Lost Files: Labor Day In Michigan

detroit-146

I had the most fun in Michigan for Labor Day!

Being there reminded me how much I LOVE the midwest and Michigan. It’s just so… me. There’s just such a familiar feeling when I go there, a safe feeling. But then again I’m in “like” with New York and it pushes me to be better.

I went to the gym every day that I was home. The guys at the gym were just all tall and attractive. The men in NYC are really short and because I’m tall, we are always the same height.¬†Ex-Factor happens to be strangely tall but he’s an exception. I rarely find nice tall guys in NYC. Everyone in Michigan is just so tall!

As I was leaving on my flight to come back to NYC, my home for now, I was just so sad. I could see myself having a condo or townhouse and a cool car in Michigan; things that I can not have in NYC at the moment. However, I need to make a living and I can not do that sufficiently in Michigan. Which brings me to the fact that I need to open my own business in Detroit. It sounds far fetched, but why not try to try it. If I fail, oh well, I have experience, connections and a few degrees to fall back on. Most likely honestly, I would still work in NYC until I was able to get it together in Michigan. Why Detroit? The economy is building back up and it’s the hot spot for small businesses. What about money? I will not be starting a company unless I’ve gotten some type of seed competition money. If that never happens, then I probably won’t even attempt to do it. I have to be realistic and smart. So the next step is to get my business plan together. It could just be a cool attempt but at least I have to try or dream. I know there’s more out here for me but I don’t know what yet, clearly I have to try to figure it out.

I do know that I want to help people but I don’t know how to… yet.
