I've been reading AoM for about 3 years now, but had shied away from forums of any sort--now that I live in Los Angeles and have less friends than I do fingers, I figured it'd be a good time to dive in.
I'm living in LA to pursue my vocation -- being a storyteller. In this day and age, the best stories being told are on Television, and unfortunately that means living in a city that's not my absolute favorite in order to have a chance to tell the stories I'd like to tell. I'm currently working for an e-commerce women's fashion start-up, which pays the bills but also makes me want to tear out my (beard)hair most days.
I've learned a ton of great stuff from AoM over the years and picked up some great habits -- keeping a pocket journal that I try (sometimes unsuccessfully) to write in everyday, using my own customized Ben Franklin Virtue cards to make sure I'm keeping on the path I'd like, and exactly how to tie the Shemagh I'd been incorrectly draping over my face for all these years, to name a few.
I'm hoping that the Forum will give me an opportunity to interact with like-minded dudes who're looking to better themselves in any arena they feel they need to improve in.
My name's Harrison, and that's my intro.
Appreciate it, it's good to be here!
welcome...and appreciate that you are pursuing those dreams in LA.... keep us posted as to how it goes.
