• Retirement early?

    My plans are to retire in my 50s! I think it’ll be great and being able to exercise my right to work however and wherever I’d like after I’ve properly saved.

  • Pandemic Life

    It’s been an interesting year, that’s to say the least. The biggest shift that myself and others have HD to make was working from home. Thankfully, given that I work in technology (one of the few personal details you’ll get here) I was able to transition seamlessly into working from home and I’ve grown to […]

  • The #nerd Movement

    I am offended, simple. I grew up being made fun of, bullied and more — why?  Because I was considered a nerd.  Making good grades, wearing glasses, living my life on the computer, reading, playing video/trading card games are all fun things; however, then society pinned you as a nerd because you were being the […]

  • Fun podcasting

    A few years ago I created and started a podcast without two friends called Whaddup Tech. Since then, I’ve learned a lot about it. What to do, what not to do and when to realize you’re doing something wrong. From there, I’ve taken a step back and developed my own solo podcast called “In the […]

    As of August 20th I’ve switched up themes and menus to give a different look and feel! Additionally, I’m working to ensure that I post here more often to fully document what’s going on in my life on a more consistent basis, whether it is dealing with tech, fitness or other things.

  • My feelings on Apple v FBI

    Security, security, security.  This word is important to us all, in any circumstance except when it comes to the government. I will never understand how one entity believes that it should have access to everything you own even when it doesn’t own it. Do we not have a right to privacy?  Should we never have […]

  • Diet change to vegetarian?

    I have decided to embark on a new journey and for 30 days I will try a vegetarian  diet.  Will it stick?  I don’t know, it honestly depends on my energy level and weight level.  I don’t want to lose weight and I want to have more energy. You can follow my progress by viewing […]

  • YouTube Tab Leaving

    The YouTube tab on the DexterJohnson.ME website will be leaving; I am involved with the YouTube community and therefore since I have reached a certain number of subscribers will devote an entire site to TopNotch Male Style Tips.  So, instead of coming to the site, this site will be my centralized “hub” and you will […]
