Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Smedley. I'm a 25 year old urban dweller. I'm an IT specialist at a large financial company. Life is good, but a bit solitary right now. I may be in a rut. My routine has become a mesmerizing drone and there are no surprises. I see the same dull people day in and day out.
The only exception is my commute to work on the train, but train etiquette requires that one simply ignore everyone else around them. One is expected to stare into the distance, into an imaginary horizon. I am always wearing my headphones. I've got my I-phone and my I-tunes and my e-mail to keep me busy on the train. Sometimes I read on the train too. It's a good time to settle into a book.
I've got some hobbies and some interests that keep me busy. I still play keyboard in a band that I've been in since high school. We have an 80's retro sound and a loyal following. My band mates have been more and more distant lately. One of them just got married and Joe, my best mate and our drummer, just had a baby. You just can't play a show without a drummer. So, things have taken a bit of a turn lately and I think that they will continue to change. Who knows what the future holds, right?
