Introduction to German

A few years ago I started dating my girlfriend. She's crazy smart and studied German in school, both high school and college, and also was part of an exchange program in Dresden and Berlin. I wasn't much of a student throughout high school--I can't really think of another time in my life when I cared less... Continue Reading →

Dystopia 2020 (unfinished)

Below is a piece that I began working on back in January (2017). I never really had an outline for it, though I did go back and edit it every couple months for a while. At this point I'm done with it, and I figure, why not just put it out there and let whoever... Continue Reading →

Imaginary Rehearsal Therapy

It   A while ago, I had this idea. I guess. Honestly, this was saved in my drafts, and the only text saved (aside from the title, which I rather like) was the word above. "It" Ok, Past-me, what were you thinking about when you wrote this title? Is this a thing, a concept that... Continue Reading →

In any case, it's really convenient that my phone will store the date, time and location of any... Continue Reading →

All Bad Apples

If all cops aren't bad, then why don't the allegedly good ones assist in the arrest and prosecution of the ones that are bad? When a citizen is complicit in a criminal act, they are included in the guilty party; it's aiding and abetting.

Someone I Care About

When I was younger, probably until I was about 15, my dad and I went down the shore for a week every summer, where my uncle Bill had been living for the summer. Back then, my family had a house in west Wildwood, and my uncle Bill would take my Grandmom (Nanny, or Nan) down... Continue Reading →

A Company Dude?

I was thinking about this earlier today: to all appearances, I'm a company man. I've moved up in the company, though not quickly; I get frustrated by people who don't work very hard; I generally try and do things the right way, and get annoyed by people who cut corners; and I feel genuinely good...
