For those new to me, allow me to myself!

I'm a 49yr old dude, in the Lebowski line of dudes, who likes to live stream in the Twitch "Just Chatting" section. I focus on kindness, mental health, good discussions, eating out, going on local adventures, and every Sunday my girlfriend and I do a cooking stream!

Aside from that, I've got a blog that's about all sorts of things like photography, mental health, my life, and THE FEDIVERSE!

And Hi!

When challenging someone's perspective stop and ask yourself these questions...

1) What do I understand about the others perspective?
2) What do I understand about my own perspective?
3) Could I be wrong?
4) What do I want the other to understand about my perspective?
5) What do I want the other to understand about their own perspective?

If you find yourself skipping the first three, you're not really trying to have a discussion and may want to check your ego.

"If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present"

-- Lao Tzu

Who is Lebron James Charles? Is he that basketball player who makes Youtube makeup videos?

We need to remember there is a difference between a people and it's government. Not all Asians are Chinese and not all Chinese agree with the Chinese government.

Also, stop supporting businesses that prefer money over freedom. There's nothing wrong with doing business with China as long as it doesn't compromise an individuals basic human rights. When a company restricts free speech in order to not upset China, they are essentially choosing the side of the oppressor.

Two sad predictions...

Anti Chinese sentiments will escalate over the next 5-10 years resulting in an increased amount of violence and racism towards Asians in the U.S.

An economic war is coming. It's casualties wont be bloodied and disfigured on the battle field. It will be desperate Americans trying to find a home or a job and giving up their freedoms out of desperation. China is buying up our homes and businesses. There's no need to bomb a home you already own.

If you've never enjoyed the pleasure of a spamasubi then why do you even live?

Sometimes I choose to remain ignorant because the weight of my sorrow is too much to bare.

I'm an hour and a half into El Camino the Breaking Bad movie on Netflix and it's like they tried to cram all of the drama from all of the seasons into two hours.

If your day didn't have a dancing bear in front of a macaroon shop then I don't know why you even bother?

Today's the day you stop putting off that thing you've been wanting to do. Let me know how it goes! You got this! πŸ‘

In 12 hours time I will be in heaven with a bowl of pho.

The older I get the less I'm convinced of reality.
