Teenager Shmeenager

Growing up has its perks and it certainly has its downfalls. As a soon to be 26-year-old the dim light of adulthood is growing nearer every day. I find myself enjoying strange things that my 18-year-old self would make fun of me for. My days consist of events I never dreamed of and to top…

Rollin’ Down Highway 41

This will hold little significance to anyone reading but for me it’s the type of thing to raise goose bumps. I’m working on a project that has me reviewing the very beginning of my blog. In the midst of reflection it occurred to me that I didn’t put a lot of thought into the name of my blog;…

Start This – Stop That

Thanksgiving has passed, Christmas is gone and by the time you read this it will be the New Year. The Thanksgiving hype is to remind us to be thankful. The Christmas spirit is for giving, not receiving and the New Year promises personal improvement and a fresh start. With all these yearly inspirations to live a more…
