It's kind of a obligatory thing in the military to report something like that up the chain of command. Admittedly my face was … Continue reading Bar Fight #4
Till death do us part, right? Recently a friend was discussing an acquaintance who had broken up with his girlfriend because "he was no longer physically attracted to her." My friend thought this was shallow. It may be, but I also thought it kind of made sense, if you aren't attracted, why stay together? Although … Continue reading When should a marriage end?

As a military member, I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with patriotism. I do love my country, and I took an oath to support and defend the constitution, which I take seriously. However, blind patriotism, and appeals to outright nationalism, I see as very dangerous. Often times statements like that are for domestic political … Continue reading Patriotism

Assuming feelings … Continue reading Reconnecting
Who enjoys casual dating? Maybe it's something women like more than men? I've never been a fan, my mindset has always been if I don't see myself marrying the person then we're just wasting time. That might be a little harsh though. That mindset tends to make you want to move quickly from one potential … Continue reading Casual Dating
