The State Of The Union Address – What I Learned | The Recreational Writer

State Of the Uniion | The Recreational Writer

To begin, and for complete transparency, this is a political article. Not necessarily political in the way you may think, but does fall within the political realm. I am not going to put one “party” over the other “party”, but merely demonstrate problems that I saw that came out of the, very limited, coverage of the State of The Union Address. Frankly, I preferred to watch the Curse of Oak Island on the History Channel and when that ended at 10PM, the remaining time of the Tampa Bay Lightning hockey game on Sun.

Why Florida Needs Labor Laws | The Recreational Writer

Before I begin this article, let me clarify something. I am a pretty outspoken conservative. I dislike government interference into the daily lives of Americans, and, specifically, me. I believe wholeheartedly in Capitalism, and all that it has created, and the opportunities provided. I believe that if you are unhappy somewhere, you have the right to find somewhere else. Be it work, or any other aspect of life. However, I feel that the last 8 years diminished this possibility, especially with available jobs being less than lackluster, due in large part because of policies instituted in the last eight years. When there simply is no job market, then sometimes there does become a necessity for checks and balances. Thus, I begin.

Why Write? | The Recreational Writer (RecreationalWriter.com)

Panama City Beach Florida Sunset | RecreationalWriter.com

I have taken a lot of time going back and forth on this whole blog idea thing. After all, why should I have a blog? Am I interesting enough for people to actually care?

Probably not.

Perhaps that is what everyone thinks when they are in the process of deciding if they should create a blog, or website, or YouTube channel. We are but one person in a world of billions. What would I say (if writing) or do (if YouTube) that any of those billions of people with their own lives, own time and own everyday goings on and time constraints.

New Year’s Resolution | The Recreational Writer (RecreationalWriter.com)

Hello readers! 👋
I have been trying to to decide what I wanted to write about, and if I wanted this to be a single topic site, or just off the cuff what I feel about talking about that day.
Maybe a pet peeve site.
I have not decided.
So for now, it is going to be off the cuff. In particular, it came to my attention recently that I have gained over 20 pounds in less than 8 months.
20.
Especially for me, that is a lot.
So, the first step of me being able to make a resolution to curb that, and take more time for my health, is the admission that I indeed need to focus more.
I hope to use this blog to document, at least periodically, my progress on these changes throughout 2018.
I also hope that be able to write about what works for me, what doesn’t, and what’s plain crazy.
Make no mistake, I highly doubt that this will ever be a ‘expert fitness blog’ for I am in no way, expressed or implied, a fitness expert. Highly evident over the course of the year…
But, hopefully I can share accomplishments that can be used by others that need ideas or things to try.
The ultimate goal, regardless of its makeup, is for my blog to be both entertaining and helpful.
Please feel free to subscribe for new posts. I don’t, and won’t, spam. I hate spam as much or more than anyone… Unless it’s cooked in butter… 🤣
