Balancing Act

I was a bit of a loner growing up. When people I knew talked about throwing a party and inviting “all of their friends,” I knew for me that would mean going to my neighbor’s house and asking if he (Jeremiah, co-author of this blog!) wanted to hang out. One of the advantages to that […]

Pedestals – Part Two

(This is a follow up to an earlier article – read it here!)   In Part One of this article, I talked about some of the dangers of putting women on a pedestal while dating or seeking a relationship. I have seen a lot of my friends fall into this trap, and I was definitely guilty […]

My Life Lessons

-Mistakes- I made early on were ones that have, up until very recently, haunted me day and night. I met a girl in high school and at the time I didn’t want a relationship; I just wanted a no strings attached kind of thing. I got my wish and shortly after meeting her and fooling […]

Living to Love

-As people- we crave things we sometimes don’t understand. We have a tendency to want things at odd times and express emotions when we don’t wish to. At times we run on auto pilot and simply exist. Other times we have hundreds of thoughts and emotions coursing through our minds all at once and it […]

Pedestals – Part One

Pedestals – Part One

I am a huge history buff. Any where I visit, the first step is always scoping the area out for famous landmarks or museums. Some of the most dramatic of these places and objects are the statues that honor past heroes. From the statues of Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and George Washington in Washington D.C., to […]

Snowflake

Snowflake

“You’re a special, unique snowflake.” Chances are you haven’t had anyone tell you that recently. Maybe the last person to say something that cheesy was your mother, of course at a time that was extremely embarrassing. It’s more common to hear that you aren’t special or different; just another person going about his life. And […]

Fast Forward and Rewind

Fast Forward and Rewind

This might make me seem old, but I remember using VCRs. The ever-present fuzziness in the picture, the frantic mashing of the Play button after fast-forwarding through the previews, “Be Kind – Rewind.” They are now a relic of the past, relegated to sitting on the shelf at your local Goodwill. You had to be […]

Learning the Language

Learning the Language

Being bilingual (or being a show-off who is fluent in more than two languages) is both useful and impressive. Children can pick languages up subconsciously – their brains are like sponges, hearing and retaining with no effort. However, it is no easy task as an adolescent or adult. You have to practice pronunciation, recite tenses, and memorize just […]

Leap Of Faith

Leap Of Faith

The first step is always the hardest. When you jump off a cliff to land in the water, your body screams “what are you doing?” The same thing can happen when you are faced with the choice to commit to someone. The key consideration in either decision to “jump in” is trust. Much as you […]
