Why Journaling is Used By Mental Health Professionals
There are several well-documented cases of animals adopting lost or abandoned children. The unlikely mothers were canines, primates, felines, birds, and unbelievably, river creatures. Humans discovered living with animals from early childhood displayed heightened senses. There were physical adaptations (e.g., speed, climbing, swimming, walking on all fours, howling, calling, etc.) and the aggression needed to survive in the wild. The small window of time to learn human behavior (speech, mobility, concepts, etc.) closes rapidly.

People Don’t Understand What Irony Actually Is
I’ll give you an example. I went to the beach with a good friend here in Florida. He’s this naturally jacked dude, with bizarre genetics that make him look like a bodybuilder after doing three pushups. He also has pale skin and burns as easily as an Irish Albino.

Introduction to a REAL NINJA: From Podcast to Writing
Initially; I began my Facebook page, “WNY Johnny”, as a Podcast page. Between 2019 and 2021; I became really intrigued with Podcast; as a fan to listen, and then as a Creator. Formerly; when I was working Security downtown at the Credit Union in my hometown. The Branch Manager of the Credit Union allowed for the Security Guards to wear ear buds; as long as one ear was free to listen to the bank: its patrons, and observe the site entirely. It was contract Security; it was kind of him; considering that it was against both my Security companies’ policy, and his banks policy for the Guards to even consider entertaining electronics while on duty; but he was half Cuban, and I was a real nigga; so it was lit. For the first couple of weeks into the gig; I listened to mostly music, Hip-Hop predominantly; I would bounce around from genre to genre; I’m no stranger to R&B and Pop, rock, and all good music in between.
What I learned from reading Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert
Sometimes contradictions are contradictory at all. I started reading Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert near the end of 2022. I was in-between jobs and in general having a bit of a “spiritual” moment. Big Magic is motivational. Its audience appeal caters towards people who cannot abstain from doing creative work but have jobs doing other things. It’s a little weird. But, I was here for it.

WNY Johnny: The Uber Driver (Rough Draft Script)
The rain fell freely from the grey sky on a cool October morning. A Blue 2017 Ford Fusion arrived at the apartment door within the Townhouse complex. A Jack-O-Lantern sat next to the concrete steps. The company logo “Uber” lit in neon on the dash facing the road. Johnny exited the apartment door, hoodie on head; holding a black messenger bag which stored his laptop computer for work; wrapped around one shoulder, a brown backpack wrapped around the other, and a thermos of coffee in hand. He locked the apartment door with his freehand, walked down the steps, opened the car door, tossed his bags in the back seat, and entered the Uber. Johnny greeted the Uber driver and began to settle. The Driver was a young Woman.

The Power of Repetition
Three to five times each week, I run up a trail called the Laguna Bowl. It starts on the inland edge of the 133 leading into Laguna Beach, right next to the tennis courts and the Pageant of the Masters. The Bowl is nearly two miles long and climbs nearly 1,000 feet. Once I get to the top, there are a dozen different routes I could take. If I wanted to, I could run a 50k from my back door and not repeat myself.
Do you consider Zodiac Signs when Dating?
I never gave Zodiac signs much thought until last year; I’m going to keep it real. I’m 33 going on 34 this year. Now that I have researched the topic a little bit about Astrology; I’m beginning to feel that it holds a bit of truth, and or can be acknowledged on a foundational and communicative basis; not an “end all be all” way to identify a person. We all have similar and different ways to communicate; rather through friendship, and or romance. We all have social norms, cultural differences, and quirks that we intentionally and unintentionally communicate to the open world. Once I began to research my own Zodiac sign, and communication style; and further researching the signs to those around me; my connections with the outside world began to make more sense to me.
