On Depression

It could be that the connected world that we live in makes us all far more aware of this, but there are too many people as of late who have been lost far too soon. Lately I’ve been wondering how much of that is just because we don’t talk about mental health struggles the same …

2018 in Review

2018. That was a year eh? I started living somewhere other than Chicago for the first time in 11 years, I found myself truly band-less for the first time in 15 years, and a variety of anxiety and depression that comes along with big life changes like that. In a lot of ways this last …

2017 in Review

2017 is in the books, and what a strange year it was.  A crappy year in so many ways: politics being a mess, every celebrity being a sex monster, and a bunch of friend drama.  But it was also an incredibly joyous and momentous year for me personally: bought a house in Grand Rapids, had …

2016 In Review

Time to do my annual look back, and let the record show I did technically start this before February (in case I don’t actually finish it tonight).  2016 came and went even faster than 2015, and in a popular culture sense, that was fine, as it was a real crappy year. Personally though, Avery kept …

2015 in Review

Well, it’s February, so I should probably post my annual look back at the previous year. Go figure, I actually thought over New Year’s Weekend “oh, I could get a start on my year in review post!” And then I decided to have dinner instead. And then it was February. 2015 came and went so …

So Long Buddy

This past Wednesday, my grandfather Ty Cobb Wallace (better known as Bomp) left this world, less than a month shy of his 96th birthday.  He always told me that he wanted to live until he was 120 where to buy Phentermine US and be shot by a jealous husband.  While he didn’t quite make it …

2014 in Review

Another year in the books, and while all years bring some change in their own way, this one obviously brought a big one.  It’s funny to think that when I was typing up my 2013 in review, I was only about a month out from discovering that I would become a father in 2014.  Crazy …

2013 In Review

Well here’s the one time all year that I actually update my blog. I guess maybe I should rename this to “Morgan’s once a year ruminations on the previous year”. So another year has gone by, and as per usual, I’m gonna take a look back at it, both from a personal perspective, and a …

2012 in Review

Holy crap, so the last post I made was 2011 in review over a year ago.  I think my blogging instinct is officially dead.  And as much as I almost let this whole year in review thing die this year, it’s one tradition I’m just not ready to give up on yet.  So since we’re …

2011 in Review

Every year it seems like I put this out later.  So I’m sorry for my lateness on this, but it’s still January, so it counts right? So Morgan, since I know you like to get sentimental, here’s the quick links to previous years – 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005.  And here’s some highlights of what …
