Let’s start with an introduction, shall we? My name is TJ. I’m 23 years old. I was born and raised in Las Vegas, NV, and I’m a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (commonly referred to as Mormon). Currently, I’m studying computer science at BYU. Only here’s the problem: I enjoy too many things to want to tie myself down to just one. Sure, computer programing has been fun, but it’s also been very stressful and I’ve questioned my commitment to it as a career path. So I figured this mid-college crisis would be a perfect time to start my blog.
My other interests are incredibly eclectic. That’s a fun word.
For example, I recently finished writing my second novel! It’s a YA fiction, and I’m currently seeking representation. (if anyone knows a lit. agent, let me know!) I’m also getting into comedic writing, both for sketch and screen-play. I love music and singing, and I’m pretty well known among my friends for being able to quote almost any line from almost any movie at any time. And I frequently do! A while back I discovered this emergency training stuff and learned how to pick locks and stuff for zombie-apocalypse mode. I also was watching lots of home-renovation shows a few months back and decided that would be way fun. I love traveling (I’ve been to Australia and Europe, and lived in Africa for 2 years as a missionary) and my bucket list includes visiting all 7 continents (I’m up to 4 so far). I also find baking really fun, but not cooking. I recently learned there is a difference. My mom tells me I have a good eye for interior design, and she frequently consults me on her remodeling projects. I also got into Dressing Your Truth about a year ago, and find energy profiling very interesting and useful. AND I’m a visual arts minor, and I really like graphic design (I created the header image for this blog). And I speak French fluently.
Basically, I just love to create and learn new things! I have some friends in the blogging world, and I was talking to one of them about my new blog, and what it could be about. Because most blogs are “about” something. Like cooking. Or fashion. Or movie reviews. Or craftsy DIY stuff. But I dont’ really have any one thing that I’m great at. I love doing TONS of different things! So that’s what this blog is about. Tons of different things. Whatever I’m working on or thinking about that day or week or month. It could really be anything.
My hope for this blog is that it will help me explore and share all the new things that I learn or try. Plus, it can give me a place to simply share my everyday thoughts or experiences, whether or not anyone actually reads them. Actually, I’m pretty sure my mom will. So there’s one person reading this at least :)
That’s where I’ll leave you for now. I don’t have all the answers to life, but I do think I’ve got a pretty good handle on living. And I think that’s enough.
