DitL of...wth is Ditl?!

Well, technically, the short version is what's in the image above. The military part of me loves acronyms, so I came up with this idea a couple years ago. Unfortunately, after a little Googling, I realized I wasn't the first with the concept, as defined here by Urban Dictionary. However, the nerd part of me was very excited to discover it's a common acronym for this website, which is a Star Trek fan site that's been around since 1998! For not realizing this website existed until now, I should prob have my nerd card revoked, though...

Day in the Life is a blog at its core, I suppose, but I write events surrounding a single day. Some are from my past, some are from my current events. I try my best to write the stories from the perspective I had at that age. What I mean by that, is if I held different beliefs or opinions at that time in my life, I hope for that to spill over in my writing, good or bad. I think I've grown a lot since leaving the small farm in Alabama and I'd like for that growth to be tangible. I'll make no apologies for the person I was at certain points in my life and I don't intend to censor myself. Luckily, I don't think I've ever been a 'bad' person and I've tried not to harm others through the years. Mostly I've just harmed myself and maybe some personal property here and there.

You might notice the Category tags on all my DitL posts. I'll be adding more categories as a write, such as the Nerd, the CNA, the Kid, the Songwriter, the Randomness, etc. These are just a way to help you sift through stories you might like, dealing with different aspects of my life. For example, for 'the CNA' I worked at a nursing home for a couple of years as a teen and I could probably write a blog with nothing but crazy stories from those times! You can look forward to a lot of content spread across many areas of my life...

So, please enjoy reading about my failures and successes, as some are pretty epic and some are pretty hilarious and some are kinda sad. But it's my life, laid bare, so you can get to know me better. Make sure I get to know you by commenting on any of my stories and sharing with friends! Thanks to all my voracious readers out there!!
