It So Hard To Say Nothing Sometimes

I’ve jumped off of Facebook for a few weeks, mostly to stop the barrage of idiots from professing their love for Donald Trump all over my timeline. A big part of it is because singing the praises of that idiot makes me lose respect for a lot of my friends but it’s also the friends…

Clarification: I Love My Friends and What They Do

I think I might have misrepresented my feelings about friends and what they’re doing in my last post. I wrote something awhile ago about posting more about your life and less memes and it looks a little like I’m upset about all the posts about life.  I am nothing but happy that my Facebook feed…

It’s Not Me, It’s Facebook

  A long time ago, I wrote a┬ápost about how when I initially joined Facebook, it depressed me to see that so many of my friends had done (or at the time, were doing) a lot of great things with their life. It saddened me that the life choice I had made was apparently the…

What’s Going On In Your Life?

What’s going on in your life? Is everything good? Are you happy? Are you angry? There’s no way for me to know because all you do is post memes and funny videos. There’s nothing on your timeline except inspirational quotes. Do you get to go anywhere? Did you see your family recently? Friends? Coworkers? I…

Get Ready! 3… 2… 1… BABY!

A co-worker and friend had me proofread his blog post about having their first child, and it reminded me that I’ve been putting off writing my story. My story is going to be different. I’m not going to focus on the “story” aspect of it. I’m going to talk about what I felt when I…

What Is The Real Reason Behind Continuity? – Apple WWDC 2014

This past week, Apple announced a slew of new features to its desktop and mobile operating systems, OS X and iOS. One feature, to me, was more intriguing than anything else announced, simply because it gave a slight glimpse into future device plans for Apple. This feature is Continuity. What is Continuity? From what I…

Using iPad mini As A Phone – 6 Months Later

Here we are, May 2014, and I’m here to write an update on how the cellphone-less life has been in terms of cost and ease of use. I’ll go through each one in detail. Cost So, the hotspot costs $50 a month, before our discount. We ended up turning on my wife’s iPhone, so that…

O Planet, My Planet

A page on Facebook called “I Fucking Love Science” recently posted a video showing a glacier “calving” for over 75 minutes. The glacier was the size of lower Manhattan. The video goes on to say that the ice shelf there melted more in 10 years than it did in the last 100 years (they have…

To “Oblivion” And Beyond

I just recently watched “Oblivion” with Tom Cruise and Morgan Freeman and I have to say that despite a few plot issues, I enjoyed it. It was the kind of movie that’s great while you watch it, but the more you think about it, the more issues you find with the story. There were a…

Perception Equals Reality

As a quick disclaimer: I’m writing this purely out rage. I’m angry right now, and I feel pretty lousy. The point of this post is something I’ll get out of the way right from the beginning; I can only blame myself, and I knew this would be the outcome. Throughout life, whatever people perceive you…

The Simple Act of Listening

Patience is a strange trait for me. On one hand, I have almost infinite patience for my wife, but when it comes to the world, I have almost none. Everyone and everything drives me crazy, to the point sometimes where I feel like just running my car into someone or shouting at the person in…
