I am 41 years old, which by todays standards is a little too old to beginning a new career. I am retired from my business effective last year due to an illness that my father had. To properly do this justice, let it be known that I had always wanted to be a writer, but never had the follow through to stay on task. It wasn't until my father passed away last year that everything became all too clear, and I was at the point that a mental break down was soon to follow. So in an very unorthodox quest to quell my anger and sadness before it could consume me, I took to the internet. It was there that I found GAG or Girls Ask Guys. I was in love because as I was soon to realize, My Takes are indeed articles, or blogs. I moved from several good pieces and thanks from there to my website, bustedcogblog.com this as well as Things That Grind My Gears, and The Busted Cog on Facebook, keep me busy. I recently began VLogs, but in truth there is nothing more fullfilling than sitting your thoughts onto parchment.
