So I’m playing this game called life…

By on Jun 9, 2014

So I’m playing this game called life… No, no… im writing this book…. It’s hard to think that in the 1st 7 or 8 chapters I was very shy and unsure of myself. Around the17th I found myself a cold and heartless human. This trend continued until around the 20th chapter. It was around the 21st chapter that I became hardened, numb to all feelings and emotions. The 23rd chapter was very short but one of the most important in the book because it changed the theme moving forward. Now I watch as the pages pass and I can honestly say that I feel as if I’m writing a completely different story. I’m curious to see what’s...

Quotes | Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

By on Jan 20, 2014

The first question which the priest and the Levite asked was: “If I stop to help this man, what will happen to me?” But… the good Samaritan reversed the question: “If I do not stop to help this man, what will happen to him?”

I am shaving off my 6″ Mohawk!!!

I am shaving off my 6″ Mohawk!!!

By on Dec 20, 2013

I love my 6″ Mohawk but will be bald within the next few months. Why!? …For childhood cancer, that’s why! Around this time last year I discovered a foundation called St. Baldricks. They run a program where you sign up and shave your head to raise awareness of childhood cancer. “We don’t make wigs, collect hair to soak up oil spills or long to be just like Britney Spears–in fact, the shaving itself is just a means to an end. On the surface, we shave because kids with cancer often lose their hair during treatment, and we stand proudly bald beside them. But the true goal–to cure childhood cancer–will be accomplished because, while shaving, we raise funds for lifesaving childhood cancer research.” Basically I have committed to shave off my 6+ inch Mohawk. I have more than wanted to back out of this a few times already BUT have made a commitment to myself. This was solidified roughly 9 months ago after meeting Danielle from my local chamber of commerce. Danielle is a “Takes no crap from anyone, tell it how it is” kind of person and I like that about her. We quickly became friends after she realised i wasn’t the Antichrist. One day, over lunch we started sharing stories of the past. One of which is why she had short hair. ”St. Baldricks” she said. Danielle had shaved her head for the same foundation I found a few months earlier. She explained the process to me in great detail and at the end of our conversation I said “I’ll do it”. As Danielle’s smile grew she offered to sponsor me for the march 2014 shaving event. Since then I have thought about this on a daily basis. I’m not going to lie, I’m a little nervous about the cutting of my hair but it’s time to start making things happen… “Shavees” sign up on the website, collect money from friends and family much like a walk-a-thon, and show up at a volunteer-organized event in their community to take their turn in the barber’s chair. It’s fun, it’s emotional, and it’s for a crucially important cause.” Learn mere HERE. I am lucky to have access to great resources...
