real first post.  For those that know me and that follow my writing you’ll know I’m not new to blogging.  I ran the now dead and gone “Mind Body Mash”, a blog that turned into a massive website spawning a (also dead) bookstore and a (never active) forum.  The blog started as a fitness / motivation blog but I also wanted a place to post on other topics, this made the blog lose its niche and turned it into a rambling mess.  I shut it down in 2016 after 3 years of low traffic and spending too much on hosting.
