Well, the year is done, and the inevitable “Year in Review”, and “New Year, New You” posts are coming. I have a blog (that I occasionally write in), so I figured I would jump in and contribute. A bit over a year ago, I was in a rough place. Thanks to COVID I had been … Continue reading Oh Look!! Another “Year In Review” Blog!!
I spend way, way, WAY too much time on my phone, doing pointless things. It frustrates me greatly. I know that I should spend less time on it than I do, but somehow I always end up picking up my phone and staring at social media. My phone. (Kingsman is an AMAZING movie!) I’m not … Continue reading My Phone is Not my Friend.
While I was in Borden for my training, Zack Snyder's Justice League was released for streaming. Being in Borden and not having access to a decent tv set up, I had to wait several months to view it. Four hours is a bit of a haul for a movie, but to me it didn't feel … Continue reading Feminism, Sexism, & Blurry Lines
I love a good, thought provoking quote. I look for quotes everywhere, and have found many. (The Word document that I keep them all in is 26 pages, and always getting longer.) I find most on a couple of Instagram pages I follow dedicated to Stoics, and thinkers in general; but I’ve found good quotes … Continue reading The Meaning of Life.
Wow, its been so long since my last post I had to look the date up. (Somewhat humorously, as I write this, its been exactly 4 months.) Now, according to Motivational Speaker Law, I must have some sort of melt down, and feel super bad about being a lazy ass and not doing anything for … Continue reading Taking Breaks, and James Bond
I profess my love for Superman on a somewhat regular basis. Though I can’t fly, or lift a car over my head, I try to uphold the ideals he stands for daily: helping those in need, doing the right thing, being an inspiration to others. I think the world would be a much better place … Continue reading Overthinking It: Superman’s Fighting Skills – Appropriate or Lame?
Been quite a bit of “radio silence” on my blog lately, but there is a reason for that: I’m back to life in the military. I've reported to school and have been doing actual learning for a few days. Relearning how to soldier is a bit anxiety inducing, since (generally) military instructors are a rather … Continue reading “He Who Has a Why…”
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
One of the things my wife and I like to do when we’re looking for something to put on for noise is head to the Marvel section of Disney+, pick a number, scroll over that many, and hit play. Yesterday that landed us on Iron Man 3. I had forgotten the scene when Tony’s house … Continue reading Overthinking It: Rescue Armour
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.
