Weekly Wednesday Wisdom: Take risks

As you all know without fail I offer Miloh a little nugget of wisdom that I have learned.

Todays wisdom for Miloh: Take Risks

That could be the most important thing I learned in college and I actually learned it in a class. Or I guess I should say a professor told the class to take risks.

It was in a great Religion and Physics class I took. Not to be confused with the Physics and Religion class I took the next quarter. This one was in the religion department, the other in the math department. Both fantastic but this was one of my standout classes.

The teacher was amazing.

The first day of class we watched Pinocchio because the story was about personal transformation. Which makes me remember that it was a Religion and Personal Transformation class not to be confused with Religion and Physics which should not be confused with Physics and Religion.

Anyway, the big takeaway from the class was to take risks.

I have my whole life pretty much. I kind of don't listen to folks when they say things can't be done... And I find a way to do those things. I've made career and life decisions that probably weren't the safest decisions but they have all paid off well.

Without risk life is boring. And the worst that can happen is you fail. But if yo never take a risk you fail anyway.

Plus I think failure is the best way to learn.

So do what you want. Follow your dream. Take risks and never look back.

And I leave you with another video by Frank Turner (the dude I mentioned in my last post) because again I find myself loving his words in this song Eulogy. First minute and 7 seconds but you can feel free to watch the next song too.

Another guest post

I did a little guest post a bit ago for mom-nom.com, the post is below the original pre-amble.

If you head to Mom-nom.com you can see a little guest post I wrote. It's about being a daddy blogger in the midst of a bunch of mommy bloggers.

The post is kicking off Tiffany's new site. It used to be called Feels Like Home but then some other blogger felt that she owned the name because she was thinking about to registering the name...even though really the name comes from a song. And I think it's pretty ridiculous that the other woman threatened a law suit because of this.

And that BS and some other twitter high school antics lead me to one of my greatest literary feats...a little rant on twitter.

The image is below, if you click on it you can read the whole thing...it goes from the bottom up. A little warning if you read it...there may be an f-bomb or 20...and now it's in the Library of Congress...awesome.




Here's the post from Mom-nom.comWhen Tiffany asked me to do a…

My hundredth post: seriously a clips post?

In my last post I mentioned I was working on getting some celebs for this post. I was in talks with the quarterback of the Saints whatever his name is...I'm sure I could look it up. I was also trying to get Conan...those talks were going really well but then NBC squashed it. There were more but the moral is it's just me.

So I thought I'd do a clips post to show my journey from dude who was scared of kids to dad. If you're new to my blog this will be a CliffsNotes version of what you missed. If you've been checking it out for awhile think of this as a best of. And since a blog can't work like a TV show if you want to get the full clip show experience you'll have to click through to the posts...but this will give you the gist.

In the beginning...Staci and I wanted to have a child but we both had totally different experience with kids. Kids have always been magically attracted to her...which is probably why she is so great at her career as a Montessori teacher…

Update post

An unexpected side affect of writing this blog is that I was introduced to the world of baby blogs. Totally didn't expect it, but since most of my readers are pregnant women or moms it makes sense.

There is some great stuff out there. One of the blogs I'm digging is the818.com by Morgan. Great, real look at pregnancy with some cool design stuff too.

She does a weekly update on what's going on with her and her pregnancy. All those questions that folks would ask.

But since men aren't the ones doing the hard work no one asks us what's up with us.

I thought it would be fun to answer her update questions from a male point of view. So here goes:


How far along? Officially 22 weeks and 4 days, but since I know a little more about math and the female body than every doctor I know that it's really closer to 20.

Total weight gain/loss: Down 3 pounds...sorry.

Stretch marks? I always had these little ones on my ankles...I think they are from when I grew to a enormous 5'6&q…
