Ever look back at something and go, “Damn, I haven’t touched that in forever?” Yea, me too. This blog is a pretty good example.
Originally this blog was meant for me to write all about different subjects while I was looking for a job last year. I guess as a portfolio. Once I landed a job in Miami last October I had forgotten about this place. Except for when I had to renew it, which was a few months back.
While I am about to be laid off (major project restructuring), I don’t want this place to become just another stepping stone between jobs. I actually want to write again. This past year has been full of so many weird events, losing family members, my first time living alone, getting into some debt, working my way out of said debt, and my first “real” job (let’s be honest, if it’s a job, it’s real).
However, moving here caused me to lose interest in a lot of my hobbies, like photography and cooking, but I have picked up some new ones (I started to learn bass guitar recently). Soon I’ll have plenty of time to enjoy them again as I hunt for a new job. Which I’m looking for. All over the country. Looking at you Seattle.
Let’s Make This a Path
Like I said, I don’t want this blog to just wither between jobs. If anything I want to keep it alive. If you’ve read this far, thank you for sticking with my elderly rambling and non-sequiturs. I guess this is my call to action.
Lately I’ve felt the urge to write, like a lot. I’ve never written much outside of work or school, but a week or so ago (man I’ve lost track of time lately) I submitted a POEM to The Sun. Fingers crossed it’ll get published. But, for real a poem. I used to hate those back in middle school, but being an English student taught me to love them.
Don’t worry, I won’t (always) drown you in my bad poetry, but I do hope you’ll come back. My plan is to come back and share with you guys (who stick around) some rather unrelated content. Similar to my hobbies, my brain jumps around all the time–my blog will reflect this. Either way, I hope you join me on this weird path I’m going down.
In the meantime, have a picture of Miami from my window.
