Still Here :)

Welp. It's been over a year. I can't say this wasn't expected. Discipline has always been one of my weaker points, and unless I go out of my way to make something into a routine - it just doesn't get done. There are actually quite a few reasons why I haven't made a post in so long. Mundane reasons, like procrastination, work, and anxiousness over actually putting something out there. Less mundane reasons too, like my father going into severe heart failure and needing a transplant. Wasn't really ...

Restlessness and Self-Improvement

I'm genuinely not surprised. Committing to a regular, scheduled task like maintaining a blog or journal has never been my strong suit. The last update came two months after my first real post, this one's coming three months after that. I swear I'm not going to wait 4 months for the next one - at least I hope not. Let's start out with an update on how things have been going for me. Going alright honestly. Can't complain, and I mean that with all sincerity. I have a good job, my family's with me, ...

Moral Relativism

I didn't intend for the first real post to come so late, but better late than never I suppose. I've wanted to explore the idea of moral relativism for a long time now. By explore, I mean to go beyond the simple definition of it. In simplest terms, moral relativism can be defined as the idea there is no universal or absolute set of moral principles. Let's briefly talk about this definition first. While I understand what many mean when they say this, I don't fully agree. It's true that what one cu...

A Brief Introduction

I'm actually quite surprised at how excited I was at the idea of a blog. While I would say I'm a writer, it's safe to say I've never actually produced too much work - outside of academic courses anyways. I've long since felt a strange nostalgia for the golden days of Blogger and Blogspot. During then, I would browse through their frontpages and stumble upon a post from someone recounting their latest vacation. For some reason, I found these oddly entertaining. Despite being called "micro-blogg...
