Keeping Up

Keeping Up

Keeping Up by Phillip Holland I’m tired of birthdays.  It’s all Facebook’s fault. Don’t misunderstand.  I love my friends.  I love celebrating with them.  I know what a blessing it is to wake up each and every day.  When we’re young,...
What is your “Dope”?

What is your “Dope”?

Growing up, I remember that adults referred to every single drug by one name – dope.  Marijuana, cocaine, ecstasy, heroin, LSD – all dope.  It drove me mad, because it sounded like they equated the act of smoking one joint with being a meth head.  Why...
Not Me-ism

Not Me-ism

At the ripe age of 34, I feel like I have enough life experience to have something worth looking back on.  Certainly, I’m not writing memoirs or imparting life lessons to the youth yet, but I’m over the humps of the reckless abandon of childhood, the blind...

Back To Blogging?

Two and a half years ago, I quit my job at an intellectual law firm.  The plan, as detailed in a previous blog post, was to provide social media marketing services for local small businesses. Things did not go according to plan. This was both a good thing and a bad...

AFI: #97, Bringing Up Baby

*Note: I’ve been holding onto this one because I didn’t want to post them out of order.  But its taking me forever to watch the next movie, so I figure I’ll just post this one and move along. Bringing Up Baby (1938) was apparently a box-office flop....

Oh No Phillip…What Did You Do This Time?

Well, by the time this post goes live, I will have done something semi-revolutionary (for me): I quit my job!   Now, unless things went worse than expected, I’m probably still employed.  I’ve never NOT given a two week notice, and this is no...
