I drove to Philly this morning to go to my favorite Vietnamese Pho place on Washington Ave, but stupid me forgot that parking is extremely limited at these places on Sunday mornings. I wasn’t men...


Yesterday my friend messaged me for the first time since June. She got mad at something I said to her and stopped talking to me. I played along by not messaging her either which basically created...


During the ride home last night I didn’t feel like I was too impaired from alcohol to drive, but my friend’s real-time analysis of how I was driving would say otherwise: “You’re bouncing around t...


A lot of people think that they are so good at their job and have such a vital role at work that the place would never last without them. I have a more modest and what I think is a more realistic...


If you’re actually serious about taking a break from alcohol you’re better off just doing it and never mentioning it to anyone. You might try to make the declaration that you’re refraining from a...


I think it’s great that I’m addicted to self-improvement books. Every day I catch myself using something I learned from one these books and it’s great to be able to actually notice the positive i...


I took a shower tonight with the thinnest sliver of bar soap ever. Surprisingly I don’t feel like I shortchanged myself in terms of shower-quality. I was able to make sufficient suds and I still ...


I woke up this morning expecting to be hungover, but instead I felt fine. I thought to myself “This is weird, I already planned my entire day around being hungover.” It was 6:00am and I couldn’t...

Breaking Character in What's Happening

When you meet new people and they ask you “What do you like to be called?” I usually answer with: “Anything that starts with a C-H sound.” My name is Charles but there seems to be endless nicknam...

Perpetually Drunk in What's Happening

A few Thanksgivings ago (2016) I left the country and went to Tokyo, Japan to spend the holiday. I actually made plans to meet with a pen-pal there that I was corresponding through snail mail wit...

Leaf Skydiving in What's Happening

It’s morning. Only the most stubborn leaves are left hanging on the tree out front of my house right now. The rest of the limbs are completely bare. The base of the tree is too far off to the sid...

Small Talk in What's Happening

I swear my communication skills range from top ranking salesman to borderline autistic sometimes. I’m outside blowing the leaves and I see my neighbor come out. I wanted to compliment his new si...

Next week in What's Happening

My roommate walked out of the bathroom tonight and under his breath he said “This hand soap in here sucks.” He was talking about the Mrs. Meyers lemon scented soap that I bought. I was slightly ...

Week Six in What's Happening

It’s week six of orientation training at my new job. One of the older guys in my hiring class was trying to make fun of me and someone else today for discussing our carbohydrate intake. He jumped...

Meds in What's Happening

A lot of people take pride in the fact that they don’t ever use medicine. Sometimes you will hear someone say things like “I don’t even take aspirin for a headache.” (Weird flex, but ok.) I’m the...

Foot Geometry in What's Happening

I was really convinced that my feet were super wide for the longest time, but recently I had the width of my foot measured by a professional and he said that it’s not much wider than a normal foo...

More Purpose in What's Happening

Sound is so much crispier in the the fall season. The cold air seems to chauffeur noises right to your ear drum. Things you normally don’t notice stand out more, like the car door latching when y...

Sick & Hungover in What's Happening

It feels like everything inside my sinuses solidified while I was sleeping. I felt a sneeze coming on earlier and I started to panic. I thought: With my sinuses plugged up like this where is thi...

Two Different Mes in What's Happening

I don’t think coming back to my house for the weekend is going to work for me long term. It’s not entirely a logistics issue. I don’t mind the drive or anything like that. It just seems pointles...

Impulse buy in What's Happening

I bought a cellular iPad today because I thought I needed one in my life. Now that I have it I realize how much I probably don’t need it. It’s just like having a giant version of my phone. I’m ...

Uninterested in What's Happening

As I mentioned in a couple of my more recent entries: getting back to my gym routine and better eating habits has affected my life in a positive way over the past few weeks. Even with feeling be...

Let's Weekend in What's Happening

I’m back home for the weekend and wanting to write a nice entry to document my week, but I’ve been struggling to get my thoughts to muster. My brain feels like the egg in the This is your brain o...


I’m bringing a couch with me on my way back to my apartment in North Jersey tonight. It will be nice to have a place to sit down and read. I have a spare IKEA Ektorp couch that I don’t need anym...
