Flatter me, and I may not believe you. Criticize me, and I may not like you. Ignore me, and I may not forgive you. Encourage me, and I will not forget you. Love me and I may be forced to love you.

William Arthur Ward

Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable.

Captains Log #2

Hey Journal! Wow.  I can’t put into words the amount of fun I’ve had taking a pen to paper and tapping away at the keyboard. There’s so much you can do with writing. So much opportunity and experiences have been laid out in front of me. Write a blog? Write a comic? Write a book? Write a script? Write a song? Write a Video Skit?  If you apply your self with […]

Why give it a go?

Have you ever thought of trying something new and you hesitated? Maybe you thought to yourself…Me do that? No way! That won’t work.   There’s something to be said about taking a vision & giving it everything you got. You may not accomplish what you set out to, or the end result isn’t what you expected. But at the end of it all, there’s something special in the process. A different […]

Why think, Push? [ Persist Until Sh*t Happens]

I love mnemonics. They are catchy, quick and can snap you back into a winning mindset. Here’s one that recently came to mind. PUSH. Persist Until Shit Happens. Think of the expression “Get out there and Make Shit Happen”. Excuse the language but I tried “Special”. It didn’t seem to fit. Neither did “something”. It lacks the umph. The only word that expresses the meaning I intend is the word […]

Why practice patience? Good things come to those who wait.

****Disclaimer**** This post actually tested my own patience. At first, I found myself not able to string words together on the page. With my mind blank and fingers unable to strike away at the keys, I started to become frustrated and flustered. Even when my fingers started to find a rhythm, the words never seemed to add up. I started to ask “Why am I even writing about this?”, “Should […]

Words

Words tell a million stories, some believable and some absurd, scaring you to the core with just one well-placed word. Words can define you or undermine you, be true or false. Words can kill you and hurt you inside as they punish you and deride, kicking you in the side, beating over you like a tide giving you nowhere to hide. Words can sooth…

Branching Out & Breaking Your Mold

If there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s that I love individuality. When I see someone strive to be their own person, I can’t help but smile that entire day. It’s magical. I absolutely love seeing people choose to be different. My go-to, generic advice has always been: “work on yourself”. Sometimes my friends will come to me with problems and my answer to them almost always is […]

Summer Days And What To Do With Them

This’ll be a pretty straightforward one, so sit back, relax, and (hopefully) enjoy! Over here in the Pacific Northwest, the days have been getting significantly longer and people have been complaining less and less about the all-too-familiar Washington rain. I can’t complain one bit. The state’s beautiful with terrible weather, so you can imagine how things go when the clouds decide to stay home. So this is only my second […]

Why do we dream? A tribute to the dreamer.

We are primed to dream very early on in life. The first time was probably when you were asked: “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Do you remember? It may have been something along the lines of “An Astronaut!” ,”A Firefighter!” or even “Just like you Dad!”. However, you answered I’m sure the thought brought a wide grin to your face. Why? The answer is your […]

Finding Something You Love

Finding your passion(s), at least to me, is a huge part of enjoying life. Personally, I used to feel pretty empty and unproductive before I actually went out and tried to find something I enjoyed. Everyone’s different, so take everything I have to say with a grain of salt. This is just a little bit of my life and what worked for me. Hopefully, something sticks and you find a […]

Captain’s Log #1

Dear Journal, I’m sorry I haven’t written to you in awhile. I know you must miss the feel of graphite against your pages. It’s been twenty-three days, four hours, and twenty-seven minutes since I started a new chapter in my life. “Rise and Fall of a blog” Ha! I only added the fall part for insurance. Who knows how long this mighty ship will sail? Only time will tell. Though […]
