Many people say that multitasking is bad. I get it. But, I am a multitasking person. Sometimes, I even claim that I am a hyper-multitasking person. Those who know me know that this is true. I run many companies, run many non-profit initiatives and social activities, play in bands, play…

please don’t take center stage

Since I was young, I knew that I am different. In a good way, that is. But that doesn’t help since I felt that it was lonely there. I was to young to understand any of this. Well, even if I were older I still would not understand it. …

You’re asking the wrong guy. My answer is definitely, yes. If you ask me why, then I am going to wing it. There are people out there who are better in answering that question. For me, it’s just a hobby. Since, it is a hobby, I am having a conflict…
