Acquiring Knowledge of Self

As an emcee and as a socially conscious activist within a system that is meant to maintain its own status quo, I've chosen to travel a path that will be for the betterment of others yet I constantly have to remind myself that I'm still learning each and everyday. In the past I've talked to some people about how I felt like I was lost however I believe that through the actions that I am taking I am finding myself more and more. [ 730 more words. ]

Random Thought

If you follow me on social media, then you've probably seen a couple of my "random thought" moments here and there. These "random thought" moments happen pretty much randomly, just like this blog post which was impulsively written while contemplating a couple of life altering decisions such as, "am I ready to go back to school full time", or, "why am I not where I deserve to be (career wise)"?

Combat

When discovering that I served in Afghanistan I often get asked "did you ever see combat?" At this point I'm assuming it's safe to put aside OPSEC (a military abbreviation for operational security), and I'll briefly share some of my experiences while in Afghanistan. In 2010 from April until December my job in Afghanistan was to perform detainee operations, which meant that the unit I was assigned to was responsible for providing care, custody, and control for detained personnel captured by U.S. [ 394 more words. ]

What's new?

It's been exactly four months since I've last blogged and a lot's happened since then. Whenever I'd find myself inspired to write to you all I'd get sidetracked with writing lyrics or generally just "getting myself out there". One thing that's kept me going all this time has been the acknowledgement and recognition that I've received for the work that I'm doing which is greater than any accolade out there.

Open Mic Series- Mixed Pleasures

Open Mic Series- Mixed Pleasures http://wp.me/p3O78u-5h

Going to open mics is among one of my favorite hobbies in New York City. There are many different types of open mic series that cater to different types of artists. During these open mics, audience members are given the opportunity to perform and can do so by signing up in advance for a time slot. These events are typically focused on performance arts such as poetry, spoken word, music, and/ or comedy. [ 338 more words. ]

New York state of mind http://wp.me/p3O78u-56

Why is it that southerners are known to have a better reputation regarding hospitality than let's say, northerners? Could it be that northerners, such as my fellow New Yorkers, have gotten used to the aggressive city life that we have come to the conclusion that it is a completely "dog eat dog" world... who knows. I believe that there is always room for improvement and for the most part we are all striving to better ourselves yet sometimes we let our ego's get the best of us and we get full of ourselves.

The F.I.L.M. Fund's Third Fundraiser Event of 2014. Our purpose is to
be able to self-sustain an open space for artists to showcase their
talent(s) and skill on the mic. This is going to be an ongoing effort
through 2014 in NYC and Boston.

Our Mission:
The F.I.L.M. Fund is a non-profit organization whose mission is to
inspire leaders to document the current issues facing their community
as a method of raising awareness. We outreach to citizens through a
door-to-door canvassing operation; by gaining a personal trust of
community members and inspiring them to participate in current
community affairs. We visit neighborhoods per district and collect
data concerning the issues that effect that particular area the most
and follow up with a course of action designed by the local community
members as a way to inspire self sustainability in neighborhoods.
F.I.L.M. Fund also visits public schools and provides free training in
either media or leadership development as a way to inform students on
the truth about the school to prison pipeline. Essentially this will
lead to town hall meetings, further documentation of issues through:
PSA (Public Service Announcements) or short films as well as events in
order to actively engage other communities to become the solution they
wish to see in their district.
