There Are No Rules

So much world, so little time. So much adulting, so little playing. It sounds cliché to say there are big changes coming. On a global level, in how we see this world and how we live in it, it seems as though it’s changing more quickly than can be digested. I am certain our personal lives are taking a bit of a shaking up, too. All for the better. There is no turning back. It is a fact, success is predicated on the pursuit; the damned determination. This doggedness sees an objective through despite external circumstances. Staying the course in a linear fashion has never been my strongest suit. Where some see my behavior as a fluttering about, I recognize … Read More

The Juggle is Real

I can gladly say I do not participate in the entrepreneur hustle any longer. Where there is often two sides to one coin in most debates, I am firmly in the reliable consistency camp. Not a day goes by in which I regret jumping ship from shakey waters to calm currents. Having said structure eliminates the freedom of creative time too. I say this as an observation. There is still an ephemeral part of myself, the multitaster of life’s buffet. A little bit of this, a little bit of that. Per my previous blog post on minimalism: I have already specifically chosen my various directions, interest, tiny projects, reading-writing goals, and family time pockets. My social life = the natural behavior … Read More

Long walks and long noodles. Long walks are good for the soul. 75% of noodle dishes are comfort food, so they are good for the soul too. Both were a part of my weekend. The walks have been an every Sunday thing. And they never involve a cell phone. I really love my cozy quaint neighborhood smack center in the high rise metropolis and cultural abundance of Dallas. If I spit out of my front door it’d hit a museum, bistro, tapas bar, or The Ritz. But I love my job more and will move again as soon as I can. I hate putting the miles on my car. And truthfully I don’t frequent any of the places in my neighborhood. … Read More

Perfume

It’s funny. I’m not a perfume wearer. An occasional spritz. Similar to my lipstick wearing, I’m non committal. Frankly, perfume gags me. Especially the sweet stuff. A man who wears a sweetish cologne vexes me. A man should only smell cloyingly sweet if he’s a baker. I would prefer no person wear any recreational scent, but this blog has already covered pheromones, so I won’t get into it again. Really, a man should smell like a man. I have no problem telling even my mother, ‘yuck, roll the window down’ if we’re riding in the car together. Or calling her ahead and saying ‘I have a headache, please don’t wear perfume’. She’s religious about her use. She’s the one to … Read More

Hi. Say it like it is, don’t beat around the bush. A longer read can be a deterrent within our clickbait culture. Haven’t you noticed the trend in adding [how many minutes this takes to read] under article titles or bylines of stories and journalism; as if everyone’s time is so fucking precious…give me a break. I’ve always seen it as a challenge. You don’t know me or how quickly I read. Aside from this, I’ve personally lost a lot of faith in journalism. It often comes across as deliberately destructive or sensational. Just as more money doesn’t determine class: better words don’t necessarily make a better point. Attention is not the same as focus. #BrockaQuote Often when a point … Read More
