Trying to step away from social media and plug into my life

I’ve been feeling the drain again when it comes to social media. I’m not quite sure what it is….an overload, perhaps? Whatever it is, I just find myself borderline depressed at times thinking about how much time I spend on some social media platform like Facebook. Posting updates of what I did today, a greatContinue reading “Trying to step away from social media and plug into my life”

Generating some Mass Appeal

Despite leaving TV news behind me some months back, I made a brief return to television recently. I had the absolute pleasure recently of appearing on the mid-morning program, “Mass Appeal” to talk about some of the lessons learned during my first year of fatherhood. Unfortunately, WordPress does not allow me to embed the videoContinue reading “Generating some Mass Appeal”

Riddle Me This…

There are some things that you just never part with. Although I am admittedly a huge fan of purging and ridding the house of things that take up unnecessary space or has just accumulated over the years, there are still a few things that I know I will just always hold on to.

At 9 months old, there was no candy to be found in his basket, but he was in love with the large, colorful plastic eggs that were inside.

Ever since we’ve become parents, it has become, as expected, a lot more difficult to get together with friends and family, especially in the frequency that we used to. Before, it was fairly easy to set up a coffee meeting with our friends or go grab dinner with some family without much challenge. As I’veContinue reading “Social Fridays”

Why Superman matters

I recently mentioned how, while home with the baby being sick, I spent some time watching cartoons on Netflix. The two animated films I watched while the baby napped were Justice League: Doom and Superman vs the Elite, both part of the ongoing releases of animated movies across the DC Comic Universe from Bruce TimmContinue reading “Why Superman matters”

Turning the pages of comics and time…

Sometimes repeating something from your past can make you realize just how much the future has changed. This past weekend, I indulged my inner-dork and met up with some old friends to go to a comic convention about an hour side. It’s one of those occasional traditions that we’ve done since adolescence. Some things haveContinue reading “Turning the pages of comics and time…”

Making ‘cents’ when it comes to education

I think every parent wants their child to have better opportunities than they were able to have, or afford. Just about anyone with a child wants their child to be able to have a better life than their own (and if they don’t, then maybe they should re-think this whole parent thing). With that inContinue reading “Making ‘cents’ when it comes to education”
