About JRoyd: More like a confession.
Hello all I’m Jim or JR for that matter. No I don’t go by JRoyd, but it was rough finding a domain with any combination of my name by the time I jumped on the internet and blogging band wagon. I bought this domain years ago and am just finally getting around to doing something with it.
I’m from Pittsburgh; I used to say I hated this city. I don’t, overall I like Pittsburgh. I’m not a fan of close minded people but they are everywhere I suppose. I’m not really a cynic, it’s a complete front. Truthfully I’m a full on dreamer Even Though I don’t like to admit it, I’ll do just about anything for anyone. I just might bitch about it while I’m doing it.
I went back to school and am working on eventually getting my PHD and becoming a neuropsychologist. That idea alone may make me a little crazy.
I’m not sure why you would care about any of this, but I hear that a website should have an about page so here it is. Like I said it’s more of a confession. I’m a writer; I don’t feel like one though. You won’t find my name on any bookshelves. I did pay for my home purely from writing so I guess I am indeed a writer, but I’m kind of a puss. As a matter of fact I had an editor just recently tell me to quit being a puss and put myself out there. I’m using this blog to aid in that process.
If you want to know more about me chances are you will eventually find it in the litter that I call blog posts. Who knows what I may actually share here. Probably whatever, I feel like at the moment. If I discuss my medical crap don’t take it as whining. I’m proud of myself is the actual point. I know there are a lot of people who have it much worse than me. I just get irritated by these douchebags that whine about stubbing their toe or some minor crap and use it as an excuse to go get fucked up and shirk their responsibilities. Those people are usually the biggest shit talkers too. Oh well, what goes around comes around.
I may come off as a dick in some of my posts or even most of them for that matter. Don’t take it too seriously; it’s all in good fun. I’m not the nicest guy in the world and do not claim to be. Overall though I am pretty much a big sensitive bastard.
One last note writer or not, don’t expect wonderful prose or shiny perfect grammar. I’m relaxing when I write this stuff, not worrying about an editor. If you see something that really bothers you feel free to play grammar police and I might even take the time to fix it. Also I probably make money from any advertisements or product recommendations on this blog. I will not recommend something I don’t have experience with but I do not always have control over what is shown in the actual advertisements so as always Caveat Emptor. Honestly do you trust everything you read especially on the freaking internet.
In the end I am me, plain and simple. Most people who think they know me do not. There are very few people in this world who have a real idea of who I actually am. Chances are the few close friends I have may even be shocked by what I include on these pages.
