Without making this sound like one of those dreadful monologues that open every episode of Grey’s Anatomy, let me impart on you some thought I’ve had and why I’m back. I’ll try to keep some mystery and secrets to encourage repeat visits, but those of you that know me personally should be very aware that I’m rarely lacking for stories or material—let alone hot shorts.
As you can imagine, a lot has happened since I last updated this site, which I believe was about two or three years ago. Every now and again I’ll be asked why I don’t update my site anymore, or even think the same thing to myself. I can sum up that answer with one word: naps. I love naps. I could enter a competition and win, even against cats. But I digress, that just makes me sound like a lame loser—which I’m not. Right?
In preparing for the Adriel Comeback Tour, or Adriel 2.0 (rather 3.0 at this age, who am I kidding), I decided to start with a clean slate. All previous entries have been deleted and I am going to approach this the same way I do a new bag of gummy bears or a stiff drink—I’m not satisfied until the job is done. I’m also challenging myself to write something everyday, however brief, while in my briefs.
I’ve also decided to focus on some major categories or topics along this journey. Yes, there will still be a random YouTube video or picture I find particularly hilarious, but I think you’ll enjoy what I have in store. Here’s a sneak peek.
Much like before, I’ll be sharing stories from my workplace. I’ve decided to incorporate some new slang the kids are using, Twerk! Here’s where you can read up on the inappropriate things that I say, do, or happen to me in the old nine-to-five.
Most of my material comes from my, as yet professionally diagnosed, crazy mother. Don’t get me wrong, I love the old broad, but trust me—she’s a handful. From conspiracy theories to belief in unicorns, you’ll get it all here!
I can’t deny the fact that I am a political junkie. I follow all the news and have opinions. I know things! This is my take on what’s going on in the world, but naturally with an Adriel Spin—but not too much, I get dizzy.
Let’s not be cute. It’s exactly what it sounds like. My dating life is as disastrous as an elderly person behind the wheel at a farmer’s market. But you’re in luck; my woes are your wonderful! Take a stroll with me and find out why the universe is giving me a strong suggestion to just settle down with a heard of cats and call it a night.
As an avid rider of the Los Angeles Metro system, I’ve amassed quite a few stories. Better yet, I’ve also become quite the spy when it comes to taking candid photos of people I encounter. Trust me, National Geographic would be jealous of some of the photos I have.
I’ll still share stories about my life, including the outings, the pseudo-celebrities, the band of cohorts I call friends, TV shows I’m obsessed with, and the like. Sadly, my viewing recommendations are mainly on shows that have long been off the air. (Have you heard about The West Wing?!)
I will respect people’s privacy and anonymity…when I feel like it. Some names have been changed to protect their already sullied reputation. I can’t really bring them down any further, but I’ll try! And that’s why we’re friends.
Without further ado, let’s begin. Please silence all cell phones and as always, no flash photography.
