I want to let you all know (all 4 of you) that I have big things planned for this blog... weekly updates, podcasts, the whole shmegegi. Until Twenty-six Going on Twelve gets to that point, I have no idea what the hell I'm going to be talking about.
I named the blog Twenty-six Going on Twelve for fairy obvious reasons. For twenty-six years I have woken up in the same house, in the same room, in the same bed. While most bedrooms go through several makeovers as their tennants get older, mine remains the exception. Boyhood trophies, clowns, posters of retired sports stars (okay fine, only Mike Piazza), and teddy bears litter my room creating what I like to call.... "The Nursery." It is in the Nursery that absolutely zero magic happens. My Old Man always asks me if I'm "Seeing anybody?" and often times I want to walk him up the steps and show him what the hell is going on in my room. With that said, I dont think the Play Festival that I sleep in is holding me back from doing the things I want to do in life (In fact I know its not). Instead, I see the nursery as a safe haven that has underlined a certain amount of laziness which marks my first 26 years of existance. Is it my parents fault? I'm sure it is, but thats up for debate at a later time, and I'm sure my lovely parents will be the subject of many topics that nobody will want to read.
And maybe that's what this blog will be about (this is a grammar free zone)... maybe it will be a blog about growing up and all the shit that goes along with it. Or maybe if that doesnt work, ill just talk about Syracuse football all day, whatever keeps the readers attention. As you can see from this first post, I plan on being very candid and open about my life, and I hope you guys can contribute and add your own flavor to this page. I'm doing this really to let the world listen in on my mind, and the mind's of my friends who I find to be fairly interesting people.
With that said, Twenty-six Going on Twelve is officially a blog, and a serious work in progress. I hope you people all get a kick out of whats going on inside my head, and help this blog become something somewhat awesome.
p.s. I'm aware that Mele Kalikimaka has nothing to do wit this, but I think its awesome
