Over the past few years of diving into Jungian Psychology I’ve realized that it has, in turn, shaped much of the understanding of psychology we have today and much of my own understanding of how I view myself and humanity. The most frustrating part I see when I read online in places like Reddit or…Read More

The Discipline Gap.
I didn’t really plan on writing about this book, The Confidence Gap, and it’s not because the information in it wasn’t valuable, but to me, it just wasn’t anything new. This is in no way to sound snobbish, but I’ve read (more than I can remember really) so many books that talk about confidence, motivation,…Read More
What You Can Learn From Crime and Punishment
There’s a handful of books that will eternally go down as the “Greatest Books of All-Time”, one of them, undoubtedly being Dostoevsky’s Crime And Punishment. If you’ve not already recognized the title, I’m sure the name of the book at least sounds familiar. And if you are familiar, you’ll know there are hundreds even thousands…Read More
Beyond Order by Jordan Peterson. Worth the Hype?
It has been quite a long time since I’ve done a book review. And that’s not to say I’ve not finished any books recently, because I have, and many of which I would have loved to sit down and write something about, but I just didn’t feel that push to do it. I’m not sure…Read More
Why Can’t I Keep My Room Clean?
For as long as I can remember, I am and have always been unorganized, at least, to the uninformed viewer looking in. My desk at work is messy. My desk at home is messy. My room is messy. My living room is messy. My bathroom is messy. My kitchen is messy. It’s all messy. And…Read More
An Honest Conversation With Myself
Today is February 28th, 2021, also known as the very last day of the second month of the year (if it’s not a leap year). What’s significant about this day? It’s a day where 80-90% of people who embarked on their “New Year’s Resolution” have now officially put it off till next year. From my…Read More
The Road Less Travelled isn’t always the empty one.
If you read the title of this post, and you thought to yourself, “That quote sounds familiar”, you would be right. (Bonus points if you can name the recent book that I took it from.) I’ll reveal the title at the end, but if you already know it, then you’ll probably know where I’m going…Read More
Too Much of a Good Thing. Do I deserve this?
For as long as I can remember, I’ve held a mindset that I believe is not only a toxic mindset but one that many of us, maybe even most of us, share. That mindset would be: If things have been going good for too long, something bad is about to happen. Now, what makes this…Read More
Your Life is Boring, and So is Mine.
There’s a strange thing about life that I feel is universally felt, but ironically, hardly ever talked about. It’s a thing all of us can relate to, but we rarely explicitly acknowledge it to others. You know what that is? Life is boring for the average person. It’s not even a hard pill to swallow,…Read More
Life Has A Way Of Working Itself Out
It’s been a while since I wrote on here, and I’m not even trying to make this post particularly long. I’ve just realized that since my life has begun to improve, almost with inverse correlation has the time I’ve spent reflecting. Funny enough, the reason for me want to write comes from a podcast I…Read More
