I’ve linked to Paul Miller’s “Offline” project before. Paul is a writer at TheVerge and he’s taking a year away from the Internet and using sneaker net to send in his articles to colleagues. Occasionally, comments will be printed off for him to read. It’s an interesting thing and something I feel is fantastic.  I […]

It’s a brand new year. In 2003, I was a junior in High School. School and life was semi-stressful. Many of my classmates were doing Spring Break activities and going to the beaches, hanging with friends and partying during a time of rest and relaxation. I decided to do something slightly different. I packed up […]

Since completing a 30-day break from a lot of things, I’ve been too busy to actually write about the experience. I failed on a couple of things. One of those was no meat and another was no beer. I did well but caved in a few days short of my 30-day mark. There are no […]

I have a fast metabolism so, despite the fact that you can consider me overweight, I haven’t gained a pound in years. My weight at 270 pounds has remained […]

It has been three days since I last checked Facebook. I haven’t had coffee or beer or meat in three days and my level of boredom from the lack of television and other stimulants grows at an even greater pace than my appetite. It’s also the 11th day that my neighbors smoke marijuana from dawn […]

Wasting no time following my last post, “Hello 2012.” I have decided to kick off the annual detox a month early and I’m upping the challenge from last year in a way that seems completely impossible but is worth a shot. This is not a resolution for the new year and I welcome all of […]

Another year has passed and I’m happy about everything that happened. In the material world, not much has changed in a way that I should document beyond what has been written on this blog. The lack of changes in my job, home and geographical location allowed me a few things that were missing from previous […]

I’m a slow reader so it’s a fear of mine that I’m the last Apple fan to complete the biography of Steve Jobs which was delivered to me via Kindle on its release date. Part of me is certain that many of us who didn’t think twice about buying the book didn’t actually read it […]
