The Progression Of…

See What Had Happened Was…

I was not supposed to be gone so long. I was supposed to revamp this website along with my travel blog but it got too complicated in my head so I just let both fall by the way side. So. What’s been up? I traveled a lot. I started a business. I started writing creatively again. I […]

Goodbye Painful 20s.

Pretty soon I will no longer be a member of my twenties and I will no longer have the excuse of figuring it out before thirty. It’d be nice to do that within the next twelve days but I’m not rushing towards nirvana. Though it’d be nice for some things to fall into place for […]

Do I Need A Ho Phase?

You ever want something? Not want it? And then want it again? Here’s my dilemma. I operate on a myriad of what ifs. I try to calm these questions down often because they do nothing for the progression of my life but when it comes to sex we (me, myself and i) skrrt skrrt like […]

Getting Out of My Own Way

I’ve been recently applying for better positions and each time I feel like I’ve been overlooked. I am consistently one of the hardest workers in the building. It’s not my opinion but everyone at my job tells me how much I deserve to be promoted but when it comes down to it there’s no reward. […]

Is That You God?

My last night in Los Angeles I was standing on the corner of N Orange St. outside the CVS near the Chinese Theaters. I had just came from a night of watching movies at the AFI Fest and was waiting for my Uber to pull up. I was still tipsy from the two hurricanes I […]
