300. Come Out and Play.

A few years ago someone told me that I had a knack for writing but I brushed it off and figured she was just trying to get some.

On several occasions, I’ve had people tell me that my brain was crazy. The fact that I remember the strangest things actually supplement that statement.

I had always been creative but I kept it in a cage for YEARS. I’m not sure why. Maybe some of it was embarassment. Maybe I just didn’t think people would understand. After all I’m an analytical dude. I need numbers and definition.  But if I could draw? I think I would have been an architect. That was actually #3 on my what do you want to be when you grow up list. #2 was investment banker. After a summer internship on Wall Street, I was amped. Sure glad I didn’t go with that one. #1 – Is what I am today. Crazy thing is. It’s even in my HS Year book.

But being creative – there’s no definition. There’s no boundaries to define you. Whatever comes out of your brain and on to the screen, the page, the canvas, the design is right because it feels right to you. 

With that being said, this post right here is monumental.

I looked on my WordPress dashboard and saw that this is my 300th post. 3-0-0. Say word.

Sure they weren’t all with wordpress. I spent some time over at that other spot till their technical difficulties caused me to pack up shop and roll. But 300 nevertheless. This blog stuff is addictive. It’s worse than crack. Worse than Krispy Kremes. Worse than a good piece of cho-cha.  

At times, I figured I’ll shut this joint down, send emails to a few people with my contact info, Blackberry PIN and roll out. Truth be told, I thought about that months ago. I said when I hit 3-hun-ed, I’m out. But this blog thingy keeps me sane in my insane world. It’s therapeutic. It’s my world outside of my real world.

Let’s be clear though. What I write on here is real. Sure I don’t tell you stuff like I got up, washed my balls, made breakfast and went to work but do you really need to know that anyway? I’m not writing this stuff from my mama’s basement. What you read is what you get, even if you met me in person.  I don’t post pictures only because I don’t choose to but there are a few bloggers who know what I look like. It’s controlled. That way if I see my mug on a billboard one day, I know exactly who to go after! *WARNING* Plus don’t sleep, this world is small.

I know I write super long posts sometimes but you gotta understand, that’s my brain dump and when I finish, it’s that same relief that you get when you’ve held in your pee for hours in the car till you get home.  Ahhhhhhhhhhh…..Sometimes I’m serious. Most of the time I’m cracking jokes. Either way, I hope you enjoy.

One thing I’ve never done on this blog is have a de-lurking day. Well, there’s a first time for EVERYTHING.  So readers, come out and play.  Show some love. 

What’s your name? What’s your sign?
Where you reppin?
What you drinkin’? (I had to throw something different in there)

And if you make it rhyme, oooooooo, I’ma be your friend for life……

I’ll set it off. Someone start beat-boxing….
