I'm sure it's said all time, but I just want to put my feet down all parts of this world I can
In 2008, I made a decision to travel as much as I can, as often as I can, for as long as I can. I have no good rhyme or reason as to why I stopped traveling in the first place. Maybe it is the same reason I never made that big move across the Atlantic, but whatever the reason was, I stopped and I was the one who lost for it.
I got to a point where being still was killing me from the inside out. So I booked my first trip, and right after another, and by the third booking, it got to where I was booking every enticing trip that crossed my path. Iâ

Music, Movies, and Books
Movies were and in some ways probably still are my life, but I'll put it like this, every movie I've ever saw holds a significantly emotional place in my heart. Whether it's fear of the thought of ever having to sit through it again, or joyous jubilation at the tingle I got while watching what in hip hop they call the break (that moment in the record that's better than any other, the one you want to extend for hours and play over and over). I have a special appreciation for those movies that after seeing inspired my personality, style, and pursuit of excellence, and knowledge of self. Comedies, documentaries, porn with chemistry, action, romance (got a thing for English romantic comedies, a bit wittier in my view), suspense (especially the ones where I can't actually figure out the end in the first 30 mins and the ending actually still make sense), Biopics, they all get play in my realm of visual reality.
Bob Marley's "Redemption Song" takes me to Haiti, then brings me to tears everytime i hear it. Black Star's "Brown skin lady" makes me leave my home each and every day in search of her. Mr. Telephone man by New Edition makes me go to a lonely, uncomfortable, self-conscious place, that no fly suit or shades can ever truly cover up. Talib Kweli's "Get by" speaks to the days of my life. ke-m pa sote by Boukman Eksperyans doesn't allow me to ever give up. Outkast's "So fresh, So clean" Makes me look in the mirror one last time, before i walk out the door. Marvin Gaye's "what's going on" makes me talk to every young person willing to listen, and even those who aren't willing to listen. And finally, Public Enemy's "fight the power", well that one is self explanatory
