“And yeah I’ll be in a whole new tax bracket

We in recession, but let me take a crack at it

I’ll probably take whatever’s left and just split it up

So everybody that I love can have a couple bucks”

*Again, it’s not how much you make, it’s how much you spend. Give someone you love a couple bucks today, though.

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.
