Where The Heck Have I Been?

My Blog is back… I am finally back.

I’m not going to lie. This is quite the defining moment for me. A moment that I’ve been putting off for about 5 years now.

Where the heck have I been? Let’s just say my life has been quite illustrious over the past 5 years.

Some of the noted events include:

  • I Fell in Love
  • Moved to Indianapolis, Indiana late 2012 which was a complete culture shock
  • Started a small digital marketing consultancy called, “Beastnut”
  • Stopped blogging to focus on becoming a ghost-writer & content marketing strategist for developing brands & small businesses
  • Turned into a complete wine nut
  • Became an avid camping fanatic
  • Got diagnosed with A.D.D.
  • Got engaged to be married
  • Got disengaged (or is it unengaged?) Blah!
  • Started writing a massive amount of poetry & life quotes again
  • Started writing my first fiction novel titled, “The Art of F****** Up – The Life & Times of Boogie-Lo”
  • Re-invented myself
  • Got a few gray hairs magically appear via the whiskers on my face (Don’t laugh)
  • Rebranded my consultancy into “BeastNut Media
  • Started writing a short e-book on Personal Branding called, “You Suck Online! – How to have a Sucka-Free Brand Online”
  • And last but not least, decided to start blogging again on

Of course, there are many other memorable moments over the past 5 years such as the time a raccoon hi-jacked our picnic table late night while we were camping. He sat down, & kept trying to open our cooler which had a boulder on it, while we drank beer & bowed down to his gangsterish ways. Have you ever seen a raccoon throw up gang signs with his little fingers & go Thug-Life in videos online? I have…

We were not going to be the next viral video. Nope.

I can also bring up the time my colitis & I had the time of our lives after eating a jumbo bag of Hot-Cheetos with nothing else in my stomach.

Maybe I could’ve included the time I conquered my fear of heights by Zip-lining for an hour straight through the woods of Brown County, Indiana. Bet you can’t guess how many times I said, “Oh Shit!”

But the key moment to the above mini-timeline? My decision to start blogging again on a permanent basis.

Why? Because I’m a writer… So I freaking write.

Writing is deeply embedded into my soul. My experiences permeate my mind, pumps through my heart, & flows out my pen. My words are part of what makes me who I am. To not write quite frankly, is to Not Live. It’s like Lebron James without basketball, Harriett Tubman without the Underground Railroad, or Hugh Hefner without Playboy. So from now on? I write. I write, & I write some more.
