“Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind.” -... Continue Reading →
Hey guys. How's it been hanging? It's been one of those days. Eyes looking upwards, seeing the otter fur-patterned clouds and not registering some degree of contented awe. The reality? It's been raining the whole day and the sky's in perpetual overcast the past week. Probably a good thing though since I like the rain.... Continue Reading →
It's official. I can't read any more for or at least for the foreseeable future. I don't know if it's because I'm forcing myself into non-fiction or that I'm restricting myself to fewer books at once as I'm wont to read at least four at any given time. Which would be counter-intuitive for the very reason... Continue Reading →
Hello everyone, today I'd like to share with you a video of one of the most amazing men I've come to know via the internet, Mr. Les Brown. A motivational speaker many of you might be familiar with, if not here's your chance for a better way of living. I am not exaggerating. He, with... Continue Reading →

Five years. Five freaking years I've waited for this. The past few days found me in a state of periodic temporary despair. I'm doing better today but what made it even better was George Ezra's and Troye Sivan's upcoming releases. If you follow George you'd have seen a teaser for the first featured song as well as...

Eyeball that bit of wisdom. Read it again. One more time to be sure. Okay then. Maybe you recognize some of that in yourself, I know I do. An infernally astute quote from John's debut novel, Looking for Alaska. "Infernal" because it illustrates a sort of personal hell I should be scrambling to escape. A... Continue Reading →
I hope last year was a year of growth and progress and that this one will lead you on a better path. All the best!
This is a bit long and contains some profanity. I implore you to read it though, it's sincerely meant and for all to read. Hey, how are you? I'm writing from my desk when I could be, arguably, doing more important things. However, I believe that this may be one of the most crucial things... Continue Reading →
