Birthday Celebrations

I was never much into celebrating my birthday. Well, I shouldn’t say ‘never’; there was this one time that my mom threw me an amazing birthday party when I was 8. She invited all my friends, created all these fun games for everyone to play (handmade from scratch) and even made sure to have prizes for everyone. Everyone had a fantastic time. Unfortunately, by doing so, she inevitably set a […]

People at Parties be like…

There are all kinds of different parties out there and it’s safe to say that I’ve been to most of them. There were the college frat house ones where everyone walked around awkwardly from one couch to another gripping their red plastic cups in hopes that no one would slip a roofie in it. Those days were super lame; there would always be some nerd who couldn’t hold his liquor, […]

Not Your Ordinary Uber Ride

This one time, with no Band Camp in sight, still drunk from the night before, my friend and I decided to continue the silliness at our friend’s house. We were running on about 2 hours of sleep if that, so needless to say we were slightly delirious. With our hair wet from the pool and our legs bruised from last night’s adventures, instead of getting behind the wheel, like the […]

Board Games & Bored Dirty Minds

If you find yourself in a room full of people that are staring at their phones instead of being interactive, all you need is some markers, computer paper and a motivational speech to change that situation for the better. My friends and I found ourselves in a similar predicament a few weekends ago; everyone was wiped out from hot tubbing, swimming in the pool and drinking all day. So there […]

Welcome to the Neighborhood

Isn’t it wonderful to have neighbors that care about your wellbeing? They greet you with a pie when you first move in, and from then on they forever pry in your life, taking a dip into your business, collecting information for their personal amusement. I’ve never been “fortunate” enough to live in a cul-de-sac or whatever that makes people reach such levels of friendliness and quite frankly I’d like to […]

Early is “On Time”

The thing that sucks about having to come in to a mandatory meeting at work on a day that you’re scheduled to be the closing bartender is exactly that – you’re inevitably there for the “opening” but you can’t leave early as your responsibility is to close and therefore to stay ‘til the bitter end. This was one of those days. I was on the schedule for 5pm, but there […]

THE TALE OF A MAN’S STOLEN HOPES AND DREAMS

This tale takes place on a day much like any other day when I wake up in a house that’s not my own from a drunken rager and instead of going back to sleep like the rest, I start straightening the place up. It usually starts with small things, like picking up the garbage from the floor and compiling the beer cans and bottles into a garbage bag. If I’m […]

The Brotherhood of a Traveling Fur Coat

This story takes place in NY. A friend of mine and her boyfriend came to visit me on the East Coast from the sunny California during the month of February. Just to paint you a picture, I haven’t heard as many “It’s so cold here, I wanna go home” comments in such a short period of time from anyone as I did that day from my sun spoiled friends, ever. […]
