Intro

Hello all,Just thought I'd take some time to introduce myself! The name is Josh (obviously). I'm almost 6 weeks into my first attempt at growing my beard out. It's pretty awesome, a friggin' difficult sometimes. Being only 23, I'm pretty happy with my beard growth as of yet. I expect by the time I'm in my 30's, I'll have a pretty burly beard to sport at my leisure.Anyways, I'll be posting some pics of my hair here soon. Might as well right?Thanks everyone!See More

Favorite Lift!

This is probably my favorite group on AoM, just because of its premise. I love it.So we've all got a favorite lift. There are so many out there, but really there's always one that really gets your juices flowing and ignites the flame of ambition.So what's your favorite lift? Why is it your favorite lift? And just for fun, what's the most weight you've ever pulled, pushed, moved, or what have you?I'll start with mine: the deadlift. In my opinion, it's THE lift for anyone looking to build mass of…See More

The Truth & The Path

Posted on July 28, 2014 at 11:25am 0 Comments

The truth is, I've never really understood my place in this life.

I learnt early on of the bitter pains of jealousy, contempt, and hopelessness. I developed the ability to manipulate those around me through those emotions with their natural offspring: lies. I could convey a truth where there was none to be found, and develop a means to an end which I believed to be the only real truth. The only real truth being, in my mind, that I was alone in my dreams and passions. My…

Philosophy

“The only thing I truly know is that I know nothing.”

 

- Socrates

 

Every year I get older and older, life continues to move forward and every year as I grow older, I sit and think about what “it” is exactly. It seems I’ve perpetually philosophized on the futility of contemplating certain aspects of life as I perceive it, or perhaps as others do. Since I was very young (haha, now that's a relative thing...) I’ve been this way. And as I’ve fluctuated through times…
