Exploring The Wave Cave

Lately I have been struggling with motivation to workout in a traditional gym setting. I find myself actually losing any drive to really do anything physical once inside the gym walls. I never used to be like that… Has anyone else ever experienced this or am I some weirdo that has an excuse to not […]

Valley of Fire State Park

I have been reflecting a lot recently on life and how time should be spent. I struggle constantly with the notation that humans…specifically me shouldn’t be forced to sit at a desk all day under fake lightening to earn a living. My heart sinks at the thought of that being my life until I turn […]
