Avoid drama. Walk away in silence from anything that doesn’t improve your life. Calmness amongst chaos is a sign of emotional maturity.

Short Movie Review

Bigger and Better than Batman Begins in every way; more extremely well developed characters, more action, and more twists. Heath Ledger performs the best character of all time with The Joker. "This is what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object".

Short Movie Review

Christopher Nolan brings a new version of Batman to the screen; darker, more realistic, and edgier then previous versions. Action that makes sense mixed with a hero's growth; we witness the defining of Batman's character. The music and the performances add to the excellence of this movie.

Short Movie Review

Pitch Black part II. Riddick on the run, vicious alien carnivores that only come out in the rain, and a bounty hunter named Johns. Science Fiction with an emphasis on Action.

It's past time I list out the things that I want to work on in 2018.

I have two main goals that I want to focus on this year.

Lost Weight

Save Money

I am not a healthy person. I believe that. I weigh too much for my height, I have a BMI in the 30's. I have a gut. I get out of breath easily.

I am tired of it.

I know it will be difficult at 38 to get start a workout and healthy eating routine but, it has become apparent to me that I need to change or else I will continue to be unhappy.

It's not like I wanted to become an overweight, mediocre, middle age, white man. At one point I'm sure I had aspirations and visions and goals and such. I mean, don't most people have those things? I just fell off the, "I am going to work to become a better person" bandwagon somewhere in my late 20's and early 30's. I don't really remember why, or if there was even a conscious moment when I said I was going to stop. It just kind of happened and became my routine. I know I've been tired of this routine for awhile now. But, I've been the best procrastinator in the history of procrastination and haven't started working on it because

As for the second goal. It's pretty easy to explain.

I'm tired of spending all my money on useless things. I'm tired of running credit card debt for stupid purchases. I'm tired of living paycheck to paycheck. I'm tired of wondering if I'll have enough to save for retirement.

Pretty much everything I want to work on this year boils down to: "I'm tired of X".

I do not understand the idea that a party would hold something hostage that they want to renew to get a short term fix that they don't want.

It is mind boggling that this is how the United States seems to be working today.

The reason most of us are unhappy most of the time is that we set our goals - not for the person we're going to be when we reach them - we set our goal for the person we are when we set them.
