Thirty days, thirty posts.

I blogged daily for the last thirty days.

My goal was to blog everyday for thirty days, mostly just to see if I can do it. It was an exercise to practice consistency and express creativity. I enjoyed writing, drawing, taking photos and shooting videos for the blog.

There were several posts I wish I would have spent more time on. There were some ideas I wanted to explore further. Some posts I wanted to take my time polishing. So I am going to focus less on daily content and more on the quality of the content. I don’t have any new, groundbreaking ideas, but I think I have some unique angles and experiences that may interest a few people.

I am humbled and honored that people took time out of their days to read this blog. To those of you: thank you so much. I really appreciate your time and attention. ありがとうございます。

If you have any comments, please post them below. I would love to hear what you liked, what you didn’t like, and what you would like to see more of on this blog.

Thanks for checking out this halfsie’s musings. またね!

The influence of words spoken into me.

I am largely shaped by the words spoken to me.

In middle school, my dad mentioned how saying “dude” isn’t cool, or something to that nature. To this day, I hardly ever say “dude.” I say “man.”

In high school, I wore a brown belt with a black pair of pants. Ugly, I know, and Jess informed me how it was a “fashion faux pas.” For the last decade, not once did I wear brown with black.

When I helped out at a middle school camp, one of the leaders came up to me and told me something along the lines of how I was meant for greatness. That has had an impact on my life, even though I really didn’t have much of a relationship with him.

So take care when you say things. We have the ability to speak into people’s identity, and that is incredibly powerful.

They might never wear black with brown, no matter how fashionable it is, man.

the tongue is powerful

My personal blog.

I’ve blogged for websites before, but I’ve never had my own outlet.

This is my first personal blog where I can write about pretty much whatever I want.

Some things I’ll probably blog about:

  • Faith
  • Marriage
  • Parenthood
  • Soccer
  • Business
  • Movies
  • Television
  • Music
  • General life stuff
  • etc.

For now, the aim for this blog is for me to hone my writing and thinking. Hopefully, this exercise will force some growth in me.

Happy Sunday!
