Hello, my name is Ryan... -Not the most powerful blog starting sentence, but I have to say I've struggled with trying to open with something clever. Hopefully, it'll get easier here on out. Let me start my blog with an apology. I am far from being a great writer; additionally, this will not be the most entertaining blog that ever was. I merely hope to make note of some events in my life & possibly elaborate on them. I haven't quite warmed up to the idea of starting a blog, but I'm going to try despite my current lack of enthusiasm.
To Whom It May Concern, I'll make a brief summary of my life as to date. I'm 24 years old, a twin, a catholic, & a student of anthropology. I hail from the Midwest, but was born & lived in the Southwest. I love music & movies, and I always try to entertain. I could go on, however that's enough for now... I know it may seem like a rather weak biography, but if I write any more about myself, it'll seem like I'm putting an ad in the personals. (Did I mention I like long walks on the beach?) The fact is I'll talk about myself plenty I'm sure, so I'll spare you from any egotistical introspection, for now.
Right now my life is pretty simple, I’m a full time student here at Ball State University & I’m hoping to complete my last semester. I’ve been sort of given the opportunity to finally complete this goal of mine, so I hope more than anything else to not let myself or anyone else down i.e. Parents, Friends, God, Et Cetera. Oh yeah, lots of pressure riding on me. My brother has already graduated, so I already feel that I’ve squandered my time. I have a dream to travel and teach, so I hope I can accomplish this, but my first priority is school. I have a tendency to get ahead of myself, so I hope to stay grounded long enough to see my objectives get completed. Prior to registering late to classes this semester I was working at the Post Office full time. It was a good paying job and it’ll be there for me later if I want, but because of an icy road it has forced me to take another road in my life. I’m not sure if the two paths will meet up again, but for right now I’m just going to enjoy the ride, so to speak.
Even though school monopolizes my daily life, I still try to find time to socialize. I feel pretty fortunate because of recent events. I truly feel I’ve encountered an amazing person. Although my relationship with this person may be unconventional at best, I have a good feeling about it all. Even though we’re faced with obstacles, I put faith in trust in her and this relationship & I know that somehow it’ll all work out. I love you. With that being said, I think I’ll end this entry.
