“Go %&*@ Yourself”

Dedicated to my nephew, Gabriel. Thank you for your patience.  In the short years that I have been an adult in this life, I have noticed that it is not uncommon to see people you utterly dislike so much that you just wish that they would stop breathing. This is hyperbolic speaking of course, but it is still true, for…

“Be Yourself, Like Everyone Else”

Note: This is going to be my 30th Blog so I wanted to do something special. I really was hoping to have a positive message for this entry but I (SPOILER ALERT) managed to end with a pessimistic message.

Racism Matters: A Critique on the Incessant Existence of Prejudice in the United States

Dedicated to Dr. Malachi Crawford, Andre Rodriguez, Raymond Ramirez, Jabril Newton, Kyle Nash, and of course my number one fan, Emily Torres. This essay is long overdue.   There is no proper way to start this essay.

Capital Punishment: A Double-Edged Sword

This was a paper I wrote at the age of 18 for my American Government class. I really dived into working on this paper and had a lot of help editing it from my good friend Jorge and my brother-in-law, Raymond. It was after this paper that I realized I loved writing and doing research and now, I share it…

Explosive Decisions: The Use of the Atomic Bomb in World War II

I wrote this paper 3 years ago for a class I took on Chinese and Japanese History (19 years old) and submitted it recently for a World Wars Conference at University of Houston-Downtown. Personally, I have grown as a writer and am disappointed with this essay as I could have done a lot better, but it got me admitted into…

Messiah Complex: A Blog about My Heroes

For those that don’t know the people I am talking about in this blog: please google them or none of this will make sense to you because I probably won’t go into too much detail. I’m writing a blog, not a biography.  Russell Brand released a Stand-Up special a couple years ago called “Messiah Complex”. The main highlight of the…
