Agreeing – The Most Mythical of Things

As someone who tends to ride somewhere along the middle of everything when it comes to politics, religion, and whatever else, I’ve often found myself in a place where I typically can’t find a single person who agrees with me. Like, while it’s possible for me to find someone who will agree with me on some things, it generally doesn’t take me very long to take an agreeable conversation and turn it into something where that person thinks I’m way off base on everything.

Escaping The Rock

So, since we’re finally in the new year, and I’ve mentioned a few times how I’ve been looking toward the future, it turns out that now is the perfect time to start making some strategies for how I’m going to live my life now that 2022 is upon us. 2022 is a huge year, I think for all of us, especially if we can manage to end the pandemic. But even if we don’t, this is my last year of school.

Where We’re Going, We Don’t Need Roads, but Maybe Anxiety Meds?

As we are now in the first week of 2022, it’s easy for most of us to start looking toward the future. For those of us who have a big year in store, like for me, finishing school, releasing a new book, production of a new play I wrote, and a few things I can’t actually reveal on here yet, there’s a lot to look forward to.

New Year’s Resolutions

Since I talked earlier this week about how New Year’s resolutions can be triggering at the start of a new year when you realize how far you are from the goal you set for yourself 365 days prior, I thought I’d talk a little bit more about resolutions in general.

I don’t typically do them.

Murder Mystery Update

Hey folks!

You may or may not be aware that over the past couple of years, I’ve added writing plays into my repertoire. And while I’ve love to tell you that I’ve been writing the next big thing that will some day grace the stages of Broadway, the truth is that I’ve actually just been writing these goofy little dinner theatre style murder mysteries. You may be familiar with the style of show. Tony and Tina’s Wedding was a big example of this type of performance a number of years ago that theatre groups all over the country were raving about, although it’s a script that has very little substance and a ton of goofy improv.

Have you Checked on your Mental Health Lately?

As we’re in the thick of the holiday season right now, I figured I should take a moment to discuss all those terrible things too many of us go through during this period of the year. Because, look, mental health is a serious thing we all need to be concerned about, and it’s simply not something we talk about nearly enough. In fact, until very recently, it was incredibly taboo to even think about, much less have open and honest conversations regarding.

Putting the X Back in Christmas

Since I’ve somehow found myself spending most of last week talking about the Christmas season, it feels like I should probably spend a second or two talking about the whole “reason for the season” aspect of it all, even if we’re already outside of the actual Christmas week thing.

Christmas Eve…

Christmas Eve…

What to write about Christmas Eve…

So, yeah, it’s the day before Christmas. And, well, that means that while you’re reading this, I’m frantically trying to find a way to stop having to clean and help prep for the party we’re throwing at our house tonight in order to hide outside for the majority of a party with my in-laws that involves a lot of yelling because there’s far too many children and at least one deaf person in the house.

It gets loud.
