I heard this interview today while driving… had me crying… :)


Dan Savage, on his own experiences growing up as a gay teenager: [full interview on Fresh Air here“The bullied straight kid goes home to a shoulder to cry on and support and can talk freely about his experience at school and why he’s being bullied. I couldn’t go home and open up to my parents. I did think about suicide briefly — not because the bullying had gotten so bad, but because I thought that it would be the good Catholic-son thing to do for my parents.”

Sex Trafficking and the Super Bowl


Oh, oh, ohhhhhh. Can we please take this super sporting event, this chips-and-chicken-wings national holy day, to pray for the girls and women and men ensnared in the sex trade? Please?

(my friend) I love my grandma to death but she’s really effing up my game right now.


In honor of the upcoming MLB playoffs… enjoy.


About two weeks ago my Jetta reached its 100k mile! I had been anticipating this epic milestone, but came so close to missing it. I realized that I had reached 100k while driving on the freeway and speaking with my mom on the phone. 

Yes, I slowed down to 29mph ON THE FREEWAY in order to take this picture.


For quite some time now, I’ve felt the tug to share my thoughts and experiences thru a blog, but today is the day where that tug becomes a reality. This is not because I enjoy writing (it takes me forever!), or because I believe my life is a “must read.” Instead, it’s because there is so much to think about and even more to share. 

The older I get, the harder it becomes to remember things in my life and that is unfortunate. Can you remember every affirming and kind word anyone has ever told you? I can’t. Have you forgotten a time where you had some great laughs or felt overwhelming fear? Me too. How about a random conversation, question, or quote that caused you to think, I mean really think, about your life and where it’s heading? Yup, me too!

I hope this blog deal helps me not forget as much stuff because I would like to look back at my life and see how much God has blessed me.

Although I can, and probably should, keep a journal for myself, I decided to blog and share the random and not so random things in my life with you because we can learn a lot from each other. 

We all have something to bring to the table, so I hope you’re able to find some interest in my thoughts and/or experiences.

Oh, it’s fine if you don’t like my thoughts and experiences because its NONYABUSINESS anyway ;-)
