Decision, Decisions...

This could all be hypothetical, or it could be a reflection of someone's, including mine, reality; however, I will not make a distinction between the two for the sake of this post.

Keep reading...

I have come to the conclusion that really hard decisions aren't the ones where you have a choice between right or wrong, hard or easy, or yes or no. The hardest decisions are those with no substantial gain as a result of the decision - basically, when you're faced with a tough decision and both choices will lead to a consequence, causing you to choose not between entrapment or escape of the consequence but between which of the two evils will present less consequence. I call this the "robbing Peter to pay Paul" situation.

Case in point: You have feelings for someone who doesn't have the slightest clue. There is no right or wrong; you can tell the person and risk the awkwardness or you can not tell them and let a potential opportunity pass.

Case in point: You cheat on your boyfriend/girlfriend. By telling the person you hurt them, by not telling them you hurt them, so you choose the lesser of the two evils, specific to your own relationship.

Case in point: You're in college and you support yourself by working a full-time job. You have a test and need to study but you also have to work just to get by. Ideally, you would be able to juggle everything and study ahead, but life always happens and things don't work that way every time. What do you do?

The point of all this is, adult decisions suck but they are a major part of growing up. So stop complaining!

Lady Gaga's Political Message



Lady Gaga speaks out on her plea for the repeal of DADT, urges her fans to call their senators and ask them to block John McCain's filibuster, and makes a powerful statement, "I ask that you be a voice for this generation, not for the generation of the senators."

She may be crazy onstage and in her dress, but she is very intelligent.

this is a fashion post.

Recently, I've been trying to revamp my style into a more classic, mature silhouette. As a gentleman in my 20's I feel like this is the time where habits are formed and I want to be in the habit of dressing nicely. Clothes can be superficial, but the reality  of your wardrobe is that it is your first line of defense, especially when it comes to first impressions. Clothing can be a form of expression, but because I consider myself, for the most part, to be a reserved person, I tend to go for clean, tailored lines, usually basic colors (like black, white, gray, etc.) and with this being said,  recently I purchased a small wardrobe from Calvin Klein.

Calvin Klein is a very masculine (even for women), tailored, and elegant fashion house and his clothes are, without a doubt, impeccable. I was lucky enough to purchase one suit from his outlet store, along with a handful of tailored shirts, and another from the sample-sale website, Gilt Groupe. Even though I did not pay an arm and a leg personally for the garments (thanks to my bargain hunting), there is definitely a mature and sexy gratification-type feeling from his clothes due to the quality. I plan to buy more when I can afford to do so in the coming months.

I am trying to style myself into a manner in which I want my life to function, simple, structured, mature, sexy. I included a few pictures in here just so you can get a vibe of Mr. Klein's designs and the elegant appeal of his clothing.
