I am a Dad, a Son, a Brother and an Uncle. I consider myself polyamorous. I am an IT Manager, a Gadget Enthusiast, a Cleveland Sports Fan, a Craft Beer Drinker, a Music Listener, a Poker Hobbyist and an Occasional Karaoke Singer.
I analyze each of these aspects of my life more than I should. I'll probably discuss all of them here. If you are just interested in one, look at some of my tags in 'My Pages' above.
It’s Sunday morning and Sir is off to work, which means the computer is mine and I can finally recap my Friday night date with The Actor.
The Actor checked in a few hours ago. Seems he had too much wine last night and is in a world of hurt. He didn’t seem to appreciate my offer...
I can sum up how I feel about my looks with two quotes.
"I’m not beautiful like you, I’m beautiful like me" -Joydrop (lyrics from the song...
I took today as one of my use-it-or-lose-it vacation days, slept in, drank coffee, cuddled with the cat, and watched Supernatural. Sir is in...
I got a coffee today that I did not plan on getting just so I could stand behind the women in line with dark hair and a dark complexion who was wearing black nail polish for a couple minutes. I’d say that is a borderline obsession.
I’d say that if I didn’t believe it had crossed that line of obsession already that is.
I think it’s important that non-monogamy is something everyone involved in a relationship is on board with. But I also think it’s important that monogamy is something everyone involved in a relationship is on board with.
But I don’t like this weird gap where people will ask a non-monogamous person if their partner is okay with the kind of relationship they have when they wouldn’t ask that sort of question about a monogamous relationship.
I can understand, but I used to love this question. When I was with my exSO and would get this question, I would ask them if their spouse was ok with their style of relationship.
Needless to say I received a lot of confused looks. Their response would be a mocking, laughing, “of course” and I could see “freak” or “weirdo” scroll across their eyes as they looked at me.
Then I would ask, are you sure?
Have you ever seen that younger family member on FB and her pictures with her new boyfriend, whom she is of course madly in love with already because he is the nicest and sweetest guy in the world, and just from looking at his picture you know he’s a douchebag?
3-6 months later when that same family member is on FB complaining about what a douchebag her soon to be ex-boyfriend, or on again, off again boyfriend is, do you then quietly say you knew it and wonder why you didn’t say anything?
Or is this just me….
Everyone is supposed to have a 5-year plan, or at least that is what I have always been told. I have never had one, have just done the best I could on any given day. I am not much of a forward thinker, but in my defense I do possess enough fluid intelligence to adjust to any situation as necessary.
That being said, I have decided that by the end of this year, my five year plan will not only be in place, but have been started. It is time that I start working to make myself happy and content instead of everyone else above me on the corporate ladder, and no, I do not want to climb the corporate ladder either. I’m not a fan of politics in any regard, especially not corporate politics.
I have constantly heard that in any 5-year plan, you want to envision where you will be and work backward. This concept never made sense to me, but as I think about it, I think it can. I want to be a writer. That’s what I will be doing in 5 years. Since I know there is no money in the trade to be easily had anymore, I will need money and probably name recognition as well. Here is where I begin working backwards.
Acting. I have always wanted to do so, but have never tried. Acting in TV or movies should provide me with plenty of money and name recognition I will need to become a writer. The problem with this plan though, is that I still need name recognition to become the type of actor I want to be, versus toiling away in local theater productions…no thank you.
This is where I come to the part of my plan I need to set in motion now. I will apply, go on and win Survivor. I have always been a huge fan of the show and know that I can win. That would give me a little bit of money, but more importantly, the name recognition and contacts I need in order to break into the world of TV and possibly movies.
There you have it. My five year plan in which I will become well known enough and rich enough to live comfortable and do what I want to do with the rest of my life. Now I just need to create a video and actually apply to be on Survivor.
I will need a passport as well.
