On any given day…

Emotions are weird, aren’t they? On any given day you can go from extremely happy to extremely miserable in a heartbeat. And, most of the time, there’s no way to control it. Your head can say, “hey, what happened dude, we were so happy a minute ago” and your heart goes, “SHUT UP AND GIVE […]

Do yourself a favor kid, take the train

I don’t drive. I know, gasp shocking. At least it’s shocking to most people in Los Angeles. “You don’t drive?” I swear I’m going to get a card printed to explain why I don’t drive. But this isn’t about driving. This is about commuting. I commute back and forth from the office on the days […]

I forget some times…

The other day I told a friend about the day as a kid that I realized, for the first time, that not everyone was a Christian. It kind of blew my mind. I say kind of, but really it really exploded my mind. It was as if before life was the tiny circle that revolved around […]

Maybe You’re the Problem

My first experience with a comic book store was when one opened up next to our grocery store when I was still in elementary school. It was a magical place in my mind. Until then, I only thought of comic books as coming FROM grocery stores (remember those days guys?). The owner didn’t care that […]

I was so alone… and I owe you so much.

I’ll be completely honest. I’m having a rough start to 2014. After a lovely holiday with family and time off from work — I’m struggling to stay hopeful. I usually keep quiet when I’m struggling – maybe talk to some friends, but Nutty got me thinking about how people are usually positive in social media […]
