Magical walk home in the rain! Bye bye van, hello city bus

My van got towed away, had to take the bus to work and it rained on my walk home! Sounds like a country song, but it’s just a day in the life. Turned out to be a pretty magical day though, so all is well.

My depression, why it’s bad right now, and how I deal with it

This is hard video, but it’s something lots of people are going through. It’s not huge news like Jake Paul and his asshole factory, to steal a (fantastic) term from Philip DeFranco, but this is real life. It’s not fake news drama. You know people who suffer from, or have been crippled by, depression like I have. This video will show them they are not alone, and suicide is not the answer to a problem that’s all in their head.

My new van is DEAD!! Life, why you gotta be so rude?

Yes, my new van is dead. I waited for so long for this thing only to have it explode on me in the middle of week two of owning it. Everything in my life is screwing me over right now, and there’s no end in sight either. I’m starting to feel like there’s some unseen power trying to ruin my life to the point that suicide is the only viable option.

And it’s working, sadly. Nothing in my life is going even passably well and I already can’t see a way out. I was ready to start a small business side hustle, this weekend, but I need a car for it. Now I can’t do that either. I’m about to give up, and that’s not bullshit. I’ve been at the end of my rope all summer long and every single day is worse than the last. I’m being forced out of life, there’s no other explanation for this much shit going wrong all in a row.

I thought 2016 was bad, but I could win the Powerball tomorrow and that wouldn’t be enough to call this a good year.

In a negative world, be careful to look inward to see the positive

Let’s face it, as mammals, human beings tend to remember the bad in an effort to learn what to avoid in the future. So think back to the days when our ancestors lived in caves, thousands of years before civilization began. We needed help to understand that going under water for too long sucks. We didn’t really need to know the why behind it, just don’t do it. These days, we all know what happens when we can’t breathe, so we don’t exactly need the lizard brain fucking with us.

The lizard brain refers to our most primal instincts. Eat-sleep-fuck, fire is hot, Family Circus was never funny, you know, the basics of life. We have outgrown our lizard brain, but it’s still there waiting to give us questionable advice. But all the book-learning we’ve done has led us to a place where the lizard brain needs to be silenced for most of our lives.

FOOD REVIEW! Lao’d Eatery in The Wausau Center Mall

This town needs some more culinary variety, and Lao’d Eatery in The Wausau Center Mall is something a little different from the norm. Me and my boy stopped down for lunch and we wanted to let you know what we thought of it.

Going to get my boy, might encounter resistance though

I get my boy from the relative he’s staying with’s house tomorrow and he’s gonna spend the rest of the summer with me! The resistance I spoke of is not coming from his mother though, she wants him with me as much as I do. It’s the relative who, well, she’s a bit off, but far from dangerous. But she’s kinda hard to understand at times. She’s got it in her head that I’m bad for the boy and he has been with her this summer for his safety. Which is only in her head.

See, his mother, my ex, she knows I’m a good father and the deal from the start was he would be there until I got a car and I’d have him on the weekends. When the program came through and I was mobile, I would go get him for the rest of the summer. Easy, right?

How my broke ass got a van – A Wheels to Work story, and a thank you

The Wheels to Work program helped me get two cars now, so I wanna tell you guys how I became the Dan with a Van. They help people who can’t afford to get a car or car repair and get them back on the road. They call it affordable, reliable transpiration, and that is what they provide.

You need to put in the work and earn it, and it ends in a short term loan, so it’s not a free ride by any means. You know your boy puts in the work, so I did it twice. The cars are donated and fixed up, any problem is taken care of and they even slap new tires in it for ya.
