Balancing Act

Being a high-powered criminal attorney in Los Angeles, with a penchant for hang gliding, skiing, entertaining, and providing handmade socks to needy children across the world.... Yeah, right.  But it feels like that sometimes. Look, my life is not hard.  I don't have a stressful job.  I'm not required to clock in 80 hour work... Continue Reading →


Ciao, Chicken Nuggets

On occasion I will bring our 5-year old foster daughter to McDonald's for a Happy Meal.  She's a good kid; she deserves the treat once in a while.  It's not ideal, but it's a great way to get her some fruit, protein, and a horiffically-assembled plastic toy. Several months ago, not only would I have... Continue Reading →

Sean the Scrooge

I am the absolute worst when it comes to Christmas. I admit this freely. Why? Because it's true.  Just as the moon revolves around the Earth, just as Taylor Swift will remain forever popular, just as a five-year old will need something the moment you sit down....I will always be the worst when it comes...

Peak Form

There's irony in that blog title.  What my hike today taught me was that I am not, in fact, in peak form. But that's ok.  I wasn't expecting it to be easy. Daley Ranch is a conservation area in northeast Escondido, just near Dixon Lake.  It's beautiful, vast, and surprisingly easy to get to, considering... Continue Reading →

Optimism > Pessimism

I'm really good at recognizing what I don't have as opposed to what I do have.  I'm not sure if this is a skill I can hone into a paying gig, or if I should change it and try to better myself in some way. Okay, fine, I'll change it so I can f***ing better... Continue Reading →

A Melting Pot: Ingredients Differ

As I dive deeper into this burgeoning interest of politics - both local and national - I find myself thinking about an issue that has bothered for some time.  Even before the current election.  Even before the last several elections, to be honest. Presidential candidates offer several of the same promises that Americans like to... Continue Reading →

I Am Running For Office

I got you to read it, didn't I?!?! Okay, it was a sneaky thing to do.  BUT...the title of this post does hold relevance, so if you bear with me, I'll elaborate more after I say what I have to say. It's been a week and two days since the election.  A week and two... Continue Reading →

Where Do I Put This Fire?

What god damned difference can I make? This, I'm sure, is what millions of people are asking themselves after this disastrous election.  Yes, I said disastrous, because that's exactly what it is: DISASTROUS. Am I being melodramatic?  Fine.  This is one of the rare instances you can pigeonhole me as a Stereotypical Gay Man overreacting... Continue Reading →
