I have a great job that I've been dedicated to for over a decade now. That has allowed me to purchase a home, travel around and have fun. It is a bit of a stressful job, but I break free when I'm not there and try to make the most of my free time.
As I've gotten older, it's been harder to get my friends to join me in my adventures. Families and such, I suppose.
I am an only child, grew up "working class", was an honor student/under-achiever, was a Boy Scout and earned the rank of Eagle Scout, went to University but didn't take it seriously enough so I never graduated, hosted shows on cable access, landed a great job, ran a webzine, put out an actual zine, I'm on the IMDB for a crappy movie that a former friend made, I'm the world's only Robb Zipp who is all over the internet and is easy to do a google search for or you can just find at about.me/robbzipp .
I'm the jolly drunk fat man you've always been dreaming about.
I also do a podcast now about stuff I do with my friends. There's lot of talk about beer and comics and other nerdy stuff. I enjoy it.
