Trying to Scream Underwater

JOSH’S NOTE: I suppose there’s a first time for everything. I’ve never felt the need to post any sort of warning before a post before but today is just a little bit different. Today we are diving into some deep shit and I feel the need to offer a fair warning to anyone of my

Reasons Why You Probably Shouldn’t Date Me

I’ve somehow managed to make it an entire year without getting just wine-drunk enough to completely throw my self-esteem into the garbage and download Tinder. I’m going to go ahead and give myself a big ole pat on the back because the temptation has been extremely over-whelming. It does get one thinking though, when plotting

Never Be Afraid to Bloom in the Dark

When in doubt, turn to a Disney movie for your inspiration. For me, this month’s strength came from Mulan. No, not that! This: Just like April, May was something of an insane month for me in some really great ways. While I fell short of meeting some of my long-term goals I have been working

Cracks in the Crystal Ball

For anyone wondering how the month is going- it’s 1:30 in the afternoon and I’m eating a pint of Ben & Jerrys for what is essentially my breakfast and lunch. Ok, things aren’t that bad… I mean the Ben & Jerry’s part is totally true. I’d say, I regret nothing but I just finished the

Oh February, Short and Sweet

I’m sitting down the write this at 7:00am on Wednesday. You’d think that I was just waking up and getting my day started but in reality, I haven’t gone to bed yet and I’m not wide awake but I’m pretty damn conscious right now. I would also like to thank those that expressed concern at

The Great Big Decagon of Life

I’m gonna go ahead and admit that this has not been my favorite week- matter of fact, it’s been downright stressful as hell. I can’t really pinpoint why, but I know that I’ve been emotionally drained to the point where I have spent far too much time sleeping. A fine example would be that it’s

Celebrating Five Years of Terrible Blogging

I guess yesterday was supposed to be a day for celebrating rather than complaining to the internet that my arm hurt- I didn’t get the memo until it was too late. Sounds about right for me. It turns out that yesterday was my five-year anniversary of signing up with WordPress to host my blogs. Now

Tests Don’t Stop Just Because You Get Old… Apparently

As of starting to write this post it is 4:53 in the morning. Am I just waking up to start my day? Not at all. Have you met me? I’m still awake from yesterday. I’ve pretty much accepted my life as a night owl- it’s not all that bad if you make sure to constantly

What Can I Improve This Year?

Well hello there 2018! Ya’ll know I’m not a big fan of the idea of resolutions. I find them to be a fantastic set-up for failure. Especially when people start throwing around the concept of “New Year, New Me!” I hate that. When I first started this blog way back in 2015 I talked about

Sending My Baby Out Into the World One Piece at a Time

Whelp, I did it. Monday I posted a sample chapter from my upcoming book “You’re Doing It Wrong” and the response has been pretty damn awesome. If you’re behind the times you check out “Bad Luck & Hard Love” here. This chapter in particular comes a bit later in the book and introduces the stories
