Day 1: Who am I?

Who am I? It seems like such a simple question, but lately I feel like I just don’t have the answer anymore…

5 years ago I knew. I used to play guitar, video games, was proud of my job as a pizza delivery guy, did decent in my college classes, had friends, had dreams…. had a general grip on where I was in life.

But all that changed with the conception of my daughter. I dropped out of college so I could begin working full time to help raise my faughter, I no longer had time for friends of hobbies (and soon loss touch with both), and most importantly I had to learn how build a relationship with a girl I had only known for a few short weeks and originally had no plans on being with…

5 years rolled by and my looks may not have changed much, but inside I feel like a whole different person. Parts of identity have been stripped off to make way for the family life until all that’s now left is a barely functioning human that knows how to work, tries to be there for his daughter and fiance, and that’s about it.

I guess I started this diary to try to reconnect with who I am. Maybe if I record my daily thoughts and adventures I can start to see the patterns…

But it’s late. So my journey will have to wait one more night. One more empty night.
