Why I Un-Subscribed To Myself.

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Auto & Home & Life Insurance throughout North Carolina

In case you were born yesterday and are still awaiting tomorrow, I used to be a bigger thing around here than Blair Warner's hair in 'The Facts of Life.'  Actually, I was never a big thing, just a mere carbuncle who seemed to be a more interesting read than the status updates of the gal on Facebook who is pregnant yet again. though turned you down numerous times in High School for Sex on The Beach ... or Sex, in General.  And now she is giving it up to a balding CEO with a degree in sticking carrots up his keister at the RNC.  I dig irony.  I loved carrots in High School.

But I'll get to the point.  Since leaving the Real Estate Industry, it has been difficult to remain even a remotely legit piece of the conversation.  While I follow what is going on here and there, I also know that I would not be reading this jive if I wasn't at one point ... formally in the biz.  Well, I do like to read a few and would read them just for shits and grins and come here (to AR) first if looking for a house to call home and a loan to call my own, I have kind of lost interest in me in the meantime.  I used to be a quasi-interesting chap who wrote about mortgages every once in a pale shaded moon and now I'm reduced to writing about politics, humor, and bowel movements ... Please don't confuse the three.

Four!

"If you could take a pill that would make you better at your job and get paid like Steven Spielberg, who wouldn't do that?"

~ Chris Rock~

Apparently, me.  If I was good at the job, I'd probably still be doing it or would have looked into that pill.   Obviously, there is a place outside of Mortgage Lending that may house a passion like mine ... but it is not doing Mortgages.  And that's why I Un-Subscribed. 

You see, I have to prove my worth all over again ... To Me!  And I'll hang around this place until my dying day because of the same reason that I hang around my Mother ... it is my womb, of sorts.  And I love her.

Whatever forum I'm in, lackadasical isn't one of things I am.  Make mistakes, grow, become better than you were when Blair Warner's hair was on the line.  That's my time, doing time. 

The ultimate subscriber, at least to me, is the one you look at in the mirror each day and know would subscribe to you ... even if it wasn't you who was doing the subscribing.

Make it interesting, relevant, valid, and a touch from the heart.  That's a good place to start...

Glad you are sticking around.  And I've had days where other things seem WAY more interesting than what I am doing...

Hey Sardi... I just read yesterday that Mindy Cohn (Natalie from The Facts of Life) is the Godmother to 2 of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's kids.  They bought her a 4 or 5 carat diamond ring that she wears and they fly her all over the place to visit them wherever they are.  Now, there's something for you to consider getting passionate about and aspire to.

BTW, ActiveRain would not be AR to me if you weren't here.  We love ya regardless of your chosen career.

Well, you could pick a topic of interest to at least a few folk here on AR and write about it. Monetary policy, or the decline in the availability of social services in collar counties, or something that gives people info they wouldn't have otherwise. What an opportunity you have.....you could be a disinterested thought leader, untainted by commercial interest....maybe like Oscar Wilde or Samuel Clemens. How cool would that be?

The whole business has gotten a bit boring these days... Dealing with problem people without any loyalty is not worth the time and I myself am steering towards the exit.

politics, humour and bowel movements...

Well, if I have to choose, I'd accept two of the above, cause one of those just stinks to high-heaven, and aggravates me no end...  so if it's all the same to you, I'd love to have you stick around, but you don't need to write about politics.

I try to do all three which is why I post so rarely. Really, you should subscribe again, like Paul Slaybaugh says, "this place is a good catch all of sorts" so keep coming back and [posting whatever you fancy!

Every time I hear THIS SONG I think of your writing.  I hope you "get it".  If not, well, it's still a good tune.

Jason, it is all about phases in life and as you said GROWTH. Growth is good, and in reality whatever you are doing it is all good.

Jason, sweetie, you certainly don't need any advice about links or blogging, for that matter.  Just keep doing what you do so well.  (But, thanks for stopping by, I missed you!)
