My name is Ben Durst. I am a 23 year old male who took this year off from college. The thing is I hated college and I don’t plan to go back. I’ve spent most of my life thus far in a haze of depression and OCD. I’m not going to go into specifics in this post but let’s say I’ve made a lot of lifestyle changes to deal with these things.
I’m not to happy with my current situation. I’m living at my parent’s home in CT since I left school about 6 months ago (as of 5/17), I’m working at a Starbucks and a health food store, I’m on anti-depressants, and I haven’t had sex for about 18 months. I’m going to change these things.
So what’s the purpose of this blog? This blog will help me, the writer, as well as you, the reader. Writing is cathartic, and will allow me to develop my ideas and my goals. Having a blog will also keep me responsible for what I write. Especially know that you know my real name. If you follow along you will be sure to pick up some useful strategies and ideas since I’m constantly learning, reading, and trying new things.
This blog will be a real time look on how I go about improving my life. I always have several projects going on at one time in the areas of money making, health, fitness, and dating so I want to chronicle my journey, and perhaps inspire some of you in the process. I also plan to overcome this chronic depression and keeping track of my life through writing will help me accomplish that.
Later posts will be about specific goals, timeframes, plans of actions, etc. I simply wanted to introduce myself to you here.
