How YOU doin? The weather has been either nice and spring-like or ICE COLD. BRRRRRRR. I am moving across town soon. I just deleted all my social media accounts (TikTok, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram, Linkedin) and talk about why. Talk includes the season of lent and my previous porn addiction. 5:09 to 9:26. By the way, if you delete social media they give you 30 days to change your mind. (This shocked my therapist too!) He...

HElloooooo :) This week I am deleting social media so it is going to be a weird adventure. Stay tuned for more information next week! This episode I think is harmless, some of the things inside can be dangerous but they wont hurt your ears. I reference the breakfast story with Jesus and his disciples John 21: 1-14. Topics start at 8:07! To when there is the speed of light To when I went hunting To when I shot a gun I also menti...

Hey pal, Fun fact: Someone in high school introduced me to the word "pal" and every time I say it I think of her :') As we speak, the right half of my face (including my teeth) are numb :p The numbness made it's way to my ear even. Uhhhhhhhhh. Why my dentist wanted me triple numbed, I do not know. Here we are though! (what else can I tell you right now?) Quack! There is a simple interactive prayer within topic one ...

Well hello there friend, I made another batch of cookie dough and cannot figure out which ingredient I forgot to add :( Does anybody know? Or maybe I put too much butter in it. Bleh! I think all of these topics are somewhat dangerous so please either do not try them at home or be very very careful when doing them. Topics start at 6:51! To when I made a giant snapper bomb To when you smell too many chemicals To when I dug that snow ...

Well, wow. Haha hi :p Emotions. We are nearing a full year of Genuinely Quirky episodes and if you have been with me since the start or you are just now joining, thank you :) (Or if you are somewhere in between!) It's been a journey and thanks for coming along. Here I express some frustration but it is just an observation. I also confess my impatience with not getting what I want. Yikes! The polar vortex I think has passed. It...

BLLLAAAAAAAHHHHHH, Hi :) All of the sudden it feels like there's a lot of stuff to get done. (Deep breaths.) Church and God and Jesus are sprinkled throughout this. Along, with a few philosophical thoughts. It feels like one solid topic though, but it's three. Like the Trinity! Topics start at 6:44! To when you play computer games Genesis 3: 8-9 To when you feel slowed down Romans 8: 28 To when it's hard to get moving ...

Wow this year is FLYING by! (Smirk) If you are sensitive to current events in the United States, I share my Georgia senate runoff story which runs from 1:26 to 4:43. Other than political vortexes, I guess there is a polar vortex coming to Georgia soon so standby for how it goes. New things with me... I have an inhaler now, but hopefully won't need to use it ever. I have a desk job where I joyfully utilize my computer and commu...

10 days baby!! Until, you know, Christmas?? I bought myself the Billy Boys Cologne Roller from https://edccrate.com (https://edccrate.com) to celebrate. Make sure to use coupon code GQT15% Stay tuned for an update :p There are deep levels of vulnerability in here which include tears and the Lord. Just a reminder of how a journal or diary is an unfiltered log of your thoughts, this podcast is for the most part similar (I do not plan...

17 DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS!!!! I said I was entering Narnia as somewhat of a joke, but Riley is entering her dormant stage for the fall and winter!

I would love to hear stories from people who are listening, tell me about you and how you found Genuinely Quirky Things, please? I would l...

Hellooooo, Riley is my mental health :) These topics are fun. Welcome Sri Lanka to the family of listeners!

Yo, Here is the Instagram link to my lion drawing: https://www.instagram.com/p/B1ihmvbBchI/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link Thanks for being here. Within 24 hours, my relationship with Riley (my fern) came up in conversation three different times. So, I might as well tell you too… We’ve gone through a lot between toxicity, control, smothering, distance, silence, brokenness, new environments, and most recently realizing how she thri...

Greetins! There is a slight weight to this episode, but I would be lying if I said life were perfect all the time. Fall, election, Halloween, seasonal affective disorder (S.A.D), pandemic, etc. Thanks for making it this far 😊 Topic one and two include some side chatter of two hard times I witnessed, I did not include too much information though. Riley got hit hard by the hurricane but still stands strong! We had to do some ...

Hi! 59 days until Christmas 😊 Hope you are doing ok. What’s it like out there? I will forewarn you this episode isn’t necessarily weighty but does lead into some important life questions. Some of dad’s wisdom comes in at 4:36 to 4:45 including the word “die.” Our last topic goes in depth on the importance of Jesus being a servant (13:06 to 19:08) which includes a few scriptures, see below for those details. Topics start at ...

Thanks for tuning in this week! Wow, sometimes things DO get difficult. As we know, it will be ok and you are your own worst critic. Shoutout to one of my favorite countries and my friend (you know who you are) for teaching me this phrase I will never forget… “Ne jemi ndryshe” which is Albanian for “We are different.” Twice I mention the book of Genesis from the Bible, the second time I read a scripture from it. Topics start at 7:2...

Hey there 😊 I hope you are all staying ok, hang tight. HUGE thank you to all the countries so far (as far as data shows) for tuning in!! India, the United States, Nepal, Bangladesh, Norway, and the Philippines. I did some improv for the first time since March. I have converted back to putting liquid dairy creamer in my coffee due to it reducing the acidity (my dentist agreed with this theory.) I’m practicing what it means t...
