I’m just a thirty something year old male from Chicago trying to survive a time in my life where everything seems to go wrong, or isn’t going so well. I’ve been laid off of my last two jobs for an extended period of time, money was TIGHT, and then, the wife needed “space”. With nowhere to go (at the time), I ended up here, in the Caribbean . Some people would think this is a good thing, but….
Anyway, the reason I decided to start this blog is because one of the things I began to do when things started going south was that I started to journal. I will admit, I wasn’t very consistent, but I tried to express myself through words. Take my thoughts and type them down. That’s all well and fine, and it was somewhat therapeutic, but I think if I open up a little, and share with other people who may be going through similar circumstances, all the better. We could create a small community where people help and support each other. Seems like a good idea, right?
So along with the journaling, I would get lost in music. Always loved music. In my younger days, I was a DJ, and even became somewhat of a musician. I know there were tons of songs that spoke to me, or just seemed to be almost a soundtrack to what is going on in my life right now. So, along with the sad, sorry, serious stuff, thought I’d share some music too. I’ll also share any helpful information I find while I cope with this thing called life, and from time to time, maybe even go off topic with different things. And please, feel free to share your lives, music, and anything else that helps you cope, just makes you smile and forget the bad stuff for a little while.
Eventually, I believe this blog will evolve and change. Just like us. It will evolve for the better. Just like we should. But one step at a time. Got to crawl before you walk, and walk before you run.
