I’m 39 years old. Learning how to cook rice has been a terrible exercise in adulthood for me, one I’ve failed at for years. To give an illustration of how long I’ve been attempting to do this, consider that I first consulted the internet via Yahoo-- as in before Google...

I’ve often heard people say, “It’s lonely at the top”. But when I was in Vegas, every morning I looked out at the mountains just on the other side of the airport.

There was no ONE mountain— that would be a volcano. It was a range of mountains.

After I traveled up the...

Procrastination and I were best friends.

Or so I thought. 

With deadlines looming far ahead, I sat back putting off those things that I could have easily completed without pressure.

But that pressing presence of time became so necessary for me to eke out my greatest cre...

Netflix saves me from boredom. Surprisingly, I’m enjoying some of their original movies on a professional level and a mindless-binge level. Oh sure there are some plot issues or story issues in them but, for the price of an $11 a month ticket (subscription), I won’t co...

I know it’s just 10:34am but I’m feeling lost. There are things I can do: read a book, continue my screenplay, get out of bed. But I’m still having a hard time putting down my phone. 

I’ve deleted my social media apps and my addictive games too— GardenQuest and a cookin...

My eye may be better but my heart’s not yet healed.

I still have something that needs to be said.

We failed you.

Not the You-Failed-English type of way but the We-Failed-to-Prepare-You-for-Life way.

We can talk about how your generation doesn’t care about real education, h...

Yesterday a fight broke out during lunch; fights happen nearly every day here in this school. Kids chatted excitedly about the fight that popped up almost instantly on their expensive phones via SnapChat.

I got an instant migraine and my eye began to hurt. I popped a...
