Back in January, I set out my very simple intentions for 2015. I figured June would be a good time to see where I'm at and if it's even something worth writing a blog post about. 1) Lose Weight - Yeah baby! I am on point with this one! I surprised myself when I timed myself and came close to jogging for 4 minutes. You don't understand, there was a time when I didn't think I could jog for 2... Read more


I gotta tell you, I really like NOT having a blogging schedule anymore! So much hustling, so many blog planners, so many "347 Tips To Improve Your Blog" and "564 Blog Post Ideas" and "1,739 Ways To Get Visitors To Your Blog" AAAAAGGGGGHHHH! I just want to tell the Internet to SHUT UP! If I'm only going to post once a week then that's what I'm gonna do! High five?? :) My friend was having a yard sale over the... Read more


I'm in the middle of planning our city visit this weekend and that planning involves what we can do without spending much money. We are usually in the Hell's Kitchen and Chelsea area when we're in town and while New York can be expensive, your stay doesn't have to be. This post is going to be FULL of links to older posts because I tend to write about our stays a lot. We sleep on my parents couch so we... Read more


I mentioned back at the start of the year that I was getting my act together and do something about my weight and overall health. Yeah going on those 20 degree walks was cool and all but then the snow came and it kept coming and I don't think I'm ready to be this guy.... I started with a mile a day, that's about 15 minutes. My sneakers were pretty old so I had to get some new shoes and... Read more


I intentionally did not talk much about Etsy going public. I wasn't exactly against it but there was that part of me that felt like my favorite underground punk band that just me and a few friends were into suddenly would become U2. Maybe that's a bit dramatic? I knew they were going public this week but I did not know it was yesterday. I just happen to be going down to the city yesterday. While on the train I'm... Read more


Ever get into a creative or emotional funk? Times where you just feel down and defeated? Here is my extensive comprehensive list to turn things around: Scribble angrily in journal Tear out pages of said journal Play The Simpsons "Tapped Out" - I'm "pulpsushi" Play other games on iPhone and Kindle Watch monster movies on Netflix Eat cookies Make a Vanilla Chai Curl up in a fetal position on couch with favorite blanket Cry Tell your partner you feel hopeless...

I'm back! I was only gone for a few days but it felt longer. We went down to Manhattan and stayed over the holiday weekend. We didn't have much of an agenda. I just wanted to post this first because I just love the pink building! It might be an eye-sore for some folks but not me. This was taken in the East Village, maybe 5th Street off of 2nd Avenue. I got down to the city Thursday morning and... Read more


Last week I mentioned that I am writing my first e-book and I'm pretty excited about it! Writing is something I have always enjoyed since I was little and blogging has provided my writing "fix" for many years. I played with the idea of writing an e-book but didn't know what to write about. Now I have FOUR ideas for an e-book, funny how that happens. There is one topic that is really pulling at me so I'm going for... Read more


NOTE: I have a new layout! If you're viewing this in a reader, visit www.pulpsushi.com to see the new look! It was a year ago this month that I said goodbye to my long, grueling commute and quit my full-time job. The year went by fast! I can't say the transition has been easy but I welcome not having to commute anymore, especially after the winter we've had with this much snow. The downside has been that I'm making way...

I have a Kindle Fire HD 7 which I got a couple of years ago on a whim when Amazon was offering a ridiculous Cyber Monday sale. I didn't know if I was going to get into ebooks since I love reading books so much but it won me over. It's especially comfy to read when I'm laying in bed, which seems to be when I do most of my reading - at the end of the day before I... Read more
