“Until you have answered the question “Who am I” you will not be capable of living your own life”
― Sunday Adelaja
Hey there! So, you’ve stumbled upon my blog, read a post or two, and thought Hm, I’d like to figure out more about this guy! (maybe because you’d like to know how many psychiatric facilities I’ve been to or maybe you just find my writing interesting). Whatever the reason, I genuinely appreciate you taking the time to at least try and “get to know” me a little, so, thanks.
My name is Jordan Antonacci. I love Imagine Dragons, the smell of hotel rooms, and the feeling of a fire on a snowy winter day. As of right now, I fit the image of what you might call a “struggling writer” traveling the U.S. while living out of my Jeep Patriot–AKA my TravelMobile, AKA my house-on-wheels, AKA my baby.
My love for writing and self-expression through art led to me making this blog. That, and the question, “Is there anyone like me?” Something about myself: I don’t do well with relationships. They require a level of intimacy and connection I guess I find difficult to maintain. No matter who I’m in the room with–family, “friends,” strangers–the feeling of disconnect is the closest thing to me.
In this blog, I’m just a lost boy trying to give some direction to the rest. I know others have to be out there, lost; floating aimless like lifeless bodies in a vast ocean. Maybe I can be your lighthouse, guide you back to humanity. And maybe you can be mine. With the stories I tell, I’ll try throwing you what help I can. If I can’t be your lighthouse, maybe I can at least be your life raft. Don’t sink just yet.
I’m not here to make sales or change the world. All I want to do is remind others that they’re not alone in how they feel, even though it may seem that way.
“We become full human agents, capable of understanding ourselves, and hence of defining our identity, through our acquisition of rich human languages of expression.”
