Long Beach, California will soon be a distant memory; I’m leaving the state.

I haven’t decided where to yet, but I have narrowed it down to three options: New York, Georgia, and Alabama.

Business is good. I have four commissioned paintings, two video projects, and what seems like a ton of other obligations. I’m here for the hustle, though. This is the first time I am attempting to keep this many balls in the air by myself.

I’m riding solo these days. My 10-month relationship crashed and burned (in the most beautiful way). There were so many lessons that I finally took the time to examine. Because of what I found in myself I decided to take some time off from dating and intimate relationships. I’m hoping that with taking some time to really heal myself, my next at-bat will be a home-run.

I haven’t been posting on my vlog lately which sucks because I do miss it. Maybe if I get a few new followers I’ll start up again (hint, hint).

What I’m focusing on these days is:

  • Exercising (basic training around the house)
  • Working PT at a hardware store
  • Healing from my last relationship
  • Knocking out as many freelance gigs as I possibly can
  • Still slanging coffee mugs

I am currently reading The Magic of Thinking BIG by David J. Schwartz Ph.D.

I am still living in Long Beach, California. Summer is just about over.

I have gotten back into web development as a means of generating extra income. I’ve also decided to apply for a part-time position at places like Home Depot and Trader Joe’s. I have an interview next week so I’m excited to see what comes of it.

My vlog (click here to see it) is coming along quite nicely. I haven’t posted one in a couple of weeks but I plan to get back active as soon as I get a handle the projects I’m currently juggling.

I am still living the sober life. I think the clarity I’m having these days is a byproduct of sobriety. Plus my douche levels have nearly bottomed out (this is also something I’m happy about).

Another thing worth mentioning is I am training to run a 5k. This will be my first one so I’m excited.

I have narrowed my life focuses down to five things. This is what that looks like:

  • Exercising (running, yoga, weight training)
  • Freelancing via the internet
  • Building furniture (a new found hobby)
  • Expanding my knowledge of design
  • Selling coffee mugs

I am currently reading Black Privilege by Charlamange tha God.

I’m more active than ever knocking out side projects. If you’d like to hire me, click here.

I am currently living in Long Beach, California. Summer is right around the corner.

After avoiding taking the vlogging plunge for many years (due to fears and insecurities), I am finally committed to doing just that. If you care to see this manifest, please subscribe to my YouTube channel.

I currently am 100% sober. This came after years of smoking cigarettes (quit date: 2-1-2017), drinking booze, and for about one month annually (give or take) becoming a stoner.

I have narrowed my life focuses down to five things. This is what that looks like:

  • Manufacturing The Microchief
  • Exercising (running, yoga, weight training)
  • Blogging and vlogging
  • Building & maintaining healthy relationships
  • Freelancing via the internet

This is it for me for now; nothing more, nothing less.
