Growing up in the Midwest and then going to college in the Midwest and then moving to New York City (concrete jungle where dreams are made of) does interesting things to a person. Still moreso when one grows up as a nerd at a time when being a nerd was not hip or winkingly charming and when the terms nerd, geek, and dork did not have entirely separate definitions and subcultures.
This blog is a fun and (hopefully) funny look at how all of these things have collided in my life and made me the great American hero I am today. It’s not meant as some sort of before and after weight loss infomercial, because all this kind of stuff doesn’t really matter all that much.
At the end of the day, I’m just trying to have some laughs and still look somewhat presentable.
Just a guy trying to get some class.
