Fun With Lego

I had forgotten just how much fun building things with Lego is. As a child, I would spend hours building things with Lego bricks. Back then, I had no specific sets like they have now basically making them 3-D puzzles. … Continue reading

Hard to Be a Creative Sometimes

Really hard and taxing on the brain to be a creative and not be able to create. Unfortunately my current pay the bills job has nothing to do with being creative and therefore mind numbing and it’s usually an 11 … Continue reading

Slow Times

Just peachy! After a very busy February, looks like my job is entering a slow period which means less work which means less money. Not that I like the job but right now it was giving me money which I … Continue reading

New Fun Thing

Wish it didn’t cost so much or I could really take a liking to it. Tonight I have discovered the joys of axe throwing! Had a blast and released some pent up aggression. Not the best at it of course … Continue reading

Don’t Be So Little

People who say they never felt the urge to travel outside of their own state or country annoy me so much. How can people wish to stay so close-minded? So much out there to see and do and learn. If … Continue reading

Rummaging Through Ancestry

A couple months ago, one of my aunts on dad’s side started up a family history page on Facebook highlighting the maternal family line of my paternal line (dad’s mom’s side of the family). This sort of renewed my interest … Continue reading

Saga’s End

“Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” did not really live up to the hype. This isn’t to say that it is a bad film, quite the contrary. A fun little space romp with a few twists, a couple cameos, and … Continue reading

Messed Up Era

Here’s something I never really gave much thought to until I saw it mentioned on social media recently, but the 1980’s was really a messed up decade filled with mixed messages. I think we can all agree that just about … Continue reading

Franchise movies get a lot of flack. Yes, there is an infestation of franchise and reboot movies in theaters and streaming services these days and to some may look like they are choking out other genres. Even big filmmakers like … Continue reading

Strange Strangers

People do not make sense. I’m normally a polite person for the most part. If a stranger says “Hi” to me, I’ll usually say “Hi” back and even engage in a little chitchat. Sometimes I get strangers message me in a DM … Continue reading

Why do people never follow through with things they say they will do. Has to be one of the most annoying things about humans. Sometimes them not following through causes me not to follow through with things. But it really … Continue reading

Video Slave

A little experiment I did this summer. No pro equipment involved, just the Nikon P520 coolpix cam I use for still shots. A bit raw looking, but not too bad.
