That Time I Went to My Buddy’s Wedding in Philadelphia & Decided to Move There – Part III

Making Philadelphia a Reality I picked a move date of September 1st, which gave me 6 weeks to find a job and place to live. I used my buddy’s address to apply for jobs so I wouldn’t be screened out of the initial process although I made it clear on my resume that I’d be moving to PA in September. A large web company … Read More That Time I Went to My Buddy’s Wedding in Philadelphia & Decided to Move There – Part III

The Day of the Wedding I woke up excited because today was the big day, my boy was getting married!

How My 30th Birthday Plans Got Effed Up & I Ended Up at a Winery – Part I

When I was in my mid-20s, my buddy threw an epic 30th birthday party at his place with free-flowing booze and whatnot that I used to wonder what my 30th birthday party would look like (insert a cartoon cloud above my head): My friends and I would go to the hottest bar or restaurant in town, I’d be dressed up all GQ, they’d be wearing … Read More How My 30th Birthday Plans Got Effed Up & I Ended Up at a Winery – Part I

If You Want More Adventure in Your Life Then Add More Spontaneity

I don’t like to make plans when I travel, besides the basic logistics of course. I like to drop in and figure things out as I go which is the best way to travel because if you’re planning your trip then you’re creating a hyped-up future that reality will fail to match up to, leaving you feeling disappointment and sad. But, if you do something new … Read More If You Want More Adventure in Your Life Then Add More Spontaneity

Day 3 It’s 7 in the morning and I’m sitting in my rental car Googling “how to start a Mazda 3” because there’s nowhere for me to insert my key into the ignition. Turns out, I have to press the Start Stop Engine button. I do. And the car comes alive. I’m an idiot. I backed out of a narrow alleyway and headed off for … Read More Adventures Surfing in L.A., Drinking Wine in Malibu, & Meditating on the Beach During a Beautiful Sunset – Part II

Adventures Surfing in L.A., Drinking Wine in Malibu, & Meditating on the Beach During a Beautiful Sunset – Part I

I’m going to tell you about one of the greatest trips of my life: Los Angeles, Fall 2017. My epic trip started off chaotic, like all trips do. The first plane I was supposed to catch out of Oklahoma City experienced a “parts malfunction” and was therefore inoperable, throwing off everyone’s schedule. Instead of freaking the fuck out like everyone else around me did, I stayed … Read More Adventures Surfing in L.A., Drinking Wine in Malibu, & Meditating on the Beach During a Beautiful Sunset – Part I
