Sup? I'm Jacob

To my right in that photo is my [smoking hot] wife, Joslin, and the floating hand that we're clanking plastic red-solo-cup-shot-glasses with belongs to my dad, Mark D. That's our wedding day, September 28, 2019, and the reason I am telling you that is because that is the best that I have ever looked on any single day in my entire life. Look at me. Gosh dang-it I look good! I would typically brag about Jos but this is my blog. It's my space (RIP myspace). And, frankly, there are no words to brag sufficiently on that woman.   

 

So, here you are. You have made it this far which can only mean one thing: that you care. You either care enough about me to read the words that I'm spewing, or at some point I said something - something that you relate to, or something funny, or something that appalled you - and you kept reading. Regardless, you care enough about my words. For that, I thank you, sincerely. 

I have done a lot of things in my life. I have worked a lot of jobs in different industries, I was able to play baseball collegiately, and I have lived in a lot of different places. I don't like doing things that I am bad at, and that's the reason I have done a lot of different things. I don't think highly of myself and I didn't know I was smart until I graduated college.  I have always had to justify things as being, "what I need to do," to give me reason to do them. In doing so I would force out things that I liked doing because I was told, maliciously or not, that it was only benefitting me.

This blog is the birth child of a revelation that I had. The revelation that a hot-blooded, 21st century, American man can be both soft and tough. Can be both creative and blunt. Can be strong but also feel. This is my first true creative step in my navigation of life. 

Writing is one of two things in my life that I believe I am good at. One of two things that I believe I have always been good at. One of few things that I actually enjoy. So here, have a beer and enjoy with me.
