Fresh Start: Job vs. Career. Passion plus Purpose

Timing has always been a bitch. It has never been on my side. Whether something was a waste of time, the wrong point in time or just not having time period. Finally. Fiy-nuh-leeeeeee. Time has gotten on board with the kid. Just to give a quick run down of my last 5 years in the career world: …

Post-Independence Day: Find your Freedom

Well Happy Belated Birthday Amurica… I’m truly happy you’ve gotten your freedom. Now, now I’d like to have my freedom. *cues Beyonce* I feel like I spend  a lot of time wondering what the difference is between myself and those who I view as “successful”.  One of my favorite quotes in regards to that thought: …

Pre-Independence Day: Fuck Adulthood.

Man fuck adulthood. I wish someone had told me as a child that this shit is a trap. I’m 27, man-less, child-less, at a job I just did a career change to this year after being unemployed for half the year before. Though I managed to successfully swerve student loans, credit card debt and a car …

[Over] Commitment Issues

I have a confession to make… I have a commitment issue. Interesting enough, I’m not referring to relationships, I’m actually referring to work and extracurriculars. From the time I can remember in high school I’ve always over committed myself. Back then I thought I was just doing it in order to get some extracurricular activities on my …

Falling in Love with the Representative

My feelings for you were like honey dripping from a wooden spoon into a bowl of sweet unbaked desserts. Slow and sensual, raw and warm. I’d look into your eyes and my heart would ignite and send tingles all over my body. Everything felt like a fairy tale. Magically unbelievably believable. Every day thoughts of …
