The story of a young potato starts here. At a ripe age of 27, Sean Erixon begins the online journey of blogging. Originally, I didn’t know what I wanted to fill my about page with. Part of me wanted to explain how I came about to create this blog, because it is certainly not my first rodeo. But why dwell on my previously failed blogging attempts? Let’s discuss the creator, let’s discuss me. I have often been described as humble, a bit overly kind, and outgoing. I only agree with two of those terms of endearment. Humble and a bit overly kind. While I may be outgoing, I am personally not the social aficionado people make me out to be. In fact, I prefer to be a bit of a lone wolf the majority of the time. It’s nothing personal against others, it’s just simply my preference. This could be why I prefer writing over speaking.
Let’s dig a bit deeper into what this is for me. I love hockey, food, and some nerdy things in between. Some of those nerdy things consist of PC gaming – to really disconnect from the real world for a bit, and I enjoy writing as well as digital image editing to fuel my creativity. That could potentially be why I am fascinated with jump starting this blog(again). I’m also attempting to go through a bit of a health kick currently, but I’ll try not to bore the blog down with kale(I don’t even like kale).
When I say I’m a hockey fan, I legitimately mean I appreciate hockey at every level. From the juniors to the pros, I enjoy it all and appreciate the game’s fundamentals. While I may have some favorite teams, I truly do not despise their rivals. Sorry fellow Flyers fans, I’m not your guy to chant “Crosby Sucks” with. Actually, that may depend on how many bottles of Yuengling I’ve had. But to be clear, I rarely drink to begin with.
Who doesn’t love food, am I right? Thankfully my job allows me to travel a bit which enables me to try many different styles and types of food. Who doesn’t appreciate a mom and pop shop’s deductible bites when it’s 900 miles away from home? You already know I’m not a fan of kale, but I’m also not a fan of anything sea food related(sorry Sushi lovers). But for now I’ll share my favorites; I love a good cheesesteak, buffalo wings, and the many varieties of french fries. Pizza and burritos would round out my top five if you must know, and there’s no better day to end a meal with a sweet dessert(preferably chocolate related).
Technology has always held my interest since I’ve gotten my hands on it. It started with video games, playing on the original Atari and Sega Genesis. Then I had a handful of experiences with computer games on a super old Mac my uncle gave me which introduced me to Sim City 2000 on the floppy disk, and my love for PC gaming just continued to grow from there. And since I’m a part of the generation that grew up with smart phones, you could say I’m a bit fascinated with how much tech can be packed into your pocket nowadays.
So you kind of got a brief overview of me now, and you’ll continue to learn more about me as I continue to write new material. I sincerely wish I had a plan for this, and had a vision of what I would want this to be used for. However, this is a bit of a “play it by ear” kind of thing for now, and just keeping it going for as long as I enjoy it.
For my fellow nerd friends… You can watch me on Twitch, follow me on Twitter, and game with me on Steam. I try to check my social media, but I don’t check them nearly as much as my inbox. You can always send me an email the 90’s way:
