Orlando

Writing this exact post has taken so much out of me. I have erased everything and started over so many times. The main reason is that the last few days have left me speechless. A city for which I called home for many years and a bar that was a safe haven for the LGBT community…

Just Believe

When you wake up in the morning and slam your hand on the alarm silencing for just 10 more minutes. Then you do it again, and again, and again. Truly hoping that work was canceled. Why is that? Is it because its before your thrive time? Or is it because your job doesn’t support your…

Lovin’ Dat YouTubez

One of the advantages of living in our current society is that you basically have the power to create any personal empire you desire. If you want to maintain a blog, record music videos, or even utilize social media for your pyramid scam, you can! We all know that I am trying to dip my…
