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.

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...
