First thing’s first: Hi

Been almost three weeks since I last had a blog. It’s tough to keep up with the stupid stories of the world, my personal happenings, and hot takes when I get paid to create and push other content.

So we have a decision to make: either continue this as the GMIM, or simply write smaller blogs whenever I find something interesting. Personally, I like the once a week blog. Gives my 5 or 6 readers something to look forward to when the week starts. Plus, I like the irony in having a blog named after Mondays and how hard it is to get motivated, and yet the blog gets published a day or two after.

So I guess I don’t have a decision? Just be better I suppose and get this shit published sooner. Anywho, back to business… Continue reading

Monday Mourning Metaphor

When you do something really nice, but get screwed in the end:

You have to feel bad for J.J. at this point, right? Yeah, he’s gotten some slack from the haterzz for being a try-hard and goodie two shoes, but I just want to see great players like Watt, Rob Gronkowski, and others have long careers and full seasons. Especially when there are so many low skilled players and poorly coached teams in the NFL, we need players like this to provide us some awesome highlights to enjoy. Let’s hope it’s a speedy recovery.

Monday Mourning Gripe: Are cheese sticks the most vile snack in human history?

I’ve been thinking this one for a while, but it came back to mind after witnessing a girl eating one of these things on the subway. Snacks in general can be weird since they’re processed and made to last much longer than they should. But something about cheese sticks makes me want to vomit. Continue reading

Alrighty, folks. Little housekeeping here for GMIM. Usually I find a couple of stories, react, and give a personal story as well. I’ve received positive feedback for far with what I’ve written, but mainstream weekly blogs or articles typically follow some sort of structure. So from here on out, you’ll notice a little change in GMIM with various sections/topics, some that’ll reoccur every seven days. So let’s just into it!

Clocking In

Weather: Partly cloudy, 69 degrees (nice); moon obstruction during the afternoon
Traffic: Light; the calm before the storm, aka school traffic
Did Zach get to work on time: Sure
Breakfast: Maple brown sugar oatmeal, hot coffee with two Sweet-N-Low, ice water

Monday morning metaphor: Aaron Judge has struck-out in 37 straight games

Monday morning gripe: The war on Millennials and technology
