What pointless lies do you tell? And do they also involve acting?

Isn’t it funny how often we lie for silly and pointless reasons?

I find that I do this a lot, often throwing in my extensive acting skills in order to make the lies seem more plausible. Sometimes I lie because I am trying to be polite and other times I really don’t know why the lies come out, they just do.

Here are some of the top times that I lie for really stupid reasons. I am betting that some of you do can relate to these situations. Continue reading “What pointless lies do you tell? And do they also involve acting?”

As a child, I would have hated several items that I love now

While trying to figure out how to work my new phone recently, I was struck by how excited I am to have this amazing new object.

I also thought, though, about how I when I was growing up, I never would have imagined I could be thrilled about the thought of a new phone.

Sure, phones were completely different back then, but I think elementary school Nick Claussen would be disappointed to learn that the adult version would one day be super excited over a new phone.

“Adult Nick is even geekier than I am,” I might have said while my voice cracked. “I hate talking on the phone. Why would I be excited about getting a new phone?” Continue reading “As a child, I would have hated several items that I love now”

Simple projects often turn into epic adventures

It’s funny how a simple, small project can often lead to a larger project and then to another and another until you are somehow cutting down a tree.

This happened to me recently when I had a few days off of work and decided to cut the grass in the yard.

“This will be easy,” I thought to myself smugly. “I sure am smart.” Continue reading “Simple projects often turn into epic adventures”

Top 5 places I don’t like to clean

I don’t hate cleaning, but there are certain parts of it that I often “forget” to focus on.

If I can just sweep the floor, vacuum or maybe clean a few counters, I’m actually pretty happy. It’s nice to listen to music and do some cleaning in those instances.

The problem comes when I see other spots that I know I should clean, but I don’t because I detest them. With that in mind, our judges have put together this list of Top 5 places that I don’t like to clean. Continue reading “Top 5 places I don’t like to clean”

Confessions of a bad blogger

I’ve been a bad blogger recently.

It’s not that I’ve written anything bad, upsetting or even too boring, it’s just that I haven’t actually written anything.

So, in order to get back to writing again, I have put together this list of excuses I have for not writing, along with some of the ideas I wanted to write about but then failed at miserably. Continue reading “Confessions of a bad blogger”

Avengers: Endgame: The Column

Now that Avengers: Endgame is finally almost here, we are bound to see plenty of pointless articles about the movie in order to draw in readers.

This is one of them. I will do whatever it takes to get more readers.

Whatever it takes.

I do, though, have several important comments and questions about the movie before it finally gets here and dominates the media and the box office.

A few words in support of procrastination

Too often people talk about procrastinating as if it’s a bad thing.

Sure, there are good aspects to finishing projects quickly, but there are also numerous positives related to delaying your work.

Often when I am supposed to be doing something like completing a work project, cleaning the living room or tying my shoes, I get interrupted by important thoughts that must be pondered. I see this as a positive example of prioritizing. Continue reading “A few words in support of procrastination”
