I See Skin Color And You Can Too!

This is an open letter to a small minority of folks who say “I don’t see color.” or why can’t we just say “We’re all humans.” or some other phrase that they emit with open arms that sounds all shiny and rainbow-y on the surface, but deep down, it’s just…so wrong. While it may seem a…

Do The Thing That Scares You

I have been on autopilot for the past couple days, feeling as though I am having an out of body experience as I watch myself go through the motions of normal, everyday life while allowing all the information that was hurled at me the previous few days to slowly leak its way into the processing…

How To Keep Going When Our Country Is In A Political Shitstorm

So yeah… it’s been four years now, right? It’s 2021? We’re all good? We got over our dumb moment? A moment that will live forever in the history books but did not doom us. Because we squashed that shit early in the beginning and didn’t suffer too dire of long-term consequences. Right? What? It’s still…

We Are All Different. We Are All The Same.

“Go back to where you came from.” Such a vile statement. Such a statement that I thought would maybe be phased out of our dialogue. Such a statement that has sadly made a resurgence lately. Let me first say my intention is not to pit whites against minorities here. If you have never had this…

5 Reasons For Americans To Travel Their Own Country

While some people envy those hopping around Europe, touring Asia, or soaking up the sun on the exoxotice beaches of Bali, I sort of envy the complete opposite vibe of all that. Granted, I want to visit more outside the United States in the future, and a luxurious Mediterranean cruise sounds lovely once in a while.…

Happy 2016, everyone! I sincerely hope everyone had a great holiday season and are ready to take on the new year! I used to make resolutions every damn year, and I have to admit I still make goals of some sort even though I know I am probably setting myself up for something other than…

Doing Life

Stagnation. Despair. Hope. Those are the three words that essentially describe how I had been feeling. And yes, that’s a contradictory mess that made up my headspace. It was very much a yo-yo spectrum of emotions cycling through me. The causes were wide and varied, and I will not go into much detail about that.…

Be The Captain Of Your Cheerleading Squad

Lately, things have been… well, stalled really. It’s like my little bubble of the world decided to slow way the fuck down while the rest of the world keeps chuggin’ right the fuck along. And, fuck.. I don’t even know. That’s how I feel about it and every other fucking thing. I feel like an…

On Unnecessary Life Competition

Let’s be honest here. I have no qualms in admitting my utter hatred of the human species. Wow. I’m not a regular coffee drinker so when I do drink it, it’s like alcohol in that it makes me relentlessly spew the truth without any hesitation at all. But of course, I obviously kid about hating people.…
