Why You Should go to Urgent Care EVERY Time You Get an Animal Bite

By

The last time I received a dog bite… I got a bad infection.

It is very important that I went to the Urgent Care in Cobble Hill, as when I took my bandaid off my clean looking cut was starting to look yellow under the flap of skin covering it.

The doctor pointed out streaking on my forearm – a red line extending up the vein of my forearm. “That is the infection spreading to the rest of your body,” the doctor informed me.
He used to hook me up to an IV of antibiotics.

Post-millennial Midlife Crisis & Visiting Old College Friends in Pasadena

It’s kind of a special thing to be able to examine our 20s. Meg Jay, a clinical psychologist who specializes in studying people in their 20s, noted in a TED Talk that:
“80 percent of life’s most defining moments take place by age 35…
The first 10 years of a career has an exponential impact on how much money you’re going to earn…
More than half of Americans are married or are living with or dating their future partner by 30.
The brain caps off its second and last growth spurt in your 20s as it rewires itself for adulthood, which means that whatever it is you want to change about yourself, now is the time to change it.
Personality changes more during your 20s than at any other time in life
Female fertility peaks at age 28, and things get tricky after age 35
So your 20s are the time to educate yourself about your body and your options….”

Readjusting to Life – Not Living in A Van & A Raw Till 4 Snack

By

Sometimes in life it is the simple things that count.

Like being able to relax on a couch.

With a hot cup of coffee and fresh produce throughout the day, prepared in a tiny, albeit working, kitchen.

Simple pleasures in Topanga include fresh produce chopped up and a cup of coffee.
Splurging on a cruelty-free, natural, non-GMO, sulfate free, oil free sunscreen from Derma E

Unrestricted to a 7′ by 2′ footprint of a camper van.

I quit the 10 Billion Tour job (I’ll explain later) and am staying with my parents and friends for a couple weeks before heading out to Vegas, and then Thailand for a few weeks.

Crazy Viola Davis’ Oscar Speech

By

Did anyone else think Viola Davis’ Oscar speech was bananas? “Thank you to the Academy. You know, there’s one place that all the people with the greatest potential are gathered. One place and that’s the graveyard. People ask me all the time, what kind of stories do you want to tell, Viola? And I say, exhume those bodies. Exhume those stories.” In its full context, it makes more sense, and is pretty respectable, but woah, what a start to a speech.

Success versus Failure @ Age 31

By

Meaning often comes in taking risks, breaking the mold of what people want us to believe is success.

While I do see the value in having enough saved to protect oneself against health ailments and other life obstacles, I think meaning is about helping others.

It’s about thinking how you can make your mark on this world.

How can you not fall victim to roteness? To not being aware that you are living life?
