Why The Obesity Epidemic Is a Thing

  Earlier today, I was thinking about something that plagues my mind frequently: obesity. Now, I want to start this post off by saying that I am in no way attempting to body shame, throwing hate in the direction of anyone, etc. I am merely expressing my opinion. As a personal trainer, my biggest concern […]

“Sleigh Bells Ring, Are You Listening?”

So it’s been a while. Like, a long while. That’s not to say I haven’t been writing. I’ve written so many drafts to post on this blog, it’s not even funny. But I also decided to write a novel for NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), which was November. I am very pleased to say that I reached […]

It’s to be released from slavery, or confinement. Now, Webster’s is all fine and well, but how many people honestly believe they’re free? Oh, no. Here she goes, I […]

-Machines Are People Too (MRP2); Nickels & Dimes   We are deemed the “human race.” Maybe it’s because we’re all running around in circles, constantly trying to out-do each other, or get on each other’s level.
