Interrupted

I want the world to stop. To remain as she last saw it. To hover, unchanged, between what was and what could have been. I need back all those minutes with her, To enjoy the booming laughter; The lovely smile that always grew wider and brighter when I entered the room. A part of me […]

Zoom, Zoom, Zoom

Weddings. Funerals. Baby showers. Meetings. Everything became virtual overnight. The rules of etiquette transmuted to the small screen. There were no excuses to skip events. No other means to maintain intimacy in a world ordered to stay at home. Mask mandates and reopening phases stood between the life we had and the life we led. […]

Me la paso mirando atrás para poder predecir el futuro, para recrear los caminos al éxito y, en ocasiones, ajustar expectativas. Nunca he podido verle el valor a no utilizar la data existente para tomar impulso, pero […]

The Queen’s Castles, A Poem

Challenging for Challenging’s Sake

Unless you are a teenager testing boundaries to discover your path, or a person on a journey of self discovery in which all the correct answers were revealed to you by the gods themselves, stop challenging others just for kicks. Don’t contest because they don’t fit your mold of what an Anime fan should be […]

Putting Things into Perspective

Tuesday, July 10 at 5:00 PM. The basement parking lot is eerily quiet, mostly empty except for a few cars and my light blue SUV, a short walk across the way. My steady steps echo off the walls, sending me into a soothing hypnotic trance. 👟👟👟 Random thoughts quickly flood my mind as the safe […]

Woop woop! Can you believe it? In less than a few months I have made over 670 friends on IG. 😱 This is an amazing feat for this very shy, bossy and introverted INTJ.

Zach’s Gotcha Day: 3rd Anniversary!

Can you believe it? It’s been three years since I found a foster family, which knew early on I was a keeper. Must have been my devilish charm and love taps. He he. I’m forever grateful that these two enginerds – engineers + nerds – decided to get a chance on me. I’m doing my […]

Zach, The Introverted Dog Hits 100 Insta Followers

Wow! Let me tell you about how much more effective the follow for follow philosophy is when growing a brand on Instagram. Before mid September, we barely had 50 followers. Two weeks after dumping the 0 follows approach, we are getting closer to reaching 200! That’s phenomenal. 😎 I’m not sure who devised the methodology but […]
