Backkk in the US of A

They say that time flies when you’re having fun and I think this extra-long-extendo weekend in Germany proved “them” right. Apparently, I’m back in the states now and the vacation is over and I have to go to work in the morning. Surprise! Time sped up and now life is boring again. Another sign of time flying: my facial hair…

Find Your Passion

I watched a video about living the life you want to live, etc. You know, crap about how you can get everything you want and need out of just appreciating every moment and seizing every day. Suffice it to say, I’ve been living like that ever since I can remember, so I was fairly unchanged by the melodramatic, hipster overtones…

On the Road Again

I’m going to Germany tomorrow. Heads up, everybody! Literally – look up! I will probably be in a very large airplane, flying over you.

And that was fairly routine by comparison to some of…

Tales from the Gym: Part 1

9 pm on a Thursday night and I’m heading down to the gym, ready to get my pump on, ready to work this sexy bod right out. Keys in one hand, book in the other, I’m…well, I’m going to walk briskly on the treadmill for 40 minutes while reading Let the Great World Spin, by Colum McCann. So maybe I’m…

An English Major Moment

Pardon the English major intrusion, but sometimes you read a book so good that you have to write about it. I spend a good deal of time contemplating why works of literature flourish or are forgotten. Partially, it’s so that when I someday bother to sit and write a novel, it’ll be the sort of novel that hits bestseller lists…
