Who is this Wannabe Rock Star?

So I thought I would tell you a little about myself.

I was born and raised in Northeastern Kentucky. The town I was raised in was the largest town in the county and we were only about three thousand people back then. My great grandfather owned one of the two drug stores in town. When I was young we even had a grocery that delivered to our house. Some stores these days are starting to bring that back but back then it was pretty normal. It was owned by a local couple it was pretty awesome. Because my great grandfather owned a store I knew most of the other store owners as well. (Being a small town everyone kinda knows everyone anyways.)

I was raised in town but we lived on the edge. From our house the next hill was outside the city. We had a creek that I played in daily as a child. Most of the other kids I played with were all boys. There was no girls in my neighborhood that was close to my age. So I learned to play baseball, football, basketball. We played with hot wheels and pretended we were soldiers with our toy guns and army shirts.

Once I graduated High School, I didn't know what to do with myself. (Still don't really know) I wasn't forced to go to school or get a job. But once fall came around I had to decided something. So I decided to go to school. I started in the spring semester at a community college and did ok. So I applied at a state university and was accepted. It was the same school my mother had attended. I started out as a business major and ended up switching to Art. I actually went 4 years there but in my senior year I quit. I was so burned out on school and just didn't care.

After that I worked a bunch of different jobs, moved around a bit, then finally in 1996 I moved back home with my great grandparents. I stayed with them since they were both to the point they needed a little help. We had some girls hired to help them during the day and I stayed with them at night.

I got to spend the last years with them and I do not regret any of it. My great grandfather passed away in '98 and my great grandmother in '01. They left me the house and I stayed there until 2003 when myself and my girlfriend moved to Florida. I left the house with my mother and she still lives there. We stayed in Florida about 8 years before moving to Minnesota so my girlfriend could be closer to her family. My girlfriend is a grandmother and she wanted to be able to see him more often.

So now I live in the Great White North...haha and I find that I like it. The people here are friendly and nice. I don't have to put up with the rude assholes that live in Florida. There are some good people in Florida but there are some prime grade A jerks too. I guess that is true where ever you live but it seems to be better here.

I've left a lot of details out just because I don't want to bore you. But at least you might know me a little better. My politics tend to be fiscally conservative and socially liberal. I believe that Gays and Lesbians should have the same rights as straight folks have. I don't think you should try and shove your religion down my or anyone elses throat. I think you have a right to free speech and firearms but you should have some restraint on when you use either of them. I think people should stop suing everyone over dumbshit and start using their brains for something other then a container for air. I think that people should stand on their own two feet and stop standing around waiting for a hand out. I hate political correctness and people should grow a little thicker skin. I think that a woman has a right to decide what to do with her body and you or I shouldn't tell her what to do. I STRONGLY believe in FREEDOM of religion and you can believe in whatever you like. And sometimes I think the human race is like a herd of cattle, it needs to be culled at times.

If you don't like me or my beliefs then there is the door, don't let it hit you in the ass as you leave. If you don't mind my beliefs then stick around, this might just be an interesting ride.
