RSI: To Just Function is a Problem

RSI: To Just Function is a Problem

Though Self Improvement is intrinsic to the journey, I have a problem with how we’re expected to just function. I’m sitting in my dining room, my music playing and my roommate testing his Magic deck. With my fingers on the keyboard, I’m typing words while my entire life of decisions swirl around in my head. I’ve already started, deleted, and restarted thrice. I’ve settled on this topic because I believe that this statement is a universally relatable fact. See, I’ve been calculating things like hours and dollars a lot lately; asking the ever important question: “What is the best use of Read more »

WDDIJ Reflection

WDDIJ Reflection

Bet you thought I was gone for good? Happy 2 year anniversary to Words Don’t Do it Justice. I came back for this special occasion just to share with you all some thoughts. It was a wild ride writing for WDDIJ, even if I wasn’t around the longest or anything – it gave me an outlet to express my ideas and opinions to an audience, something I had never really had before. It proved to me that I could actually go out there and put my thoughts into writing and that people would actually give a damn as to what Read more »

White Privilege

White Privilege

White Privilege Right. I’m probably going to get alot of hate for this one, but I can’t be the only person annoyed by this. Recently I’m seeing a pretty interesting trend involving alot of pretty little blond haired blue eyed white girls asking if someone has ever heard of ‘white privilege’. I’m not saying it doesn’t exist, white privilege does exist, and choosing not to talk about it constantly doesn’t mean that I am trying to sweep it under the rug — I just don’t see the point in talking about it as a white person. See, the problem I Read more »

The Letter Series: Dear White People…

The Letter Series: Dear White People…

I don’t feel sorry for you. I know that you are not responsible for what your ancestors did. I know that you are probably good people who just want to live life and enjoy your personal pursuits of happiness. You are on the other hand responsible for how you act and fail to act now. You are responsible for the injustices that are allowed to continue now. Your freedom to move on with your life unaffected and oblivious to your neighbor’s struggle comes at a very high price that you will never be required to pay… because it has already Read more »

Notes From Your Favorite Super Villian: Your Justice is SHIT!

Notes From Your Favorite Super Villian: Your Justice is SHIT!

Let’s get our minds right and set the mood really quick. Pick your poison folks   You pick up what I’m laying down? Good Let’s go.   This JD behind my name doesn’t stop me from saying these words. Your justice is SHIT! You’ve been fed lies from everyone who says the system works. It doesn’t Never really has if you think about it. Rich white landowners have never wanted to pay taxes and so they decided to send poor folks to die fighting England to make America. Prohibition proved that any crisis can let a government seize far more Read more »

Weddings, Reunions, Dental vists, and SHAKE UPS!

Weddings, Reunions, Dental vists, and SHAKE UPS!

So you may have noticed someone has been missing a lot lately. You may have even noticed when he goes missing he doesn’t always explain why. Well…yeah no real explanation, sorry for that.   In other news I have been gone meeting old friends, getting massive dental work, and being best man in a wedding. Shout out to Superfans Chris and Ania Moncrief(aka Superman and Lois Lane) who celebrated their love in the classiest of weddings this past weekend.   But that Shakeup word is here again for good reason.    Things are about to get interesting. Not only has Read more »

White Knights, Rejection, and Internet Movements

White Knights, Rejection, and Internet Movements

THE Ruthless Wonder on a Thursday? …Yep And before we get into it. Rest In Peace to Maya Angelou. There are tons of poets I know who grew up loving her work. She was one of the early impacts on my writing style, and I know very few women who didn’t at some point quote Phenomenal Woman like it was scripture. So you’re probably watching that thinking I’m going to make some point. I’m not. Just check out her videos. Seriously. Especially if you’re even slightly geeky.   Now let’s get into things. I get odd writer’s block from time Read more »
