On Being a Twentysomething

Ooh boy. This is one of those posts I knew I’d get to at some point but never really imagined it being here. The weird thing is that I knew exactly when it should be written. Today. I needed it out today because as of today, I am no longer in my twenties. In years […]

Leaving CODAworx

The CODAworx beginning After two and a half years at CODAworx, I put in my two weeks notice. It did not end up being or feeling like I had imagined. I expected feelings of regret and nervousness to kick in, but for many reasons, those feelings hardly came through. CODAworx was a job I took […]

Rust Magazine

I don’t think it’s much of a secret, but I’m not overly enthusiastic about the translation business. It’s not what I see myself doing for the rest of my life but for now it pays the bills. I’m okay with that. That being said, I’m constantly looking for ways for me to advance my career […]

Long-Distance Relationship Again

Yesterday, I helped Ellie move into her new apartment. Once again, after six months of living so close to one another, we are in a long-distance relationship.

Where I’ve Been and Why I Haven’t Been Writing

I’ve really wanted to sit down and write more since I’ve gotten home but it’s been a blur of just about everything. Everyone seems to want to see me and I want to see everyone.

Proposed Writing Retreat

If you remember last year, I had an ambitious November. I wanted to take 30 days to make myself a better man, and I did. I wanted to do 100 push-ups and 100 sit-ups each day, and I did. I also wanted to complete NaNoWriMo, and I did. It was ambitious and by the end I was absolutely drained […]

An Ode to a Mother

I’ve known my mother for my entire life, and now half of hers (give or take a few months). I’ve got to say, she’s one helluva woman. Today I don’t have a chance to see her, but I had a chance to talk to her; she’s off in Chicago celebrating her day with her friends. My […]
