When I began this blog about 3 years ago I chose to interview myself as a quick way for people to know about me. Since I’ve gone so long without posting, I figure that I will do the same again:
Do you have a nick-name? Kinda. My name is Brad. Just Brad. However, once I get to know someone well, it seems they automatically call me Bradley. Hence, the name of this blog.
Marital Status: I’m married to one of the most wonderful man I have ever met. I love you, Maurice.
Children: I have a beautiful 14 y/o daughter who lives with her mom in the Midwest.
Political: Very Liberal Democrat.
Religious Affiliation: I am Buddhist, and a Unitarian Universalist. Currenly I’ve gone back to college to major in Master of Divinity. After that I will be a Unitarian Minister.
Any Piercings: Just my two ears. I am not a fan of piercings on the rest of the body.
Tattoos: I hate them. The human body is beautiful, why cover it with tats.
Greatest Regret: Not having spent more time with my daughter.
Pro Life or Pro Choice: It’s not my place to tell a woman what she can or can’t do to her own body.
Opinon on Death Penalty: An eye for an eye leaves everyone blind.
Number of Siblings: There was a total of 7 kids in our house.
What if I won a Million Dollars: The first thing I’d do is buy a house for my ex wife and my daughter.
Favorite TV shows: I watch very little television, but I do like Glee, Wipe Out and Ru Paul’s Drag Race.
Favorite Movies: Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Network, Blazing Saddles, Rear Window, Pulp Fiction
Favorite Books: I love reading and there are several that I love, but I’m blanking on their names right now. Grapes of Wrath is one of them
Why Have I been on disability for 5 years: I’ll post the entire tale later, but here’s a quickie version:
Started with Seizures, which led to agorophobia and depression. It was determined that I was bi-polar and began receiving drugs. LOTS of drugs. They never know for sure which drugs with each person, so most end up starting a drug, quit that drug, starting a drug, quitting that drug. It takes a long amount of time (sometimes a year or more) to find the drug cocktail that is right for one individual. I still have manic and very low depression spells now so I guess I should be happy. I am still dealing with depth perception and falling alot. I’m not allowed to drive or even ride a bike, so it’s taking the bus everywhere I need to go.
Where do you live: I live in Los Angeles County in the city of Lomita.
Thats pretty much all there is to say for right now. I hope I get all my readers to come back, they were a great bunch. I also hope to get more readers in the process.
