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.
Anticipation, by itself, it neither a good or bad thing. Anticipation for a dentist appointment isn’t likely to be enjoyed, but anticipation for something you’ve been looking forward to can be a great feeling. Like a great movie reveal, or “hero shot”. "Hero Shot": an establishing scene in a movie, often (but not always) done … Continue reading My Top 5 “Hero Shots”
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….
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.
My wife and I had a big Batman movie marathon recently. I didn’t think to start with the original Batman movie from 1989, I actually forgot I owned it to be honest. I don’t own any of the other Batman movies until we get to Batman Begins, which made me feel a bit old when … Continue reading Overthinking It: Robin’s Suit in BvS
