I’m Ready, I Am

I’ve never done a very good job of documenting my thoughts, and I’m entirely too lazy to ever even consider maintaining a handwritten journal.

I do see myself as the kind of guy that will want to be able to go back years from now and look at what I was thinking and talking about during this new phase of life (the transition from college to whatever you want to call this stage that’s come after graduation).

When I’m down, my parents always tell me how this “chapter” was one of the hardest periods of their lives.  I can honestly see that holding true for me as well.  With that in mind, I don’t want to just say “you’ll get through it” and/or “things will get better with time” to my kids some day (as much as I appreciate hearing it from my parents right now).  In the back of my mind, I know that it’s probably true that things will get better with time though, and I will have forgotten about the day-to-day aspects of entering adulthood.  Essentially, that’s what this website is all about.

I don’t know what this will turn into, but I want to be able to go back and see what I liked, cared, and thought about during these “growing pain” years.  If I’ve sent you the link to this blog, it’s because I consider you a friend and hope to be sharing these “glory days” stories with you years from now.  Inspired by the words of one of my favorite bands, this will be me trying to find truth in words, in rhymes, and notes…

Thanks for reading.

    I feel so honored that I get to sit across from you 8+ hours a day during this time in your life. I will make it my mission in life to bestow upon you the great knowledge I have acquired throughout my past 4 post-college years in Nashville.

    But seriously, it will be interesting to look into the inner workings of my favorite kickball player’s mind to see exactly what draws you to old men like Bono and Bruce. Or perhaps I won’t read and just keep thinking it’s gotta be the scruff and tight jeans.
