Small Hometown Vibes

I realize I’ve been writing a lot of poetry lately on the site, and I’ve been really enjoying it. However, in an effort to give you guys something different, I thought I’d tell you about my experience working in a grocery store. Thrilling, I know! Let’s see now, I was about fifteen and a half…

Writing is Only a Chore if You Make it One

Look, I know it’s hard. You sit down in front of your keyboard with all the motivation in the world to bust out your next great novel. You get about a page in or so and you start to think about picking it back up the next day, or later on that night or whatever….

Let’s Talk About Productivity

We all have a hard time staying on track every now and again. We get caught up in our day to day doings, whatever they may be. But we have a need to be productive. That necessity might be paying the bills or buying a new car, but most anything that needs accomplished requires productivity….

Your Life Means Your Path

Going through life doing what other people tell you will get old quick. As a child it’s just how the world works- you learn from your parents and teachers. But when you reach a certain age, perhaps around 18 or 19, you begin to use what you’ve leaned about the world to formulate your own…

Making The Most Of Your Time

Being a long-time sufferer of procrastination, I’m here to show you how I’ve (mostly) overcome it. High school was when I procrastinated the most.  I would almost never, and I mean like pretty much never, study for any tests or exams.  I wouldn’t study at all.  And if I felt like I needed to, the…

Your Definition of Success is Defined by YOU

When it comes to the topic of goals people often get insecure.  Take, for example, one guy’s goal may be to graduate high school to proceed into the workforce.  Another, however, may want to get his PhD and then continue into groundbreaking scientific research.  Should the wannabe high school graduate think any less of his…

Escaping Normality

When you think of normal, what comes to mind?  A guy who drinks his morning cup of coffee on the way to his 9-5?  The real question is, why do we all strive to attain mediocrity? Now, some of you could say I’m a hypocrite when it comes to the subject.  I’m going to a…
