This site is primarily focused on:
- My life — duh, it’s a blog, people! : ) No seriously, I’ll be definitely highlighting the ups and downs of my long-term dream to become a best-selling author. And since I’ve been writing since I was like 10, I’ll be going at this thing hard; like I do everything in life. But I also write a lot about the following items, as well.
- Motivation and dreams. (Living life to the fullest).
- Eastern philosophy. (I try to balance the nut-case, Marine side of my life with the Eastern-philosophy idea of slowing down and living in the moment.)
- And, of course, great writing! I like to post just amazing examples of writing.
One thing many people appreciate about this blog are the categories.
So, need some motivation? Click on the category of “Motivation” on the right-hand side of the page (about half-way down). You can read reams of posts I’ve linked to that are truly inspiring.
Same thing if you need to slow down and get away from this Western lifestyle that oppresses us all. Just click on “Eastern philosophy” and you’ll find your stress gone in no time.
One thing this blog does not get into is politics. I love politics, but I’m a moderate and I hate both political parties.
Finally, I used to write a lot about foreign policy and national security items on here, but I decides to separate that out into a different blog. It’s here: Marine Watch: A blog on American foreign policy
