Any conflicts have been put to one side. Eri continues to be an amazing Mum and parenting partner. As my schedule sees me away most of the time.

Froggie is a week old. And without wishing to tempt fate, it's been a smooth transition and Eri's been an amazing Mum :)

A lot of the same sentiments coming up, but as I finish the somewhat nebulous Brave New World, I am closer than ever to living my own.

With around three weeks 'til Froggie thoughts are inspired by Mark Manson's blog, and I have an interesting conversation with the young father driving my Lyft.

Plenty of thoughts, many inspired by the book I've been reading on happiness, this week. A sense of hope, but a sense of conflict too. Such has been my life perhaps for six months now.

New Year. New McGuinness. Nah, not in the slightest. Back for more of the same. Plus the second part of my interview with my wrestling trainer and friend talking about jealousy and love.

It's New Years Eve. I take a little break from the over-thinking of things and perambulating over my feelings, and instead add in the first part of an interview I did earlier this month with my wrestling trainer and friend as we talk about his viewpoints on love, dating and marriage culled from his 70-plus years on this earth.

And PLEASE, someone email me some questions or comments to myunconventionallife2016@gmail.com so I can add to the show and not drone on about my mental nonsense so much. Thankssss.
