Who Am I?

The countdown at the bottom of this page testifies that there's a little over 24 hours before I turn thirty. I'm sure in the next couple of days I'll wax on about where I've been these past three decades and where I plan on going, but one thing I'm going to have to deal with is that little bio in the column to the right. Just in case you're blind [I'm not sure whether or not the Braille version of my blog has this text printed] this is what it says:

A homegrown Cincinnati boy [westside!] who loves his mama, good music, and living life, I've been blessed to find the most phenomenal woman in the world and somehow convince her to be my wife. I'm on a lifelong journey with God and welcome people to join me along the way. I’m almost a jock, because I play and watch a slew of sports- from soccer to golf to basketball to softball [yeah, I’ve officially given up]. I’m almost a geek because I own an I-Book and read books by dead authors who get no love. I’m almost a musician because I’m a hack guitarist and sing harmony with the radio in my car. I’m almost thirty because . . . um, well . . . I’m almost thirty. I’m self-centered, egotistical, and insecure. I’ve got a long way to go and a short time to get there. I’ll keep you posted.

So shortly I'll no longer be "almost thirty" so it's time for a re-draft.

Although it's a pain, I actually enjoy crafting this bio. However dreadful it is, I'm forced to describe how I perceive myself . . . or at least how I want you to think that I perceive myself. Either way, it's a good exercise, one that I'll put some thought to.

So my challenge to you is for you to describe yourself. Who are you? What makes you tick? What are your strengths? What are your weaknesses? What are you passionate about? Try it and let me know what you figure out.
