  • From words to works

    It’s not hard to notice all the self-proclaimed life-long learners around you. They’re everywhere! Be it social media, networking events, or your apartment complex. Everyone (including me) follows a path for their self-development through books, media, and whatnot. We take copious notes, share, and even teach to solidify all we’ve learned! But what are the […]

  • Life advice by Werner Herzog

    Werner Herzog is possibly one of my all-time favorite filmmakers. I so love his documentaries and watched almost all of them! And if you’ve watched some of his interviews, you’ll realize that he’s also an armchair philosopher.  I found this gem while perusing Kottke.org (thanks, Jason!) and decided it was steal-worthy enough to be reposted here. The […]

  • Thanks, but no thanks!

    Have you ever been in a gather where some random dude walks up to you and asks, “so, what do you do for a living?”? And even before you respond, you know deep down it’s going downhill from there. Why? Chances are this guy is a passionate motivational speaker, a life-coach, and a mentor to […]

The hardest aspect about writing is the time and space it demands to write down something that makes sense, agrees with my own logic, […]

  • Be what you want to be…

    … just don’t blame others/circumstances/your parents/fate/office politics/the economy if things aren’t working out for you. And that’s not assuming things are always going to be bad. Absolutely not. What I’m suggesting, however, is that you need to own your shit because nobody else is going to do it for you. What peeves me the most […]

  • We are verbs, not nouns

    Stephen Fry once said in an interview: “Oscar Wilde said that if you know what you want to be, then you inevitably become it – that is your punishment, but if you never know, then you can be anything. There is a truth to that. We are not nouns, we are verbs. I am not […]
