Out The Box: The Rise Of Sneaker Culture

This past week I took an adventure to the Oakland Museum which is conveniently located in my hood to check out the exhibit on Sneaker Culture.

I ate some of the best ramen EVER with ox tail dumplings (YES, HELLA GOOD), swam with the sea lions in my underwear but most of all, I had a very meaningful conversation with one of my friends that made me make a “fourth quarter” resolution for the rest of 2015 that I have committed to carrying over into 2016.
