Why I’m No Longer on Facebook

This is a personal decision. But it’s one I have to make. Origins I’m actually quite grateful for social media. Many years ago — what? about 15 years, give or take? — I remember logging into MySpace every day at work. I was at a dead end office job. Bored out of my mind, nothing…

The Time and Date

Me personally? No. Here’s why: 1. As a licensed time traveler, I’m well aware that simply knowing your own future can and often does change it.

If Someone Judges You…

If I’m just being my honest, authentic self and somebody judges or criticizes me about it — that’s on them, not me. Yes, I’m a little weird. I have quirks. I’m a dork. I like being a little playful, silly, eccentric, and goofy at times. I’m totally straight and serious other times. I’m an odd…
