What’s BEEF?

What can be learned from other people’s beefs. If you’re a Hip Hop Head as I am, then you are probably familiar with rap beef. However, in case you’re not familiar, a rap beef is when two or more rappers engage in a dispute via music. Sometimes, the “beef” is contained inside of the musicContinue reading “What’s BEEF?”

Maybe We’re Crazy…

My Tribute To Gnarles Barkley’s “Crazy” (as it pertains to my journey). I remember the first time I went to Venice Beach after moving to Los Angeles. At that point, I didn’t know anyone in town, and I was more or less a loner. But this was Los Angeles, pre Covid-19. Anything that I couldContinue reading “Maybe We’re Crazy…”

Kanye West vs. Chrisette Michele

What’s up everyone! Yes, I’ve been away for a while, as I am still getting acclimated to my new surroundings.  Things are going swell and I am adjusting well.  I plan to get back to blogging regularly very soon. I was recently sent this article, the author is a really good friend of mine. HisContinue reading “Kanye West vs. Chrisette Michele”

The Power of Influence: What Kind of Impact Do You Have On Others?

What Is Your Life’s Theme? I’ve always been a lover of music, and for as long as I can remember, I’ve always chosen special songs as my personal theme songs.  When I was younger, the songs would always express vanity (half jokingly, half seriously). For a example, in the past I had chosen songs like:Continue reading “The Power of Influence: What Kind of Impact Do You Have On Others?”

Knowing Your Worth: Define Yourself

You Are Priceless Lately, a couple of my friends have been talking about this guy that we all know (or at least, know of).  He’s the type of person who is all ego — no substance.  I doubt if anyone really knows who he really is.  He’s so obsessed with what he has that theContinue reading “Knowing Your Worth: Define Yourself”

Don’t Be Afraid To Say No

Take Care of #1 Those who have spent enough time around me have likely heard me state the phrase, “So.  They won’t die from that“, or, “They won’t die from madness, disappointment, etc“.  Anyone who has heard me make that statement most likely heard it during a conversation about someone having to say “NO” toContinue reading “Don’t Be Afraid To Say No”

Life: Don’t Take It For Granted

Dedicated to Napolin.  RIH. As I’ve shared with you all a few times before, by trade, I work in customer service. (I’ve also shared how very badly that job gets on my nerves, but I digress.)  The very first call that I answered today was from a woman who was a front desk agent atContinue reading “Life: Don’t Take It For Granted”

Anxiety, Insecurity, And Overthinking

You Control Your Thoughts I spent a great part of today overthinking things.  As I’ve expressed in prior articles, I’m about to make a huge life change.  This change is like no other transition that I have ever made.  With making changes of any kind, there are always moving parts, sometimes a few, sometimes many. Continue reading “Anxiety, Insecurity, And Overthinking”

Being Strong In Tough Situations

Making It Through A Storm If you follow me on Facebook, Instagram, or YouTube, then you’ve heard or read about me getting caught in a tornado last week.  In the case that you don’t follow me on any of the above mentioned social media outlets, here’s what happened. I was out jogging on a fairlyContinue reading “Being Strong In Tough Situations”
