There's a million stories from my school days, but there is only one that I, for some reason, like to share. Others make me feel ashamed, cause they’re funny to other people, but for me they are just painful memories. But back in the days I used to do a lot of crazy stuff with my mates and we were somehow getting into trouble all the time.

 

I was never going to classes too much. It was easier to stay outside with my friends and talk about the same things over and over again. It was all about…

Not long before moving back to the US from the UK, I started the process or getting organised. It was a gradual process of selling stuff and packing. I already knew I had to get necessary paperwork for my three cats for the journey. But my Ms Doolittle radar attracted yet another waif to my door. It had been raining that day. When my SO came home that evening, he mentioned there was a cat in the front yard. Of course, I had to check it out. She was thin and her coat wasn’t in great condition.…

I love music festivals. I usually get quite drunk and next day I wake up full of regret. Few years ago, me and my friend were going to some smaller punk rock festival, it’s in some small town and we always loved to go there. We took a train and we started drinking early in the morning.

 

When we came there it was fantastic, I never saw more alcohol in my whole life. We were already quite drunk, but there was beer coming from everywhere. I was mixing some cheap wine with beer and whiskey,…

It started as a business trip that would cover several states over a period of a few weeks. My business partner and I knew we were in for at least nine hours of driving, but we expected to be in New York before it got very late. We were maybe thirty minutes from the Big Apple when I woke up around 1am and noticed lights ahead of us. There wasn’t much traffic except for a semi ahead of us that we passed. I glanced briefly at the driver and remember that he had dark hair, but other than that I…

Now, I don't know anything about cars. I never wanted to have one as I drink a lot and there is no way that someone would convince me not to drive when I'm drunk. I would probably kill someone and go to jail, and let me tell you something, I really don’t wanna go to jail. However, I always loved to drive around with one of my friends. He is really nervous and he is quite a bad driver.

 

So, me and my best friend, we loved to drive with that guy, and he hated us. We were making fun of him and…

Living in the desert has an appeal unlike any other environment. The scorched beauty of stark landscapes and surreal sunsets, the serenade of coyotes, and most of all, the adorable Antelope ground squirrels. For the longest time I thought they were chipmunks, but these cute critters are actually small squirrels with faces that say, “Feed me!” And feed them I did, until their little cheeks bulged with as much seed, peanuts, and other goodies they could cram into their faces. But there was one…

Finding a girlfriend is an easy part, most of the girls are quite pretty and they are quite interesting at first. But my best friend always struggled to have a normal relationship. All of his girlfriends were somehow crazy, they yelled at him a lot and some of them were quite evil too. I mean, I told him a lot of times not to be in relationship with the girls from art school, that they are all crazy and they have always broke my heart. Sadly, he had to learn that on his own.

 

But once he had…

Though I grew up in Southern California, I’d never experienced a wildfire until 2016. There had been many fires in the high desert area that year, including a few that were close enough to see clearly, but an afternoon in August 2016 proved to be one that I’ll never forget. As it happens, I had to drive to Los Angeles that day, so I left early. It was my intention to head back before the notorious LA rush hour started, but as I got onto the freeway, I noticed a cloud that resembled a nuclear…

Hissy another stray cat that found her way into my heart and into my home. She may not have been that large, but what she lacked in size, she compensated for in ferocity. Thus was borne, the “Hissinator”. Hissy showed up back when I had my outdoor hutches. I noticed her on the wall one day checking out my fur critters. Of course, being the animal magnet that I was, I figured she showed up on my turf for a reason. But she was skittish whenever I approached, so she was either a feral or had been…

Away days are always fun, and my friend, he had a luck that his club owners were paying the bus for all the away fans. It's a smaller club, so not a lot of people are going to away games, but those that are going are all quite insane.

 

In the beginning they were acting normal, they were traveling for free so they knew to respect that. However, after a little bit of time, they started doing all sorts of crazy things. They were always drunk and used to get naked on the bus. They stopped the…
