About
Having been through the worst year of my life last year, I decided on New Year's Eve, that 2012 was going to be the best year. I believe so much in that idea that, I decided to log my journey in a blog. I've always considered my life to be an open book. Well, now that book is being published for the world to see. Most of this blog isn't relevant to the outside world. But what you will get, if you decide to read it, is a record of the best, the worst, the most confident and the most insecure sides of me... Just a random guy living day to day.

    Well, it’s mid December and the year is coming to an end. You know, perhaps the year didn’t go as well as I would have liked but the truth is, there is so much for me to be proud of this year that I decided I needed to acknowledge them all one ti...

    on Nov 21, 2012
    In life there's a common belief that one should always remember "where they came from". Yet I truly believe that one of the great purposes of life is to move forward and evolve continuously. I think it's part of our genetic makeup to look back on p...

    on Nov 11, 2012
    It’s mid-November and the year of personal growth is rapidly coming to a close for me. Yet as time marches onward, I still feel that I am not quite there yet. I am trying very hard not to fall into an old trap.  Insecurity is a fascinating...

    on Oct 23, 2012
    One of the songs that I have listed the lyrics for in the past few weeks is called "Narcissistic Cannibal" by KORN. That is one of a small handful of songs that tells a story about self-sabotage and insecurity. It's a concept that I used to embrace a...

    on Oct 17, 2012
    A little over a year ago, I cut most people out of my life in an attempt to regroup. In retrospect, it was a strange decision I admit, but I reached a point where I didn't know who or what to trust. I deleted all but about 10 numbers from my phone a...

    It's October Already! That's amazing. It seems like yesterday that I started this new life.  It has been quite an unbelievable year so far and I still have a few months left. I took my first mid-term exam in 20 years today. I don't believe I di...

  • Prelude to a Post
    on Jul 4, 2012
    There is no doubt that as we entered July, the halfway point of 2012, I realized that this year, my "year of change" has become the strongest and most prolific year of my life. Even if, financially I am not there, emotionally I have struggled, and pr...

    Wow. The last 24 hours has been quite a roller coaster. Personally, I had to deal with the second to last step of my insane drama yesterday. I think it will be coming to an end any day now. I'm not happy with the impending result but it's far from...
