Ireland Beer Trip – Day 3 – Wexford, I hardly knew ya’!

Day 3 was pretty chill. This is the day that we left good ‘ole Dublin for greener pastures. We had our bags packed and were ready to board our bus at 8am. That’s where Barry (the bus driver) entered our lives and he’ll be a better man for it, I’m sure. This bus is theContinue reading “Ireland Beer Trip – Day 3 – Wexford, I hardly knew ya’!”

Ha’penny Bridge – Dublin, Ireland

In honor of Valentine’s Day, I snapped a few pictures of the sights at Dublin’s Ha’penny Bridge. Ha’penny Bridge was built in 1816 and crosses over the River Liffey. In years past, the bridge was covered in ‘love locks’. However, Dublin City Council began removing them in 2012 due to maintenance concerns. They asked peopleContinue reading “Ha’penny Bridge – Dublin, Ireland”

On January 21, 2017 Civil Right’s icon, John Lewis, led the charge at the Atlanta March for Social Justice and Women saying, “When you see something that is not right, not fair, not just; you have a moral obligation to say something, to do something.

There have been continuous protests by indigenous people as wellContinue reading “What Is Going On At Standing Rock”

The First Female President Of The United States

Maybe the first female President of the United States has tattoos and a purple streak in her hair. Maybe she lifts her middle finger high when a man tells her to “smile”. Maybe she’s had an abortion, smokes too many cigarettes and takes too many selfies. Maybe she sings in the car to Beyonce andContinue reading “The First Female President Of The United States”

Donald Trump To Be 45th President Of The United States

Donald Trump will be our next President. I didn’t think it was possible. In fact, I was pretty damn cocky. How could I not be? Pundits, pollsters, politicians (REPUBLICAN politicians) all told me that a Donald Trump presidency was not something I had to worry about. Now, it’s a reality that I cannot wrap myContinue reading “Donald Trump To Be 45th President Of The United States”
