There is something that happens when you round a big bend to go towards the Lincoln tunnel and see this skyline that you have seen in films. This iconic tableau laid out in front of you seems so much more frightening in a way. It's kind of looking at you saying, "Do you dare come here?'
These past nearly FIVE YEARS have been a learning experience for sure. In the end, I found IDQT calling me back. It said, "You have more bullshit to talk about and ramble on for paragraphs for. Come back!" (this is all said with kind of Chris Hemsworth tone but a little more ethereal. Think Galadriel meets Thor.)
The Looming Monster
Hey gang! Sometimes I wonder about me. The other me. The insecure part of ourselves that tends to bleed through. I always wonder what that part of me would be like if it was the me that is the most prevalent part. We all have these masks that hide our crazy, right? In dating,... Continue Reading →
He started feeling nauseated and we went home. He started throwing up and I was an asshole. I decided to peek my chubby brown face around the corner and lightly taunt him.
Hey Gang! I recently came across the Non-Human Rights Project (NhRP). Essentially they are proposing we treat animals such as elephants, wales, dolphins and, most notably, chimpanzees as “persons”.

For example, I once went for a walk on a trail in the back woods with some friends. Along the way, we found barrettes, a small... Continue Reading →
Campfire Tales: Mr. Raccoon Has His Day (Conclusion)
Hey Gang! (Continued from Previous) Sleep was hard. I had gotten taller since I last camped, which meant my torso was completely exposed. This caused a problem as a snap cold front came through and it dipped down into the low 30s. I was freezing. I put on all of my clothes and my hoodie,... Continue Reading →
Campfire Tales: Mr. Raccoon Has His Day
Hey Gang! I decided to go with some friends to this beautiful campground close by last year. We drove the 30 minutes or so to the lake where our campsite was. The trek to the location was somewhat far in, about a quarter of a mile. This made it quite difficult to lug all of... Continue Reading →
A lot like gravity.
Hey Gang! I recently had the privilege of being the best man for my closest friend of nearly 15 years. I wanted to share the speech I wrote. I wrote it because it rang true about he and his wife from my point of view. When I was done with it, I wanted to share... Continue Reading →
