This is a leap. Or a step.
I don’t know what I’m saying. Let’s just call this a move in a direction more expressive and productive than whichever way I was previously heading. That said, I have no idea what to write in this first post, so I’m just going to wing it and let the words flow out and we’ll see how this goes.
I’m Jordan. I was born and raised in the beautiful state of Colorado. While I’ve come close to leaving a few times, I have a hard time seeing myself living anywhere else.
I think I see the world differently than most people my age. It’s alway been that way and is a quality I noticed when I was younger. By that, I don’t mean that I “#livefolk” or whatever people “do” nowadays. I just try not to be a sheep.
Sometimes I do things.
I am happiest in the outdoors where I can bond with the chroma of nature’s frequencies on a plane we are yet to understand. Just kidding, I’m not one of those types, but I have found a large portion of myself in the outdoors. I’m not an adrenaline junkie or anything like that, just someone who appreciates the land for what it is.
Photography has been paramount to who I am. I love being behind a camera and recording a moment in time to share down the road. I’m not neurotic about photography, or one of those people who thinks they’re an expert, I just like taking pictures.
I also like music. Listening to it is great, but I also like songwriting. I’ve played the guitar for something like a decade now, in conjunction with writing lyrics. That is an area I’m more reserved, but easily one I am most emotionally invested in.
Also, I used to draw a lot. I kind of came to a halt on that over the last two years or so—I blame college’s boundless ability to suck all the fun and creativity out of me through pointless busywork, but that’s a rant for another day. Also, there’s always the chance that I’m just a little lazy. Perhaps I’ll get that going again, it was always fun.
So that’s pretty much what I like to do. When I’m not occupied by those things, I’m either sleeping, overthinking, or working. Yep, that’s that.
I can’t eat gluten. Not by choice, but because I have celiac. I’m not one of those. It’s a big part of how I’m remembered and identified by people. I hate talking about it. That’s all I have to say about that.
Well, I think this is a time for brevity. There’s a good chance I’ll open up more as this blog thing progresses. The main purpose of this is to be a creative outlet for me to share my stories and works, to hopefully sell some prints, talk about some equipment, and to ultimately make a more productive use of my time. I get lazy.
No clue when the next post will be, as I’m indecisive and struggle committing to things that I can’t get in trouble for not doing. So I guess the next post will be soon? If you’ve read all of this, then thank you. I’ll try not to disappoint.
