Thoughts On Others’ Thoughts

I know I’ve mentioned this before: I am not a big fan of short stories. Never have been. I don’t spend any time on Medium and I have no desire to. This personal proclivity baffles me, because it seems like I would love them the most, as a supposedly anxious impatient person. Tell me, get to the point! Maybe this belief about myself isn’t 100% true. And it also baffles me because I’ve never been able to really articulate why. Only recently have I come to understand that it is more of a time suck to get invested in something which has no longterm benefit; maybe it’s the matured investing entrepreneur in me or just a vulnerable child who doesn’t … Read More

The Internet, The Options

The interwebs is a strange and interesting and kind of succubus of a place (from my perspective) but it is also expansive and phenomenal. It is really the infinite, the new solar system, the modern ‘what we can’t get our minds around’ literally. This is also how much it has to offer you. Reflect. You can utilize it to watch most anything from anywhere in the world or you can waste lots of time clicking on sensationalism. You can take free courses from Harvard or MIT, listen to intelligent debate via TED talks or casually view what someone from some other place, who doesn’t now you or care about you! wore to an awards show. How are you spending your … Read More

I’m having a moment. I need to get something off my chest. Yes, I may be taking something personally, but this is my blog and I can do that. And seeing as though I haven’t posted in almost a month, I might as well with enthusiasm. Just a little background: I put out an EP (6 songs) vs an LP (full album) almost a year ago. The same month I did so, I thought to myself “I will not be a starving artist.” and essentially got a full-time (at the time) job, almost the same week. I am not making excuses when i say that I didn’t have the time to hustle the music. I am being honest when I … Read More

This Little Light of Mine

…let it shine, let it shine. Made it to the end of the week. I had insomnia every.single.night. this past week! I do not recommend it; it kinda makes you hate things, and people, and light. I woke this morning and promised myself if I made it through my entire to-do list, I would treat myself to a glass of champagne. I write this post from the other side of halfway through the second. Throw a girl a bone. I am always honest. There are a lot of things i dislike in my mind, but on the other side of having accomplished them, I’m excited. I try to remind myself of this when I start over-thinking. Like writing this blogpost, … Read More

Time Is on Your Side

We made it. Passed the holidays, all our pieces are still in tact. The new year, the perception of a fresh start, as it actually just slides into another… Time is speeding up. Have you noticed? No, it really is. But here’s the best part, the time between what you want and when you will get it is also shorter now, so there’s that. You must act on it, no waiting around. And I have been spending time and waiting. Since Sunday, I believe my body has been physically glued to my bed with illness: no reading, no Netflix, no nothin! There have been moments of mental conception and new creation inside of this fatigue, and my own path has … Read More
