There's really not much else I could reveal in this post, than I haven't already discussed in other posts, or tweets, or other social media! But I guess there are a few things I could "reveal" here, that some people may not remember, or know where to find it...

My name... is NOT (legally) ... Willie Stylez!!!

It's not William F Stylenzski, either! HA! That was a twitter thing! SMH! #DontAsk #DJM Hopefully I didn't just blow your minds! Good night!

#30DayBlogChallenge - Day 28 - Most Embarrassing Moment

Day 28: Most Embarrassing Moment
For more info on this 30 Day Blog Challenge, click here!

I have’t been “truly” embarrassed since high school, and all I remember about that was falling “UP” some stairs during morning “rush”! LOL! Yea, I’m sure that wasn’t the only thing that hurt my rep back then! 

I was never, what you'd call, popular! I have had PLENTY of embarrassing moments in my youth! From telling the wrong people about my crushes, and having them reveal them at the most inopportune times! ... is ANY time, opportune, for your crush to find out about your feelings...then CRUSH those feelings!?!? SMH!

To being called out about my "lazy" eye, back when I didn't have the confidence to ignore it or "return the favor"! And even down to the times I was "beat up" by elementary school bullies ... including a girl, and also a guy that was a lot smaller than me! Hey, I was non-confrontational! And then there was good old embarrassing moments at home... like the times I'd get whoopin's in front of my sister or cousins, for doing something stupid! SMDH!

Anyway, through it all, I have gotten through these moments ... or years... without much pride lost, but being a lot stronger because of it! I gained confidence from being able to overcome and minimize! I have also learned, there's nothing else ... well, not much else... life can't throw at me, that will leave me embarrassed or mortified! I've been through a lot, and I know, there's much bigger fish to fry in this thing we call life!

#30DayBlogChallenge - Day 27 - What's In Your Closet

Me and some clothes!
Day 27: What's In Your Closet
For more info on this 30 Day Blog Challenge, click here!

My closet is not that complicated. I share this large walk-in with my wife, who actually uses 2/3's of the whole thing. I have my one rack full of summer, winter and spring/fall clothing. I keep my clothes sectioned off as follows (front to back):

  • Dress shirts
  • Suits
  • Casual shirts
  • tie rack
  • a hanging organizer for different accessories
  • Casual pants
  • Dress pants
  • "Play" clothes and jeans LOL!
  • Dress coats
  • extra jackets
Up top, I keep all of my other stuff organized, like PJ's, boxers, hats, accessories, etc. Down below, I keep my shoes, boots, and a hamper for my dirty clothes. My wife has pretty much the same stuff, so we keep the closet well stocked! LOL!

What's in your closet!?

#30DayBlogChallenge - Day 26 - Your Hidden Talent

Day 26: Your Hidden Talent
For more info on this 30 Day Blog Challenge, click here!

OK, of all the posts in this challenge, I'm having the hardest time with this one. I mean, I'm sure folks know about all of my more obvious talents and abilities. But a hidden talent, is not the easiest thing to think of. I'll have to be a little abstract, just to pull this one off! I'm unfortunately, not that interesting, or secretive! LOL!

What I can do, is list all of my talents, and if you didn't know one of these, about me, then I guess we can call it "hidden"! Hopefully I'll cover them all (in no particular order):

  • I'm really good with computers
  • I adapt extremely fast, and well, to new technology
  • I have quick and perceptive, deduction skills (I figure things out quickly, without much prompting or any clues)
  • I have always been great at math ... I just get it
  • I've always been told that I'm an exceptional writer and speaker ... although I've personally always had to work extra hard at it, and hated the subjects in school!
  • I can bounce a basketball through my legs AND I have pretty good "handles"! Maybe not A.I. level, but pretty good for computer geek!
  • I can make cars levitate with my mind
  • Some people say I have a knack for organizing get-togethers ... I'm not sure how true that is, but I do try to "flex" that skill whenever possible! I love hangin with my people!
OK, so the 2nd from last one ISN'T true...I was just seeing if you were paying attention! LOL!

#30DayBlogChallenge - Day 25 - Your Biggest Regret

Day 25: Your Biggest Regret
For more info on this 30 Day Blog Challenge, click here!

To tell the truth, I don't (or try not to) regret anything in life! I firmly believe that there is no need to regret decisions/actions in life, only that we should learn from our mistakes! Those stepping stones are what make us stronger, and even successful, in the end!

But the 30 day blog challenge would be no fun if I didn't follow through with my "big regret"! So, to comply, I must say the biggest life lesson I've had (due to my regret), would be:


  • Not making enough of it available to my kids
  • Not giving enough of it to my wife
  • Not dedicating enough of it to my own success
  • Not making more of it so I can spend times with friends,

I am not a master of time, by all means, but I have learned to cherish it, give it to those I care about, and make it available when my kids need it most! I have spent the majority of my life working, trying to be perfect, and trying to be the best at whatever it is I was doing at the time.

However, I found myself neglecting my family, my friends, even my personal goals! So I have learned to take advantage of whatever time I can scrounge up, spend it with the kids, spend it visiting friends! It has made a huge difference in my relationships and the respect you gain. People realize you're going to be there for them, and they can depend on you. That is the greatest I could have!
