Stupid

Sometimes I think back to the early days when I first started writing.  It's very safe to say that when I started, I embodied most of the stereotypical qualities thought to belong to most writers. I started writing on a very serious and formal level in mid to late 1998.  At the time I was going through a very emotional time in my life.  I was clinically depressed; I relied upon the large amounts of coffee and sugary beverages just to be able to function.  I wrote poetry as an escape and suffered for my writing.  I foolhardedly believed that it wouldn't be good writing if I didn't suffer...

Playful Beginnings: My Writing Career

Today, on the long ago advice of a past teacher, I thought about how far I've come in my writing career.  Writing and taking pictures have always been my top two passions in life, which is why I eventually turned my passion into a successful career. I clearly remember sitting in English class in high school.  At the time, my English teacher was in his first year of teaching, and as such, he lacked experience, especially when it came to writing exercises and assignments.  Although I had an A+ average in the class; the next year I would eventually advance into Honors English. When it came...

Unsent Letters

Unsent Letters

I was recently thinking about a song by R.E.M. titled E-Bow The Letter.  This post was inspired by the song.  If you haven't heard it yet, I strongly suggest you buy the MP3 at Amazon. Generally, people are familiar with the letters that are sent through the mail.  Letter writing, in its traditional handwritten form has become a lost art, perhaps due to our increasing reliance on digital communication methods.  Blogger Nicole Froio has an interesting post about letters here that deserves a look. The letters I am discussing in this article are those, which for whatever reason, remain...

A Few Of My Geeky Personality Quirks

This post was inspired by this list of 100 Character Quirks; some of these are actually quite amusing.  While researching the topic, I also came across this message board thread.  This is a list of my geeky real-life character quirks. I will put my seatbelt on whenever I move my car for any reason, even if it's in a parking lot or fast food drive-through. I prefer books that have notes taken in them, especially if the notes are from someone else. Whenever I eat a meal, I either eat the entrée one food item at at a time, alternatively I mix the entire entrée into a big heap and dig in. I...
