You are never adrift, just finding your way

Feeling out the word – A Choice, a search for a reason and Day 1

I want to write and I haven’t in ages, at least nothing story related because I don’t know what my voice is like. This means I need to experiment and although I’ve crafted my own universe I still need to just see how fiction works. You know in articles, you are reporting as an external …

I hated running until I learned to Respect it

So I was never really a physical person, I am a stubborn sort of person and even when I started to do muay thai the only thing that kept me there was the fact that I paid for it. I knew I sucked at it, I knew I looked like a fool most of the …
