Today was Opening Day. Baseball is back. I made Chicago Style Hotdogs. Vegan for me, Nathans for Jaimie and my dad.  

I can’t believe it’s baseball season again. Does anyone else feel time moving at warp speed? I’ve always known that Time moves quickly, but the past yea...

Then there were two. 

The ex-teacher had her last day of radiation on Monday. She brought in baklava for the group. They were delicious, but I could only eat one bite because I could feel my blood sugar bubbling like a volcano.

I voted today. There is a special election to decide my state Senate seat. To say the voting process was easy would be an understatement. There was literally no one there. The parking lot was completely empty. I thought I was in the wrong place until I saw a sign that...

They play music in the radiation room. As I’m on the machine, hands above my head, looking at the fake painted skyline, tunes are emanating from the speakers above. It’s a different station every day. On Friday they were playing Maroon Five. Which felt right. Few thing...

While in bed last night I was scrolling through twitter. Because I think problems of the world to be the last thing I should see before falling asleep. Gives me things to dream about. 

One of the items in my feed was a link for this comic I used to do shows with in New...

Radiation treatment is strange. I’m on this table for ten minutes and then they’re like, “See you tomorrow.” By 7:30am I’m halfway through a Blonde Roast having already completed major treatment for the day. 

And it feels like nothing is happening. The machine barely ev...

White people. 

Is there anything we can’t ruin? 

Please pardon me, I’m in a bit of a rage black out. Here I’ve been wasting my white privilege on sitting in Starbucks without making a purchase when I should have been committing treason and lying my way into Yale. 

This mo...

I had my first out of body experience as a nine year old boy. It happened at Bob Jones University. 

Bob Jones University is an extremely conservative Christian college about ten minutes from my parent’s house. We were there on a field trip. We were there to go to the pl...
