So here’s the thing.

In the days leading up to 2011, I finally reached my breaking point.

After taking a step back, I realized that 95% of my creative juices were being drained by way of semi-clever tweets, topical Facebook updates, and nonsensical gchat statuses. Upon this embarrassing discovery, I knew I had two options:

1) Walk into oncoming traffic.
2) Start writing again.

Thankfully, after much deliberation, I picked option 2.

I considered keeping a diary or writing a journal, but when it’s just for my eyes, I get shockingly lazy (write for 2 straight days, get really proud of myself, and take 3 months off…)

I proudly and openly lack talent, have fooled many people into thinking I’m good at many different things (dancing, board games, basketball, bowling, card tricks, babysitting, subtraction). To be completely honest, there are only 7 things I’m quite good at:

1 – taking it there
2 – being from Atlanta
3 – speaking in hyperboles
4 – having talented friends
5 – making lists
6 – “acquiring” possessions
7 – apologizing, then taking it there again

So that’s pretty much what this blog is about.

1 post every day. No more, no less.

I’m going to do this until I finish grad school and then no more.

May 18th, 2012.

That’s exactly 500 Days.

Good talk.

    Good day. My name is Dr. Vibe. I host and produce “The Vibe and Vegas Show” at http://thevibeandvegasshow.wordpress.com/. The “Vibe and Vegas Show” is a podcast where we discuss, debate, share and sometimes laugh about various subjects from a Black Canadian man point of view. Our goal is to stimulate thought and discussion so that Black Canadian men and those that care about them can work, share and grow together. Our show is nominated in two categories (Best International Blog and Best Podcast Series) at this year’s Black Weblog Awards.

    I would like to know if you would be interested in being interviewed for our show. It would provide you with a great opportunity to promote your site. It would also provide us with great content.

    I look forward to your response at your earliest convenience. Thanks for your time and consideration. Best wishes at these year’s awards!!

    God bless, peace, be well and keep the faith,
    Dr. Vibe
