Something weird happened today. My alarm clock was set for 8 am, yet I rose at 6 am. I had a weird feeling. I went straight to my computer, opened up Microsoft Word, and began to write. Not a blog post, but a book. But the fucked up thing is, I didn't know what the book was about. I saved the file as "mystery book" and just decided to write. Free flow I was … [Read more...]

A beautiful brunette girl with light brown eyes stood across the bar. It was time to make the move. I walked up to her, introduced myself, and put my hand out expecting her to do the same in return. But...she didn't. In fact, she did nothing. Complete silence. Complete dismissal. REJECTED. Straight head shot. Did it hurt? You bet. Did my heart rate … [Read more...]
