I'm here

I've pretty much stayed away from stuff like this - not really the kind of guy who likes to be plugged in all that much. I've got a cell phone out of necessity for the job and a computer because I've gotta keep my ipod loaded but I'm not a big blog person. Anyway, I met a guy on a job who was really cool - he's married to the guy who hired us - and he just texted me telling me to come over here and talk to him. I just checked out his journal and found out he was drunk when he did it but I don't mind being here. I'm always willing to try new things and if I make some more friends, all the better. Not a whole lot makes me happier than hanging out with people I like.

I'm not sure where I should start. I'm 22, a Libra, single (recently broken up) but not afraid of settling down if I meet the right person. I've had girlfriends and boyfriends and have never seen much point in hiding who I am. Mom told me that I told her I wanted to have a husband and a wife when I was five, so I guess I've never been in the closet. If that makes anyone uncomfortable though, I'll understand. For whatever reason, not everyone can handle accepting people the way they are and I'm not going to judge that.

I'm originally from Tulsa, Oklahoma but I now live in Lubec, Maine with my aunt and uncle. My folks were killed in a plane crash when I was 12 and my aunt and uncle took me in. I got a settlement from the airline that they saved for me until I turned 21, but I don't really know what to do with it now that I have it. So far I'm still working for my uncle who's a contractor. I mainly lay tile and install countertops, but I also know how to do some plumbing and electrical work. I can pretty much do a little bit of everything when it comes to building, so my uncle really likes that I'm sticking around. I guess I could get my own place, but I love them so much and they like having me around, so why would I choose to be alone? So far, I've spent my money on a few gifts for them and some weed for me and my friends, but I've got no plans beyond that. Maybe I'll get a motorbike. All I know is that I'm not interested in going to school or anything. I prefer learning things by living my life and meeting people. That might mean some traveling in my future.

I'm not sure what else to share, but I am looking forward to being here. I rambled a little bit, didn't I? Sorry about that. My aunt tells me that I tend to go on but she loves that about me. She also says that my mom used to tell her I've been a grown man in a kid's body since I could talk, so take that however you like. Anyway, I'm not exactly sure who I'm talking to or how this works, but I'd like to meet whoever's willing to meet me. I "friended" the people who hired me. I hope that's okay. If not, just let me know.
