When Beauty is A Curse

When Beauty is A Curse

By societies standards, I am considered to be a handsome man. I am tall, statuesque, possess a medium build with a wonderful smile and bone structure that is chiseled and wonderfully well-defined. You would think that with all these great physical attributes my cell phone would be ringing non-stop and my inbox would be always full of potential suitors but truth … Continue reading

Spiritual S&M

Spiritual S&M

I have gone to God in prayer recently to ask him for his help. I am trying desperately to find my independence and have been having a difficult time doing so lately.

Human Dumping Grounds

Lately it seems like everyone I meet has this overwhelming need to share. It’s almost as though their lives depended on it. They do not express any real interest in what I have to say but rather bombard me with what ever is happening in their lives at any given moment regardless of my obvious disinterest in what they … Continue reading

My Name is Human

My Name is Human

I am officially terrified. After helping my mother download and install Skyvi (a Siri-like voice controlled personal assistant) onto her android phone, I started to realize, we are not human anymore. We are slowly becoming obsolete and replaced with human-like technology that can simulate everything we do. This new technology can call your friends, send text messages … Continue reading
