I finally went to Quawtaz! That’s how us NOLA natives say “Quarters.” This is the third installment of my “Javan Does Baton Rouge” series, and in this one, I’m taking you to Baton Rouge’s very own, Quarters. Many cities in America have similar entertainment complexes like this, including the national chain Dave & Buster's. I’ve … Continue reading Javan Does Baton Rouge — Quarters
“Happy Father’s Day!” Most of us spent our lives fortunate enough to shout that to our father figures the first time we saw them for the day, but fewer of us are lucky enough to have that said to us. Luckily for me, I have that fortune. I’m a little over a week shy of … Continue reading Happy Father’s Day!
This is a sort of follow-up from my related blog about a recent episode of MTV's True Life about people with social anxiety.

We recently learned that Jacqueline MacInnes Wood … Continue reading “The Bold and the Beautiful” — Skyfall. Sky…FALL.
This blog is a redacted excerpt from a journal entry that I just typed on today while at work. While it doesn't directly reflect any of the recent story lines, it is very relevant to fashion, as well as society today and I still thinkthat it is very much worth reading. With that said, let's … Continue reading “The Bold and the Beautiful” — No One Wants to See That?

These … Continue reading True Life: I Have Social Anxiety
April 20th was scheduled to be a big day for me. It was to mark the third launch of my Space Shuttle series (full website here), and it was also to mark the beginning of my Summer tour of Baton Rouge. I can now say that it held true. While I was out, I thought … Continue reading Javan Does Baton Rouge — Highland Road Park Observatory/International Astronomy Day
