“I don’t believe in politics. I’m an anarchist, I guess you could say. I think people could be just fine looking after themselves.”

*What are your thoughts on politics?

“I was raised in a really strict household in terms of health. We were never allowed to have candy, chips, or soda. I should be more regulated about my exercise, but thankfully I’ve had really good dietary habits. I’ll have a cheeseburger, but I don’t indulge in junk food ever. My favorite forms of exercise are Pilates, swimming, and walking.”

*You have a choice today between Pilates, yoga (again), or swimming. No chips, candy, or soda!

We can’t win over everyone, but Harry Potter showed us that we can triumph in our relationships with loved ones. Harry Potter always had a support system of family and friends to help him.

*Reach out to your support system of family and friends for support today.

“Control your reputation online, or someone else will.”

*Search yourself online and see what could keep you from your dream job or that would keep customers away. Control your reputation online. Have a nice cigar to reward yourself.

I was born in Northwestern Pennsylvania and lived in a trailer park. I was raised by very conservative and religious (Wesleyan Methodist) parents. By some miracle I graduated college and moved to Florida. I have been a public school teacher since 1995. I have 7 years until I can retire. I was married in 1999 and divorced in 2001. I remarried in 2017 to Kate - 21 years my junior. Some of my life experiences as a 46-year-old, white American male, will come through in my writing, but the majority of this daily journey will be dedicated to improving myself, and hopefully you as well.
