A Blog I Update Every Now and Then

Being Stuck In The Current of Life

Stuck in the wonderful traffic of Pittsburgh, driving through the Squirrel Hill Tunnel and the Fort Pitt Tunnel while listening to “As The Rush Comes” and various mixes. The driver in front of me is smoking and the putrid burnt smell comes into the car. There’s a plane flying some stupid ad behind it (how economical and profitable are those silly gimmicks anyway?). Probably exploiting all the traffic to try and make money, so the business owner doesn’t have to…

Sleeping and Resting Versus. Being Awake and Producing

Tonight, I fight the desire to stay awake and work on a few things. I thought of things for my self-help book and had to write them down. That tendency happened often when I was a hardcore writer way back. I don’t write as often creatively anymore, but I do plan on getting back to it. The desire to write won out, even though I was lying in bed and had chewed a melatonin Olly gummy. Being excited about ideas…

The Future: Forks In The Road and Things That Could Be | Grad School and Personal Projects

Happiness comes from many different mediums, and one of those is being excited about the future. Everyone is always happy in the moment when they know they have something fun to look forward to in the month. I applied to grad schools about a month ago — I totally forgot how long and tedious of a process applying to colleges can be. Whether applying to graduate school was easier or more difficult than applying to undergraduate school, I’m not sure…

Rethinking One’s Life Before It’s Too Late

During my lunch break, as I usually do, I was reading (this time browsing on Facebook), but then I thought… Why don’t I do something more useful and productive instead, like a blog post, which is what I’m now doing as I finish a pizza in one hand and type this on my phone with another. With the pizza all nommed nommed, I can now finish this blog post with two hands (or two thumbs).   I was thinking about,…

To Work Or Not To Work, That Is The Question…And Due To Formed Habits

I recently transferred my hosting platform for my sites, so I finally can post again! I shut off my laptop planning to go to bed… But a thought was nagging me to make a blog post, especially since I can make one again. I’m pretty sure I saw a vagrant or homeless person on my way home from work. He had two big bags of his stuff. It makes me appreciative of the small things. Being able to be housed.…

GRE Exam Practice: Issue Essay and Argument Essay

Hey, everyone! I’m taking the GRE Exam on Tuesday (super fun!… kinda), and I’ve been taking practice exams. I just completed two practice essays, and I thought I’d share them. These essays need to be written in 30 minutes, so there may be some minor errors and logical fallacies, but they’re pretty much accurate. With that much time, the brain is going to reach for whatever examples it knows and use those ones immediately, because there’s not TOO much time…

I Moved Into an Apartment! | First Move | Part 1

When it came time to finally move, I was very nervous and scared. But everything has turned out okay. I had a great deal of help from family, be it them lending their services, vehicle, or giving away things we needed for our first move. It was really incredible and awesome how much help we received. If it weren’t for all that help, it would have been a bad move. Here is the post that I wrote on Facebook after…

Update: What Have I Been Up To? | Job, Apartment, Product Design, Writing, YouTubing/Streaming, GRE Studying…

Heeellllloooooooo! It’s been quite a well since I posted, I believe. I’m afraid to look at the date of my most recent post, and the one before that. Anyway, I’m writing something again! So, what have I been up to? Glad I asked! Well, I’ve recently been enjoying my new job as an offline captioner — this has been my favorite job hands-down. Amazing people. Awesome job work. Awesome environment. It’s one of those jobs that make you realize that…

Setting and Developing Goals | What is your Life Purpose?

Haven’t posted in a while–been busy with YouTube and enjoying my new job as an Offline Captioner (LOVE IT!). So, to get where I am, I had to set goals. I thought it would be fun to share some of the goals I have written in the past. Here’s what I’ve had hung on my mirror for the past few months (from this writing of 3/14/16), which I looked at every now and then: Here is the current modified version…
