Brent Stephen Smith wants to be a writer when he grows up. In the meantime, he’s keeping busy trying to find all the ways to procrastinate.

Some diversions, excursions, and aversions:

  • Coming up with ideas for books is easy, following through is tough, success is whatever you want it to be
  • There is something to be said about the inconvenient
  • Consulting sounds made up, but I’d totally do it
  • I bring two attributes on a soccer pitch: getting in the way and running around with a lot of energy
  • Aston Villa is not for the weak
  • I like following the NHL in general, the Vancouver Canucks specifically, and brainstorming about them both endlessly
  • Rugby is the perfect combination of physical exertion, mental application, and creative expression – and that’s just coaching
  • Different thoughts have different purposes – it’s not a stupid thought until you try to apply it in the wrong place
  • So Schmeckt Berlin, but nothing good can happen in Hamburg
  • David Bowie is the best
  • Apple pie is the worst
  • Indiana Jones was right about snakes

This site is a place for all the loose thoughts that haven’t been able to find another home.
