I have written on the topic of personal freedom many times. Since my early 20’s, my ultimate goal has been to work toward achieving freedom from the regular things that end up tying us down. I have had success and failure along the way through my efforts to achieve personal freedom and have learned a lot along the way. We moved across town this weekend and through that process, I spent … Read More

Dr. Pepper Licorice Candy Review

I don’t often drink soda, but when I do, it’s Dr. Pepper. I have loved Dr. Pepper since I was a kid. I think I got that love from my Dad. The other day I came across Dr. Pepper Licorice on Amazon and had to try it. Thanks to Amazon Prime, here we are. I thought it would be only fitting to film the experience. What is your favorite drink? … Read More

iphone 6s plus

To anyone who has received a blue chat bubble from me in the last 24 hours, I am back on iPhone. Last Summer, I wrote a post about how I won’t be buying the iPhone 6S or the iPhone 6S Plus. I went into detail about how Apple doesn’t innovate much anymore, blah blah blah. I was pretty adamant about my decision and did not see myself wavering. However, after some … Read More

We Fight!

fighting

Put two people in a room and eventually, they will fight about something. Each of us fight a different way and for different reasons. Some forms of fighting can even be healthy in a relationship. Some people get loud and make a scene while others are more subtle. My wife and I are definitely more subtle with our fighting. We don’t get in each other’s face, we say things in … Read More

It’s easy to get caught up in the moment when things are not going the way you would like them to. Problem areas are always more visible than what is actually working. We get more attached to the problems because they are at odds with what we intended. When we intend for something to go a certain way and the result is less than desirable, it doesn’t feel good. When … Read More

I am easily distracted. There have been times I self-diagnosed ADD. The problem is that we live in a world with no shortage of distractions. There is more than just something for everybody, there are dozens of somethings. To make it worse, I love technology. You and I both know that the tech world moves fast and there are always new bright/shiny things coming out every day. Adding to that, I … Read More

One of the issues I have had with Netflix is the short list of categories for browsing movies. I like to browse categories in hopes of discovering a movie I have not seen. I am the same way when it comes to books on Amazon and audiobooks on Audible. I may not know what I am searching for until I see it. I am sure many of you are similar … Read More

We’re ok, because we saved

Savings

Prior to getting married I wasn’t very good at saving money. I guess I didn’t really have a reason to save money unless there was something that I wanted which required saving for. A little over eight years ago I was engaged to be married, didn’t have hardly any money in my bank account, and nothing in my savings account. It was at that point I realized that I needed … Read More
