I think this will, technically, be my 7th attempt at writing on a consistent basis. That’s if you count the angelfire website I started 9th grade. I’ve looked everywhere on the internet for that, so I can laugh at younger me, yet sadly, I can’t seem to find it. I’ve had a Xanga, Blurty, a few on here (Blogger) and I did a blog when I decided to do a 40 day juice fast. Much like the angelfire site, I can’t find that old Blurty or Xanga to confirm the post count, but on here I maxed out at about 25 posts. On my juice fast blog I didn’t even finish the final post of the fast. The one post that any consistent reader of a juice fast blog looks forward to is the one that I “didn’t get around to”. I neglected to post that I lost a bunch of weight, and what my diet plans are moving forward. I even had my wife record a video of me taking a bite out of an apple. It’s still on my phone. I look pretty skinny.
I lost a lot of weight, and fairly quickly I gained almost all of it back (to be fair, we went to Italy for 10 days a week or so after I ended the fast), but it was an interesting journey and I learned a lot about myself, food, and willpower. Maybe not enough about willpower, since I didn’t even muster enough to finish the blog, or to keep up with a healthy lifestyle. I smoked 2 cigarette while writing this, and still have clothes that in my closet that I can’t wear because I bought them right after I dropped 50 lbs from a juice fast…
So let’s figure it out together. Let’s see if I can stick with this one for more than 25 posts. Not sure exactly what I’ll be writing about, or how often (my goal is 1-2 a week), and I’m open to suggestions.

More than likely I’ll be talking about my reflections on life in the restaurant industry, my dog, Garry Potter, being married to a freelancing filmmaker, or whatever else life throws my way. Either way, feel free to comment below with suggestions or subscribe.
Let’s do this.
