Anyone who knows me would probably define me as "immature" among many other things--this doesn't mean to leave comments about what I am!!! But I think I'm more mature than most. Dictionary.com defines mature as "fully developed in body or mind, as a person." Doesn't say much, right? I've always had this discussion with my mom about maturity and she always seems to define me as being "immature." What is this immature?

Maturity isn't a state of age or a state of mind. Maturity, simply put, is "being, acting and thinking appropriately within given conditions" (that's a jk original by the way, no plagiarizing!). We don't always have to act, talk and think like the typical "mature" adults. I remember when I was young and I thought about the 25...

After I broke up with my ex-girlfriend (actually she broke up with me), a few of my friends came up to me and told me they never liked her. I have great friends, right? But seriously, she was a bitch.Even my mom didn't like her! And my mom likes everyone. I guess I'm glad we didn't get married otherwise nobody would hang out with me.

But i started to think whether or not my opinion of her would have changed during the course of our relationship if somebody told me they didn't like her. Although one friend said he didn't quite trust her, which may be the same as "she sucks!" So I started to questionwhether we, as friends, are responsible for telling our friends that we don't like their significant others?I'm sure everyone has a friend that...

Why I Love Linksys:

I love Linksys routers! Really. Everytime I'm walking around with my iPhone in my pocket or I'm at a place with my laptop I always find a new open network called Linksys. Thank god! Seriously, Linksys you are the very reason I am able to access the internet wherever I am. More importantly, thank you to that person who installed that network without any regards to security. By the way, somebody probably stole your identity, credit card info, and everything else you have! Sorry, i didn't do it, though.

Why I Hate Linksys:

The other day I bought a new Linksys wireless router for our new condo downtown. I've probably installed a dozen wireless routers for friends and family and I always seem to have problems. But thething is...

I remember when Facebook first came out, it was 2004 and I was at Boston University, less then 2 miles from where Mark Zuckerberg first launched Facebook.

Let me tangent for a minute, I knew Mark Zuckerberg, yeah, that's my brief moment with fame. I actually attended Harvard University in the summer of 2001. I was his roommate in Hurlbut Hall on the outskirst of campus. We didn't really hang out. Damn me for being "too cool!"

Anyways, back to the point. When Facebook was first released and hit Boston University, I remember waiting for the train with my roommate, Dave Brumaru, and overhearing a brief conversation between two people. As this guy rushed to jump on the train he didn't have enough time to ask for this girl's number, so instead...

I don't think that I can honestly express myferocious hatredfor airlines. Seriously, I hate all those fuckers! and the worst part is that they are soooooo nice when you're at the gate, or checking in, or on the phone with them. But behind the scenes they all suck balls!!! Big balls. Chewbaka balls! that' photo above kind of sums it up!

I can't count how many times I've traveled and somehow been fucked by airlines. This time, I guess you can say, was partially my fault. I just wanted to change my return flight from NYC to Boston. Can't do that without paying $150. Nope! Can't do anything without paying. Not only that but I have to pay $15 to check in my bag. WTF, mate?!?!

Another time i had to change my flight they charged me $200. Weak sauce,...

I don't know about you guys but i love the fact that i can text message. Mostly for the obvious reasons, its quick communication you can use anytime without any even knowing your communicating. Also, it helps to communicate when you don't want to talk on the phone.

Well finally my mom got an SMS plan. Thank god! I dunno about you guys butmy mom calls me at least 3 times a day. Just to see what I'm up to, what I'm doing, etc. Now, though, she just texts me in her broken, terrible text message lingo, "John are you in boston how is your friend mom". did you notice there wasnot a single periodin the message. and she always signs it as "mom" as if i don't know who's sending the message.

Anyway, i feel liberated. No more phone calls bothering me....

A friend once told me that "bitches be shopping" and i laughed. mostly for two reason: first, because that's thefunniestdescription ever, and second because itactuallyis true! But that's not what we're hear to talk about, nope! we're here to talk about (better yet, i talk, you read) about one important set of facts that all PURSE and SHOE LOVING WOMAN should know.

Chanel, originally designed by a french fashion and social revolutionary named Coco Chanel. This women impresses me. why? you ask. It's because my whole life i wonder why any woman could spend $5000 on a purse and $750 on shoes and not feel like a they wasted their money. (i mean, come on! there's people that don't have healthy water or food!). But that's a different topic. Today...

Right now i'm on vacation in a third world country next to a another country that a war is going on in. i will not mention the name of the country i'm in due to the possibility that i may be arrested, sent to the army or killed. you come to understand why in the next few minutes. for this article i will refer to this country as "shizaville".

freedom of speech does not exist in shizaville. this totaliterian regime is quite corrupt. bribery, extortion, and other illegal activities are as common as the mosquitos (and they are everywhere)! not to mention its like 10000 degress with 100% humidity--probably why they are so corrupt.

anyways, back to the topic! for the past few days i've been having ideas, lots of ideas, good ideas, bad ideas, ideas...

following my recent breakup, i start thinking a lot about my past relationship and all the elements included. we loved to go out together to bars and lounges throughout the city and hang out enjoy some drinks and dancing and whatnot.

what i realized, though, was that i introduced her to many of these bars/lounges. i was the one who went out of my way to discover these places and take her there to check them out and enjoy what they had to offer. therefore, these venues, although public, rightfully belong to my particular sphere of interests throughout the city! in other words, since these are "my spots" she has to forfeit her right to attend these places out of respect for me. and vice versa, ill stay clear of the bad clubs she took me to....
