Time for Reflection (The Suicide Death of Robin Williams and Lee Thompson)


The week that Actor Robin Williams committed suicide was the week before Actor Lee Thompson “Jett Jackson” committed suicide. And coincidently enough these deaths occurred on my plane ride to Boston from San Diego! This is sad folks–and a true epidemic.

Depression has taken our most cherished and beloved stars.

Lets mark THIS WEEK (and this month) as ‪#‎suicideawareness‬. If you know somebody who is going through some difficult times, give him call, a private message, or comment on their Facebook status and tell him or her, “You’re Awesome!”

Self-Hatred is the worst type of hatred. Let’s stop this virus together, before it spreads.

Thank you to those who continue to reach out to me–even when it’s least expected.

To all who reads this, I say onto you: “YOU ARE AWESOME!” ‪

If you need help with depression or you know of someone who is in need call 1-800-273-8255.

Prince in The City: Makena Gargonnu on Social Media

The Power of Social Media by Makena Gargonnu In this special talk I get to sit down with Makena Gargonnu and listen to her story: behind her discovery of Social Media and how she is using it in her day-to-day business as a Celebrity Event Producer.

Makena discovered the power of social media, when her husband Nasara was using Facebook to reconnect with his old college buddies. Observing how Facebook was able to reconnect with old friends, and how accessible it was to invite her clients to her shows, Makena immediately incorporated it into her business and she is now today known as the Facebook Event Guru of San Diego; because she is everywhere on Facebook!

If you wish to contact her to have your next celebrity event produced, go to her Facebook Fanpage by Makena G.

Motivation Monday: Tie Your Shoes [The Correct Way]!

It’s Monday, the beginning of a new week, and you need words of motivation to start your week off right.

This week’s words of motivation: Tie Your Shoes [The Correct Way]!

In this hilarious TED talk video, we see how one little detail can make all the difference in the world, especially when it comes to a life long skill that has been taught to us when we were little children: tying your shoes.

Terry Moore, founder of the Radius Foundation, is like all of us. We tie our shoes enough times in our livelihood that we do not care or worry about its appearances. But if it wasn’t for Terry’s close eye to detail towards his discomfort of “round nylon shoelaces,” then he would have never gained a lifelong lesson which would ultimately change his life [and others] for the better. Who would’ve thought that his embarrassing moment of not tying his shoes correctly [for 50 some odd years] would be broadcasted on the first ever TED talk video in the world of TED talks?

So this week, and before you walk out the door, Tie Your Shoes [The Correct Way]!

Pay close attention to details, or the little discomforts in your life, because you never know if that detail or discomfort will yield you great knowledge or rewards in the future!

Spotlight Feature: Carl Adrian, San Diego Bachata Dance Instructor


Carl Adrian is an amazing Bachata dance instructor, as well as an extraordinary individual for conquering life’s trials and tribulations from his own walk of life.

Carl was born to an Irish father and Salvadoran mother, and was raised in the west part of LA for the first 12 years of his life; then moved to San Diego at age 16.

Growing up, he says, was pretty tough because of his skin color and mixed heritage–especially having a near death experiences with a Crip Gang and Mexican Gang in Mexico. However, he says that those experiences have made him a better person: teaching him to never hate anyone, while gaining a unique perspective on life and discrimination issues. Also as a young adult he joined the military, which he served five years honorably. He is a combat vet and has left the service as a sergeant (E-5)–he’s very proud of his military accomplishments.

He came across Bachata music when he was dating a Colombian, who at the time introduced him to this music. From the first time he heard it, he instantly became addicted. He sought out all kinds of Bachata music but his passion could not be satisfied so easily. So he started looking for people to teach him how to dance to it. After 2 years of social dancing at the clubs, the club manager approached him and offered the job to him. “I never applied, they just gave me the job; I just got lucky,” he says. He now does what he loves and even gets paid for it.
Here are his few words of success from his trials and tribulations in life:
“Do not align yourself with an ethnicity simply because you share the same color of skin. And pursue a passion, not a career, that you would do for free. Once you identify that, find a way to turn it into a profession and get paid for it. You will learn that it won’t matter how much you got paid, you just love the job because it is rewarding. And life takes on its own happiness when you wake up everyday and look forward to work on something that you love. It’s not work for you, it’s a passion and you can’t wait to do it all over again the next day!”
Carl Adrian has a 10 year old son, who is the center of his universe, and speaks Spanish while learning Russian. Carl teaches Bachata classes every Wednesday at the Onyx Room and gives free lessons too!

“Thank you Carl and I love your weekly classes especially when I am in San Diego. Your humor and lessons are never dry. Because of that, I always have a new step in my ‘dancing library.’ I always look forward to your classes whenever I am in San Diego. Keep doing what you’re doing, and I hope to interview you soon!”

ThrowBack Thursdays: Fabrison’s Cafe–My First Coffee Review

Every Thursday I post miscellaneous article that I’ve written in the past or an interview of an extraordinary individual.

This week’s ThrowBack Thursdays Edition: Fabrison’s Cafe–My First Coffee Review.


How I first began writing reviews for coffee shops, and food restaurants, as well as using photos (Instagram) to promote my reviews started right here at this tiny cafe in Coronado, Ca. Having already caught the blogger bug during the first few weeks of blogging, I began to find new ways to publish my blogs without lugging around my laptop to do them: WordPress app on my iPhone. Not only was it convenient for me–to write and edit typos right on the palm of my hand–but it allowed me to explore Instagram and other social media apps which in return helped my website grow. And so, when I said “Wherever my work takes me, so does my coffee..” I literally meant it–I no longer needed to stop and pull up my laptop to publish any story.

Writing this coffee review at Fabrison’s Cafe was my humble beginning as a Foodie, a Yelper, and a Connoisseur for great coffee. I established good relations with the business owner(s) (by promoting their coffee/food/pastries etc. and their cafe) while I promoted my website.

So to read my coffee review and learn more about Fabrison’s cafe, click on the link below. And if you are in Coronado, CA go by their cafe for some good morning coffee!
