Getting Started

I’d guess that there’s no better time or place to get myself motivated to get this blog going. I guess a little bit about me might be a good place to start. I’m in my 30’s and newly single. I had been married since I was 20, but we’d been headed for failure for a while.  I moved out of Iowa to get perspective, for a major change of pace, and to figure out something about myself and found myself in Colorado (for the time being anyway.)

I’ve had a rough time here in the 7 or so months I’ve been here. Struggled with not finding work because I’m either overqualified for what I tried for or am so severely under-qualified that no one wants to take a chance. My health has deteriorated in that time as well, which definitely doesn’t help that job situation. So I figured I might as well blog, since it gives me something to do, and lets me look for content and explore some of those creative things that I’ve been wanting to do for so long. And between that and helping my friend/roommate out with things, I’ll at least be semi-productive while still keeping my eyes open for jobs or remote jobs.

How often will I update? That’s something I can’t answer but I’m hoping for a least every other day, even if it’s just posting something goofy and wishing for better days.

I’ll probably do different content as well, some of my thoughts on things, some recipes that I’m trying to work on and tweak to fit my gluten-free/low carb diet, some of my failed attempts at photography,  crafts I decide to work on, information about a book I’m reading or a video game I’m playing and loving.

This is going to be a rough go at this for a while, but as with all things we all get better at them the more we work on things and actually do them.
