You say morbid, I say prepared

Posted by Marko on September 13, 2020 in Off Topic |

A little over two years ago I started carrying a note with me inside of my wallet. I keep it behind my license – just in case. In case for what? Well, in case something happens to me and I’m unable to talk.

I keep it tucked between my license and body donor ID card. I figured those would be the two cards people would want to see most – unless somebody was robbing my unconscious body. Not cool people, not cool. Some may call me paranoid or morbid, but I like to think of it as being prepared. Death doesn’t scare me as much as not being able to say goodbye. And having so many people I care about in other states, I realized that I would never know if something happened to them. Read more…


Oops…forgot a title

I think I’m pretty honest in my blog. I rarely have one of those moments where I stop myself from writing something because someone I know reads this. I’m a fairly open person and sometimes I think I might share too much. I’ve given my blog URL out to family members in hopes that they’d […]


Does it happen to you?

Posted by Marko on August 7, 2020 in Off Topic |

I’m taking a shower, showing off my vocal skills like the rock star I am, completely oblivious to what I’m doing. I get out, wrap my hair in a towel and dry myself off. I unwrap my hair and as soon as I pull a brush through it i ask myself out loud, “Did I […]


I never liked ripping off band-aids

Posted by Marko on July 23, 2020 in Off Topic |

What am I hanging onto? I’ve been asking myself that a lot this last week. The situation is obviously less than ideal. If I were giving advice to anyone else I would tell them to walk and they deserve so much better. Realizing that this relationship isn’t optimal, why do I continue to prolong the […]


I can’t think of an awesome enough title

Posted by Marko on July 12, 2020 in Off Topic |

If you were to ask me what I did yesterday, I would respond, “only the most awesomest things ever!” It all began around 9:30 a.m. My cousin Sara, her boyfriend, his son and some dude picked me up to head downtown for the St. Patrick’s Day parade. It was exciting to look out of the […]

When I think of the word “maid” doing work doesn’t come to mind. Beer maid – They get your beer for you so you don’t have to. Nursey maid – Aren’t these the same as nannies? Well, whatever, they take care of the kiddies for you. Kitchen maid – Also known as a personal chef […]


I carried a watermelon!

I forgot how much I love “Dirty Dancing.” I’m not sure what it is about that movie that just makes me swoon when I watch it. I get the biggest smile when Johnny says “nobody puts Baby in the corner.” Ugh! Love it! Seriously, one of my favorite movies of all time.When I was younger […]

This weekend has been full of ups and downs. The news I received Thursday night has pretty much left me shocked, worried, happy and heartbroken. Can I roll those all into one? I’m doing it anyway. I have been trying to pace myself and control tears by telling myself that “hey, my relationship isn’t over […]


I get by with a little help from my friends

Posted by Marko on May 9, 2020 in Off Topic |

I’m a bit late with this post and most of the bloggers who were there beat me with their posts.That’s okay. I didn’t want to bombard our shared readers with 8 different stories of the same evening 🙂 So consider my laziness a gift to you. Despite what I wrote in an earlier post, I […]


Neck Troubles

Posted by Marko on April 24, 2020 in Off Topic |

I have a love/hate relationship with my neck. For the last two months I’ve been experiencing a lot of neck pain. I switched to a memory foam pillow in hopes it would help keep my neck properly angled while sleeping. It ended up making the pain worse. I’ve been switching back and forth between that […]
