PEOPLE R $#!T | Reality Checks

I hate writing posts like this…but this is the Reasonable Dose. Facts over Feelings. Dammit! It’s true. People are (sometimes) ABSOLUTE TRASH! Disclaimer: I’m a very hopeful person. I had to write sometimes above because from time to time, the paths of good people cross. From time to time, us good people, can be caught on a good day, when they forget just how bad MOST people are and there can be genuine connections made. That’s why I said sometimes. I love people. I love what we are capable of. I also loathe what we are capable of. What are...

Women vs The Stick Shift

I WROTE THIS BACK IN 2015 – Keep that in mind as you read this… I’m married with 2 daughters and I notice lots of differences between how men and women act in different situations. I love watching the differences and trying my best to dissect why this is the case. Recently, my wife (FindingTiffany) was in a car accident. She’s ok. But she was driving our family SUV on the way to work was rear-ended, and had to drive another car we have that’s a stick-shift while our family car, an automatic, was being fixed. I taught her how...

ONLY GOD CAN JUDGE ME…Right?!

Did you ever hear that saying? ONLY GOD CAN JUDGE ME Ever say it yourself? I do – well I did… I think that we only follow God because we can’t hear His voice. OR we don’t realize that the voice we hear is our own. His Voice is one of our own creation – I mean. Here’s are a few examples:  “Wow, I got an overdraft from the bank! “God is looking out for me.” Our 2nd child was stillborn…it was terrible. “We shouldn’t ever question God’s motives.” “I went in for a physical, and they caught my CANCER...

5/25 – Mr. Warren Buffett’s Strategy Gift to Me!

Focusing on myself was difficult. I couldn’t find direction, I had to learn to focus on myself, and I wasn’t sure how to. Having no idea how to really decipher what were the most important ways to spend my time, something had to be done.  Reading books, watching videos, and blog posts couldn’t give me a quick and clear look at what I needed to make a priority vs. what was a waste of time.  Then, I stumbled upon an article on Medium where Warren Buffett explained how he prioritizes things. He struggled with the same direction paradox that I...

How can women be expected to select “Mr. Right”?

We all (Men) present the same initially.  Let’s take it from the top. If you are a woman, you should probably expect that if a man is talking to you, he’s ‘interested’ in you. Right?! OBVI! ofc This (if he’s talking to you he likes you) would be a ‘fair’ assessment to make of any communication you might have with a (most) man.  This, of course, isn’t always the case BUT…it’s more likely than not. If he’s talking to you he’s “interested” in you. It goes a little like this… You order Starbucks from your Starbucks app and head inside...

Teachers COULD be paid more, but they SHOULDN’T be!

A “Teacher” probably doesn’t accurately capture or represent all of the responsibilities of a “Teacher”. Teachers in fact are: Babysitters Correctional Officers Counselors Punching Bags Teachers (eventually) Social Workers What a ‘Teacher’ IS NOT A Parent Teachers spend incredible amounts of time with their students. 6 hours or more in most cases. More than the actual parents in most cases. Parents are still…parents. Teachers should never forget this fact.  The parent should also never forget that a teacher, in some ways, may know their child better than they do.  WHAT A HORRIBLE CONUNDRUM, on both sides. A Therapist Teachers prepare themselves...

You can’t put the genie back in the bottle…

We tend to get pretty upset at our current set of circumstances…I know I do. But… our actions or inactions things we say or don’t say coupled with the things we’ve seen, or haven’t seen …can shape our future decisions and current perspectives. Our current circumstances are likely a result of the things from our past, that are now affecting our present situation(s). Life is a fickle thing, and it’s deceived me more times than I can count. It’s usually a hard pill to swallow when I feel like someone is over-correcting, overblowing, overstating, over exaggerating, the things that I’ve...

I’m here…just preoccupied. I’ve been unfair to you.

Sometimes you got a knowledge that it’s OK to pivot. I have pivoted to a different project for now, but I did make one mistake. I dropped one person fully to pick up another. Maybe in theory that sounds great, but now I’m not so sure. I’ve been keeping lists on my iPhone. These lists have been titled reasonabledose post ideas, reasonabledose video ideas, and reasonabledose ideas. That’s unfair to leave all of that to die on the vine. Maybe I can’t create the lengthy videos that have lots and lots of research behind them like at once wanted to....

Donna Wasn’t Racist

When I started my career as a work-study in my senior year of High School, I was BY FAR the youngest person in the office, at 17 years old.  Everyone liked me, and I liked everyone. So, from the time the school year started up to Halloween, I already had two months in the office under my belt.  There was a woman, Donna, who wasn’t in my chain of command, or even in my direct office. She was in the adjacent office, but pretty close by.  Donna was a woman from a semi-rural, semi-suburban part of Anne Arundel County in...
