human rights. How to find happiness in an insane world.What I
ultimately want to do with the rest of my life. How to improve
writing with out losing its edge.What I can do to make a
in the future that is socially relevant. This time around finding
partner that can appreciate my vision and wants to be apart of
even if it means packing up and moving to another country to try
make a difference and to be happy.I have seemed to be

might shock some people.
Realize that sometimes I think I am doing stand up comedy.
