Emerging Gay Blogger: My Life At 25

Hello, nice to meet you. I'm Brandon - dog dad, accountant and gay blogger extraordinaire. I grew up in Pennsylvania and recently moved to the sunny state of Florida with my best friend Ezra (picture below). Me and Ezra came here to start a new life, make new friends, and go on new adventures (there may have also been a hidden motive to be close to the beach and Disney). Whatever the motive was, we're doing great, and we love it here.

So why blog when I'm surrounded by beaches and pixie dust? Well, honestly, I have recently been looking back on my life and asking myself, "How did I get here?", "Where am I going?", and "Can I ever go back?".

Usually I would just pop open a bottle of wine and head to the bathtub to ponder over these thoughts in silence. Until recently when I realized, "A lot of twenty-somethings are probably asking themselves the same questions right now. And maybe they're not in a bathtub. Maybe they're on a plane going somewhere far away. Or sitting at a restaurant by themselves. Or chasing a bus. Or hiding under a table from their ex. Wherever they are, they're probably on the internet." And BOOM! Here I am, still in the bathtub, still with a bottle of wine, but writing my thoughts down instead of bottling them up.

I find value in people sharing their thoughts with one another and being transparent about how they feel. And that is exactly what I plan on doing here - sharing my thoughts with you, and being completely transparent about how I feel. I'll share some stories, talk about my daily rituals, and always wrap things up with a little advice to take away. I want this blog to be a place where readers can see what I'm going through in my personal life; not so that they can become invested in it, but so that they can learn from it.

I plan on sharing some personal stories on this blog, so I want to get better acquainted with my readers. Let me start by sharing a list of things I love, things I hate, and things I don't understand:

Things I love:
  • Killer Whales

  • Champagne

  • Gummy Bears

  • Ezra

  • Mean boys

Things I hate:
  • Snakes

  • Looking out windows at night

  • Too much cilantro

  • People that have a full song as their text tone

  • Mean boys
Things I don't understand:
  • Radiation Poisoning

  • Bitcoins

  • How cameras work

  • How "Lost" ended.

  • Mean boys

I know this introduction to my life was brief, but I have a lot of time, my glass is currently full, and I'm ready to share with you all, the story of my twenties. So with all of that said, I want to formally welcome you to "Advice for your 20s". This is not a blog about me, this is a blog about us. So stick around, twenty-somethings, and we'll take this road together.­­­

Do you love, hate, or wonder about any of the things on my list? Comment below!
