How Far Would It Go?

It’s been a while since I’ve written anything (that should be the title of my next book). I’m not sure why I fell off a little either. I’ve been busy, but not any busier than I’m used to. I’ve also been going at a much slower pace through Histories by Herodotus. I knew it would be…

Vote 6/6

Democrats have taken control of the House and Republicans managed to keep control of the Senate. This is absolutely amazing news. The wave turned out to be real. Trump will be held accountable. The people, who are better represented by the House, got out and voted for people of all different backgrounds, genders, and sexual…

Vote 4/6

I haven’t been having a good couple of weeks recently. Bad luck comes in streaks with me. And things usually get worse before they get better, as the cliches suggest. This is about a certain situation I got myself into recently. When I get myself in these situations, I try to find silver linings. Here,…

Vote 3/6

I have another poem for you all. We’re five days away from the most important election of our lives. I’m reading reports saying early voter turnout for people ages 18-39 is up significantly. The blue wave is real, but we can do better. We can always do better. I hope these poems are making a…

Vote

The election is almost here, and I’m not sure whether or not to be nervous or excited. I’m a little bit of both, but leaning more towards nervous. It’s hard to be excited when Trump is president. I’m really hoping enough people turn out to make the GOP voting restriction efforts useless, but that’s going…

Underlined Passages

I never used to listen to music while I wrote because I thought it would be distracting, but I think I’m converted. Thanks to my new thinksound headphones, I can drown everything out, focus on the beat, listen to the lyrics, use the rhythm in my work, and open my mind to all the ideas…

Pick and Choose

I treated myself to a pair of headphones for my birthday, and they finally came in the mail. I ordered them off Massdrop. They buy products in bulk and sell them at a discounted price. I managed to get a pair of thinksound On2s for $80 instead of $200. I’ve never had a pair of…

Monday

This isn’t your typical Monday post you’d read from me. I’m the kind of person that dreads them, regardless of how good or bad they are. However, today’s a little different, and much needed, so here’s a poem for all of you that represents that. Maybe it’ll change your Monday as well. Monday Today’s a…

What Do You Do When

I think we all have anxiety every now and then regarding how our lives are going, and if the direction we’re heading in is the right one. Right now, things are very good for me. I’m happy in many aspects of my life, but there are days where I try to look back and see…

Trophy Hunters

I just want to start out by saying fuck trophy hunters. I’m all for hunting, and I don’t hate the second amendment, but when it comes to trophy hunting, I’m 100 percent against it. There’s absolutely no reason to take pride in shooting beautiful animals for the sake of shooting them, to boost your ego,…
