Mindblown: a blog about philosophy.

  • My Friend

    My Friend

    The guy who lives next door to me is really interested in having a garden and keeping it available. He was telling me about all the styles of plants and stuff he has in there and while I haven’t heard of most of them it’s the kind of thing where I think I will probably […]

  • Studying Karate

    Studying Karate

    Martial arts have been something I want to learn, and I think that I am going to start training. I have gotten some good information recently about Tae Kwon Do and it seems like something I would enjoy. There are a few other styles I am interested in as well, but I will probably start […]

  • Crazy Ideas

    Crazy Ideas

    When I am not running, or even while I am running, I will think about some of the different things I would like to try. One of those things is hang gliding. Seriously, how incredibly thrilling does that seem? It’s like you’re flying but there’s no engine and you’re just up there flying around and […]

  • I Watch A Lot Of House Hunting Shows

    I Watch A Lot Of House Hunting Shows

    I like to look at homes that are for sale and for rent even when I have no intention of moving. I watch a lot of HGTV and even though I don’t know much about decorating or anything I still like to see how they decorate their homes. I like to watch House Hunters and […]

  • Relationship Drama

    Relationship Drama

    My girlfriend has been acting differently recently.  She seems to be getting super annoyed at just about everything which is pretty unlike her.  At first I didn’t mind and I figured she was just having a bad day or whatever, but it seems like it’s all the time now and it’s getting to the point […]

  • About To Move

    About To Move

    I just ordered some wire shelves in preparation of my move next month.  I am moving closer to my job which will be nice but I’m going to miss living in the city. That is right you heard it right; this city snob is moving to the suburbs. From my perspective right now there is […]

  • My Own Style

    My Own Style

    Life hit me pretty hard last month. My girlfriend of three years decided it was time to call it quits. To be honest, we were growing apart. I felt it, I knew it, and I had really started to prepare for it. But, I’m a young guy…I’ll bounce back. I can handle my own affairs […]

  • Exploring My Options

    Exploring My Options

    As I’m getting older, I’m finding myself with a bit more money in the savings account and a willingness to take a few more risks to make that money work for me. When I was younger, living what seemed like a life destined to remain paycheck-to-paycheck forever, investing was never an option. Now that I […]

  • Wise Words From Mr. Franklin

    Wise Words From Mr. Franklin

    Expanding on one of the topics I mentioned in my New Years post, I’ve recently been looking for more ways to save money.  Many people focus on trying to make more money (usually so they can buy more things), and while I am definitely interested in that, I am currently more focused on saving more […]

  • Pulling It Together

    Pulling It Together

    I need to get my life together and it starts with my finances or lack thereof. My main problem is a couple credit cards that have high interest rates. I can make the payments on them but they are the minimum payments and barely anything goes towards the principal. I looked at one of them […]
