My childhood was amazing. I had a loving family. Friends. A good education. I was given every opportunity to succeed. My parents were great at giving me lessons in a lot of the important stuff. But along the way, I missed out on some fundamental information. And here I am today. Twenty-nine years old, and … More I learned how to be a real man from a bunch of girls.
I got a free 30-day trial of Ableton Live 9 Suite, which is a music production program. You can record, mix and master fairly professional sounding songs from one program. It costs $750 to buy and I was considering getting it, so I gave myself a challenge: If I can get a decent sounding song … More I am not a musician.
I make my living as a massage therapist. It’s one of the few areas of my life where I can confidently say that I am a trained professional. I’m good at it.

It was a Friday. September 30, 2011, to be exact. I had just finished my last class for the week. I was about to go to my girlfriend’s house to help her pack. We were officially moving in together.
