Aches & Pains, and Philosophical Ranting To Later Follow

I know. I’m getting really bad at this, but the amount of work there is to do is killing me. Quality over quantity, my friends. I have been flicking ideas about left and right, but I do have a development for you all! I have started filming a documentary! It’s about a subject that hits […]

Back From The Road: Part 3–“Virginia”

After two nights in L’argo, we left at a decent hour in the morning, heading to Williamsburg/Richmond, Virginia. We went to the hotel, which, while beautiful on the outside, was actually quite odd inside. The lobby was inviting, as were the staff, but the doors to the room took more effort to open than any […]

Back From The Road: Part 2–“Letter To The President”

  Following a very inspirational trip to Wilmington (seriously–wrote two sets of song lyrics on the drive), with a quick stop in Virginia, we made it to L’argo, Maryland. We checked in to the hotel, got situated, and I went down to the pool, desperate to move my muscles in some form. After swimming 210 […]

Back From The Road: Part 1–“I Don’t Wanna Be”

Last Sunday, I embarked on a road trip with my grandparents and family friend, which proved to be quite interesting. The first stop on the trip was the place I’d requested: Wilmington, North Carolina. As a huge fan of One Tree Hill, I have wanted to go there since I was eight or nine. Finally, […]

Hammers & Strings, Gears & Things (an Email From The Past, an Idea For The Future)

Trying to write. Cheers to that! My mind is finally moving with ideas. The gears are turning and I’m losing sleep thinking of it all. It all hit yesterday, like a train on a track. There is a contest I have been wanting to enter, which requires me to do a cover of a song, […]

Closing The Door To Open a Window (Hopefully)

  Last week, I got a call from the college I was supposed to be attending and they were talking about returning the money my mom had already paid, as well as whether or not I was certain I wouldn’t be attending. “We want you to have all the necessary information in order to make […]

(Goonies) Never Say Die in This Heart of Darkness

“The mind of man is capable of anything–because everything is in it, all the past as well as all the future.” -Marlow in Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness In the face of the unknown, humans display a typical instinct that’s needed for survival: fight or flight. Now that’s not to say when you’re truly frightened […]

A Life Lesson a Day Keeps Your Dreams From Running Away.

While developing through life, we all go through many rituals; some are natural, like puberty, or religious, like bah mitzvah, or even social…like prom. I always said I’d never go. Ever. In fact, I was adamant that I would do anything but go to prom. However, I have decided to, especially considering how many people […]
