Well, to finish the title, my name is Mike Sullivan. If you are going to come back here every day (please) and read the stuff I have to say then I feel like that is a good thing to know.
I grew up in New England until about 2 years ago when I moved to Florida with my amazing girlfriend. Now I know what you are thinking, we are two sentences in and I’m already mentioning my girlfriend? “Is Mike one of those guys who shoehorns his girlfriend into every topic and can’t seem to go a day without mentioning her?” No. But bringing up Nicole, who by the way, is the most beautiful/smart/funny/talented/driven/fun girlfriend ever, in my first blog ever has to score me some sort of brownie points right?
But anyway, Florida is a place that no man in their right mind would or should ever willingly move to. But hey, I’d rather deal with sweating like a maniac for over half the year than have to wake up an hour early each morning to scrape the ice off of my car, just to wait another 15 minutes while said vehicle defrosts and then get yelled at when I show up late for work. And honestly, all the weird and entertaining shit in this country seems to happen in Florida, so it really seems like the pros outweigh the cons here.
Being from New England you can rest assured that there will be plenty of Patriots/Red Sox/Bruins/Celtics topics here. But that doesn’t mean there won’t be PLENTY of random blogs about things that pop up in my mind throughout the day or things that I personally find funny that I hope other people do as well.
The whole point of starting this blog is not to gain any sort of fortune and fame by any means……although that would be welcomed with open arms. The point is to express myself in a way that I am both extremely excited and paralyzingly terrified of: publicly. Sharing your thoughts on things may seem easy when you are hanging out with a few of your friends, sure. But actually putting all those thoughts into writing AND posting them for thousands..okay, maybe not thousands..lets go with hundreds..eh, lets not get ahead of ourselves..tens of people to see and criticize daily is an undertaking that I never thought I would be able to do. But yet here we are.
So, to wrap this all up in a bow, I think I’ll have some stuff on here for everyone to enjoy. If you love sports? We’re good. If you love comics? This is the place for you. If you want to stay up to date on how horrendous Florida life can be? I’m your guy. Or if you want to just take 10 minutes out of your day to laugh at someone who is still trying to figure out how to do this whole ‘blog’ thing..this will DEFINITELY fit the bill. But at the end of the day, I’m taking a risk and doing something that I never thought I’d have the courage to do, can you say the same thing?
Happy Tuesday everyone!
