Originally, I thought “meh, I’ve seen these things before. They’re annoying but it won’t be too bad”. This past week, itContinue reading “Mix & Match Monday: OK, These Cicadas Suck”

Taking a Step Back From Sports

I’ve always loved sports. I played several of them as a kid, watch them on a regular basis and at times growing up, they were my biggest concern.

30 Thoughts Before 30: #21: “Why Do I Even Still Have a Facebook?”

I made a Facebook account in 2008 and other than my first Gmail account, it’s one I have had the longest. Remember the days when you were forced to post a response after “is”?

30 Thoughts Before 30: #22: “What Kind of Uncle Should I Be?”

Back in March, my sister gave birth to her first child. With that, I became Uncle Sean and my sisters became aunts.
