Have you ever had one of those life events that just opens up some crazy can of worms that has to change everything? Ever have to tell one of those stories where you don’t know where you should even start? A story where even the beginning is a poor choice? Let me try to start it, even though, no matter where I start it, it loses the point. Ugh….
Recently, my mother passed away. As with most parental passings it caused quite a bit of emotional discharge from those closest. And with all emotional discharge comes the things that you just cannot explain. The problem with starting the story here is that the issues started months before her passing, it started with her getting sick.

For my English Comp 2 class, I chose Common Core for one of the two major research papers. This paper was actually pretty fun to research, because it was about education in Oklahoma. I already knew, after moving here and seeing the step-daughter's school system is one of the worst school systems I have ever personally seen....
The fact is, Oklahoma ranks extremely low in its education and it shows. If something isn't done to fix this runaway state government, we'll find that Oklahoma will be dragging the entire state down into the abyss of uneducation.... Anyways, here's the research paper, hope you enjoy it!

Many times on my blog, including the future, I’ve written about the villains in my life. I’ve had many, many people do me wrong over the years, or simply be evil people. Every time I think I see one that is the winner, someone else shows up to take the cake. From the drugged up woman whom I used to live next to that berated her children in public, to the mother-in-law, to my own dad, I’ve seen a ton of people do truly bullshit things to people or even to me.
But I’m here to say that I’m not immune to the evils. In fact, I’ve never claimed to be a hero, I’ve been a villain in many a person’s story. How could I be human and not be? But in the end, I have to live the best life I can, and sometimes that means stepping on toes.

There's no ifs-ans-or butts about it, Net Neutrality is a huge issue that changes weekly. For my English 2 class, I wrote this paper as the first of two major Research Papers due over the Semester. Honestly, it was probably the most fun research paper I've ever done.
Why? Mainly because I didn't honestly know that much about Net Neutrality and I've found that most people don't. Over the course of the research, I found many amazing websites that broke it down in amazing ways. I found writing this paper the most informative thing I've ever done about any form of issue. I hope you enjoy it!

There’s something beautiful to me about stories where some guy goes on some kind of elaborate journey to find happiness. I think it reminds me of my own journey. I know at the beginning of it all I felt like it was going to be some epic thing….
My journey started with a simple concept. Well…I say it was simple. It all started with the search for love, who I am, what happiness was, and the escape from the madness that dwelled within me from being stuck in the dead end of dead ends. At 21, I had already had two crazy brushes with love and one relationship where it was obvious that nothing was going to work out. The pieces of my heart were not going to pick themselves up by themselves and nothing was ever going to be picked up within the confines of the life I was living. So, I set off….
