30 Day Blog Challenge: Day One

There’s no excuse for how little I’ve been posting on here when I have a book coming out within the next few weeks. I figured that I’d push myself with this 30 Day Blog Challenge List:

30 day challenge

I’m not going to lie, there are a few of these that I’m not looking forward to at all. But it’s my challenge, and I’m going to get it done; one way or another. Feel free to do this as well. I’m going to need all of the moral support that I can get.

Here’s my first post for the topic:

20 Random Facts About Yourself

  1. I don’t watch T.V. (at all really). I used to think people who said ‘I don’t watch T.V…I do other things’ were both snobby and full of shit. But I got rid of it so I could focus on writing, and I haven’t looked back (although I do feel lost when people talk about popular shows at work).
  2. Okay, okay, I lied. I get The Walking Dead episodes on Google Play.
  3. I’m not nearly as smart as my coworkers give me credit for…
  4. …but I’m way above where my friends see me.
  5. I hate to work out, but do it anyway to rationalize eating out four nights a week.
  6. About that—I can cook, but I’m far too lazy to after work. It sucks cooking for just one person.
  7. I live alone with my dog Yoshi, who pesters me any time I try to cook something. I’m pretty sure he’s going to jump on the stove one day and burn himself.
  8. I Played college football at Colorado School of Mines.
  9. I miss school, but despised it when I was actually there. The grass is always greener on the other side, I suppose.
  10. I suffered a lacerated kidney while playing in a bowl game…worst pain of my life.
  11. Before that, the worst pain I ever suffered was when I busted my head open by running into a steel pole at age five. I ran into it with a hat covering my face…
  12. …and I busted my head open a few more times. Perhaps that explains #3 on this list.
  13. I hated anything to do with literature in High School, but now I’m all about it. It’s weird how things change.
  14. I was always more of a math nerd (and still am). If there’s one thing I’m good at, it’s math for sure.
  15. I truly love my job. I recognize how ridiculously blessed I am to have it. I know where I’ve come from, and I’m beyond proud of what I’ve accomplished. My coworkers think that I’m completely full of shit when I say ‘I’m living the dream’ when they ask how I’m doing. I’m not kidding.
  16. That being said, my dream job is to be a writer and the owner of an organization that helps urban youth get through high school. Lofty goals? Sure. But you have to have goals first in order to accomplish them.
  17. I’m very involved in my community. There’s no better feeling than knowing that you’re making a difference (for the better) in someone’s life with no expectation of them paying you back. I get paid in the feeling I get from doing it, I suppose.
  18. I hate snakes! I veer around them (far around them) whenever I see them along the trails that I run.
  19. I’ve recently become one of those ‘runner guys’. Completed my first half marathon about a month ago.
  20. I love life.
