Well, this was bound to happen eventually; a Dennis the Menace reference. After all, people ignore the TK and think my first name is Dennis everywhere I go anyway. So growing up I had a ton of people always asking me if I liked Dennis the Menace. Truthfully, I never saw the super old show that preceded my life altogether by many years, but I did actually like the movie that came out when I was a kid. The coolest thing about Dennis the Menace was those sick maneuvers he could pull with that slingshot of his.
I couldn’t have been more than six years old when I finally got a slingshot of my own. Likewise, I had every kind of NERF gun, laser tag apparatus, and plastic gun a growing boy could ever want. It didn’t take long for me to recognize the strengths and weaknesses of all my different bad guy destroying weapons. It was fun to dress up like a soldier and wear my grandfathers old Army uniforms around the house with my plastic guns in my holsters. I always knew none of the weapons I had with me were real though. I knew that it wasn’t easy to get a gun if my parents even allowed me to have one since I live in New Jersey. To my grandparents delight, this means I would carry around harmless plastic toys that couldn’t do a bit of damage to anything.

Loving money is a very bad idea, and a complete waste of time. However, there is a pretty valuable lesson wrapped around that dirty money sitting in the bottom of your pocket if you just look close enough.read more

“I am eating healthy and working out and yet I still cannot to lose weight.” This is something I hear quite often and to be honest I cannot point the finger because I am guilty of it myself. I also have heard “Eating healthy is just too hard.” This is one of my favorites, “I will never be fit because I am predispositioned to be overweight. Everyone in my family has dealt with weight issues so it’s something I cannot change.” Now this is something that you may not want to hear, but if this is you, I am going to tell you right now, they are all excuses.read more
“Give the world the best you have and the best will come back to you.” This is one of my favorite quotes of all time, and before ending college, I truly believed that the world was going to give me the very best of it every day. However, in the last several months, looking for a job that fits all my personal and professional goals, has led me to doubt whether this quote can be true or not.read more
