10 Day Challenge - 8 Fears



1. Wasting my talent -
“The saddest thing in life is wasted talent” its one of my favorite Bronx Tale quotes and its really true. To watch talent go unused is a sad thing.

2. Not being around to see my daughter grow up - I’m excited for her future and I want to be around to see it.

3. Watching my mom pass away - for obvious reasons

4. Working a "regular" job when I'm 50 - By then I want to be working for myself or at job that feels less like actual work.

5. Snakes - This fear back to my childhood. I just don’t mess with them

6. Failing as a Dad - although I don’t know what the definition of failing would be.

7. Being Unemployed - Not that its the worst thing in the world I just aint trying to know that feeling

8. Having a mentally handicapped kid - When my BM was preggers ALL I asked for was a healthy child, I didn’t care whether she was a boy or girl, light or dark. Who's nose she had or anything like that. I just wanted a healthy kid.

10 Day Challenge - 9 Loves



1. My Daughter - Shes an amazing kid, even if she drives me crazy

2. My Mom - She raised me to make my own choices and never once criticized me for making mistakes. She gave me the room I needed to grow.

3. My Sister and Niece - My sister is 6 years older then me and my niece is 13 years younger then me. So really its like having 2 sisters and I’m the middle child. They keep me humble.

4. My Cousins - These are like my brothers, I’m both a mentor and mentee amongst them.

5.Watches - You rarely see me without one and its the one piece of “jewlery” I wear

6. Cooking - Its relaxing and gives you an almost instant feeling of accopmlisment. When its good of course.

7. My Friends - I don’t have many real friends but they are always there for me when I need them.

8. Learning - If you stop learning you stop growing and when you stop growing you start dying.

9. Laughing - If you ever meet me in person you know I laugh at everything, Life too short not to enjoy yourself. I crack my self up over little things, I can’t count the number of times I end up being the only person crying laughing at the smallest thing.

10 day Challenge - Day 1


So I decided to do this 10 -day challenge. Mostly because I couldn't think of anything interesting I wanted to blog about. I figured it would be easy but this is actually going to be work. Anyway heres Day 1 where I list 10 secrets which are probably not even secrets.

10 secrets
1. I haven't been in a fist fight since I was 16. I lost it.
2. I haven't spoken to my dad since he replied to this email
3. I'm pretty sure I could give up drinking and not miss it
4. 10 months ago I was making plans to buy my ex a ring. Instead I bought some furniture and a new TV.
5. I'm beginning to hate my job even though I love the people I work with
6. Sometimes I flirt with girls who I'm not attracted to out of sheer boredom
7. Sometimes I look at my daughter and wonder "whos child is this" not because she doesn't look like me but because she doesn't acts like my polar opposite.
8. My best and worst quality is my ability to quickly adjust to my situation/enviorment.
9. I often do things for my own enjoyment regardless of how the other person might feel.
10. At 31 I've had an incredible life and sometimes I don't like to talk about it. I don't want to feel like I'm bragging.
