Hero Or Villain? The Decision Is Ultimately Yours.

Lately, I've been in my own head just thinking and overthinking about things. And I'll be honest, it's exhausting! Mentally, I'm all over the place. Thinking about my future, thinking about the now, thinking about what needs to be done. It gets to you sometimes when you're trying to better yourself and the negativity just seeps in and takes over. Then I began thinking about why do we always go through these bad times? Then it occured to me that we are on our own archetypal journey so to...

Advice to the MGTOW (Men Going Their Own Way) Crew.

You know, in the past, I've had some reservations about being in a relationship. I'm not gonna lie, there was a point where I was on my he-man-woman-hater shit. I thought the best way to deal with this idea was to treat women like shit and just use them as objects. Then something happened and my perception changed a bit. What happened you might ask? Well, I got into a relationship and realized that I may have been wrong about my thought process. Personally, I can admit and accept when I...


Is Being In A Relationship Difficult?

I've always wondered if being in a relationhip was difficult. Then I got into one and realized and realized, that it really isn't. What makes being a relationship difficult is that one or the other partner isn't 100% fully committed. Is that a bad thing? Not necessarily. But we view it as a bad thing. Honestly, I look at it as a necessary evil. Because once you've decided to be fully committed, a relationship is very simple to be in. It gets tricky when one partner doesn't want to be...

Do What You Gotta Do In This Life

I've never understood the complexities of life. Some days are extremely good and you're on top of the world. Then there are weeks where things seem to always go wrong and you can't catch a break. Why is that? How are we supposed to handle the B.S that comes our way? We all know life isn't fair, but how come some people seem to catch all the right breaks and then there are those who can't catch a break? I have no clue how this podcast will go, but to hell with it, let's discuss shall we?...


Is Casual Sex Really Possible?

My cousin did it again! He stays asking the most pertinent questions. But here we go! My cousin asked me this past Friday, "Is casual sex possible?" Of course my first reaction was to say, "yeah". As I thought about it though, I began to wonder if it really is possible? I mean, we say we can do it, but somehow, some way, someone in that instance becomes attached. So, let us discuss this a bit and see what we an interpret for ourselves. Have an opinion on the matter? Call in at (347)...


A Discussion About An Article Titled, "Why Men Don't Marry".

Maan, the amount of vitriol and hate that was spread along my cousin's Facebook status was astounding! My man posted a simple question and everyone (mostly women) went apeshit about the credibility of the article, the credibility of the research done, shared their personal experiences, etc. It was bad! Hell, even my girlfriend gave me shit about the post simply becuase I agreed with it. So, in today's episode, we will go on to discuss said article and the validity of it's merits. This...


A Discussion About The Perception of Time

Everyday, we are gifted with the blessing of time. How we use that time is depending on what it is we are looking for out of life. Some people use that time to help those in need. Others use their time to pursue a goal, maybe a dream. While there are others who sqander what time they are allotted. Regardless, time is abundant, yet sparse. However you choose to use your time, please do so wisely. If you haven't got the jist, in today's episode, we will be talking about the concept of time....


Happy (Belated) Father's Day! And Some Other Thoughts.

Alrighty folks Father's Day just passed and I didn't get a chance to make an episode about it, so today is that day and episode! I want to talk about the importance of having a father in a child's life and how it is beneficial to everyone involved.

But, truth be told, you can't play both roles. So, let us have an open...


You Can Accomplish Way More Than You Think.

I've been thinking recently about a lot of things that are happening in my life lately and I've come to realize, that we are capable of accomplishing more than what we think we can. I've been astonished by a lot of the results that I've accomplished lately and it made me think that you too can do these things.It doesn't really take a "special" person to do amazing things. It takes an individual that is willing to go out of his/her way to do the extraordinary. Have an opinion on the matter?...


Don't Forget To Stop and Smell The Roses.

Life is pretty crazy as we continue to live. We are so focused on achieving our goals and making our dreams come true, that we forget to look up and see all those who have sacrificed with us.

My Thoughts on Dreams Becoming a Reality.

Yesterday marked my four year anniversary when I made my MMA debut as an amatuer. That is pretty crazy when I think about it. Monday, I was offered a fight for July 14th at the Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh and I could not be more excited about this. On Wednesday, the editor and creator of BeatSelector Magazine offered me a podcast hosting gig for his website podcast series. Of course I accepted, and will be hosting a series of interviews for his podcast as well as doing this one. It's prett...


Exploring The Concepts Of Monogamy, Polygamy, And The New Sexual Revolution?

Ok, so this past weekend, my girlfriend and I stumbled across this show titled, 'Explained". The show only has four episodes, with each episode running at about twenty minutes a piece, but does a great job of summarizing some polarizing topics of today. The four episodes discussed ont he show were, "The Racial Wealth Gap", "Designer DNA", "Monogamy", and lastly, "K-Pop". All of the episodes are worth your time and come highly recommended, but for today's episode, we are going to explore...

Is Love All You Really Need In a Relationship?

Today I wrote an article titled, "Are You Really In Love?" and in it i raised some questions about whether or not we are really in love or are we just in love with the person's convienence to us. It's a fair and interesting question to be asked.we are always told and fed the fact that love will always prevail. But does it really? We are constantly told, that if you love someone, you will do whatever it takes to make it work. I want to question that notion. Because, I don't think love is...


We've Become Weak As A Society. Therefore, We Take Things For Granted.

Today, I had a conversation with one of my students parent. She asked me, "what can my son do to pass his black belt test"? This is a legitimate question and as I was explaining to her what was expected and what her son needs to do, I've come to the conclusion that, ultimately, it's up to her son on how he performs on his belt test. She agreed, and upon my exiting the facility, the thought still lingered and I thought how ungrateful and weak we really are. Now these are just buddening...


Taking Responsibility For Yourself.

Things go wrong in our lives constantly. Whether it be poor choices, things that happen outside of our control, whatever the case may be, we have to remember that we are responsible for our own shit. Regardless of what happens in life, we have to take personal responsibility. It may not be pretty, but in the long run, it is the sure fire way that we can control our lives. Life ain't fair, but if you take control of your life, you have a better chance of scewing the outcome in your favor....
