The Journey

They say sometimes you meet people for a season, a reason, or a lifetime.

I’m a stark individualist, though everyone I meet has influenced me,

Whether it be positively or negatively.

I used to think being self-contained and uninfluenced by people made me strong,

Now I see that I learn who I am through other people,

And other people see their own reflection in me.

Everything in life is impermanent, even love,

Don’t believe the fairytale of a happily ever after.

Love may last days, weeks, months, or till death do us part. read more

My Recent & Upcoming Stand-Up Comedy Performances

I started doing stand-up comedy in the Fall of 2015 after I met some new friends who invited me to go to an open mic night. It went surprisingly well for my first time, and I loved it so I continued. Fast forward to July 2016, I opened for Rich Carucci on July 8th at the Stanhope House in Stanhope, NJ. You can view my set for that show here  Then on October 21st, opened for Rich Vos, also at the Stanhope House. These two shows were my 1st and 2nd time being the opening comedian for a show.

I’ll be performing in the Mickey “Who?” Comedy Showcase at the Randolph Performing Arts Center, 8:00pm November 12th. The entry costs $10. Come out, it’ll be a fun time! read more

Ghost Story IV: House in Jefferson

I moved back into my old house in Jefferson, NJ in July 2016. Part of the house was crushed by a gigantic tree during Hurricane Sandy. It took only a year for the house to be repair, but 3 years of jostling with the insurance company to finish paying the carpenter, plumber, electrician, and other repairmen.

This house was built in 1804, so it is very old. The house held many different purposes over the years including: a tea house, girl scout camp house, meeting house, and of course housing regular home owners or renters. The first time I ever encountered the paranormal was in this house when I was only 4 years old; I saw a man in my doorway and would cry to my mom about it. Fast forward to October 2016, I was laying in my bed about to go to sleep. Suddenly, I begin to feel someone rubbing their fingers on my head, playing with my hair;  This is startling, and immediately I’ll dismiss it as something normal because I keep a healthy skepticism. At first I thought it was just my head rubbing against the pillow, until I realized my hair being touched was not close enough to touch the pillow. Then I thought maybe it was the  air blowing my hair– not sure how that’s possible since the windows are closed, and there was no air conditioner blowing air. Then 2 minutes later, I feel the same sensation of fingers on my head. Then the touching sensation moved to my arm. You can see how this would be a nuisance when trying to fall asleep. read more
