Once, Twice, Three Times A Cheater

I remember the first time I started a blog with the intention of writing down the thoughts that haunted me for some time after my affair had ended.

What’s The Deal With The Pirates In Somalia

Hip-Hop artist K’NAAN explains why Somali pirates operating off the Gulf of Aden are hijacking international ships traveling through on business and pleasure. “Most Somalis will tell you they cannot readily condemn pirates.

Becoming Reacquainted

Saturday night rolled around and I was getting fresh and clean for the night out. L invited me to to a going away party for a friend and I said yes, of course. I drove to L’s house and waited for her and her roommate to finish getting ready. Finally, we headed to her friend’s […]
