I lived for four years in Durango, CO where i set up a record store while working at a lodge. The business dissolved, and, as a result, i ended up with a lot of recorded music. As of November 2010, I've slowly been selling off the leftover records from the store on ebay. I'm sick of hauling them from apartment to apartment. Also, since I've become unemployed, I need to make some extra money. I also DJed at a local college radio station. That was a lot of fun and i'd do it again in a heartbeat.
From around '05 until late '09, i lived in Denver. It was there i completed my degree. I worked as a valet and later in a gigantic record store. When the economy went to shit (it's still shit, isn't it?) I was laid off. I spent all of 2009 collecting unemployment and looking for work until I moved to St. Louis in December. Since December of 09, I have worked 3 different jobs. 2 I left. 1 fired me. I am now on my fourth job cleaning offices. It begins the 8th of July. I am going to try to stick with it and I think I will this time.
My hobby, at one time, consisted of collecting all of my favorite non fiction pieces into a zine. After about four years, I had created 3 zines, each approximately 20 pages in length. I was very proud of them, though i don't think they had the effect I was expecting or hoping for from the people to whom i distributed them. I'd really like to continue my journaling, but I've become so frustrated with writer's block, I don't know if anything will materialize in the near future. My most recent creation came in fall of '09--a piece regarding a friend of mine who'd become troubled around the same time as i was having great difficulty with my own life. I haven't heard from him since we were both in our early 20's. Anyway, I don't want to go on and on about it. A publisher was interested in it, but as far as I know, they never got around to it.
So... onto the next thing.
Looking for friends.
