Hitting a fat major writer’s block

You know what’s tough? I’ve been trying to write this story since February but I have been coming up empty. I think the problem is that I have the idea of what I want to write about but the character I’ve created doesn’t excite me. In fact, the character is not that compelling. I want to make the character be so heartbreaking yet so relateable. I don’t have that.

And the longer I wait, the harder it is to convince myself that I have a good story. I may need to change the direction. I might need to change the background. I might need to start over.

In the meantime, I still want to keep one aspect of this character and somehow infuse this inspiration into it. Listen and love it.

Warriors basketball: A passion that never goes away


A story of my journey as a Warriors fan. Great read.

Originally posted on But at the end of the day...:

Been a Warriors fan through these three eras.

A trip down memory lane for me as a Warriors fan. 

I remember I was in first grade and I saw the Warriors on TV. I didn’t know much about basketball, I just liked it. I would try to imitate what I saw on TV to the playground. I even remember the first ever basket I made on the playground I thought that I could one day match what the Warriors did. It was so easy to be impressed by this Warriors team. Little did I know that they were embarking on a playoff drought. But they were the first team I watched. The first team I followed. I fell in love with basketball because of them. And I never left.

It’s not easy being a Warriors fan. As I grew older, my frustrations would grow more and more with the team…

#NationalSiblingsDay is a myth

Why does this day exist? Why do people who have a brother or sister deem it necessary to have a day dedicated to that fact? What about those who don’t have siblings? Do they have an official day? Of course not.

This day is a myth. It doesn’t exist. It’s a figment of the imagination. It’s for the insecurities of those who have siblings and can’t handle the real world like only-children like myself.

What a weird day for odd folks. They’ll make a holiday out of anything that has no significance.

I won a prize because I was one of five people who commented first

See that post? I was one of the five to post a comment. I just wrote “Me plz” in the comment. I knew that me being quick was the key to the whole thing so I didn’t even bother spelling correctly. I was contacted and now I await my prize!

Happy Easter! Jesus lives!!!

You know, I always share the above video and it still means a lot to me. The whole point of Easter is the resurrection. As much as it was great to have Jesus come to earth, do miracles, preach and even die on the cross, none of it meant anything until he was risen from the dead. We as a people were so broken that we needed a resurrected Jesus. Not just a savior who would come down and do good, but we needed a savior to sacrifice and conquer death.

I like the above video because it illustrates that we needed a resurrected Jesus. The finality of His mission here was to be raised from the dead. That’s what makes this entire faith work. We believe of the resurrection and the new life it gives us. With that, we are made new in Him.

This is what we celebrate. We celebrate the fulfillment of the promise. The resurrection saved us. We are no longer slaves to our own death because Jesus conquered it. In Him, we are alive.

Happy Easter!
