Slam Poem: While You Were in College

In honor of my four-year anniversary of working online, I proudly present the following slam poem.

Please read it with the stereotypical slam poetry cadence.


While you were in college

I was online

Learning my own way

While you were being taught

I taught myself

Paying my own way

While you were writing essays

I was doing the same

To support freedom

While you were stressing finals

I was stressing deadlines

And nothing more


While you were in college

I traveled the world

My laptop became gold

While you were struggling

I was busy hustling

Landing new clients

While you were institutionalized

I created my own

Online university

While you were studying theory

I was learning reality

From Fortune 500 businesses


While you were graduating

I was hiring you

If you have relevant work experience.

What Do We Do With Visions?

What Do We Do With Visions?

Yesterday I described a traumatic experience. I’m still reeling from it, but the fear that made it so traumatic has subsided (with some exception). After the anxiety paralysis, I spent a few days trying to achieve a normal state of consciousness. This included meditation, music and chain smoking. It all helped a little, but eventuallyContinue Reading

Nevermind About the Camper

Nevermind About the Camper

I recently had a traumatic experience – known poorly as anxiety paralysis – which happened in the camper. As a result, I can’t live there anymore. After much reflection and soul searching, I decided to stay living in Phoenix and get an apartment. I call it ‘normalling’ and it’s bound to be filled with nonstopContinue Reading
