The Letter I’ve Been Writing my Friends

Lately, I’ve taken out construction paper, crayons, and a pen… to write some of my friends a letter from my heart. I think there is nothing as pure as a written letter. Yes, you can e-mail someone, you can text them a wonderful message, but to sit down and write a letter showcases something quite different. It shows you’re willing ...


Who is there for the Oldest?

4am. I’ve been at this blank page for over an hour, staring at the little straight line that ticks in and out of sight – all in beats of eighths as it waits for the letters to be typed out. I’m sitting on my chair, my bed in front of me, and a soft lamp to the corner that only ...


She Popped In My Head Again… why?

Again I’m not going to edit this or read it over. I’m here to spew so let’s spew. It’s more real that way, anyway. Beyond the anger, frustration, despair, and desolation is a fork standing at attention, it poking The Halal Guys beef bowl I brought home to devour. However, I can’t really enjoy this delicious beef bowl because she’s ...


Stop Caring About People Who Don’t Care About You

A few weeks ago I relapsed and I gambled. For those who don’t know I have a gambling problem and I made the grave mistake of going to a casino, withdrawing three hundred dollars from the ATM, and blowing it all away on poker. Old habits die hard. I have this belief that though bad things happen to me all ...


The Most Romantic Breakup Story Ever…

I was recently asked if I had a breakup story to share. This is the story – When I would close my eyes and think of her, I would see her smile. It forms ever so slowly to where her eyes squint softly, her cheeks begin to glow, and then the tiniest of dimples appear as if to remind you ...


The Time I Stole

I was recently asked to tell a time when I stole something. This is the story – In my freshman year at UC Berkeley, I lived in a dormitory called Bowles Hall. It looked and felt like the gloomy structure of an exact replica of Hogwarts. The only difference was the ability to find an amazing woman like Hermione Granger, ...


Acceptance?

It’s 4am. I can’t sleep. I need to write. I’m not going to lie, I was going to write a blogpost called “Being a Superstar Is the Biggest Lie Companies Tell You to Be” There is a mantra that floats around startup culture and corporate America in general: “if you don’t own the company, you should work late, outwork your ...


Why Instagram Vlogs Will Rule 2018

I’m going to warn you that I haven’t written in sometime. As a way to get back into the groove of things, I’m going to write about a theory I have when it comes to Instagram. This may not be the best written piece I’ve ever done. There might be grammatical errors, who knows. It’s all about getting back into ...


Thank You: My Year 2017

I recently wrote this on Facebook. However, I want these words to stay here forever so I’m going to paste the status here. Enjoy – This is going to be the longest piece I’ve ever written on FB. But I don’t care because these are words I never want to forget. In the beginning of 2017 I got into a ...


A Hot Date (a story)

I was recently asked to tell an embarrassing story. This is the story – Two years ago, the girlfriend at the time and I decided to have a home-cooked meal for our “date night.” We planned it all. We were going to make homemade Vietnamese pho and simply catch up on the lives we were leading. Couple things. Couple goals. ...


I got into a car accident

I must have pressed the backspace on this keyboard at least 100 times already. Word after word, sentence after sentence, deleted. It’s funny because the wordpress interface is one of my favorite places to write my thoughts and right now, right now I’m having the most difficult time organizing my thoughts to create paragraphs. I blame it on the car accident. It ...


Fade To 4:39am (a story)

Fade to 4:39am and this ambiguous structure of words that need to be stretched out, stripped out, and then torn out to extrapolate the pain floating in my head. Who knew laying in bed since 9pm would make 4:39am so deadly? To be awake, to be energized, but then to be surrounded by stillness, is destructive. It is in 4am ...
