My interview with Wendy
1) How long do you think a couple should date before getting married? Explain.
As a rule of thumb, I believe a minimum of one year is required before seriously discussing marriage. Sure, there were people who have married after a month of courting and lasted over 50 years. However, I am firm believer in experiencing all the seasons together before committing to a lifetime. It may sound strange, but people do have different attitudes during different times of the year. You have the summer doldrums, spring fever and as fall creeps into winter we annually hear of S.A.D.—Seasonal Affected Disorder. You only begin to know a person after you go through a year with them.
2) If you could have any career you wanted and had unlimited funds for additional education or training that might be required, what career would you choose?
Professional writer and commentator.
When I first discovered blogs I sought a voice that described what I was/am going through—a single southern guy from the big city living in a small southern town. A different kind of Green Acres, if you will. Finding none, I resolved to take matters into my own hands and be that voice. Additionally, I didn’t see many blogs out there that sought to portray the best and worst—the reality—of living in the South. I’ve since found a few and I’m glad I did.
However, even those Southern blogs tend to focus on news and commentary. My day job requires me to deal in local, state, national, and, at times, international politics and policy. Considering that there is no shortage of blog punditry and that I work in politics 10 hours a day, I wanted an outlet to write something other than political commentary.
Still, I have begun tackling some punditry in my guest blogging over at the Church.
Wow—all time? I couldn’t pick just one so here are a few of my tops—
Okay, that’s enough for now.
Absolutely—Football, basketball, track (pole vault), karate, golf, water ski, snow ski, and my favorite—running.
