Maybe I'll make a Resolution... Maybe God started...
An Awesome Event Just happened… God’s Son, Jesus, came into our world. The event has consequence in my life, meaning I have to do something, I have to act in some definitive way. Being nicer, or being kinder just isn’t going to cut it. God’s Son was made flesh, and so should my decision… New Years Resolutions can be a vain attempt at self congratulatory narcisism...
I practiced the art of asserting my boundaries. The truth is I have too many people in my life attempting to manipulate and control me swearing that they are friends who care, and I have had to end those relationships. This also included a tempering of the way I exposed my entire life on Facebook. I saw the death of social networking, when every person and their grandma’s poodle...
So did Christmas just really finish?
If your religion is consumerism, secularism, idunno-ism, spiritualbutnotreligiousism then christmas began about mid-october and ended on december 24. your holiday celebration probably consisted of a lot of shopping for others, as well as getting those discounts, it also probably included required awkward holiday parties with your various social gatherings where junk gifts were exchanged that you...

It's Christmas and I am Californian
I won’t be nostalgic for the snow… the kind of snow storm that i had to shovel slushy grey dirty snow every other day in Chicago. I will probably go out in the sun and enjoy the warm sunny weather and palm trees everywhere. I won’t wear any sweaters, especially tacky santa claus and mistletoe, or awkward turtlenecks or any other christmas outfit people are supposed to wear,...

Advent, Vegetarians, John the Baptist...
The second week of Advent, we see our readings concentrating on John the Baptist, who wore wild fur, ate honey and locusts… I was once in a fourth grade, and one bright girl was asking some pretty deep questions, way beyond, I conceive of a typical fourth grader’s critical thinking skills. While most kids were asking about “Are you allowed to have pets? Are you allowed to play...
Some hip hop music updates
A lot of people have been bugging me for the past several years about witnessing some of my music. For the most part, this is under the assumption that i should just rap on a webcam… while neglecting the whole experience of hip hop culture and art. I can’t just pluck a guitar string and carry a vocal note over youtube, its a lot more technical then people seem to think. I have been...

How about social justice in the home →
wow this article completely blew me away, there hasn’t been a spin like this before. Personally, growing up, I thought marriage was a joke. I watched old people, adults, marry and divorce like exchanging a sweater that doesn’t fit at target. I thought the marriage ceremonies are equally a joke. What is not a joke, however, is all the pain, the scars, the guilt, the loneliness, the...
