The next stop of my career took me to Charlotte, NC and Carowinds Theme Park where I was to be an entertainer (singer) in the country show. This episode will take you from auditions to the end of that time with some interesting life lessons along the way.
This first episode in a series telling stories from the begining of my working career all the way through to where I am now begins when i was sixteen and I had to get my first job to pay for the insurance on the truck my mom and step-dad got me. I was a bag boy at a Bi-Lo grocery store. I was no ordinary bag boy. I cleaned the restrooms like a boss, fell in love with a cashier, and made a name for myself as an entertainer. I didn't always get along with my bosses, but lessons in life and business aren't always easy or fun. This week's STD Review: Chicago Style Deep Dish Pizza

"Love is like a faucet. It turns off and on." - Billie Holiday
Am I really in love?
There is not much cuter than puppy love. Blind dates are dangerous. What if you're an adult and a very minor child has a thing for you? It all happened in my life and it's all here in the three stories I'll reveal about RJ, LL (Elle), and JW. Do I have your interest? Then take a listen!
"The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it." - Steve Jobs
What do I want to be when I grow up?
Children have big ideas of what thy want to be when they grow up - a Fireman, a Policeman, an Astronaut, a Vampire Superhero. As we grow older, those ideas take on a sharper focus and sometimes they change completely - Local volunteer fireman, FBI Task Force, NASA Engineer, Regular Superhero.
My life has been no different, but the amount of times my "wanna-be" changed, even into adulthood, might seem alarming. I wonder if your history has seen as many or more side-steps in career ideals as mine has.
This is my timeline.
