  • Kanye West is Bipolar?

    A couple days ago, I was watching Kanye West’s “interview” in the White House Oval Office with Donald Trump. I must admit I mostly wanted to watch it just to see what kind of crazy stuff Kanye would come up with. To be frank, he has always seemed a little like a loose cannon, even […]

  • Kavanaugh & Ford: Thoughts on Attempted Assault, Trauma, and PTSD

    The last few days, I have come across a lot of stupid, ignorant comments about attempted rape and its potential aftermath on social media. In case you have been living under a rock, people have gotten very passionate about the Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court candidate and his first accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, who both recently […]

  • Who Knew Modern Art Was Communist?

    I’ve been reading a book about abstract expressionism, and one part really made me laugh. I am a nerd, so I’m not sure if others will find this as amusing as I did, but I felt I would share anyhow. The amusing part of the book was about how modern art was shackled to communism […]

  • Weekend Life Update: Depression, Meditation, Politics

    I am currently experiencing a real downturn mood-wise, but I’m going to try to write a life update post anyhow. I tried to write a blog post yesterday, but was simply to depressed to complete it. Today I’m just going to sum up a few things that went on this last week, so hopefully, I […]

  • I Refuse to Be a Social Media Doormat!

    Yesterday I had to make a choice to unfriend someone on Facebook, a choice that I hate to have to make, but am finding more necessary as time goes on. The person I ended up unfriending was an editor and small publisher I had worked with in the past, so there was a little bit […]

  • Gun Arguments & Mental Illness

    I try to not be overly political on my blog, because I don’t want to chase off readers who may have different views, but this whole gun regulations argument that is raging is really wearing me down. I’m not going to go into exact specifics of what I personally believe, although I will say that […]

  • Arguing on the Internet, Should I Disengage?

    I really should know better by now. I really should learn to just disengage with ignorant or narrow-minded people who refuse to even consider any viewpoint but their own. I should learn that it takes away from my happiness and peaceful life by wandering into pointless debates with people who I know I’m never going […]

  • Illusions

    Illusions

    If I could have one wish, I would wish more than anything that we as humanity could let go of our illusions – religious illusions political illusions personal illusions so that we could take a cold, hard look at reality as it actually is, and work together to solve our real problems at the core. […]

  • I Love a Good Conspiracy

    I Love a Good Conspiracy

    Admission time…I LOVE a good conspiracy. JFK. Roswell. 9/11. The Illuminati. Skull and Bones. I love it all. Sometimes I think conspiracy theorists can go too far (Sandy Hook being a hoax comes to mind), but overall, I’m willing to view evidence either way and see why people come up with the conspiracy theories they […]

  • Why I, In Good Conscience, Cannot Vote for Hillary

    I have been struggling for a while about what I should do on voting day. Part of me said that I needed to vote for Clinton because I live in an important swing state (Ohio) and there is a reasonable possibility that the unknown loose cannon that is Trump might be even worse than Clinton. […]
