About Me
For those new to me or my reviews… here’s the scoop: I’m Jay, an author who lives in NYC. My debut novel, Watching Glass Shatter, can be purchased on Amazon. I write A LOT. I read A LOT. And now I blog A LOT. First the book review goes on Goodreads, and then I send it on over to my WordPress blog at https://thisismytruthnow.com, where you’ll find the revealing and introspective 365 Daily Challenge – words and humor. You can also find all my social media profiles to get the details on the who/what/when/where and my pictures. Leave a comment and let me know what you think.

AWARD: One Lovely Blog #2

Posted on

Many thanks to Yellow Fuzzy Duck @ Turtle Desk for nominating me for this award. With a blog name like this one, how could you not go checkout the site? Seriously… Turtles and Ducks. How fun!!

Rules of the Award

  1. Thank the person who nominated you
  2. Share 7 facts about yourself
  3. Nominate 15 bloggers and inform them of the nomination

 

Seven Facts

  1. I taught children how to bowl years ago. I was in a bunch of leagues and had a 200+ average.
  2. I’m currently sitting on my couch half-dressed (as in shorts but no shirt, only 1 sock and shoe) because I was trying to go to the gym when I had a phone call a few minutes ago. After the call, I forgot I was going to the gym and just sat back down to type this post, not realizing I hadn’t finished putting clothes on. I need to finish it so I can get fully dressed and go to the gym. Thought you needed a laugh mid-way thru this post. 🙂
  3. I have hazel eyes. They seem to change color based on whatever colors I wear. 
  4. Other than writing, I have no artistic talent when it comes to painting, drawing, music or photography. I’m bad!!!
  5. I am contemplating getting a sibling for Ryder, my nearly ten-year old shiba inu dog. He won’t be thrilled about this!
  6. I just hit 2000 followers which is incredibly strange given how shy I can be in person.
  7. I used to have 4 piercings. I no longer have any. Some days it’s sad as I want them back. Other days, I want to get a tattoo instead. 😛

About Me & the “365 Daily Challenge”

I’m Jay and I live in NYC. By profession, I work in technology. By passion, I work in writing. I’ve always been a reader. And now I’m a daily blogger. I decided to start my own version of the “365 Daily Challenge” where since March 13, 2017, I’ve posted a characteristic either I currently embody or one I’d like to embody in the future. 365 days of reflection to discover who I am and what I want out of life.

The goal: Knowledge. Acceptance. Understanding. Optimization. Happiness. Help. For myself. For others. And if all else fails, humor. When I’m finished in one year, I hope to have more answers about the future and what I will do with the remainder of my life. All aspects to be considered. It’s not just about a career, hobbies, residence, activities, efforts, et al. It’s meant to be a comprehensive study and reflection from an ordinary man. Not a doctor. Not a therapist. Not a friend. Not an encyclopedia full of prior research. Just pure thought, a blogged journal with true honesty.

Join the fun and read a new post each day, or check out my book reviews, TV/Film reviews or favorite vacation spots. And feel free to like, rate, comment or take the poll for each post. Note: All written content is my original creation and copyrighted to me, but the graphics and images were linked from other sites and belong to them.
