960If you’ve been asleep this semester I would highly suggest some “Post Mid-Term Extra Credit Work”. Your professor won’t give a damn but you’ve done something for the audiophile in your life.

The Answer is No


“This isn’t about being an aloof artist (which you can’t afford to be). This isn’t about being the entrepreneur who checks out from all the relationships you have (which is suicide). This is about rejecting those who want your physical presence in order to pour into those who need your emotional presence.

Because nobody is going to give you time to create.”

My home has become the latest focus of my creativity these days. I’ve minimized my possessions and refocused my energy on doing what makes me content in that moment. For more photos of my home follow @nerdsinluxury on Instagram or hashtag #nil_home.



It’s simple they say: “Eat right, exercise and rest.”

We’ve all heard these suggestions to keep out body in our ideal shape. But what about our skin? How do we keep our largest organ healthy?  I’ve body buttered, I’ve exfoliated, I’ve bathed in coconut oil. I drink a gallon of water everyday, I rarely drink diet sodas or juice. I’ve done this all in the hopes of achieving clear, healthy skin from head to toe.

Not only am I working on the look of my skin but also the definition of my body. I’ve recently started getting  chiropractic adjustments as well as practicing Yoga for 30-45 minutes a day. My body is grateful for it. I’m witnessing one of the best changes of my life at 31.

I feel better about myself than I have in a lifetime.

Below is my current body skin care regime. I’ve found the Shea Moisture brand to live up to its awesome reputation. It’s high quality without breaking the bank. I look forward to the continued results.



The Body Regime

Wash: Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Body Wash

Oil:  Shea Moisture Argan Oil & Raw Shea Body Oil

Post: Shea Moisture Honey & Black Seed Skin Healing Elixir with  Honey & Black See After Shave

Remember: Pat, don’t rub your skin dry. Oil your skin as soon as you’re out of the shower/bath. Water is your friend and don’t be afraid of adding in flavor enhancers to keep you sipping though out the day.

For years I lived an uneventful existence. I wasn’t happy. I wasn’t unhappy either. I was just sort of stuck.

I had a good career, earned lots of money, and I had great friends and a loving family. You would think that this doesn’t sound too bad, but I felt unfulfilled and unmotivated. I repeatedly lived each day like the one before.

I looked around me and saw that everybody within my own circle of friends, relatives, and immediate family were no different. They too seemed stuck. They seemed unmotivated—like they were living their lives on automatic pilot.

I began to question why this was. Why do so many people just accept this pattern as normal, as if this is the way it is supposed to be?

I read hundreds of books on philosophy, psychology, and spirituality. I continued with this for a couple of years until I gradually I began to see things with greater clarity. I began to wake up. Then one day, out of the blue it just hit me, like a ton of bricks.

The key to unlocking my prison door was not contained in any books I read (although they did help me somewhat). It was in my ability to accept what “is” in this moment. So I now I make that choice.
