As a White Person. . .

As a white person, I feel like any opinions I voice on race need to be heavily discounted.  As a white person, I’m not sure I have the right to say much of anything at all.  The thing is, because of the social circles I’m in and because one of my jobs is at Capital […]

How Do We Stop Hartford Residents From Dying in Car Accidents?

What were you doing when you were 22 years old? You may have been looking forward to graduating from college in a few short months, or you were working in a dead end job that you hated. Perhaps you were falling in love, or cursing your ex’s name. Whatever you were doing, if you’re reading […]

A Failure Of Sorts

I’ve failed at one of my life goals.  I’ve always wanted to die with a full complement of body parts.  Of course I’m not counting baby teeth or hair.  I would have failed years ago if those counted.  I mean I wanted to keep everything I’m supposed to have.  No amputations, no ectomies, nothing of […]

My Favorite Sin Redux

A few days ago, a friend invited me to go out to the bar. I’d been hunkered down in my apartment for a few days because of the cold, and I was ready for a night on the town. I caught my reflection as I jumped in the shower. Maybe it was because I was […]

A Quick Recap

I successfully completely my goal of a post a day for the month of December.  Overall I think it went pretty well.  I’m not proud of everything I wrote, but I wrote every day and I hit every deadline.  The site had 646 views by 360 individuals.  I don’t normally pay any attention to those […]

My Most Annoying Superpower

While driving with my daughter today, she said, “They should call you ‘the red light hitter.’”  She then added, “I know why green’s your favorite color, you’re always waiting for it.”  I had no response, except to laugh.  She’s absolutely right.  I hit more red lights than anyone.  It doesn’t matter where I’m going or […]

Christmas Day

Today was the big day.  After a month of prepping, Christmas finally happened.  It went well.  Santa was overly generous to my daughter.  So were her grandparents.  She had a great day overall.  One of the strange things since my divorce (or at least one thing I didn’t expect) is that I feel a lot […]

The Last Jedi: Take Two (Spoilers)

I went and saw The Last Jedi again last night, and I liked the movie a whole lot more the second time than the first. I thought about why for most of the day before I sat down to write this, and did some reading about other people’s responses to the movie. My partner asked an […]

Star Wars: The Last Jedi- Thoughts and Impressions (SPOILERS WITHIN)

I just got back from seeing Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Let’s get this out of the way right now: the movie is okay. Not great, not bad, okay. I would recommend that the Star Wars faithful see it, but I don’t think it’s worth the ticket price for the average movie goer. Adam Driver […]

Rogue One

I am still in my re-watch in anticipation of the new Star Wars movie.  Instead of sticking to Episodes I-VII, I decided to re-watch Rogue One before Episode IV.  I saw it last December when it was in theaters and hadn’t thought about it much since.  My opinion of it hasn’t changed. The movie lands […]
