About Me

My name is Daniel Johnson. I sometimes write under the pseudonym “The Ghost in the Machine”. I see myself as an introvert mostly. I love to think about things in new ways and explore both new and old ideas. Nothing is off the table for me. I can talk about pretty much anything, which is why I named the site “Everything Then Some”.  I like to think that I have a unique way of looking at things. I am able to break things down in a simple and easy to understand way. I understand that not everyone will agree with me. This is as it should be — if everyone was the same or thought the same, this would be a boring and predictable world indeed.

For anyone that doesn’t know me, I have to warn you– I am a bit outspoken on certain topics. I always try to respect other people’s right to have their own opinions, and I know that many people will not agree with me. Like all people that have strong opinions, I sometimes feel the need to voice them. This site gives me a place to do just that, give my opinions. As I see it, opinions are really a person’s personal truths.

Every post will have something to do with how I see the world as it is, or as it could be. I will, from time to time, post things that inspire me. I see a lot of travesty and hypocrisy in the world. There is a lot of hate and judgement. I also, however, see a lot of good, love, and sacrifice in the world as well.

I aim to expose hypocrisy, lies, and hate. I hope to share and spread love and kindness, so as to inspire others to do the same.  Anyone who makes comments on my page will be free to say pretty much anything. All I ask is that people refrain from using hateful or judgmental phrases or language, because I’m not really about that. We, as a species,  need to realize that it is our connections to others that give us the opportunity to be great!

Will you let another day go by spreading hate (or ignoring it)? Will you stand by as people around you judge others? Will you make a difference in the lives of those around you?

I hope that people will leave suggestions about what they would like me to talk about. Until then, I will just keep talking about things that matter to me. Please leave questions or comments in the comments sections or visit the contact us page. Thank you for your valuable time! It means the world to me that you shared it with me.

I am married, have two kids, am going to college for Information Technology, and I have many interests. I like to swim, read, watch movies, play video games, listen to music, and talk about things with other people that have open minds. My music tastes are all over the place. I like pretty much anything with a great sound and particularly like songs with meaning. Although I think social media can be a good thing, I also encourage people to get out and do things with real people.

I am 41 years old, was born in San Diego California, lived much of my life in Texas, and currently reside in Virginia.
