Up and running

For the first time in 8 months I decided to do a timed one-mile run. The last time, I completed it in 7:48 which was embarrassingly slow for me. My personal best time of 5:30 was accomplished during either my junior or senior year of high school. While I don’t think I will, at age […]

R.I.P Albert “Prodigy” Johnson

Like most hip-hop fans I was taken by surprise last week when Prodigy from Mobb Deep was pronounced dead of either complications from Sickle Cell or from choking while being hospitalized due to the aforementioned condition.

More time to waste

Two weeks ago the manager of my business group at work encouraged me to join in on the fun of playing with him and his friends on the PlayStation Network. Against my better judgement I decided to buy a refurbished PS4 along with MLB The Show 2017 and WWE2k17. It’s the WWE game that he […]

Paying respects

This weekend I traveled with my mother and a group of family friends to Mansfield, Ohio for the funeral of a mutual friend. He lived a full life in his 83 years so I don’t view it as an occasion to mourn. We will all die one day so all that is in our power […]

Automotivation

Today was an average Friday until I returned from lunch and my manager asked if I wanted to join him at the New York International Auto Show since he had an extra free pass. I hadn’t been to the auto show in over two decades so I happily accepted and we walked the three-by-five blocks […]
