This is my first blog post....EVER!
Writing has never been one of my strong suits but it's definitely something that I'm currently working on getting better at. I figured what better way to challenge myself than to share some of the things I write with the general public and take some criticism. Especially those that are constructive.
This leads me to the point of this post which is to outline a few of the reasons I started this website. For one I'm a basketball player and I was at a conference/meeting/educational forum that dealt with life outside basketball. One of the messages I got from said conference besides saving my money and investing wisely was to make sure my E's balanced out. The E's in this case are Entertainment and Education. The message was to make sure that even though my life, inevitably, would be consumed by basketball, and most basketball players spend their time outside of basketball working on getting entertained, an equal amount of time should be spent getting educated.
This website is one of my many efforts to balance my E's out. Unquestionably it's possible that the majority of the content you see on this site could seem like entertainment but the reasons for that are a lot of the things I find to be educational may not be what you find to be educating. Also, a good portion of the time I dedicate to educating myself is spent reading and it takes some time to clearly outline, describe, and convey what I learned from what I read in writing (I'm working on that). Also I find taking trips, seeing different parts of the world, and having new experiences to be extremely educational as well. Hence, this website is going to cover a wide array of subjects and activities. Expect a lot of pictures, videos, music, writing, motivational quotes...etc.
Besides being a basketball player which takes up most of my life, I'm an amateur web designer (really amateur...this website is my best work), camp coach/counsellor, and a professional life liver. By life living I mean do my best to live in the moment and enjoy the present; enjoy what life has to offer today and take everything else in stride. Of course this is done with a strong consideration for what the future has to offer as well.
It’s all about growth and progression and I hope this is the beginning of something great.
Thank you and I appreciate your support.
