Running, Don’t Ever Give Up

People always say, “I hate running.” I do too, but I have to. I love being able to get up and go, I love feeling the wind on my face, I love being outside and by myself. When I go to the gym I often find myself just doing cardio. Lifting weights for me is unappealing. I’m already a big guy, I have no use for trying to get big. I want to be trim and feel great.

Owning a Home is a Tough Job

It is one of those things that everyone strives for, but sometimes it is just a pain in the butt. My street is lined with mature trees. At night it is very dark on my street and in the fall it is a mess. All of those mature trees have thousands of leaves that fall to the ground. I try to blow them into a...
