When was the last time you heard the words, “I’m proud of you?” If you’re like me, you’ve heard plenty of “Nice job”, “Good one”, and “That’s cool!” Though those are great encouragements to hear, they don’t carry the same weight as someone saying “I’m proud of you.” When someone takes the time to say […]
About Michael Nunez
This author has yet to write their bio.
Meanwhile lets just say that we are proud Michael Nunez contributed a whooping 34 entries.
Sometimes, I’m amazed at where persistence leads some individuals. It’s absurd that we think that people just happen upon certain destinations or places in life. As if they lucked their way into where they are. We are more likely to believe in random good fortune bringing them there, rather than persistence and hard work paying […]
Chess is one of the greatest games in existence. It’s so popular, there are movies about it, books teaching how to play, and strategies for life created from it. Chess also brings people together. Or at least, that’s what Jay used to meet new people. Traveling around is a lot of fun. Its great to […]
I am not going to make you wait until the end to know what the phrase is. My phrase of the year is “search for the opportunity.” Allow me to explain. I studied business at Azusa Pacific University. Four years of (mostly) overpriced classes as I soaked in as much information as I possibly could! […]
While attending a church in Auckland, New Zealand, I met John Nash. John is a solid legend. He is young, works under the son, is married and has a handsome new baby boy. Oh, and for fun, he studies philosophy and theology. For these reasons and more. John quickly became one of my favorite people […]
For those of you who followed my blog at the beginning of the year I announced my phrase of the year, which is linked below. Because, obviously all of you remember it, let’s say it together, with charisma: SHOW ME SOME (FLUFFY) PASSION! It was quite a good one if you ask me. As this […]
Upon my arrival in New Zealand I knew I needed to meet people in order to thrive. When you’re in a new country your comfort level is directly related to the amount of friends you make. You experience an adjustment period with any move. Finding people willing to walk with you during that time makes […]
It’s December 1st as I start to write this. I’m in Sacramento, California and just a few short months ago, I did not expect to be here. Coincidentally, I mentioned to my sister in January that it would be very cool to be with the family this year for the Christmas holiday. You see, because […]
One compliment I often receive is that my voice could be on a podcast. Some people even go further and say even my face was made for radio! I taught English as a second language for a year and lived with a variety of citizens from other countries. If there’s one thing I’ve gained from […]
Currently, I’m sitting at Sacramento International Airport. Having just landed from my just about 25 hour trip from Auckland to Sydney to San Francisco to Sacramento, I’m reflecting on my time in New Zealand. When I first landed in New Zealand I wrote about my first impressions of living in the country. Two months in, […]
Currently, I’m living in Sacramento, California. Stay in touch and see what I’m up to and where life takes me next.
I like to say “Mizpah” to my friends and family before I leave. It came from Genesis 31:49, where they used the word mizpah to say “May the Lord protect you while you are away.”
I’m away quite a bit, so its nice to wish protection for people as I am away.
