Someone I speak with about some very personal things recently asked me about my sense of morality. I've always been hesitant about something like this, because people will invariably disagree with me and draw mean conclusions about me from whatever I write. There's nothing wrong with that, per se, because I do love to inflame … Continue reading A play on morality
I think a big contributor to happiness in life is balancing your long and short term needs.

I find the nakedness of blogging really preventative sometimes. Many people who know me have started reading my blog somewhat regularly and it's left me with a bad taste in the mouth. I like that people read my work, but I also find myself wanting to write about these people. Perhaps, I've made this blog … Continue reading The Takeover
I am fascinated by colons in titles when they are used well. It makes a work seem much more thought out for some reason and leaves me curious about it without ever having watched or read that work. Take Dr. Stranglove , which I've never actually seen. Its subtitle 'Or How I Learned To Stop … Continue reading Sidenote: on colons in titles
Anyone who's read this blog knows that I have a particular fascination with the people who read this thing. I'm incessantly curious about you because why wouldn't I be? It's something special to have people willing to read my thoughts on a semi-regular basis, to have people agree with me to some extent. I guess … Continue reading Why Are You Here?
