Discomfort That I Would Mistake For Lust

A post shared by Greg Joachim (@jimmygoodwords) on

Spent a day in Berry over the weekend, which is always a nice break from the pace of the city. The Girl and I always end up discussing what our lives would look like if we lived there. It’s a speed of life that, given my Appalachian upbringing, I could fall into rather easily (like a sofa molded to my body by years of use) but the city has seduced me. I would forever hear her siren song in the distance, creating in me a discomfort that I would mistake for lust. No, I dare not leave her; dare not generate a longing that only an admission of requital would subdue.

A Try For The Good Guys

Last night my Roosters handled the in-form Panthers with relative ease. I fell in love with League instantly upon arriving in Australia in 2009 and I’ve been a Roosters member ever since. That’s Blake Ferguson scoring a try for the good guys, and the kids in the front row are loving it. Go the Roosters! 🐔

Two Major Jumps

This is one of the first images I captured with my brand new Sony A7ii. I’m loving everything about it so far, but I made two major jumps at once (from APS-C to full frame and from DSLR to mirrorless) and it will definitely take some getting used to.

My Helmet Is Down

The next six or so weeks will be mega. Much like this fella, I’ll have my head down and focused on my work. The thing about a PhD is the same thing with any big project: you have to focus on one task at a time or you’ll easily overwhelm yourself. My helmet is down; my torch ignited.
