It always difficult to try to describe yourself without making yourself sound like a complete loser. For example, I could very easily tell you that I am a broke white guy, living at home with his lesbian mother, working a job that I truely do not like, just waiting for my ticket for something better. As true as those statements might be, they dont summarize me in the slightest. I am going to try to summarize myself, with a little help from my best friend.
My name is Dave. Although I am not where I want to be in life, I have a good grasp on everything and I know where I want to go, and how I want to get there. I do work a job that I do not particularly like, but everybody has to start somewhere. I am currently a dispatcher and a driver manager for a nationwide trucking agency. The pay is good. The benefits are excellent. But its not my cup of tea. I would much rather be doing something physical, or mentally demanding than sitting at an office desk for several hours a day instructing grown men what way to turn. (Yes believe it or not, men DO ask for directions). My particular job is a start to what promises to be a great career. With that said, I am not certain if I want to work in the transportation industry all my life. I went to college to become an officer of the law. Therefore, on a whim, I decided to apply for a position within the City of Louisville, KY as a Corrections Officer. I figure one of two things may happen. I will either get the position, and finally reach my goal / dream. Or two, I wont get the position, and I will still be working for a great company with plenty of room for professional growth. Either way, its a win win situation and I couldnt be more lucky to be torn between the two scenarios.
I do live at home with my mother, and no. I wasnt trying to be funny by saying she is a lesbian. That is her choice, and who am I to judge her for it. It does get a bit disturbing to see her and her partner, but I have learned to get over that. I live at home with her, not because I am lazy, or not motivated, or anything of the like, but because its convenient. No that doesnt make me a freeloader, as my sister would be happy to try to point out. I pay rent. I buy my own groceries. I have chores and jobs to do around the house. In return, I have a place to stay that is relatively close to my office, clean, warm, etc. Its not a bad life. And truth be told, even though she wont admit to it, my mother likes having a man around. (Insert lesbian joke here).
And yes. I am broke. Name me one 23 year old guy with rent, car payments, car insurance payments, cell phone, netflix accounts, etc. that isnt broke. Again, I make damn good money, and I have a lot to show for it. I may not have wads of twenties in my pocket, but I dont lack for anything, and rarely do I go without what I want.
