My Take on Things

I Am Pissed

Bloomington, MN, where I work and my soon-to-be-wife works as a teacher, adopted a hybrid method of learning for the upcoming school year. This is the e-mail I sent to the members of the school board: “Hello, my name is Nevan Hard. I work in Bloomington, very close to Jefferson High and Olson Middle, and […]

European Adventure 2019, Leg 4: Ireland, Part 2 + Retrospective

Leg 4, Day 5: Dublin, Part 1June 26th, 2019 The previous night after we returned from the Cliffs of Kerry, we ate with a hostelmate from the US named Kelly. We told her about our trip and that we were now engaged. She told us why she was travelling, explaining that her trip was much […]

Skywalker Saga Hot Take

I wrote the following word vomit a couple of weeks ago in the middle of the night when my head was swimming with inspiration. While I still stand by all of my major points, please do not judge me too harshly on the method or manner of my writing. Okay nerds, cryptids, cupcakes and communists, […]

European Adventure 2019, Leg 4: Ireland, Part 1

Leg 4, Day 1: CorkJune 22nd, 2019 I know I have said on many other days in these writings that we needed to be up early, but no other day except this one did we need to be up as early as 5 a.m. With that in mind, it really did not help when the […]

Death

As long as I can remember, I have always been terrified of death. In my youth, this made perfect sense. The church I grew up in was somehow simultaneously clear yet vague on its soteriology, and held a very traditional view on the concept of hell, its nature, who goes there and for how long. […]

European Adventure 2019, Leg 3: Scotland

Leg 3, Day 1: EdinburghJune 19th, 2019 It was another early rise for us that day. Today would not carry the same relaxed, stress-free character that a few of the previous days had. After we scrounged together a breakfast, Alix drove us to the Coventry train station, and we said our goodbyes. I’ve always enjoyed […]

George Floyd, COVID, and other updates

I cannot believe it has been over three weeks since I made a post! This is going to be much more of a freeform entry, you know, a bloggy sort of blog post.  First off, the main reason it has been so long is because of the major protests occurring in my home state of […]

European Adventure 2019, Leg 2: England

Leg 2, Day 1: Intro to EnglandJune 16th, 2019 For what already seemed like the 20th time on this trip, early the next morning Danielle and I were on a bus. We opted to not take a taxi to the bus stop. The station was on the far outskirts of the downtown area and our […]

Confusion with Political and Religious Discussion Aversion

Growing up, religion and politics were ubiquitous topics in our household. We went to church two times a week, and were almost always involved in at least one weekly Bible study or church member hangout. My church was considered a missions church, and they would spend thousands of dollars a year sending families and individuals […]

European Adventure 2019, Leg 1: Preparation + Iceland

Travel and adventures are a strong facet of Danielle and I’s relationship. For our first big trip only months after meeting, we drove through South Dakota and Wyoming to spend a few nights in a B&B 10,000 feet high in the Colorado mountains. The following year we went on a couple camping excursions to Northern […]

100 Things About Me

Which of your parents are you more like? In looks, my father. In personality, most likely a mix of the two, but I have not given it a lot of thought. How many siblings do you have? One older brother, two adopted younger sisters. They are only 11 months apart in age, but come from […]

Aggravation

You know whats really annoying sometimes? Waking up in the middle of the night because your cat is scratching at the door. But then you remember…you don’t even have a cat. It must be someone in your house, you start to get up to check on your baby, but you do not have a baby. […]

Infinity Saga Full Review

A few months ago, I rewatched the majority of the films in the first three phases of the Marvel Cinematic universe, collectively referred to as The Infinity Saga, in the name of review and comparison. I did not do this out of some illusion that they are the greatest movies ever made, but it is […]
