My Favorite Blogs: Before and After

Obviously before I started a blog, i read blogs and then decide I wanted to write my own. However, since starting Stuck With Me Now, I really started reading blogs, many, many blogs. Now, i have more than two that i keep up with pretty well. So here are my favorite blogs in all niches. Be sure to check them out!       Before Stuck With Me Now I did mention that i read blogs before i started blogging. I’m a lazy person and because of that i found…

Why does Stuck With Me Now Have Wise Words?

Wise Words is a page here at Stuck With Me Now. It’s been a few month since the page was added  to the site and I thought it was time to explain to you guys why I included it.   What is Wise Words?   First and foremost, it’s a page with quotes. It is a place where I share with my readers my favorite quotes. Each month has a different them; for example, this month’s theme is ‘Quotes from Books,’ last month it was ‘Motivational Quotes.” You get the…

June Wrap-up and July Goals

Hey Guys!! June has been super fun for us over here at Stuck With Me Now! June was our very first month with the blog- that puts us at 18 days. Starting this blog was really exciting, and it gave Donovan and I another reason to hang out (even more than we did before). So really, it was a win-win situation. Since launching the blog on June 12th we have had over 1,700 page views!! This is something we are really proud of and could not have achieved without the support…

Stuck With Me Now on YouTube!

Instead of writing a social issues article today, I spent a little while making this video for our brand new YouTube Channel. It’s pretty basic, but I feel like it gives the people who follow us on social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) but haven’t seen the website a look at what we have to offer. I did my best to make it look professional, but that was a difficult task for a computer I’ve had since fifth grade. No disrespect to Mr. Toshi (that’s what I named my computer when…

Changing Lives: Women’s Illiteracy

Hey guys, I know social issues are usually Donovan’s domain and Thursday is my Changing Lives day, but let me assure you that this post on women’s illiteracy is in the right place. Over the next few weeks I am going to be posting about service projects, charities, and fundraisers that all support ending illiteracy for women. Before I start sharing those, I thought that I would open your eyes to this problem we will soon start solving. Most of us in the U.S., especially those who are reading this…

Why I Have a Semicolon Tattooed on My Wrist

Going to school the day after getting my tattoo was interesting to say the least. Everyone wanted to ask one of three questions: 1) Is it real?, 2) Can I touch it?, and 3) What is it?. The first two questions were easy enough to answer. Yes, it is real and permanent, and it is still on my wrist as I’m typing this. It is also safe to touch at this point, but even I wasn’t allowed to touch it during the first two weeks. A tattoo is an open…

Stuck With Me: Making Happy Happen

  Since freshmen year, I have been a member of my school’s Key Club. For those of you who are unaware of what Key Club is (many are), here is a brief overview: Key Club is the largest and oldest service club in the nation, and from that club came the Kiwanis family. Under the Kiwanis family umbrella, people of all ages participate in Builders Clubs, K-Kids, CKI, Aktion Clubs, Key Clubs, or Kiwanis Clubs to provide service to others. Started in 1925 in Sacramento, California, Key Club is now…

Stuck With Me: Saving A Life that Didn’t Want to be Saved

I was going to die, that much was clear. That didn’t bother me though, I wanted to die. I wanted it more than anything. I was going to do it too; I was going to kill myself, I was going to drive my car into a tree – until someone stopped me. That someone was Leanne, my girlfriend and co-creator of Stuck With Me Now, and she is the reason I’m alive to write this today. Why did I want to kill myself? The answer is simple, yet hopelessly complex:…
