The Problems with Being Overly Ambitious

Writing a book and some short stories, baking, painting, sketching, reading, blogging, creating videos, making song covers, and writing music. I want to be creative constantly. I want to be creative in nearly every way possible. Combine that desire with my severe over-planning, and I become horribly overly ambitious. Over the years, I’ve gone through … Continue reading The Problems with Being Overly Ambitious

Planning Versus Doing

I love planning things. Baking challenges, writing posts and stories, YouTube videos, moves, schedules, anything creative or organisational. The problem with this is that I don’t always like doing everything I plan. My excitement usually builds up immensely during the planning process, but I often use all of my productive energy for that project whilst … Continue reading Planning Versus Doing

Fictional Inspiration

There are so many books, movies, and shows which make me wish I lived a life full of crazy adventures and was so unbelievably talented/skilled/learned in an area that I could work for these cool organisations.

One Year’s Time

One year ago today, I was in France experiencing D-Day like I never have before, nor ever will again. I saw some of the most breathtakingly beautiful views, which were also some of the most heart-wrenching. To think of tens of thousands of men losing their lives on the same beaches and cliffs that I … Continue reading One Year’s Time
