Ever Been Afraid Of Getting What You Want?

I’m fairly certain that I’m not the only human being on this overly-populated planet who experiences fear. Fear is a survival mechanism that exists in all living things. Fear has the ability to motivate, numb, cripple, or create any combination of those things within us. The only difference is what you do with that fear. […]

Don’t Teach Kids To Hate. Please.

On a less positive note from what I just posted, I came across a mild case of homophobia in a grade school setting that got my blood to a slight boil. After reading aloud “The Hunger Games” to a group of 6-8 graders, we all lined up and waited outside of the cafeteria for our […]

Families Who Read Together Grow Together

Tonight I had the pleasure of volunteering my time to read “The Hunger Games” to a group of 6-8th grade students as part of the Read Aloud Program. Visit http://www.readaloudamerica.org to learn more about it. Not sure if other states have a similar program but I’m glad Hawaii does this.

Return to the Gamer Side

It’s about time I wrote about something gaming related! I’ve been wanting to do it for awhile, but nothing about it lately seemed blog-worthy.

Guilty Pleasures. We All Have ‘Em.

The 6am workout was pretty awesome. I’ve been relaxing at home before I head off to work. Catching up on some of my shows on Hulu Plus, this week’s episode of “Glee” is entitled “Guilty Pleasures”. I guess some would consider Glee a guilty pleasure in it’s own way. In any case, I am guilty […]

My Xbox Live Gamertag should be “1337 Crossfit Newb”

[Nerd jargon translator: 1337=Pager code for “Leet” which is a shortened form of “Elite”. And…in case I need to mention, “Newb” is short for “Newbie”. If you need a translator for that, well, use your favorite search engine] People who think Hawaii is all rainbows and sunshine tend to forget another key element in creating […]

Crossfit & Globo Gym – The Best of Both Worlds?

[Crossfit jargon translator: “Globo gym” refers to mainstream fitness centers] A few minutes ago I called the 24-hr Fitness Customer Service line with the complete intention of cancelling my membership. This would be the 3rd time I’ve done so but I’ve never been comfortable doing it (actually, I had someone else do it for me […]
