Guess who’s back and better than ever! Surprise, it’s ya boy Sam Elliott!
Welcome to my blog/vlog/whatever the children call it these days. Over the past few weeks, I’ve been struggling with the summer blues (I guess it’s just that time of the year) and decided to brainstorm ways to express myself in a fun and productive way.
I knew that I wanted to establish a platform for myself to produce and distribute the creative content I come up with on a daily basis. However, as my parents like to say, I’m a ping pong ball (THANKS MOM AND DAD). I bounce from one idea to the next until something sticks. I guess that’s just a part of who I am and I’m proud of that. However, it made it extremely difficult to come up with just one way to express myself. Instead of coming up with one idea, I came up with 20. So far I have decided to write a Young Adult novel, perform improv, write, produce, and act in sketch comedy, create photography, and create my own YouTube channel.
To any normal person, this probably sounds crazy, but I’m not normal. I legitimately think I can accomplish all of these things, and I know I will. As the world-renowned philosopher Michael Scott once said, “you miss 100% of the shots you don’t take -Wayne Gretzky” -Michael Scott. This is the best piece of advice I have ever received. And yes it’s from a television show, but does it look like I care? I figure that with a hell of a lot of determination and a tiny bit of guidance, anybody can accomplish anything (within reason… OBVIOUSLY I cannot become Cardi B even though I wish I could).
And that brings me to the point of this blog. After reviewing all of my ideas, I decided that I needed a single place to come back to with my ideas, a home base of sorts. I hope to use this blog to test out my ideas with my friends and family.
I plan on writing that novel, producing those sketches, and creating that YouTube channel with you, my people, along for the ride. This blog is not for the faint of heart. I will explore topics such as television, film, books, food, and much more (very scary topics… boooooo) in hopes to better myself and the people that interact with this site.
As this initial post comes to a close I want to thank you for being by my side and taking the time to read this. But you just wait… This is only the beginning. Strap up because this is gonna be one hell of a ride.
Until next time,
