#365 The End (?)

From very early on, I knew that I wanted to end Scare Yourself Every Day with a big party. I always envisioned it as a huge event. Renting out an entire bar. Hundreds of people. Everyone who supported the blog and everyone who was a part of it. The Scientologists, the Mormon Missionaries. My psychic […]

#364 Last Day at Work

A month ago I quit. Well, gave my notice at least. Of course that was a difficult decision. One of the most difficult of my life. But that whole time after you’ve given notice, you feel as though you can back out at any time. Sorry boss! It was just a bluff to get more […]

#362 Guest Post – Bonnie

With the blog coming to an end, I’ve been thinking about how SYED started as this very personal thing and has since turned into more of a community exprience. I already had my friend Nate make a guest post about changing his look (which quickly reverted back I might add). But I wanted to hear […]

#317 Go to an Art Dinner with Experimental Music

Good friend Tim sent me an email last week telling me about some weird art dinner at this gallery called Public Fiction. Tim works in the Art industry so he’s always privy to stuff like this. All I knew was there was going to be some sort of vegetarian dinner with each course being paired […]

#315 Find Vick

I’ve been thinking a lot about spending Christmas Eve as a homeless person. It’s been one of those slow burn type experiences where I process a little chunk of it every day. I think a lot about Vick. Because he was nice to me when he had no reason to. He had a good heart and […]

#310 Attend No Pants Metro Ride 2012

I’m not sure how I heard about No Pants Metro Ride 2012. It could have come to me in a dream for all I know. But there it was. For the fourth time apparently. A day when people ride the metro here in LA and other major cities without pants. In other words, how a […]

#304 Go to a Korean Spa

I first heard about Korean Spas from my Korean friend Julie. She explained it to me once a while ago but the only thing I really took away from the conversation was: YOU HAVE TO BE NAKED THE WHOLE TIME. That may be an exaggeration, but you do have to spend most of your time […]

#302 Throw a Dinner Party

A couple of years ago I threw a New Year’s Eve dinner party. It was a pretty extensive undertaking. About ten people showed up. It’s hard enough making food for that many people but I also got ambitious. I had just seen Ratatouille and learned that Thomas Keller actually created a real recipe for the Ratatouille […]

#294 Holiday Baking and Chick-Fil-A

Today’s scary thing is a two-for (and not in the good sexy way). For the past few years, I’ve baked cookies and given them out as gifts for the holidays. At first it started out pretty simple. I made chocolate chip cookies. That’s it. Then it evolved into this elaborate thing where last year I […]

#282 Ask My Friend for His Honest Opinion of Me

I’ve been thinking a lot about myself and relationships. I used to think that I wanted to get married and have kids. Then I wasn’t so sure. I don’t know exactly why that changed. I used to think I knew what I wanted in a girlfriend. But then that completely went out the window with […]
