Welcome to the Hustlelogs: An Unofficial and Slightly Ridiculous Guideline For Living A Better Life (working title, don’t judge me.)

The purpose behind this blog is to explore the Mind, Body and Spirit to help you lead a happier and more productive existence. The advice is coming from a 25 year-old photographer/graphic designer, hobby-level runner/cyclist and a fat kid at heart, so don’t think these are going to be guaranteed winner chunks of knowledge that will take you on a path to having Trump money. These are simply moments in time that can be seen as ways to look at a circumstance, evaluate and maybe change something in order to work smarter for yourself. These instances are times for Extreme Self Care (ESC as I’ll refer to them) where things could be improved upon by a simple change, or standing your ground to refuse change. Just make sure you’re doing what’s best for you.

I will poke fun at things like the Paleo lifestyle, hipster shoes and people who put kids on leashes, but do NOT think i’m counting them out as things NEVER TO BE DONE. If they work for you, then by all means continue on that path, just know it’s not something I truly subscribe to.

I hope at least one of you will find some usefulness in these bits of information. They’ll be weird, funny, sad, serious or just plain strange, but stick with me, things are guaranteed to at least be fun in the process. 

This is an IKEA. It’s filled with cheap, cookie-cutter, snap and go furniture. It’s all the same, no matter what ridiculous word they try to use to differentiate it. Sure it makes life easy, and your home/dorm/apartment looks relatively well put together, but is it you?
This photo represents the changes i need to make. I need to escape this prefabricated life and start building the life I want to own. So I’m going to start doing more things for myself, begin picking up my camera, and choosing to be happy rather than trying to be satisfied with what’s in front of me. It’s time to be happy again.
Welcome to my journal.
