The Hobbit & The Expanse

During the COVID lockdown, and the long wait for my trade training, there has been little for me to do other than watch TV, and try to find the discipline to either workout or clean the house….. So naturally I’ve been watching more TV than I really should be. The long hours of streaming have … Continue reading The Hobbit & The Expanse

Creation is a Force of Will.

One of my absolute favourite super heroes is Green Lantern. For those that don’t know Green Lantern is basically a space cop. The Green Lantern Corps is an organization that patrols the 3600 sectors of space (2 GL’s per sector) and keeps the peace. The fact that there are 7200 Green Lanterns is one of … Continue reading Creation is a Force of Will.

A Good Year is not JUST a Good Year….

Recently we watched Soul on Disney+, which was a fantastic movie. It’s a really deep movie too. For a guy like me, that is searching desperately for something in his life, but is unsure what it is, the movie hits pretty hard. Without spoiling anything, the main plot is about a guy looking for meaning, … Continue reading A Good Year is not JUST a Good Year….

My Struggle and My Legacy.

It feels like ages that end in zero are landmark ages. I don’t think I've ever heard someone say that they want to achieve certain goals before they hit 27, or 33; its always 30, or 40, or in my case: 50. The setting of goals requires a certain amount of self reflection and as … Continue reading My Struggle and My Legacy.

We’ve Forgotten How to Think

The Internet is amazing. The entirety of human knowledge in your pocket is an advantage that few people can comprehend, and one that most people take for granted! It does however come with drawbacks.

Is Life Supposed to Suck?

Every life has challenges. We often look at them as the low points in our lives, things to avoid, but should we? There is an argument that the challenges we face in our lives give our lives meaning. I don’t know about everyone else, but I tend to look back at my life and remember … Continue reading Is Life Supposed to Suck?

Why Exercise Helps Stress

Fight or Flight; it's built into our bodies. Its instinctual, and unless you are really self aware its impossible to control it. Your mind perceives a threat and it sends messages down your sympathetic nervous system to get ready for a massive physical exertion. Your body floods with adrenaline, your heart rate and breathing accelerate, … Continue reading Why Exercise Helps Stress

The Fitness Industry is Crap

Before joining the military, my wife was a personal trainer, for years before that she was interested in fitness and health. All told, she’s been self educating and “proper” educating about fitness for almost 25 years. I’ve absorbed a lot just through association, and I can say with confidence there is really only one absolute … Continue reading The Fitness Industry is Crap

Wake Me When September Ends!

September has been a rough month for me. The last several months have been rough, but September was particularly rough. At the end of August we went on a bit of a holiday, and had a really nice time. We went to a friends cabin and spent a few days there, just my wife and … Continue reading Wake Me When September Ends!
