My name is Daniel Jordan. I live in Logansport, IN. I have lived here my whole life. I wouldn’t call it a very exciting town but it is home nonetheless. I have been married for seven years, happily so, but we have faced our difficulties, as would any marriage. I have two very energetic children at the ages of seven and five. They certainly keep me busy. I feel like a sixty year old man trapped in the body of a thirty-three year old. I love being a Dad, it’s what I’ve wanted to do my whole life ever since I was a child myself. And that too has it’s difficulties, but i love it!
I am generally a quiet fellow, a rather laid back character, perhaps somewhat strange. There are many thoughts swimming around in my mind but putting those thoughts into words by voice seems to be rather difficult for me. Shy would be an understatement! I am not one for confrontational situations. Perhaps I remain quiet as to not offend anyone. Call me a wimp, if you so choose, but I stand on my own two feet and don’t take any crap! Maybe I am just too damn lazy to speak. After all, twenty plus years of smoking has certainly made me short of breath. Whatever excuse I throw out there, I simply don’t like to talk!
I suppose my shyness is a contributing factor as to why I decided to test the waters in the field of creative writing. This way I can put my thoughts into words exactly the way I want to be heard. When engaged in conversation, my responses come short and sounds…un-intelligent. I have been told by many that I should take up writing. I guess my status updates on Facebook came off as interesting to some people. If my ramblings seem to entertain people, why not give it a shot?
I am a hard working individual but I often wonder when my hard work is going to pay off. My family struggles to make ends meet, living paycheck to paycheck. Where I come from, where I am, and where I am going all blend into a seemingly never ending financial struggle. To be quite honest, I hate money and what it represents in the global community. You have to have money to be somebody. It costs money to do everything. If you want to better yourself, you better have the money to do so. Money is the driving force behind everything. All I ever wanted is to just live comfortably. I don’t need to be rich, I don’t need a bunch of fancy toys. Just put a roof over my head and make sure my family is well fed and I’ll be happy. I hate how guilty feelings kick in when I make any purchase, such as a pair of shoes. It just seems like a sad, sick world when putting clothing on your back affects how well you eat.
That is me and a few tidbits of where I am coming from wrapped up in a nutshell. I hope you enjoy my posts and any feedback (positive or negative) is much appreciated.
