My wife loves true crime. I co-host a true crime podcast. We have very different relationships with true crime.

Don’t Unplug, Create Healthy Boundaries With The Internet

Every few months the sponsored advertisements on my news feed feature people who take a break from the social hustle for a number of reasons. Some do it because they are writers for internet news sources and have nothing more interesting to write about, some do it to make themselves seem more socially aware than …

2018 Reflections for the New Year

I started this blog to write semi-comedic essays about my life, but the last few months have been really hard. While I do have humor I can share with my loved ones about it, it’s been really hard for me to create a humorous concept longer than a tweet, or Instagram story. My Father-in-Law passed …

My Wife Hates It When I Spell My Name With a Dollar $ign

“You’re not Ke$ha!”, said my wife, embarrassed at a rough draft of my website.

Ok, no. She would never tell me I’m not Ke$ha, because she loves me. Actually, even though I want to think that she loves me, she did tell me to stop saying that it makes me like Ke$ha. Then she pointed out that the dollar sign was old ke$ha not the new Kesha who reclaimed her life. She’s worried people won’t take me seriously. I reminded her that when people look at me they usually don’t take me seriously.

My Kitten Died: And Other Mishaps of 2018

It’s November so I can start to shit on 2018 as a whole. I never like blaming a period of time. I think it’s a way to detach from responsibility. It also just puts bad energy in the world for the remainder of that time period. Remember 2016? Everyone was like FUCK 2016. We just …
