NSMA Draft 2015
Statement from J.D.
J.D. To Enter NSMA Draft
The Parody Agency, which has signed Bach eligible bachelor J.D., released the following statement, in which he explains his decision to enter the 2015 NSMA draft, on his behalf:
“After weighing this decision with my family and friends, I have decided to declare for the 2015 NSMA draft and forgo my remaining eligibility at Bach. I reached this very difficult decision after careful consideration and long thought, realizing how difficult it would be to say goodbye to my bachelors and bachelorettes at Bach. I am eternally grateful for the relationships, friendships, hookups, make out and cuddling sessions, and have greatly enjoyed my time as a bachelor, boyfriend, and friend, both as a broken-hearted heartbreaker and heartbreakie.
“I will always take pride in being chosen and pursued by some amazing, beautiful, incredible, prominent women and bachelorettes, I am confident that my returning bachelors will continue the success for many years to come.
“To the suitresses, countesses, bad girls, good girls, secret and open admirers, I can’t thank you enough for the support you showed me and the boys over my entire Bach career; it was a humbling experience, for you all to enjoy as well, I hope. Continue reading
Tomorrow is a mystery, but the future is always bright.
Scattered emotions, improperly managed feelings, and random thoughts constantly running through me has been life lately, finally had an epiphany, it all poured out on paper. Writing really is therapeutic, I’ve had too much on my mind: positive, negative, and indifferent. Thoughts on our current world, the future, my personal, professional, and romantic life. Today, I’m finally feeling more like myself again, all it took was hours of overthinking, constant confusion, cheeky deflection, depressing overanalyzations, and good friends providing doses of no sugarcoating tough yet gentle love. It’s been a life changing roller-coaster of a summer, with extreme highs and extreme lows; for the most part for the better.
It always amazes me how easily rationality and perspective get thrown out the window when you get lost in your head and emotions; quite difficult to get out of it. Sometimes a situation, a person, or something will stress you out so much that it throws you off or takes you off your game; you get distracted, you get lost, and you lose sight of things. Something can be the reason for your highs one minute, but then the cause of your lows the next. I don’t mind change, but when change occurs when everything seems to be going better than ever, perfect then seems to be the furthest thing from the realm of reality. It’s crazy how we can get confusingly blinded by something or someone that we forget our own value, along with everything one has to offer and has going for themselves. Continue reading
“At the end of the day we’re all going to make mistakes, we’re all going to do things we regret, even to those we care about. It’s unavoidable. But at the end what matters is how you address your failings, how you treat your family, how you treat your friends, how you forgive, and how you love. Oh, and one more thing I’ve realized, you never get the whole bucket list done, you just keep adding things to it, because everyday there’s something new to amaze us. That’s how we know we’re alive.”
“Bones” Season 9 Episode 5 ‘The Lady on the List’
Buried alive, I love it
afraid, I’ve turned into
an undertaken workaholic
burned out, I am not
I want it, near, close
the light I see
I can’t be far from it
in time, I breathe, above I see
rows of long lasting blossomed trees
bear of overworked matured seeds
seams to seem
it was all meant to be
A depiction of how I often see life: past, present, and future in a short poem. I titled it ‘Buried Alive’ for many reasons, but I’m leaving it up for interpretation. It may have more than one meaning and open to different conclusions.

What is the first thing you think of when you hear the word:
You think of an individual who possess “extraordinary or superhuman powers,” who is dedicated to protecting the public. The prototypical superheroes that come to mind are Superman, Spider-man, and super-heroine Wonder Woman, but then there are vigilantes as Batman and Green Arrow without such super-powers who share other superhero traits. The majority of DC and Marvel Comics superheroes use their powers to counter day-to-day crime, while also combating threats against humanity by super-villains; or in Captain America’s case, Nazism or Communism, and for Thor, godlike or demonic creatures.
Recognizing that most characters do not strictly require actual superhuman powers to be deemed superheroes, it’s safe to say that superheroes do not only exist in comic books. So when I hear the word superhero, the first thing that comes to mind are not the characters created and found in fantasy/adventure fiction, but the extraordinary individuals in the world around us, whom possess superhero traits, who are positively impacting, contributing, making, and leaving the world better than prior to entering it.
I think Dave Chappelle said it best when asked about Richard Pryor, he noted:
“The mark of greatness is when everything before you is obsolete and everything after you bears your mark.”
The same can be said about several people, personally, individuals like, Nelson Mandela, Jackie Robinson, Steve Jobs, Bill and Melinda Gates, Oprah Winfrey, Martin Luther, Muhammad Ali…, just to name a few, are superheroes in my eyes. But I believe the same can be said and true about any of us today, if not someday. Continue reading
