You know, people are often making a nerd seem like it’s a bad thing. I think nerd is often confused with passionate. I believe i’m a nerd, a cool nerd none the less. I have passions that others might not understand, but to me they mean the world and i’m willing to defend them. If we all have something that we’re passionate about than we’re all nerds. That could be fashion, films, animals, medicine, your kids, anything that we would defend to the death. I’ve learned to embrace this part of me, it’s really helped me with accomplishing a lot.…

As race relations in America continue to be tense, I’ve found that people just find it hard to laugh now a days. Well i’ve got a story that will hopefully put a smile on some people’s faces. – So i’m in the break room at work just chilling and eating, hoping no one will talk to me. – I work in this very interesting town where racism was once very prominent. – A lot of the people I work with are either from Latin America, or they are straight country white people. I’m pretty much kicking it alone as the…

Conversations with like minded people can be so enlightening. You can find out a lot about your passion towards a situation just from a feeling. Usually, it’s a relaxed mind, a warm body, and a smiling face that shows just how positively the conversation impacted you. My cousin wants to be an entrepreneur and is working hard to make that dream come true. As we were talking about work and how frustrating it is to have to clock in for someone else she told me “It’s fine because this is my last traditional job I’m ever going to work.” WHEW!…

When someone uses the phrase “It’s a fine line between……” I usually open my mind up to listen. Walking a fine line between two opposites is very tough. You need one, in order to make the other stronger, even though they are complete opposites. It’s something a human battles day in and day out. I decided to take a break from writing for the weekend, it was a much needed rest. When you’ve been going at something for 7 or 8 straight months (no days off), you need to rest your mind. But a fine line is walked. I started…

While I was at work today something happened. A co-worker got tragic news that his brother suddenly died this morning. Of course, I had to make sure he was dead dead, and he was. So some other co-workers started seeing if people would donate money so that he could take off work to handle his business. At first I thought to myself, I can’t. Solely because I knew I needed that money later on. Then I had a song pop into my head as I walked around for a few more minutes. It was Kendrick Lamar’s- how much a dollar…

The work week is terrible. You have to wake up in the morning, go to a manager who may be an ass hole, and steadily work at job where you constantly feel unappreciated. The only thing that keeps us going day in and day out are days of the week. We want to get through each day just so that we can have that “Me” time. Whether we want to admit it or not, Days of the week affect our mood a whole lot more than we may think. So as I was sitting at work pissed, and tired I…

So much is in the news about how terrible things are in the world. A piece of me truly believes that people are losing it. But every time I start to get discouraged about the way things are, God shows up and shows you that people are good, we just don’t focus on it. I was at work, and one of the truck drivers was talking to me. He told me about how his truck broke down the other day and how he had to stop on the side of the road to see what was wrong with it. He…

I love the internet, what it has done for the common person is amazing. You can possibly do what you’ve always loved if you work hard enough at it. The internet is killing the way the corporation operated and it’s making for a happier world. You can look at what’s going on in Argentina simply by swiping through Instagram or checking out someone’s traveling blog. Knowing you can do that with such ease means that the once voiceless now have a voice, and THAT is a double edged sword. While there are so many people that deserve to be heard,…

You know, one thing is true in life. If we go searching for one thing, we often times find something else. I’m an open minded individual, I believe that everyone has an opinion and has reasons to feel the way that they do. Sometimes those feelings are misguided, but if we talk instead of fight we will learn more about each other and live in harmony. When I first started planning my trip to go down to South Carolina for the protests of the confederate flag removal I was expecting the worst. I was expecting people to fight, I was…

Fear. That word is associated with so much. Many people think about things that simply frightened them as a child, someone else could be thinking about a trauma that occurred in their life. One thing that is consistent about fear is the fact that it blocks us from experiencing a lot in life. Fear can alter people’s perception thus changing their lives. One thing that is very true that was told to us often as kids “You must face your fears.” You face these fears only because they will open up the gates to so many other opportunities. As you…
