My Thoughts
My Thoughts About Many Things

This is a new section inspired by the 2016 presidential election and the turmoil which president elect Donald Trump is creating in what used to be a great country. Being thousands of miles away from America and watching American society degrade into a violent and paranoid culture made me almost feel guilty for not being there and helping to effect change. I decided, pending my return home, that I would use this site as a means to get my message across and vent, if you will, and get the things that are bothering me out and online. I began this section this month, November 2016, and plan to add much more in the coming weeks.

Really I cannot believe what has transpired in America over the almost eight years since I came to Japan.

American society has become even more paranoid, violent, self-centered, and materialistic. Many things about my country are bothering me very deeply and I am going to post about all of them.

In Case You're Wondering

I am not a professional writer, which I am unabashed to indicate on every page. In fact, I am really not that good at writing at all. I am not a political analyst, therapist, psychologist, philosopher, or motivational speaker. I am simply someone who is very upset and disturbed by the changes going on in my country and decided to use my site to hopefully make some positive changes. My only hope is that these pages reach as many people as possible and that the current trends in American society, and the worlds, are reversed.
