For the longest time I never understood why I preferred being inside and by myself. Mom’s recently told me as a little kid I preferred to play alone in my room or in the corner of our back yard. In retrospect, I remember saying to myself that my G.I. Joes and Transformers got a long … More Introvert vs. extrovert, the inner battle.
Yo, so its been a minute and I’ve been busy. Thank you readers for being patient and not going in on me for being so tardy with my posts. The last 4 months have been real and like most of you, 2017 was a shitty ass year for me. With that being said, its a … More New year… New me?
Recently I had a conversation with my best friend Chris who lives in Newark, NJ. Like most of our conversations Chris usually tells me where I am wrong in whatever situation I just currently happen to be a part of. In this most recent event I explained to him how I felt some type of … More Friend Rule Book?
Lately the topic of age and “acting your age” has come up in conversations between my friends and I. LA is a very ageist, “ageismed” society.

Do we get back out there or chill?
As an adult have you ever tried to stretch $20 to hold you through a whole week? Have you ever had to bow out of some plans with friends because you just can’t afford to kick it? You ever been on a date and you calculated how much money you were able to spend on … More Adult Money Struggles (AMS)
Funny story, so about 3 years ago, my homie and I were looking for a two bedroom apartment in LA. To be more specific, we wanted something above the 10, west of Koreatown and south of Hollywood, so basically Mid-City. MidCity at that time was the fastest growing area in all of LA.

Man, I took a long time thinking about this post. I really didn’t want to speak on it but I feel like this could be therapeutic as well as a tool for others who may be going through the same thing. So that I’m being transparent, I recently broke up with, let’s just call them … More Breaking up
We’re living in a digital age man, so much so that people don’t spit or kick any type of game anymore. Case in point, as kids we would write notes and ask girls, will you be my girlfriend, yes or no? As teens well into adulthood you would step to a girl (or guy) and … More Why do we go so hard in the DM’s…
