Hiatus over: breaking the trend, returning to church

Hiatus over: breaking the trend, returning to church
When I awoke yesterday morning, I did the same routine so many others do on a Sunday morning. I got up, had coffee, read the news, and showered. Then, I did something unusual for me. Actually, it’s something becoming more unusual for Americans in general. I went to church! That’s right, I, a loud, gay, immigrant-loving, equal rights... Read more »

Facebook's 'On This Day' becomes prosaic

Facebook's 'On This Day' becomes prosaic
By now, everybody should know that Facebook has a feature called On This Day. For the few that are not aware, it’s a daily look back at all the shit you’ve posted on Facebook in previous years. For those people who use Facebook only as a way to track milestones, this is probably a wonderful feature that... Read more »

Procrastination and planning are not mutually exclusive

Procrastination and planning are not mutually exclusive
Note: As part of this month’s Blogapalooza-Hour at ChicagoNow, we were given one hour to write about what, why and how we procrastinate. This is my entry into this month’s challenge. When it comes to procrastination, I like to claim that I have mostly perfected it. After all, I have had over 25 years of experience. Procrastination became... Read more »

Some days be glad you wore underwear...

Some days be glad you wore underwear...
I’m the kind of guy that takes the ‘casual’ part of business casual very seriously. I like to dress comfortably, and I tend to cycle through the same outfits over and over. I honestly don’t care that I have a closet full of clothes, I just grab the first few and that’s my weeks worth of outfits. After... Read more »

Spring into a healthier you!

Spring into a healthier you!
It’s the first official day of Spring. This means it is time for so many of us to realize we did not quite meet our body goals in time for beach season. However, we have 92 days until Summer, which means there is still hope. I am personally following the plan laid out by The Exercise... Read more »

Hello Autumn, Goodbye Safe Place

I remember the Autumn of 1997 very well. I had turned 18 over the summer, and I was anxious to move away to start my new life as an adult in the real world. I knew it would be hard, and I was aware that there would be obstacles in my way that would make... Read more »

Summer begins; and the weight loss struggle continues

Summer begins; and the weight loss struggle continues
Oh I’m so original and unique with my weight problems. Just kidding, I’m just like so many other people in the world, I emotionally eat. I eat when I’m happy, sad, worried, relaxed, bored, or excited. So, when I ended a relationship, changed jobs, and moved all within about a month of each other, I... Read more »

Cockblocked by CVS: Not every neighborhood is Boystown

Cockblocked by CVS: Not every neighborhood is Boystown
I recently moved from Boystown-adjacent to not-so-Boystown-adjacent. The move has been excellent thus far. Since there are no bars around, I’m saving so much money by drinking alone in the basement. Also, not living near of one of the best gayborhood’s in the country has made me a slightly more responsible adult. Of course, with... Read more »

Hey negative people, if you don't like what I love just keep it to yourself

Hey negative people, if you don't like what I love just keep it to yourself
As someone who loves to be in a crowd and who loves to step into the spotlight, it comes as a shock to a lot of people that I do not really care for people that much. To me, people are just so annoying, myself included. Whether they are whining about their job/partner/mistress/house or complaining... Read more »
