Some Thoughts After Coming Home

Wonderful Listeners,

As a small reminder to those of you still reading my content (and I am aware that many have stopped reading), I am back in my hometown for the winter break. I got back roughly a week ago and my time has been, well… quite “meh.”

Now don’t get me wrong. I love being home. However, I think many of those who are a part of my generation can agree that returning home from college, can be really draining. I mean, I’m so used to living my life as I please, being my own responsible adult, and spending my time with my friends circle. But coming home, I remember that I am suddenly cut off from a large portion of that friends circle; I remember that I’m a responsible adult now under my parents’ roof and rules; I remember that my life is not ever-so-slightly not completely mine. And above all, I cannot be myself.

He’s My Crazy, Captivating Captain!

Why Hello Wonderful Listeners!

Phew. It’s been a while since I’ve done something like this. I’ve almost forgotten how to do it “properly.” Eh. But who cares? I certainly don’t! That’s why I’m doing this thing. This, shoutout thing-a-mer-bobber!

So, for those of you who don’t know Paul, from The Captain’s Speech, you certainly should. Why? Well, because I like him! What more reason do you need? I like him and I think you’ll like him too, that’s why I’m making a whole post about the guy.

Oh, allow me to explain. Don’t rush. Paul is HILARIOUS. I’m serious. I often find myself busting a gut, a gasket, a socket, and anything else that can bust when I’m reading his posts. They’re so honest and down-to-earth that you just can’t help but relate.

Sure, maybe he doesn’t talk about politics, or social issues, or anything else like that often enough to be relevant to his blog, but still, he’s got a lot of other good qualities. If you’ve been keeping up with my Have A Nice Read! series then you’ll know that I often reblog his posts. They just, I dunno, resonate with me. 🙂

I think the reason I like him so much is because he’s a lot like me. We both blog about our lives. We’re both funny (I’d like to believe.) We both like poetry. We both are earnest with our words. We both are young. Well, OK, we share a lot in common. There, I said it.

Anyway, as an earnest and direct message (I’m talking to you directly Paul), thank you. Thanks for being who you are and being so open about who you are. It really does inspire me to be myself more on my own blog. Plus, you’ve got this very clean way with words that makes you all the more better. I know I certainly don’t pull off what you do nearly as well. So give yourself a trophy for that one!

But… for the rest of you, go check him out! Get lost in his blog. He’s the captain of my team on most days so you know he’s a good one. Promise, you won’t regret it!

If You Build It, They Will Come…

‘Sup Wonderful Listeners!

So, as you might have noticed, I’ve been away from my blog for quite some time. Well, not entirely. I mean, I’ve been in and out, so to speak. See I’m trying to do my best to come back here and blog about my life but I also have things to attend to!

Well, what I actually came here to talk about has more to do with what I’ve been up to while I’ve been away. See, I’m kind of working on building myself up as an artist, oh and of course I’m in school again. But more on the artist bit… Continue reading
