The Adventures of Luke Starkiller
One of the first movies I remember watching is The Empire Strikes Back. It was playing on the TV at daycare and although I was definitely interested enough in it to remember it being on the screen ~35 years after the fact, I also seem to remember not really paying attention to it. The Battle…
The Urge to Quit
Rehearsals for my newest play started recently. And I was convinced to not only act in it, but also to play the top billed character. A character who is written to be absolutely obnoxious. A character whose dialogue is intentionally bland and terrible. And as we went through the process of the first read thru…
My Battles with Segregation
I never really had a real concept of the existence of laundry until high school, when I was finally on my own, and that pile of stinky clothing in the corner of my room didn’t magically disappear and reappear folded in my dresser. Suddenly I was in this position where an entirely new task that…
The Challenge of Writing Prompts
Something I consider one of my personal skills is that I believe I can write up to 1000 words on any subject. In fact, it’s a little secret of mine that that’s often one of the things I challenge myself with here in this space. I once gave myself the challenge of writing a love…
‘Tis the Season…for sickness :(
Perhaps the one silver lining in the whole issue with 2020 being shut down from the world was that it was the first year in I can’t remember how long that I didn’t get a cold. The older I get, the worse my colds appear to be, so I was incredibly excited when I made…
My Thoughts about Mondays
Probably my most unpopular opinion is my attitude toward Mondays. There’s a part of me that actually likes them. That statement really undersells it. Mondays might be my favorite part of the week.
Although I like the fluidity of the English language and how it allows us to easily turn any word into a verb. I love how doing so causes absolutely no issues in translation and turning any noun into an action can be immediately understood by whomever we are talking to.
I Find the Talkers
As a young man, I didn’t really have that many friends. It wasn’t until I went to high school that I finally felt like I actually found myself, and at least partially because of that, finally found friends. It was at the same time that I learned people like to tell me stuff.
Can we Just Talk for a Moment about The Adventures of Pete and Pete?
While watching a documentary on the early years of the cable network Nickelodeon, I was reminded of one of my all time favorite shows, The Adventures of Pete and Pete. Sure, there’s a whole ton of shows that Nickelodeon produced during this period that probably did more toward defining me as a human than I…
Does Life Ever Slow Down?
Lately, I’ve been finding myself thinking about retirement, which is something I feel like I’m way too young to be considering at all, outside of, you know, how I should probably start saving up some money for it, I guess. But, the truth of the matter is, with how busy things have been as of…
