So I Guess I Didn't Make MTV's The Real World Season 31 - Shoutout to Dione From #TheRealWorld


I guess the waiting is over..

I'm sitting here waiting for a callback from MTV studio's for my third interview for this season's Real World almost 10 months later. I woke up everyday hoping to hear from them. 10 long months later, I get a text with this picture:

Dione from The Real World Season 31

Last July (2015) I took a day trip up to Boston to try out for MTV's The Real World. I was called back for the second round however, 'Dione' preceded me in the interviews. The Casting Director had him picked before I even had the opportunity to ask Dione if he would kindly pick up his shark tooth necklace that had fallen off his barren chest (I knew I should've made a scene-maybe I would ride on his coattails to fame, maybe that was my shot at the top). The odds were stacked against me but I still took a shot. Watch me discuss my disappointment unfold here on Periscope:

I wanted the fame - I wanted it SO bad. I even convinced the first 30 people in line that I was one of the producers:

Moral of the Story: Never Give Up.

Shoutout to my friend Nick for helping me with the rejection!!


Never Give Up

That's enough about the time that I was "almost famous" - maybe I just wasn't cut out for that lifestyle. America wasn't ready for me... Yet!! Anyways that's enough about the real world adventure - shoutout to Dione, well deserved man.

Flash Back to Reality.

So I didn't make it to the Real World (although Dione I expect a shout-out to my Blog while you're on The Challenge- I'll provide you the t-shirt) and the last time we spoke was over two weeks ago. I guess we can pretend that I took an unplanned vacation from blogging. Some of my core friends are good at keeping me honest – “dude you haven’t been manifesting-whats the deal? You’re letting me down..." Thanks for keeping me honest guys:

I've deviated from consistent updates and gotten real lazy. I'd started a new job about a month ago and used it as an excuse to 'take some time off'.


Facebook Live is the Future

I've been trying out Facebook Live a lot lately but more for personal use than anything else:


Snapchat is ALSO the Future

The reason you ask? Accessibility.

As always – for everything Manifest Millennial stay updated on my snapchat – ayjzzle.

The weeks discussion: What's the closest you've ever gotten to fame?! What about fame is so appealing to us?
