My name’s Brandon. Now you’re probably expecting some kind of “and this is my blog where I share my personal thoughts and experiences with you all.” Well that is exactly what it is. I don’t really have a method of getting my view on everything out into the world, as I am mostly talked over, drowned out, or even flat out ignored. So this is my way of letting my voice be heard.
I currently live in Central New Jersey, in a large, suburban town called Old Bridge. I absolutely hate it there. You will see me emphasize this in my future postings. I commute to school in Manhattan via NJ Transit bus 4 times a week, so you will occasionally see me post about my commute if I see or experience something worth posting about. Speaking of Transit, I am a huge transit enthusiast, I’m what most would call a “transit nerd.” It’s one of the reasons I dislike the suburbs so much-but i’ll get into that in a future post.
I aspire to become a Transportation Planner in the future. I hope to be a part of the change that New York needs to improve it’s transit service for everyone and make it desirable again. Like I previously stated, I am a transit nerd, so I know a lot of things about buses/trains that most don’t and my knowledge for it is growing healthy. If you ever have any question about anything public transit, ask me in the comments and I’ll help you the best I can.
I am very liberal politically. I have a big disdain for policies that the GOP uses to disenfranchise women, minorities, LGBTQ+, and immigrants. You will see me complain about 45, and various Democrats/Republicans who do things to make me say “bruh, how do you sleep at night?” I have pledged to use my voice, my vote, and even my wallet when I can to protest any injustice I see. If something happens in US politics that I don’t like and it appears there will be a lot of that to come. I will make a post on how I feel about that policy, and I will measure my opinion on it on a scale known as the pissed on scale. This scale will measure with”bruh really?” being the lowest score, to *hand roasting motion* being the median score, to “Square up, B” being the highest. You can feel free to discuss your beliefs regarding politics with me in the comments field, as long is you refrain from hate speech and name calling.
My love life is uh….. I’m currently single and there are times where I will post about being lonely. I will more than likely go into this next week (might do a post on Valentine’s Day and being lonely). I urge you guys to definitely drop any advice you have for me in these posts. I need all the help I can get!
I will use this blog as a means of purging my thoughts too. While this blog may be focused on me, I want it to be interactive with everyone who reads it. I am open to free discussion as long as it doesn’t involve attacks or anything inflammatory. I think my readers should be part of the conversation and should definitely offer their opinions and viewpoints without worrying about being attacked. So civil discussion only.
Anyway, this is where I leave you guys for now.
Stand Clear of the closing doors please.
