What I Learned From Robin Williams’ Passing

August 12, 2014

Robin-WilliamsThere have been a few occasions in my life where I’ve resisted the urge to chuck a lime at someone’s head, like Mrs. Doubtfire did, and then blame it on an unknown assailant who committed a “run-by fruiting.” I paid close attention to “Dead Poets Society” – shedding plenty of tears in the process – because it was the first movie that prominently featured teenage suicide that I saw after I tried to kill myself during my teenage years. And I can’t count the times that I’ve turned to Read the rest of this entry »

Snacks in the Mail

August 6, 2014

Like most human beings, I love presents. Especially when they show up at my door! Who doesn’t like opening a package? It’s fun when you don’t know what’s inside, but it’s just as fun when you do, and you’ve been waiting days or weeks for it to arrive.

I got a package recently that was very fun to open. That’s because it was full of snacks! Read the rest of this entry »


Fun With Maps: How Far is 1,093 Miles?

August 5, 2014

I’ve been meaning to write this post for a while now. I’m glad I finally tackled it, because this post will make me feel good, and it’ll make me feel proud, and those are two feelings that I enjoy feeling! It’s also super nerdy, and I love that too!

My last post included a cardio miles update. Like I said in that post, I log every mile I complete doing any form of cardio. I’m up to 1,093.6 miles since I started last summer. That’s a lot of miles! So many miles, actually, that it’s hard for me to comprehend. And so I turn to Google Maps. Ladies and gentlemen, if I left my house and traveled 1,093 miles, I’d be… near the Colorado/Nebraska border!
