I'm here but not ready for this!!

Nowhere girl set me up with the blog and it just stresses me out. I'm not the creative writer like my wife, and I can't just spew out my emotions like her. In fact, we are so polar opposites that we often talk about how in the hell we even ended up together. Here are some of the differences that she may or may not have talked about.

Her
Born and raised in Nowhereville
Me
Born and raised in rural Illinois

Her
Athletic and involved in high school
Me
In my small town the most athletic thing I did in high school was detasel corn during the summer . Not joking here.

Her
Partied hard in high school (i.e. drinking, smoking-more than one thing) and got in a lot of trouble
Me
No partying until college. In fact, I never went to the principal's office or spent anytime in detention

Her
Went to a Big 8 school (at the time)
Me
Went to a small, private university in central Illinois

Her
Did not complete her masters
Me
MBA

Her
Hated sorority life and deactivated
Me
Loved fraternity life

Her
Very open and outgoing. She can make instant friends with ANYONE!
Me
Reserved and takes a little bit for me to warm up (like with this whole blog thing)

Her
Very emotionally charged. (As you can tell from her blogging posts).
Me
Tend to be level headed.

Her
Stays current with today's music
Me
Continue to think that the best music ever played was in the 80's by performers with hairband hair

I could go on but I think that I need to take a little rest from this first blog of mine. It's probably better if I start out slow. I'll continue more later and maybe I can even give you some "insider information" about Nowhere Girl that she doesn't even tell you in her blog!

I've got an idea! You give me ANY question about Nowhere Girl and I WILL tell. Go ahead. Ask away!
