Cincinnati: One Year Later

You always grow familiar with a certain place after you have lived there for some time. For over two years, the rural Oklahoma town of Woodward, a place I never thought I would venture to before the summer of 2016, was my home for work, where I learned to appreciate the small town life afterContinue reading “Cincinnati: One Year Later”

30 Thoughts Before 30: #14-#10

#14: What was so good about “Game of Thrones”? I just didn’t get the hype around this show. I didn’t read the books and even when I got HBO almost two years ago, I never felt the need to catch up and become a part of the hype. To be honest, I was tuning intoContinue reading “30 Thoughts Before 30: #14-#10”

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”? Surely, you’re parents don’t know, because they’re the latest to join the site and have kind of ruined it for thoseContinue reading “30 Thoughts Before 30: #21: “Why Do I Even Still Have a Facebook?””

30 Thoughts Before 30: #24: “I Don’t Mind ‘Friends’ Now”

Growing up, I was far too young to get into “Friends” during its original run on NBC. I was also reluctant to give it a chance during reruns on cable. But I must admit, I have found myself watching the show on-and-off again with my weird work hours and having days off on weekdays. Also,Continue reading “30 Thoughts Before 30: #24: “I Don’t Mind ‘Friends’ Now””

30 Thoughts Before 30: #25: “I Like Naps Now”

I used to hate taking naps as a little kid. I didn’t like the idea of sleeping for an hour in the afternoon. It was one of the few contested moments of childhood between my mom and I. As I got older, I realized the nap was to give her a break from me andContinue reading “30 Thoughts Before 30: #25: “I Like Naps Now””

30 Thoughts Before 30: #27: “I Might Try Poetry”

I started this blog to explore the different facets of my writing abilities: Some are good and others can use some work. One genre I have heard that is creative and therapeutic for some is poetry. Life is pretty complex, especially for someone like me who is at an age where there are endings andContinue reading “30 Thoughts Before 30: #27: “I Might Try Poetry””

30 Thoughts Before 30: #28: “We Might Be Too Old For Facebook. Or Maybe Not?”

I remember when I first joined Facebook. It was June 2008 and I had just graduated from high school. You know, as a way to keep in touch with those fellow students and make friends with people I would meet in college (I never met EVERY person I friended when I was in college), butContinue reading “30 Thoughts Before 30: #28: “We Might Be Too Old For Facebook.

Things I Know Very Little (But Pretend to Know) About: Insurance

It’s good to have insurance. I just learned that recently. For the most part, I have been a pretty good driver, but I had to file my first accident claim a couple days ago and it was a learning experience. My dad is an insurance agent, which is good since I tend to have questionsContinue reading “Things I Know Very Little (But Pretend to Know) About: Insurance”
