Sometimes this ‘Parent iPhone' commercial makes me jealous because I think it'd be pretty rad to be a dad. Sometimes.
I’m seeing this this weekend. It will happen. If it’s even half as great as Garden State is, I will love it entirely.
Every man’s life ends the same way. It is only the details of how he lived and how he died that distinguish one man from another.

This is kinda the perfect quote to repost the day after my father would have turned 50. It’s pretty much what I’ve been saying for the past 4 years.
This one’s rough because it comes across like I have no ambition, haha.
I have no dream job. All I want out of my employment somewhere is that I work with creative and intelligent people who love what they do and respect what I bring to the table - and to make a decent livable wage doing it. I want to be challenged and pushed to learn new things. I pretty much have that now. If I have to dread going to work in the morning, something has to change. I’ve been lucky to work with some amazing people in a variety of jobs in my life - some of which people would ‘low class’; but they’ve all introduced me to great people, taught me countless things, and presented me with opportunities. That’s all I could ever ask for!
Dream place to live. Hmm. I don’t pine for someplace exotic - I’m a country boy at heart and a city boy in practice. I dig myself these mountains of Vermont, and perhaps secretly pine for the days when I can be out of the city and a bit more secluded. But…not too secluded.
Date? Oh man. Even in my last serious relationship we didn’t do to much ‘Dating’. The act of dating is horrible, haha. Ultimately just hanging with someone, being real - something with a lot of laughter is all I need to make me smitten. I really dig a lady with a great sense of humor - it’s like 90% of the battle. Laughter defuses the stress of connecting with people and gives you a direct line to who they are.
Wanting to see a movie helps too. Movies are great. If I’m on a date we’ll laugh after the movie because, come on…I want to watch the movie. But at least then I’ll know you like movies.
