Well, I just got some lovely news a little bit ago. It seems that the house I was going to move into with my friends just got put up for auction because our landlord missed some payments and foreclosed on their loan. So instead of the “Why is your site called Mine Road?” ramble I was going to write for today I’m going to write this out of sheer annoyance. This auction would be so bad if a) we had known about it before a few days ago b) if our landlord hadn’t said it was taken care of and wouldn’t be happening and c) if it wasn’t TOMORROW. Yes, you heard right boys and girls my place in Columbus is being auctioned off tomorrow. This is more than slightly annoying as I had planned on having a domicile in that area for the next 6 months. I have already told clients I would be available to them as a resident of Columbus at least 2 weeks a month. I was also looking forward to being in a city slightly larger and more cultured than the one I currently reside in (Steubenville, OH) at least half of the month. Not to mention that my friends would have been my roommates and good times would have been had for all. We may all get lucky though and the person who buys the house will allow us to stay at the current rent until the end of the lease. Well I really should get back to work now as I have to get some designs done before the end of the day.
At one time that motto above ruled most of my life, especially the part that dealt with my “blogging” and writing. I often did this because I never felt that I had anything of interest to say and that if I did no one would really read it. To be honest that is still as true today as it was in 1998 or so when I first start my venture into the world of blogging. Back then it was called an “online diary” and I hand edited it instead of using programs like WordPress and I enjoyed it much more. But then what is better to an angst ridden teenager than being able to share his angst with the rest of the world? Now I am slightly less angst ridden (or so I like to think) and coming up on my 23rd birthday in 16 days. The reason for writing has changed though. I’ve found that since graduating from college last year my written skills have begun to deteriorate at an unparalled rate. I am pretty sure that this is because I don’t have four or so papers a week due anymore and tend to only write in response to emails and to comment snippets of code. So in an effort to curb the deterioration, share some of my life and maybe even a little bit of Internet lore with those who happen to stumble upon this site I have started this little project.
So to anyone who reads this I hope you enjoy it and welcome to mineroad.com and a little window into my life.
