How are ya, now?
Me, I could be better. My cousin was recently diagnosed with leukemia and it broke my fucking heart to hear the news. Instead of cursing things I cannot control, I decided to amp up my efforts in helping her find a match for a bone marrow donor. So if you are able and willing, I ask you to consider registering with Be the Match. When you register, they deliver a free swab kit to you and you’ll send it back in the prepaid envelope to the lab. The lab then runs your HLA profile and checks to see if you’re a match to be a donor. It’s a nationwide registry, so you don’t need to be in SoCal to register.
Here’s some stuffs I thought I’d share with ya this week, Ferda.
If the algorithm has buried me on your IG feed, I took a day trip to the canyons with Kuma and it was a rollercoaster. It was my first solo soft-roading adventure and I had a lot of fun practicing how to fly my drone. During the first half of the trail, I was convinced I was doomed. I was either bound to get lost or stuck in the sand like that one time in Utah , mainly because I had no idea what I was doing. Pffffft, only sort of lol
Rest in peace, Aaron Carter. I had no idea what he was going through and it’s fucking tragic how often we are reminded how child actors/celebrities struggle with the burden of the spotlight. Fame comes with such a heavy price and sometimes it doesn’t help when we are so quick to dehumanize them while they crumble in public.
So much same.
It feels like winter is here in SoCal even though we’re technically still in autumn. It got a little stormy and the mountains are starting to open up for snowboarding. YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS!!
Once upon a time, Tinky Winky and Po decided to watch a movie. During an unexpected super tear jerker scene, Tinky Winky told Po, “I’m going to hold my tears so I don’t cry”. Po replied, “Aren’t tears produced by your hormones that trigger your tear ducts?”. Tinky Winky glared and said, “I don’t know, I don’t give a fuck. I’m just going to hold it in.. maybe punch of a wall or something”. At that moment, Tinky Winky and Po looked at each other with blood shot eyes while they both said aloud, “WTF? Is that why people punch walls?”. The moral of story is if you see someone punch a wall, they could probably just use a good hug lol
As someone who enjoys reading, I subscribe to a lot of writer’s newsletters. If it your thing, I highly recommend reading James Clear’s 3-2-1 Thursday.
Here’s a favorite photo i’ve taken since the last spam mail. It sucks that Kuma is not a cuddler, but boy when he gets jelly.. he starts acting brand new.
I usually set these emails to publish on a random day and time, but not today!
Happy 11/11, 11:11!
I hope today is your lucky day.
Until next time,
