Welcome to my blog. You’ve either been following me since I started 5 years ago on Blogger.com, you’ve just stumbled across this thing today, or you fall somewhere in between. Which – to me – signals that you may or may not know things about me.
This is where that all changes forever!
Most of what I write is intended to be humorous. You may or may not think what I write is funny. This is fine by me. This blog started as a Top 10 List blog. Every once in a while I’ll throw one in there. I don’t have a lot of emotionally stressful life situations to draw from when writing but I write about my life experiences.
You’re so young! What kind of life experience could you have???
Well, for one thing, I picked up and moved half-way across the country on a whim by myself. I mean, I gave myself (and everyone else) 2 weeks notice, but I’d hardly say it was part of a plan.
I’ve been in a couple of serious relationships (by my standards) through which I’ve learned a lot about myself and who I want to be; who I want to be with. I learned my capacity for feeling emotions and expressing them is very disproportionate. Writing about this (and writing in general) has helped equalize this disparity a bit.
I’ve also been in a handful (or three handfuls) of non-serious relationships.
I write about those, too.
I sometimes write about running. It can be annoying. You can skip over those posts. I really won’t be offended. I found out I am “insulin resistant” in June of 2013. All it means is that I had to change my eating habits, be slightly more active than normal, and take pills (possibly for the rest of my life) in order to avoid becoming a Type 2 diabetic.
I’m honest to a fault. I don’t hide my shortcomings or my successes. I will gladly tell you my opinions and know that you may disagree. This is fine by me, also.
I’ve had my fair share of run-ins with the law. I’ve used my sister’s ID through college. I’ve had a creeper peep in my 2nd floor windows. I’ve been part of more than one lawsuit. And I’m sure there’s more legal fun in my future.
Things of note:
I moved to Florida after I ran away from home (to Miami) for a week due to a breakup and drunkenly decided to apply for jobs. There’s a lot of story in between the applying and the moving which you can read some of here.
If you go out with me – even just one date – and you do something stupid or inconsiderate, expect it to end up on this blog. Similar to Taylor Swift, I draw inspiration from dates. Also similar to Taylor, I will write about you negatively. BUT, unlike the country songstress, I will change your name and any other identifying factor. You’re welcome. I’m intensely positive. I love adventure. I’m impulsive. When I’m not being adventurous and impulsive (and even a little bit when I am) I am a fierce fan of control. Over myself. Not you. You can do whatever you want with yourself. You do you, man.
Why “…More Than Sweet Potatoes?”
A simple and cute story: When my sister was pregnant with my nephew, I spent a lot of time with her taking her to appointments and cooking vegetarian food packed with protein. One night I made her sweet potato fries and this conversation happened:
Sister: These are delicious. I love them!
Me: Thanks! I love sweet potatoes!
Sister: You know what I love more than sweet potatoes?
Me (joking): Me??
Me: Aww! I love you more than sweet potatoes, too!
It makes me happy and smile…so it became my blog title.
I post every Monday and Thursday (they go live at noon eastern time) usually.
I like when people like and comment on my posts.
I like you.
