Dust it off and fire it up!

It's about time to get this blog back into shape. It's been sitting on the couch eating Cheetos and watching reruns of Home Improvement. Well, not anymore. Today we post again! What inspired this act or heroism equal to that of Sylvester Stallone in Rocky? Simply, I needed a medium to be able to write how I felt. I think my friends tend to get tired of my political rants on Facebook, so this blog is perfect! It's like walking into an old garage filled with boxes full of embarrassing pictures and old journals.
So what can you expect? Well probably politics, gaming, life, and ramblings. I hope you can stick with me long enough to experiment with this. Another reason I rebooted the ol' blog was because of this quote I read, posted by a friend on facebook.

Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure — these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.

~Steve Jobs
I could die tomorrow, and what could I show for my life? Who knows? But I'm going to start today paving my path for the future. I want to do all the things I have wanted to do, with no fear, because... why go your entire life with dreams and goals and then be too afraid to ever try to accomplish them?

So here's to expressing my thoughts and living my dreams. You are more than welcome to join me in my journey.

Not actually my book, or about me, but it has the name of my blog! Weird right?!
