And Here We Go

Who am I to deny the nearly half-dozen people that wanted more?

It took some serious help from my life coach, Dan, to get this blog started. Apparently, most reputable web-hosting companies have WordPress pre-loaded onto their servers, but not the one we use for 5150 Records which, for frugality’s sake, is where this blog is secretly being hosted. The web-hosting company did, however, have detailed instructions on how to install WordPress yourself, you just need to contact your local IT administrative professional to decipher it all.

It feels good to be back in the blog, and I like the idea of this new one. Instead of traveling a single path like Checking Into College, this one will travel them all! The premise is simple, and can be found on this site’s about page.

It is my hope that this blog will be far more interactive than my last one, offering people an opportunity to chime in and discuss aspects of the various sections. It is my hope that people will take the liberty of their Internet given rights to agree, argue, love and hate, re-post and dismiss my philosophies, musical endeavors, and so on.

You’re a philosopher?

Yes, I think very deeply…

Over the next week or two, I will be blogging heavily, adding starter posts to the different sections. This is a brave new world for me; an opportunity to show anyone watching that a person doesn’t have to be born, go to school, get a job, get married, have kids, and then slowly fade away so that others may peacefully continue the cycle.

Don’t misunderstand me. The list I’ve described above is perfect for a great number of people. It can be a life full of joys and accomplishments. If certain folks hadn’t engaged in exactly this lifestyle, I wouldn’t be here. Neither would the wonderful woman I married, and neither would any of the opportunities that now present themselves to me.

But I want more than the formula. My callings are more diverse, my challenges more involved, my joys not so easily achieved.

A brave and crazy new world indeed. So, don’t think I’m just telling another story, because I’m not. It takes a village to raise a child, and I am newly born into this life I’ve chosen. I will accept any help, analyze any advice.

The future is a road with many twists and turns, and I have no map. So, buckle up!
