Perseverance

Failure is only the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently. -Henry Ford Last night, I watched the highly anticipated return of Conor McGregor. Here is a guy whose life is under a microscope. And under the microscope his mistakes were magnified, not only to the public, but I’m sure himself as well. HeContinue reading “Perseverance”

The Drip is Finished!

Hey everyone! Sorry it’s been a little while since my last post, but I’ve been writing a bunch! I finished my dystopian biopunk novella called The Drip and will start editing that this weekend. I’ve already got a couple of beta readers lined up once I run through it first. I also got in contactContinue reading “The Drip is Finished!”

2010-2019: The Decade That Made Me

I’m usually make a conscious effort to not buy into any of the trending fads on social media such as the most recent one: Top 9 of 2019. I guess it’s just my way of making myself think that I’m just not another cog in the machine. It gives me some sort of reassurance thatContinue reading “2010-2019: The Decade That Made Me”

Tales from Europe: Romania

Hey everyone! I’m back from a much needed holiday break. I went back home to Arkansas to spend time with family and decompress, but I’m back with another entry in the Tales from Europe series. This time I am doing Romania! This trip was different from any other trip that I went on while IContinue reading “Tales from Europe: Romania”

Tales from Europe: Zermatt

Seeing the Matterhorn was one of the things that I told myself I HAD to do before I left Europe. It was one of those bucket list items and I visited Zermatt, Switzerland just to see that big rock. The town of Zermatt is an amazingly quiet ski resort town. I didn’t really know thisContinue reading “Tales from Europe: Zermatt”

Tales from Europe: Ljubljana & Bled

Ljubljana, Slovenia, to me, is one of the most underrated spots in Europe. It is such a calm and down to Earth city. During my time living in Italy, my friends and I would take regular trips to Ljubljana. Now, I’m going to cut right to the chase…we took these regular trips to Ljubljana for,Continue reading “Tales from Europe: Ljubljana & Bled”

Tales from Europe: Tromsø

Tromsø, Norway was one of those places that I never thought that I would go to in my time in Europe. It seemed too out of the ordinary and off the beaten path, but when one of my coworkers went and got to see the Aurora Borealis I knew that I had to go. Now,Continue reading “Tales from Europe: Tromsø”

Tales from Europe: Krakow

Krakow, Poland was one of the first trips I took after arriving on station in Italy. It was also just a weekend trip, but that one weekend held stark opposites in the two days that I was there. Drunken escapade one night, only to visit Auschwitz the next morning. I suppose the trip started likeContinue reading “Tales from Europe: Krakow”
