The Importance of a Mentor

I haven’t written in a while. It’s not because I have nothing to say or share, or even jotted down. Ultimately, I just wonder if it mattered. There’s this constant wonder within myself if anything matters, what I do, how if I share, something if says something, if I don’t say something. Some sort of […]

Fountain Pen

Computers have a unique way of making writing a bit mentally lazy — indulging in a stream of consciousness writing. One doesn’t take the extra few minutes to think about what one is going to write or think about the missing pieces and how they all fit together It is, perhaps, because, we can cut, […]

I Did It For Me

Today marks my 1 year anniversary at Gobbler. It’s odd… I’m in my late twenties and this is only the second job where I have stay for longer than year, the other being at Line 6. But I’m going to tell you a secret… I quit there, three times. I was going to write a […]


I spent past four days in New England. Used Airbnb to find place and lived for several days as a local. There’s just something about going to a place where you know no one… not a soul, and just go about as you are living there. Going to the local artisan coffee shop and people […]

Spare Keys

Yesterday a friend of mine locked himself out of his office and he called me as I have his spare keys. It wasn’t much of a drive or a hassle. I went over and helped him out and then he asked, “Why don’t I have your spare?” It’s odd. I can count on one hand […]


While at dinner with friends last night, Aaron Swartz came up. I won’t go into detail about his life. You can Google him and you can learn much about his life. I did not know him personally but knew of him. Part of me envied him, we are roughly the same age and yet he […]

Little Changes

I’ve been on the internet for a while now and I’ve gone by many screen names and handles, but since 2005, my “real name” has always been Kenn R. It’s weird when I would give out or typed out my blog, because it was much longer and gave out my “real” last name. I was […]

Where was the Pink?

Last month was Breast Cancer Awareness month and for the past few years I have changed the color scheme of the site to pink and written a small post on why we should bring awareness and how to donate, usually to the Susan G. Komen foundation. But things have changed since then. The Susan G. […]

My Machete and I

I burn bridges. I cut of ties with people. In very rare occasions do I pull strings for things or call in favors. I understand the social contract in doing favors and I understand that the social structure is somewhat dependent on it but I don’t use it often. Years ago I burned bridges with […]

Set Up

Last night married friends invited me over for dinner. It’s not uncommon but I knew something was up, the tone in their voice, a gut feeling. They where trying to set me up. It’s not the first time, it won’t be the last time. It’s been a while since I’ve been in a relationship. I […]
