I’m a 43 year old gay man living in New York City. I’m a lighting designer by day and a waiter by night. Or maybe it’s a waiter by day and a lighting designer by night. I guess it depends on what day you ask me. I started this blog to document my move to NYC and it’s two years later and I’m still in NYC and I’m still blogging so I guess that means things are going well. The blog is a mixture of my daily excursions, rants on waiting, dealing with incompetence, designing, boys, drinking, travels, drag kings, and sex. So step inside I’m sure I’ll do something to offend you.
It’s now three years later and boy have things changed for the better. I’m still a waiter in a high volume restaurant in New York. I hate it much more than I used to but it’s how I pay my rent so what’s a girl to do. I’m a trained lighting designer and am actually quite good at what I do. I’m often to intimidated to put myself out there and it doesn’t help that I’m twice as old as my peers. This is all stuff that’s in my head but once again what’s a girl to do. The good news in my life is that I met a boy at the beginning of the year (2009). His name is Adam and he’s the best boyfriend that I’ve ever had. Sometimes I wonder what he sees in me but there is no accounting for taste. So as this blog thing continues I’ll continue my stories about New York and work, but I’ll also give you a glimpse into my relationship with Adam. He knows about the blog so I can’t be too revealing.
I’m now a 50 year old gay man living in Maine. I’m the general manager of a hotel/restaurant in a small tourist town near Portland. I’ve been with my partner Adam for 6 years. I have two cats named Violet and Judy and I live a very boring, mundane perfect life that thrills me beyond belief. I’ve never been happier in my life and am quite content for the first time in my 50 years.
We are just about to buy our first house. We close this week. Oh. My. God. What the fuck are we doing!!!
