This week, I “celebrate” the 11 year anniversary of a car accident that nearly claimed my life. I’ve reposted this story on the anniversary of the accident, and made some improvements along the way, each of the past six years. Each time, it’s a fresh reminder of my “miracle.”

11 Years Later: April 4, 2003

After nine plus years of calling Miami home, and occasionally joining in on the “Miami bashing,” I’m prepared to finally take a public stance and say that I, in fact, truly love this city. And I’ve seen a lot of it – I’ve lived in the Fontainebleau area that borders Doral(zuela), lived on the edge of the Everglades, bounced over to Coconut Grove, then Coral Gables, then Little Havana (yes, a theoretical step back), then […]

9 Reasons Miami is Magnificent

If you’re lucky, college is four years – maybe more – to learn a skill set, take on a variety of life experiences and develop new, meaningful friendships. My own experiences qualify me as “lucky” by that standard. I got good grades, covered a lifetime of years in experiences and for a couple of years during and after school, I lived in an unofficial frat house with two of my official ‘frat bros’ and one […]

Cancer & Why I’m an Asshole

I’ve done all I can to avoid the gratuitous moments of self-reflection that are popping up as I march toward the milestone that is my 30th birthday, but it’s been a losing battle. Every 20-something has a list of things – written or mentally logged – that they expect to check off before the clock hits 30. And I’m thankful to say that I hit all of those when I was 28. I became a […]

Letting Go

It was a passionate night between the Colombian brunette goddess and me – Robin Thicke playing in the background, and some Erykah Badu, too – that kind of night. The lady in question was one whom I’d been seeing for a while. Not quite official, but close enough. And she was gorgeous – nearly my height, and slender but womanly at every curve and crevice. You know the type – completely out of my league.

You Want Me to Choke You?

We’re down to the wire for New Year’s resolutions! As you saw in my most recent blog, there are some popular ones – many involve health, love and money and improving the state of those are all admirable ambitions for the upcoming year. But as a New Year lays in wake, I also get a kick out of making predictions for the upcoming year that involve other people, or people in general. For example, in each […]

14 Predictions for 2014

Is it true that “if you don’t use it, you lose it”? Why, yes, it is. Take my writing, for example. What used to come out of me with ease on a regular basis now feels like forced, written arrogance. And don’t get me wrong – it’s definitely that. Anyone who creates a website with a self-proclamation as its namesake, then fills it to overflowing with his own opinions, definitely isn’t short on ego.

The Blog About Nothing

Bullying is at the center of our news world yet again, as Miami Dolphin’s player Richie Incognito was removed from the team indefinitely this week after revelations that he bullied and publicly shamed fellow teammate, Jonathan Martin.
