2021


It is the 1st of the year in 2021 as I decide to build this blog. I’ve been writing over the past decade while maneuvering through my early 20s. I have found writing to be a form of therapy in addition to a way to externalize thoughts and ideas that keep me motivated and interested in an assortment of subjects from Multi-Media, Health, 3D Art to Philosophy and Physics.

Currently, between working, college classes, and parenting, I’m in the process of publishing my 1st book as I work on my 2nd and 3rd book. Starting this blog is a way to continue to publish my content outside of the normal social media platforms to assure I don’t get “cancelled” and also to give myself the freedom to share my thoughts without the ridicule from the woke class of ignoramuses.

In 2020, my company GMC Productions was put to rest. Susan, my fiance, and myself started GMC Productions in 2015 as a merger between her photography and my video production.  We had a blast working together even through our most abusive clients. Building a company focused on branding could have been my single most successful failure ever accomplished in my short time here on Earth. 

At the age 28, I’ve become competent in accounting, legitimating companies, marketing, sales, online platforms, design, storytelling/copy writing, real estate, insurance, law, construction, health and wellness, and simple time management. I’m no expert yet, but I am competent enough to decipher between a sales pitch and an unbiased source that is laying out pure data.  It would be nice to call it luck that I landed such a wide range of clients to learn about their industry but I’m not a believer in luck.  I have worked incredibly hard to learn what I have learned and obtain the information I have been exposed to.

Many people dread the name of 2020, but for me, it was a year of being reborn. Not in the way of a Christian, but I did endure a form of Ego death. I lost my funding for the Doctorate of Chiropractic program I started in 2019. I definitely struggled in the program. In fact, that program was one of the hardest tasks I have ever taken on. I lost my funding due to my drop/pass ratio going into my 3rd quarter. This dose of reality struck deep as an entire vision of my future disappeared once again amidst my wishes to simply take a semester off as the Covid outcry shutdown all of my study spots with an internet that couldn’t support the live streamed classes.  I remind myself that I chose the choices I made. I am exactly where I am supposed to be with each day, gaining more clarity and optimism than the last.

With the 1st of January coming to an end, I sit in the ER of a local hospital working as a Patient Care Tech, writing this piece.  I’ll begin taking my remaining prerequisites over the next 5 semesters for a different Health Science program at a local Community College, Chattahoochee Technical College.  The exact program I will start in 2022 isn’t completely decided upon but a Medical Lab Technician is in the top of my choosing. I do not however intend on stopping my education with my next certification or license.

Lastly, my family. I’m engaged with my love of my life and our wedding is set for June 30th 2021. My son is with me and Susan full time and doing better than ever before.  One thing is for sure, I am happy. I am whole.

I write, learn, share, and experience the many flavors of life. I spent my childhood chasing sports, the next decade chasing success in the field of Media. I took a period to pursue a career in the Health and Wellness field and now focus on engineering solutions to help make a better world.

  1. So you’re 28 but not one of the woke class of ignoramuses? Diversity? That should get you somewhere. Oh, yes, that gets you White Supremist! So am I. But I’m 86 and a great grandmother; I have only recently been pegged White Supremist. Joking with you. Pulling your leg. Testing you. If I get by with this I understand why you liked my Math or Science post. I guess since you are new, you need followers. I’ll hitch on. 😀
