#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 […]

#361 Dentists and Taxes

As the end draws near, I’m preparing myself for a big life change. Part of that involves using what health benefits I have while I can. A little while ago I went to the dentist. What I didn’t mention was that I told him one of my teeth was feeling sensitive and painful. He said […]

#360 Spend the Night in the Wilderness Alone Part 2

Yesterday I went up to the Angeles Forest to spend the night there all by myself. I’d just settled into my tent for the night when I realized I still had my contacts in. I got my contact lens solution and holder from my bag and took them out. Then I reached for my glasses […]

#359 Spend the Night in the Wilderness Alone Part 1

About 6 years ago, I decided to go mountain biking in the Angeles National Forest for the first time ever. I found a trail that looked pretty good online and off I went. I got to the trailhead at 2pm. This was in December which meant I had about 3-3.5 hours of daylight. I didn’t […]

#358 The Awesome Foundation – Helmet Hero

If you recall, last year I got a grant from The Awesome Foundation to give away bike helmets. I was supposed to make a video to show my experience and it was going to be shown at a party. I was pretty excited about this but it kept getting pushed back and pushed back and […]

#357 Go to The Magic Castle

I’d heard about a place called The Magic Castle earlier in the year. Someone described it to me as some secret headquarters for magicians. I’ve talked about my aversion to magicians in the past in the post where I was in a magic show. So a Magicians’ lair sounded like one of my worst nightmares. Thus, I knew I […]

#356 Get Colon Hydrotherapy

GRAPHIC DESCRIPTIONS AND MAYBE A GLIMPSE OF SOME POO! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. My bum hole is kind of like my body’s final frontier. I never even saw the damn thing till I was in my 20’s. Never touched it until I thought I had worms or hemorrhoids a couple of years ago and it turned […]

#355 Apply for a Job

The day after I quit my job, I got an email from my former boss. It was about a job opening at a certain awesome late night host’s TV show. The job sounded like a perfect fit to me to be honest. I kind of sighed and put it out of my mind. I was […]

#354 The Moth StorySLAM Attempt #2 and The Party

Ok, I’m now officially pissed off. I prepared another story for The Moth StorySLAM this week. If you recall, I went last week but didn’t get picked by their retarded method of pulling names randomly from a bag. Why is it retarded? Because everyone has the same chance. Whether you’ve told a story thirty times […]

#353 Take a Trampoline Class

I wrote about participating in the reddit Secret Santa in December. I didn’t write about the awesome gift I got from my Secret Santa. When you sign up for the exchange, you can put some personal information in so your Secret Santa has a better idea of what to get you. Of course I put my […]
