Leave of Absence Recap / Back At School

I haven't updated this in a while. I was going to make a huge "Leave of Absence" blog post but if you want to see the stuff that I did you can just scroll down on this blog or read my Twitter.

The last thing I posted was my Ryan Holiday interview. Here's the writing I've published since:

VICE
Thought Catalog
I also have my debut mixtape coming out this Friday, 10/17. It's titled "Heartbreak Mane," performed by my rap alter-ego, Exzackly. I made "Heartbreak Mane" with my friend Ziggy. It is a collection of 7 songs, they all mean a lot to me. If I had to sum up my feelings of the past 6 months, I don't have to, because they are already all in this mixtape. Below is the track listing. You can listen to the first single off of the mixtape, "Celebrated," here. I'll post the link to the full mixtape when it's released.


In early September, I joined on as a Partner at Rapchat. Rapchat is a hip-hop iPhone app that allows one to rap to beats and send them to their friends. The app has been getting a lot of press (Huffington Post, Fox News, Product Hunt, etc), it's dope. Download it by searching "Rapchat" at the App Store.

I also left LightHouse Ohio. I will be helping them out in a consulting role from now on.

I've been having insanely bad depression lately. It's hard for me to get out of bed most days, today I almost missed a midterm. I don't know, just seems like something worth writing about. The only thing that makes me feel better is making stuff...I think, in the future, I'm going to continue focusing way more on writing than I have, even though writing is, at this point in my life, already a huge commitment for me.

Unsure how to maintain this blog...you should just follow my Twitter if you read this ever. My Twitter is updated way more frequently. I'll have a new website at one point, it might take a couple months though.

I don't know.
