Next Steps in a forgetful career

Hey all.

These last few months have been extremely tough. As some of you know I recently graduated law school and there’s this weird thing where weeks after graduating you’re immediately stuck in the isolating process of studying for something called “The Bar Exam.” I won’t bore you with how morale-breaking that was, I tweeted through it like a champ, let’s keep it at that. The one I do regret was having family from Kenya that I haven’t seen for years come over and I immediately isolating myself from them instead of giving them the time of their lives during their first visit to America, for that samahani nitakufanya uwe kwako.

That chapter is behind me now. I took the test and it’s in Gods hand now, I’m just happy to have my life back. With my newfound time, I look forward to getting back to writing which has been one of the more therapeutic hobbies in my life.

During some of the last weeks of my writing before I went through the Bar process, I was thinking of making a change to what I write about. I love the Celtics, I love CelticsBlog and I look forward to continuing my time with that site. Jeff and Bill are some of the best people to interact with and work with and I’m so grateful that they allowed me to get back to writing on the site after I had to leave at a pretty important time of the year. With that being said, I don’t want to limit myself to just writing about the Celtics. I love this game with everything I have, it was the link I had to connecting with so many of the relationships I’ve been able to form over the years and I’ve always believed that my love for the game would always trump my love for a specific team. So with that being said, I’ve decided to use this site to pursue some of those other interests.

That means on top of the Celtics stuff which I intend on keeping exclusively on CelticsBlog, I’ll be using this site to write about the rest of my thoughts concerning all the other teams. Furthermore, with some luck I’ll be looking to get credentialed for a few games this year now that I have that freedom to make that type of commitment.

I don’t want to be known as just a Celtics guy, because my love for the game runs much deeper and I look forward to sharing that with you all to the best of my abilities. I also want to be upfront about one more thing. I don’t intend to write for free for my whole life, so this upcoming season I’ll put all my pieces on this site for free to give you guys an idea of my work across the league and hopefully draw some interest. Then starting in the 2020-21 season I’ll probably shift to Patreon for a small fee and hopefully some of you guys will come on that ride with me.

I love this game, I love interacting with you guys, and I hope you’ll follow me on this journey. Please email me at: if there’s something you want to follow up on. I really can’t wait to do this and I’m crossing my fingers that you’ll love the work half as much as I enjoy doing it.
