I try not to do a lot of talking about myself, even on my own blog. It can be counter productive and won’t last long before I need a violin, a soap box glass case of emotion to hide in. I come here to inform and dish on subjects. Sometimes, though, I feel the need to enlighten my readers about who I am and what makes me tick. A few details from the blood and bones. This started on Facebook and I was given a task to provide 8 facts about myself. I decided to share it on here too. Enjoy….or not.
8 Facts About ME-
1.) Without my coffee, I am a complete asshole in the morning. Scratch that. I am a complete ass if I haven’t had coffee in a couple hours. It’s my fuel.
2.) Ever since I was a kid, I wanted to have a family. Took mental notes watching my dad growing up. My proudest moments in life are marrying my wife and watching Vin come into this world and fight his way towards health.
3.) My sense of humor directly from my dad, Rich. Apple didn’t even fall off the branch.
4.) I live and die by the St. Louis Cardinals. For 6 months a year, they control my mood.
5.) Writing is my single greatest passion and my favorite medicine. I will never stop doing it because it is therapeutic for me.
6.) I am fascinated by the world of film. The people who make them. The stories that live inside them. The collaboration. The wonderful magic that takes place as a result of them and how they can lift us up at any given time.
7.) I work out because it is an obsession that manifested inside me during high school. What started out as morning crunches in front of Sportscenter before high school in the morning became two a days in college and now is something I can’t stop doing.
8.) Take away everything but leave me my phone. I am addicted to my IPhone and can’t put it down for long. The world I live in. Take my clothes, the canoli but leave me my mobile device so I can check social media.
Eight more facts when I turn 40!!! Goodnight ladies and gents.
