Seth Stivala Rise superhero fly leap jump bestseller

Bent on a Bestseller! At the time of writing this, I have 226 days to write a bestseller. The timeframe being before I turn 30 years old. So what’s the hurry? Well, as we all know turning 30 is a turning point in our lives. Some people freak out. Others reflect on all they’ve learned. However, most try to do something extraordinary either before or on the day they turn 30. I intend to do both (I will announce something on my 30th that I will be doing in 2018). This article is my before hand. The reason I’ve chosen this is that I’ve alwaysRead More →

State: Florida So yesterday Jim picked me up and we did some catching up on the ride to his apartment. A long time ago Jim went to our church back home in Maryland and is a friend of the family. Jim moved down to Tampa to do some church planting because he felt God calling him there. He is currently a young adults director at the Radiant Church in Tampa. Jim told me how the church operates and how it’s been growing and honestly, I think all churches should do this. They have groups of all different activities. They started off with a few groupsRead More →

State: Florida Today I woke up early well rested next to my cuddle buddy Mia (Jim and Leanna’s cat). I took advantage of the thing I often dream about (a hot shower), while I had the opportunity and then repacked my backpack. It was a bit heavier from all the kindness (food) Jim and Leanna put into it. I went to Jim and Leanna’s church (Radiant Church), today. Jim had to get there early being the young adults director. Leanna drove me and monster to the church and I forgot that they had mentioned that it was in a movie theater. It was awesome! First,Read More →

State: Florida I woke up early and felt pretty good because I slept moderately well. I packed up my stuff and headed across the street to the Three Sisters Springs tourism center. I bought a ticket for the trolley ($15) and then got on it. The trolley and access to the Three Sisters Springs is run by the city. There is no public parking at the springs, although you can just walk in for $12.50. But for $2.50 more, I took the trolley because I knew it had two more stops further north. While we drove the driver informed us “They haven’t seen any manatees forRead More →

State: Maine Date: 05/05/16 We woke up when the sunlight hit us in the car. I didn’t sleep well (during the night it got down to 34 degrees and the weather app said it felt like 25). I agree with the weather app despite being in a car with three layers on. Harley was smart and grabbed his sleeping bag and slept great. Sunrise was at 5:15am, which was a lot earlier than either of us were used to. Yet we got up and walked into the Camden state park from the parking lot we slept in. We headed up the road and found a trailRead More →

State: Florida I got up and went with Tami to work at Cedar Lakes Woods and Gardens. For those of you that don’t know, after I volunteered for a few days at Cedar Lakes, Tami asked: “Hey do you want like a week worth of work? We just had somebody quit.” Being as that I am always looking for work along the way and have finite funds, I immediately agreed. The work has consisted of digging ditches for new electrical pipe, weeding thud apples (nasty plant with lots of stickers), carrying brush to the burn pit, tilling soil in the field, and today we pickedRead More →

State: Florida I woke up tired. If you could call it waking up. I didn’t sleep, so much as toss and turn all night. Why? The mosquito symphony wherever I lay my head. Not bitten due to the mosquito netting on my hammock, but the sound they make right next to your ears. “My fault for sleeping near water,” I thought. I got up and broke camp then started back down 44 and set out in search of some Manatees to swim with or perhaps an Alligator to catch. I honestly wasn’t in the best mood due to the lack of sleep. Combine that withRead More →

State: Florida I didn’t sleep well in the Devil’s Den Campground because I’m not used to having people around me when I camp anymore. I got up to break camp and then Tami came by and brought me breakfast. I thanked her and told her I’d probably stop up and see her. She then had to run to get to work at the Cedar Lakes Woods and Gardens. I didn’t really have a plan for what to do other than to wait around until 4:30pm because Carlie (works at Devil’s Den) had offered me a ride to Gainesville. After I got my shower, I hadRead More →

State: Florida I got up after sleeping pretty well in my fence/tree bedroom. I changed my clothes after wearing the previous for three days and then did my morning routine of stretching and reading my Bible. Then I packed up and headed out. I came across Hammock State park, which was a pretty nice place that I was originally going to stay at last night and set up my hammock because I thought it would’ve been funny, but was too tired to make it any further. After refilling my water at the water fountain, I continued on my way. As I neared a driving range,Read More →

State: Florida We headed over to Paul’s friend Jody’s place. He lives in downtown Miami in a highrise on the 39th floor. He owns an IT company and lives with his girlfriend Carla, who is a chef consultant. Both were welcoming and very nice. The reason we went over there is because Jody was part of our python team (Python Posse) and because we wanted to be near Homestead on the edge of the Everglades. Our researched showed that the Homestead area had the most sightings recorded of Burmese Pythons. That night we went out to eat in downtown Miami at a Mexican restaurant. WhileRead More →
