Sound Off: Workplace Depression, Yes It’s Real

In September it will be a year since I’ve resigned from my full-time, salaried corporate job. While I’m freelancing and doing other things now and my pay fluctuates I don’t regret my decision. Why? Imagine walking into a place everyday that you couldn’t escape because it was your means of survival. You get a sick feeling each and every time you arrive, yet you stick around hoping it’ll change. Could it be workplace depression? Is your job actually a trigger? Is this possible?

Sound Off: Gun Violence is Out Of Control

I’m writing this with a heavy heart. News just broke that rapper Nipsey Hussle, 33, was gunned down outside of his store today. Gunned down in broad daylight. A son, a father, a friend, gunned down – and for what? For what? Why is everyone so trigger happy these days yet there are no solutions to gun control?

Exciting News | Crush the Chaos Merch

I’m so excited to share with you all that I officially have merch that exemplifies just what Chaotic Critic is. I have been toying with ever releasing products with Crush the Chaos on it.

Chaotic Reads | 2019 Reading List

I always have this lofty goal to read as much as possible. Each year I have this huge reading list and to be honest, maybe just maybe I’ll get through a book or two. Not to say I don’t enjoy reading, I just read on my phone instead of an actual book. No it’s nothing wrong with that since I have the ability to carry multiple books around in a single device. Still, I want to read the books I actually have serving as decor on my shelf. There’s a few that I’ve added to my collection that are a must read so let’s jump right to the list

Mental Health Awareness

2018 has been a whirlwind of a year for me and as we prepare ourselves for 2019, I thought I’d reflect on how this year has been for me mentally. As someone that has mental health issues, issues that reached a pinnacle this year, it’s only right that I shared my story. My testimony. This is nothing to shy away from. It’s nothing to ignore or fear being judged. This is real life and the best way to tackle it, is head on. Continue reading “Mental Health Awareness”
