Damn, it’s been a hot minute T-Nation. Most of you don’t know me, but I’m glad to be back. I am posting this because I’m turning my life around to head in the right direction and desire a sense of community in lifting. Not asking for anything but acceptance and accountability.
I’m 22 and I’ve loved everything about lifting/conditioning since I was 11. Played football, baseball, rugby, wrestled, ran track, and competed in PLing. Currently, I’m coming off a rough streak in my life where I lacked direction and developed a drug problem.
Recently, I decided to leave college for personal/economic reasons and make my own path. I’m a very intelligent person, but I’m sick and fucking tired of pretending to be something I’m not. College is not for me at this point in my life.
I’m having my knee fixed on 5/24; afterwards, I will obtain my NSCA cert to PT and get an additional labor job to rack up hours and cash. The city I live in is well-off economically, so opportunity is pretty abundant. I will be posting my rehab/training here in the meantime.
I doubt most members will read this, but thanks to those who did. Some will criticize, but fuck them. I keep what is useful and reject all else.
