About Me

Monday, January 1, 2007

People call me a lot of names, a couple to my face, but you can call me Mr. Jones.

I am single and live in lovely and exotic (note the sarcasm) Baltimore, Maryland, with my eighteen-month-old dog, JJ, and a slightly younger and less fun palm plant.

I have an extremely exciting life.

I am a 24-year-old full-time slave to da man. I work in non-profit, so I guess somewhere down the line someone is benefiting. That's encouraging.

My Ma raised me primarily by herself and I thank her for that. I didn't curse until I was 12. I didn't drink or try drugs until the summer before I went off to college. I didn't even have pre-marital sex until I was...well, that's not important. She still did a good job.

I attended the University of Maryland and studied Political Science and African-American Studies. That may explain my positions, perspective and why I discuss some of the stuff some I talk about on this blog.

I have no idea how or why, but I started blogging in April of 2007. I guess you can say it's something I enjoy doing. I REALLY enjoy doing this if I got paid for it.

I'm a chill guy who can be a bit particular at times. I know how to tone that down though. I enjoy sports and driving through cities after it rains and people who appreciate life and mentally stimulating conversation over mixed drinks...or beer. It doesn't really matter. Oh, I like alcohol, too. But not in an alcoholic way though.

I like learning stuff and I read everything I can get my hands on. I don’t care if it's a cereal box, I'm reading it. I'm filled with lots of little random facts about stuff no one other than me cares about. I'm big on acquiring knowledge.

I am very receptive to different things i.e. cultures, foods, music, experiences, etc. I'm witty, funny, loving, goal-driven, kind, a good listener, and loyal.

I like to think I'm a pretty good writer, too.

I hope you enjoy what I have to say. If you don't, fuck it.

It's no fun if you don't say anything.
