My first post

This is my first blog post ever. Maybe you already read the about me but I will tell you a little about my self. I am a 29 year old male that just moved to Bloomington, Idiana. I moved here because my girl transfrered to Indiana University as a psychology student. Other than her and my 4 year old son I don't really know anyone here yet. My neighbors seem nice but I haven't really gotten to know them much.
The biggest thing in my life right now is looking for a J-O-B. It seems there are a million worthless minimum wage jobs but not very much of anything else. Being that my girl feels it is absolutely necesary for my son to be in day care minimum wage is not going to cut it. Usually I can at least get a job as a delivery driver and make almost decent money but I've put in 8 or 9 applications and haven't even recieved a call yet. Maybe I just need to give it a little more time. I've only been looking for a little over a week.
Before I lived here I lived in Germantown, Maryland. Germantown is in Montgomery County which is a suburb of Washington, D.C.. I lived there since 1991. Pretty much it's a shithole but it was my shithole for the last 15 years. Before that I moved around a lot as a kid and it was nice to have an area that felt like you knew it. That is the hardest part of living all the way out here. I feel like I don't know anything about it. I don't even know where to look for a job because I don't even know where anything is.
Anyway that is the situation I am in now. In the future I would probally expect a lot of opinionated ramblings. I might be opinionated but given enough time, I can usually get people realizing that I'm right. Unless your my girl Abby. She always tells me my opinions are ignorant, close minded, and foolish. However, she's always wrong so her opinion doesn't matter. I love her anyway.
I'm sure by the end of this nobody is still reading but if you are let me know.

Hello LennyP. I can't beleive that this is your first blog... I've been blogging for the better part of 10 years and this is the first time you've though... "hey, maybe i should try that"? What ever was the motivation for this sudden urge to express yourself? Maybe you should try making a Myspace page so people can get to know you better. Anyway, great start and i'll be watching. :-)

Hey what's up Lenny?? Yes you are so right about having very opinionated ramblings! I remember many times at Jerry's trying to convince you to change your mind on things, but you NEVER DO! :-)
By the way, I never thought I would see you blogging, but it's cool that you are. Take care!

Lenny,
Enjoyed reading your blog and I think you've done a great job expessing yourself.

I found you on Blogger Talk and I'm also new to this blogging thing. My intentions are to help other new bloggers with frequently asked questions, I have a long way to go but it's been fun documenting my journey and then starting this new blog 'Helpful Resources for New Bloggers".

I feel for you in the new job market. Have you applied for county or city positions? There would be a variety of positions to choose from and they usually have great benefits.

Good luck!
