… What do you write about?

By | December 14, 2017

So, earlier today, I was asked what I wrote about… I didn’t really have a good answer because the most writing that I’ve done lately has been on this blog. I’ve been thinking about a few different stories; I don’t know which one I’m going to run with. However, I’m going to write random posts… Read More »

Saudade

By | December 6, 2017

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build,… Read More »

Second class citizens

By | December 6, 2017

I’m tired of being a second class citizen. When an institution can allow discrimination based on any attribute that an individual shares with a group, they are creating a class or group of “lesser” people. I thought that we would have made progress by now. There is no place for religion inside the government (separation of… Read More »

Important notes for those on “Dating Apps”

By | November 18, 2017

I really hate being ignored.  I went ahead and labeled this “rant-one” in the permalink above because I have a feeling that I might make this into a series. Let’s say that if someone came up to you in a cafe and tried to start a conversation, just a conversation, with no sexual overtones or anything… Read More »

I moved, driving, and other things.

By | November 14, 2017

I recently moved into a new apartment. It’s nice, but it’s in an area of Austin that I used to live in. While the interior of my apartment is great, I don’t necessarily feel 100% safe while walking around at night. Someone was “assaulted with a deadly weapon” less than 500-800 feet from my apartment… Read More »

A random Tuesday…

By | September 27, 2017

So, last night I was hanging out at Epoch coffee… Ran into one of the regulars and met two new people. During this time, we talked about everything and anything, very openly. I loved every minute of it. At about 1am, one of the guys said, “you want to go grab some tacos?” … Hell… Read More »

Daily Prompt: Focused

By | September 26, 2017

This is going to be a short post… Because I can’t stay focused… Go figure… I can’t stay focused on almost anything at the moment. My mind wanders around in what seems to be aimless and endless thought. Every time that I think that I can be focused on something, such as writing, I always… Read More »

克服

By | September 12, 2017

I decided to start this post with the Chinese text that I have tattooed on my arm. I had a crush on someone that was unrequited and I used the tattoo to “Overcome” the emotional barrier. Now, I think that I should call upon the power in this tattoo to overcome some obstacles in my… Read More »

Can we be human in a digital age?

By | September 12, 2017

  To have sympathy for another human is yet another expression of connection and of love in a way. I think that almost every situation that you’re currently going through, someone else has already gone through in some way or another… We all have broken hearts at some point. We all make mistakes. Sure some… Read More »
