What might have been

I think of her, sometimes, when I’m a little too lonely. Or when I drink too much. I think of how it could have been, between the two of us, had it all worked out. Had it been different, somehow, without the drama and the heartache. I think we’d have been happy. We’d have done […]

Three essential (and free!) apps you need right now

Computers come with a myriad of programs preinstalled, paid for by the software companies who write them. This helps lower the cost of the computer itself, but often dupes the consumer into paid subscription services that expire after the consumer grows to rely on them. Additionally, some Windows programs that just plain suck (surprise!). There […]

5 things men want women to know

5 things men want women to know

5 Aug 2011 | 2 Comments

Newsflash: The battle of the sexes isn’t a battle at all. It’s just miscommunication. Women don’t believe men mean what they say, and men believe women mean something different than what they say. Hell, just writing it down confuses me. The fix is a simple matter of taking what someone...

Drill Instructor duty, Parris Island: A retrospective

15 Feb 2011 | 9 Comments

I don’t intend this to be some exhaustive, bullshit guide on everything you need to know before coming out to The Island as a drill instructor. I’m sure San Diego is altogether different. In fact, I know it is because I’m a “Hollywood” Marine. I volunteered for Parris Island for...

Building a car PC – Part 1 – reasons why, parts list

So yeah, I decided to build a computer to replace the factory deck in my 2006 Nissan Frontier NISMO crew cab. I’m doing this for several reasons, but mainly because I dig computers and still have money that hasn’t been spent on hookers and whiskey. A lot of websites and...

His last contact with the woman was three years ago at the girl’s holiday recital. It was accidental. He arrived late, squeezing and weaving between camera wielding parents – all leaning awkwardly to get the perfect shot of little Johnny or Susie – and stood with his back against the...

My old Dell Inspiron E1505 laptop has been chugging along nicely for the last three years, being subject to a hand full of upgrades in the process. I’ve already burned through three batteries, two hard drives, and one memory stick, but overall it’s been the most reliable laptop I’ve owned...

The author.Born in the year of the Dragon, the author grudgingly accepts the fact he has too many interests and not enough time. A cyclist as long as he can remember, an avid yet inconsistent writer since age eleven, and a U.S. Marine since age twenty-one, the author also adds peak bagging, diving, snowboarding, and computers to his list of interests. Incidentally, he is aware of his inability to make a living from any but the Corps. The author accepts this as fact and remains optimistic. Feel free to drop him a line.
