Year End Bucket List

Year End Bucket List

The year is coming to an end.  Slipping slowly down behind the mountain, vanishing from sight.  I like to take this time to look back and think about what all happened this year.  Look back over my shoulder and all that God has done. People like to create bucket lists.  Lists of things to check off in their lifetime.  Places to visit, people to meet, and things to do and see.  But what if we reverse that?  Rather than making…

Well let me help you get started…

Love Story

Love Story

Just because everyone needs a good love story for Valentine’s day.   They met in a small town.  A mutual friend introduced them and they started talking.  She was quiet, he’s more outgoing.  She could not figure out why he kept hanging around, he wondered if she liked him.  Back and forth, back and forth.  Their paths kept crossing (funny how that works), then they started dating (officially), and then they fell in love.   But he had a dream,…

Yes, I'm Crazy!

Yes, I'm Crazy!

Yes, I know I promised a blog series on writing.  However, God had different plans, and last Sunday I broke my wrist.  So my dominant hand is in a cast for the next 5 weeks.   However, I do have the series all planned out and, as the pain continues to subside, I plan on typing out all the posts for you.  So stay tuned. On another note, I was able to CLEP American Government the day after I broke…

Why You Need to Fail

Why You Need to Fail

Okay everyone, I’m getting my blogs up and running again!  I’ve got life *somewhat* scheduled and planned out… and I’ve got some blog post ideas sketched out and ready to go. With that said… Why You Need to Fail. Everyone should fail at least one thing in your life.  You need to mess up, drop the Frisbee, fail the CLEP, miss the deadline, wreck the car, miss the goal, burn the food.  The list goes on and on.  Failure is…

12/50 Skills to Learn Before You Graduate

I’m fascinated with lists and things in rows.  I love lists of things to learn and do.  I have a list of books to read, a list of books I’ve already read, a list of things to do in life, and a list of CLEPs to finish.  🙂 Last week I stumbled upon this article by Marc and Angel Hack Life: 50 Things Everyone Should Know How to Do.  While I don’t agree with all of the things on the…

5 Books to Read This Summer

5 Books to Read This Summer

Summer is the time for reading!  Read in the sun, read in the shade, read by the pool, read on the beach, read in the car, read… you get the idea. The New Testament – Serisouly, everyone should read the New Testament once a year.  Read the stories, read the letters, read the words.  Let the verses sink in and be inspired.  God’s Word is living and breathing. Leave it to PSmith by P. G. Wodehouse – I usually read silently,…

Predictable Plotlines

Predictable Plotlines

One of my favorite things to do is write short essays on life.  Here’s my most recent thought path.     One night, a few weeks ago, we decided to go see the new Captain America film.  After adding in lots of friends, we had a group of over twenty people – sitting in the theater as the room went dark and the film began.  Later on that week, I discovered more people who had gone to see The Winter…
