“If I can’t change the people around me, I change the people around me.” – Chuck D. It’s funny that this theme keeps reoccurring in my life and, therefore, in my blog over and over again. Environment. Not the one we live in but the one we live in (I promise not to do this … More People
Lately, I’ve been doing a lot of cooking. As someone who “minimized” most of my kitchen gadgets because I didn’t quite know what they all did, it’s been interesting. I’ve been “making due” with some things but it’s been a wild ride and I’m excited for it to continue. First of all, you may not … More Kitchen Adventures
“You’re spread too thin to be useful.” Harsh, I know. But I, once, said that to someone because it was true and I felt they would benefit from hearing it. Was I right? I’ll probably never know. Now, I feel those words echoing back at me. Spinning plates or endless phone notifications. Whatever visual creates … More Chasing
Life has been busy (read: non-prioritized) so I apologize for my absence. I’ve had a lot of things asking for my attention and I said “yes” to one too many.

The introspective answer could be that I thought I was broken and I wasn’t really. Then, I could respond with pessimism and say that I totally still am … More Jerking it to Self-Help books… motivational Youtube videos… or blog posts… etc.

Another person who I watch regularly and read their books repeated these words over and over again to himself while coming up (You’re the man, Gary). “Do more.” It’s a simple statement but it requires discipline to execute on every … More Do More.
“Life sucks and then you die,” I overheard her say while sipping my coffee, watching my laundry spin in the dryer and listening to Tim Ferriss talk with Marie Kondo about the Japanese Art of Tidying Up. Life sucks and then you die. This statement gave me pause, I had to look and see at … More The stories we tell ourselves
No. We’re not going to turn into airplanes ala Starscream of the Decepticons. That would be too fucking cool and/or hurt a lot. Instead, we are going to explore a feature that you might only use on your phone every once in a while. Or, if you don’t care about airline safety regulations, baby death … More The Power of Airplane Mode
