My First Blog...

Not that this needs to be overly dramatic...but here is my first blog. Less exhilarating than my first step, my first word, my first day of school, or my first kiss...but it's a first nonetheless.

So what is a blog? And what should I say?

Well...I'm 26 and I'm living in Boston, MA. I've been there for 4+ years and I recently had a 4 year anniversary at work and even more impressive...a one year anniversary with my girlfriend Martha. I love living in Boston because it's so different from where I grew up in Oregon. I grew up in a town where you'd be pulled over for driving 32 m.p.h., I'd never honked my horn or given another driver "the finger". Now it's common practice.

To be honest...what I am most proud of in my life is the decision to move out here. I took a risk...a big risk to move 3000 miles from friends, family and everything I knew to be familiar. Thanks to some great people I've met out here...Boston has become my home. When you are faced with adversity...you tend to learn a lot about yourself.

We are faced with so many decisions each day that it's hard to feel 100% about your direction. You know how people tell you to listen to your heart...and it will guide you. Well...my heart seems to be a little shy and doesn't like to talk much. I have a very difficult time finding my inner truth. I do, however, know for sure that I have a strong desire to be extremely successful...in relationships, in work, in every aspect of life. I feel blessed with the opportunites I have been given and I feel I've made the most out of life up to this point. I just want to (as Spike Lee would say) "do the right thing."

I guess it all comes back around to that monumental first step, first word, first day of school, first kiss, or first blog...the only way to do it is to try.
