Ignorance is bliss?… Ah, no..

The first thing you have to do, you meaning me, is accept the fact that you will always be in your head.

Thoughts will continually cross your mind and cause emotions and other obsessive thinking cause you have a mind that is already obsessed with external stimulation.


Bipolar Decisions

Sometimes I feel like my approach to life is all out of wack.

I write the wrong cover letter for a job or send the wrong email to a guy.  It’s all a wreck.  And it’s always been that way.

Being Hard Core is Hard Knocks

When I was a junior in college my mind was starting to get the worst of me.  My anxiety was so bad that I decided to try yoga.  And like all things in my life I was going to do it to the max.  I had no money at the time and was sharing a loft in Harlem.  When my roommate went on vacation I decided to take charge of the living room floor space so I bought a tape, and practiced Ashtanga yoga, 1.5 hours a day, seven days a week, for a full three months straight.

“What’s wrong with you?!”

“What is wrong with you?!”

I’d get that a lot as a kid growing up.  When I was younger my parents would take me places and sometimes the littlest thing would set me off.  I would start balling and not be able to control myself and my parents would just look at each other like they didn’t know what to do.
