About Me: Adam J. Cheshier

Hi, I’m Adam.

I’ve been on the move for . . . a while.

When I was 20, I remember reading a story about a guy who quit his job, got rid of his stuff, packed two saddlebags of necessities, and took off on his bicycle to the other side of the planet.

He rode from Oregon to Patagonia — almost 7,000 miles — all on his own. It…

How to unleash the inspiration you need to create.

In Greek mythology, artists, thinkers, and other creative professionals had “mosis” to guide and inspire them. Mosis, the etymological term behind Muse, refers to wish and desire.

For amateurs of Classics, Homer mentions the Muses at the beginning of his iconic Iliad and Odyssey, asking them to help him with the story. The Greek Mythology recalls no less than nine Muses that inspire artists.

They are versed in music, comedy, tragedy, poetry, dance, hymns, astronomic, and rhetoric, along with subjects that would not typically be associated with arts such as grammar, geometry, agriculture, justice, wedding, and history.

American football has long been considered one of the most popular sports in the United States. This is largely because people love the physical side of the game. If you are considering playing American football there are several pieces of equipment you will need to purchase.

Luckily, there are a lot of American football stores online and thus getting your hands on what you need should not prove to be too difficult. Companies like Cisco Athletic have custom football shirts and everything else you need!

Nonetheless, don’t simply purchase the first items you lay your eyes on. You need to…

We have all dreamed of that cross-country RV road trip.

Or if you’re like me, you have dreamed of one day purchasing a VW Vanagon.

That’s not what this post is about, though. Check back in five years when I have more money and freedom.

Since I don’t have the money to travel via a fancy van or recreational vehicle, I’ll have to make do with an alternative. This one is about traveling and living in your car. A normal, four-door sedan. Nothing fancy about it.

That is what I did for approximately 62 days in the summer of 2015…

How many of these have you tried?

For animal lovers, it is pretty much the dream to either have a hobby that allows you to work with animals or a career in it. For this article, we are just going to talk about hobbies. Hobbies are the thing you do for fun that doesn’t always bring money but do bring a sense of happiness and joy to you.

Not every hobby that includes animals will suit everyone, but if you love animals, you will probably find a way to make it work anyway.

If you want to be the best parent that you can be, you need to ensure you’re providing your child with everything they need to thrive. Your child needs more than amazing toys and a roof over their head to grow into well-rounded adults that can handle their emotional highs and lows.

Read on to make sure you’re providing your child everything they need to thrive:

Praise — done properly.

Praise is essential for any child, but it needs to be done the right way. Yes, there’s a right way to do praise, and there’s a way that it can stunt them in the…

Causes and symptoms of this very common eye disorder.

Astigmatism is a common structural eye disorder, which can affect both adults and children. In fact, it impacts millions of people around the world of various ages. Astigmatism occurs when the cornea changes shape, from a natural spherical shape to something that resembles more of a rugby ball.

This results in the light that enters the eye not being correctly focused on the retina, which can cause problems with short and long sight.

What causes astigmatism?

What causes astigmatism is generally unknown, although it tends to occur due to an irregular-shaped lens or cornea. Genetics plays a vital role, as the condition tends…

Here’s how you can do it, too.

Do you want to travel the world but not sure how you can afford it?

I was thinking the same thing. Then, I started learning (almost studying) ways to travel hack.

There are a lot of ways to save money while you travel. Most common are staying in hostels instead of hotels. Or, even better, Couchsurfing instead of staying in hostels.

Those are both great accommodation options, but neither are reliable long-term options. You’ll get tired of dorm rooms and struggle to find Couchsurfing hosts every night. Plus, you still have to afford pricey food.

That’s when I found a…

The most powerful cheat code in existence.

Every year we read about how legions of people have decided to abstain from meat, fish, eggs, and dairy products in a phenomenon that’s become known as Veganuary.

As consumers become more and more aware of the ethical, environmental, and sustainability issues caused by animal agriculture, they’re voting with their wallets and turning to a diet that either eschews animal products altogether or at least cuts them down significantly.

Moreover, while there’s fierce debate on the subject, many animal-loving veggiephiles believe that a vegan diet is conducive to better health and a longer life, on top of all the ethical…

Are you chasing a dream without knowing what you want?

About ten years ago, my Grandad shared this folktale with me. It taught me one of my most valued lessons. Maybe you’ve heard it. . .

One afternoon, a Nicaraguan fisherman and his two young sons were boating back to shore after a full morning at sea.

The morning’s catch had filled half the rickety fishing boat’s real estate. All in a good morning’s work.

On the other side of the bay, a shiny white yacht was motoring in from open waters. The boat seemed to be half the length of a football field.

The youngest boy awed. “Father, look…
