Re-Evaluating My Blog

Standard

After consideration and a long night of rolling around in bed I had a brilliant idea.  This idea was based around my blog and the content I provide for any and all readers that happen to stop by.  I thought instead of being a whinny college graduate in hope that people stop by to listen to my complaints and problems why not create actual content? So that’s what I am going to be doing on a daily basis.

The idea is to create a blog that covers different topics on each day.  So 7 different topics a week and the themes will be recurring each week.  The content will be based on popularity on the web/in the news/my picking/fan polls. Listed below are the themes for each day.

Monday -> Motivational Monday (will have a little speech from myself and also a link to a video or sound bite to help nudge some of you in the right direction for the week)

Tuesday ->Tech Talk Tuesday (whats going on in the tech industry or whats the biggest trend in the tech)

Wednesday -> Whats App Wednesday (the most popular and useful apps for both android and apple devices)

Thursday -> Throwback Thursday in Gaming (talks and discussion about great classic games)

Friday -> Fitness Friday (since I love fitness, Friday will based around what my workout consisted of for that day and also what my fitness goals are and how they are coming along)

Saturday -> Movie Talk Saturday (this will be a 2 part blog the first blog will talk about my predictions about upcoming movies and another part based on my movie recommendations to watch on the weekend)

Sunday -> Ketchup Sunday (I’ll talk a little about what is going on in my)

 

Alright, well there it is! The new content update that will be my blog!

Thanks for coming and have a great day!

Hey How Are Ya?!

Well, here I go! In this first attempt to create an appealing blog to everyday people why not tell you who I am.  First things first, my name is Ethan Barnes and I am 22 years old. I love to workout, listen to music, and play video games. I am one of the most competitive people I know and sometimes it bites me in the ass.   I love sports of all kinds but mainly football and collegiate wrestling.  My favorite color is blue, my favorite type of food is Mexican, and lastly my favorite season is fall.

Yeah that’s me right there…actually circa summer 2014 during camp for football. I myself have recently graduated from college less than a month ago.  I was a psychology major and ended up completing my Bachelors Degree.  You know throughout college I expected that as soon as I walked across that stage with degree in hand, the world would be my oyster.  Oh how I was wrong!

Almost every high school student imagines going to college and then landing their dream job right after they graduate and never having to take orders from anyone but themselves or their boss.  Well long story short…WAKE UP STUPID! For some of you/them this does come true, but for people like me, you begin the Real World Grind.  This includes moving back home with your parent and or guardian, waking up everyday to do the chores you haven’t had to do since you went off to college, and my favorite the endless hours of job hunting.

I currently lead a rather simple life lately (yawn), my day starts around 9:00am EST and ends around 11:00pm EST.  I can say my days have gotten pretty routine since leaving college.  I wake up, make my one egg and blueberry oatmeal for breakfast, and then plug away for 2-3 hours looking at job posts.  After successfully completing and filling out numerous job applications I turn off the family computer and proceed to get dressed and ready to leave my parents house for the gym. I then proceed to spend around 2 hours of the day at the gym and return home.  I shower, eat my lunch and then go sit by my phone for the rest of the day in hopes for a callback whilst also doing my daily chores (dishes, clothes, lawn care, and trash disposal).  I then end my day with some video gaming and a nice dinner.

This has been rinse and repeat since graduation on May 14th.  Needless to say my life has become pretty monotonous with little change.  This is the exact reason I have decided to create this little blog of mine.  Maybe by sharing my experience post graduation I can either help people learn what to expect (or even a what not to do guide), be a shoulder to lean on for others, and possibly provide some of your lives with humor.

So thanks for coming by and hopefully you come back tomorrow around 6:00pm EST for my latest installment!
