Starting Over

What does it mean to “start over”? Like really, what do people mean when they say “I’m just gonna start over”. Now, whether that be with a new job, new relationship, new education path, it doesn’t really matter, it seems as though we hear those 2 words from ourselves and others whenever we find out…

Why Don’t Thing Work Out?

As I write this, there’s only one question that comes to mind. Why don’t things work out? Do you ever feel like that enough shit has happened in your life, enough people have hurt you, put you down, lied to you, or whatever it is, you feel like you deserve something to work out? And…

Everyone Is Alone

I’ve just finished up the book, Island, by Aldous Huxley, and I’ve gotta say, it’s been one of the most thought-provoking books I’ve read in a long time, possibly since the last Huxley book I read, A Brave New World, which I wrote a post about that here: A Brave New World. Anyway, there’s this scene towards the end…

People Are Weird.

The one thing I’ve learned over the past several months more than anything is this: People are weird. Now, this doesn’t seem like a surprising thing to say because let’s face it; people are weird.

And, well, we talked a lot, mostly about people, life, and things in general, often diving unusually…

Young, Dumb, and Stupid Decisions.

I haven’t written for over a month, almost 2 months, and I’m fully aware of this. I’ll just be transparent to whoever is reading this and say it’s because I really haven’t felt like writing. But I have my reason for this, too. In short, life is weird. I don’t really know how to say…

Portals Into the Past

I still don’t understand how a single picture, it can bring back so many memories. It’s such an odd thing. It’s almost like we forget we still have these memories locked away in our unconscious minds. We go on with our lives like it never happened and BAM, you go through an old picture album,…

The Metamorphosis

I recently finished a book, recommended by my friend, The Metamorphosis, by Franz Kafka. Although, I think I understood the message being portrayed in the story, I personally wouldn’t recommend it as a casual read. It’s definitely something, if you’re just looking for a good story, to avoid. Nevertheless, I still want to give my…

How to Fight Contempt.

They say, other than infidelity, that one of the most common, if not the most common reason of divorce has some sort of financial under-pinning to it, AKA money problems. If you or your spouse don’t know how to properly manage each others money, not to mention, as a single entity, a couple, then it’s…
