For the last two months I have been working on my brand new blog: Confessions of a Cart Jockey.
I have stopped and started many blogs over the years but so far this is the one that I have been most consistent with. There are a couple of reasons for this. I have my own laptop now and Wi-Fi so I don't have to make huge concessions in my schedule to be somewhere at a certain time of the day in order to update and maintain a blog. Two, I have an actual purpose for my blog as opposed to just posting whatever random crap flies into my head.
At the age of 31 I am a retail cart jockey. Most people are probably decent enough to not worry themselves over the direction my life has taken to lead to this point. After all, there is a woman my age at the same store who is the manager. What choices did she make in her life that were better than mine? Who cares? I have bills to pay now and this is what I'm qualified to do.
Confessions of a Cart Jockey is my personal exorcism first and foremost. A self guided therapy designed to help me communicate the events in my day to day life and the feelings they may trigger. For the readers, I want them to take a look at ever single carriage gatherer, or garbage collector, or any person working in any position that you might take for granted and actually ask yourself, "Hmm. I wonder if there's more to him or her than their job?"
