    The Last Ten Years: A Retrospective Study

    The year 2020, and the start of a brand new decade starts in just a few weeks. Wow – mind blowing! I feel like the last ten years has just kind of flown by. I guess that’s what happens when you get older – time just kind of happens a little faster every single year. While the 2010s have indeed sped by like a police car chasing a Lamborghini, a lot still has happened in the last ten years. It’s my duty as a writer to introspect sometimes I guess. Document the changes. How has my life changed in the last ten years? What’s stayed the same? Who is Aaron…

    Shouting “Poopie” and the Crash that Followed

    When I was 19, I was quite unhinged. You never knew what I might do in any given situation. This should not surprise anyone who knows me well now, as I can still be pretty random at times. However, I guess I have matured a bit over the years as the story I am about to tell you would not happen today. I would be too shy to repeat these actions, and I would worry about looking like a dork. I mean, what if someone important saw me? Besides, today, I would also be afraid of annoying strangers. I guess these are all concerns that, did not cross my mind…

    2018: A Year in the Life

    It seems like 2018 just started, yet here we are – about to enter 2019. My 2017 was probably the hardest year I’ve ever had. I lost my mom )(not to mention my cat). I also had to cope with, and come to terms with my deformed feet. This was something I put off for way too long – mainly because a cure for my deformity does not exist. Still – I had to do something, as some of the symptoms were out of hand. So yeah – despite all the good things that happened in 2017, and there were a few good things, 2017 really took its toll on…

    The holidays: more than just the individual.

    I’ll be honest – this year, Christmas isn’t really exciting to me. My mom died just over a year ago, and the holidays are so much harder than I ever imagined they would be. Perhaps if I had kids or a bigger family, I’d be more into the holiday despite my mom no longer being with us. Now it’s just my dad and I, as well as my girlfriend.  I remember several years ago, I was playing a goofy Christmas song. A family friend asked “can we please stop the Christmas music?” He had no family left, save for a brother whom he barely talked to. I now understand his…

    The Curse of The Purple T-rex.

    Every year I do a fun, creepy, scary story for October. This year is no different. I’ll be telling the chilling tale of how I once turned into Bernie, the purple T-rex. Of course – this is fiction….or is it?  Enjoy this year’s story!  December 22nd, 1993. A group of ten or so of us decide to rent a cabin at the coast before the Christmas madness hits a few days later. It’s morning and I’m asleep, or so my bunkmates think. I decide to have a little fun and pretend I’m dreaming. “I love you…..you love me,” I sing, supposedly sleeping. “Look – Aaron’s dreaming….” I hear someone say. …
