Lack of sleep and a lack of a routine have been hurting me. Life has hurt me really, but I can’t cope when I have nothing to do. So I made a little routine for myself. It’s been a few months since I’ve had a routine, but that was mainly – go to dialysis, try […]Read more "Corona Log 04.19.2020"
Man, Animal Crossing ate up a lot of my life. But I’m back to a downswing. I’m just so tired of having the threat of death hanging over my head. And the problem is, this threat doesn’t go away without a vaccine. I can’t risk going outside even when cases are down and society starts […]Read more "Corona Log 04/16/2020"
So things have taken a more positive turn, mostly because I’m staying indoors. My health is suffering for it, but I’m going to strategize on ways to combat that.

I’ve derailed myself a lot of times in my 35 years of life. I’ve let things stop me plenty of times. I was […]Read more "The Mission Statement: Alpha Version"

16 years. Half a lifetime practically for me. I was 17, so my whole adult life is post 9/11. It’s not like I don’t remember what life was like before 9/11, that’s silly and overdramatic, which I’ve been accused of being. Repeatedly. And it’s true. Mostly. Coming back to the city from being in […]Read more "Raph Remembers: 9/11/2001"
NXT Takeover ended about 3 hours ago, and I’m still coming off the high. It was my first major PPV-level event ever, mostly I’ve done WWE House Shows and EVOLVE events… I left NYC for 3 years and it wasn’t easy getting to events where I lived, and before Barclay’s, WWE rarely ran NYC except […]Read more "Raph Reviews: NXT Takeover Brooklyn III (my first PPV)"
