I'm Mike. This is a new journal that I created as a place to vent, share whatever's on my mind, make new friends, and provide an escape from the ebb and flow of everyday life. I'm a 36 year old Registered Nurse trying to make his bones and find himself in Big Sky Country. I'm currently single with no rug rats running around, but it doesn't matter to me if you are or aren't/do or don't.
I moved to Montana from Georgia 2 years ago on a whim, seeking a fresh start and looking to get closer to the abundant outdoor recreational opportunities that the treasure state offers. I love mountains and wide open spaces.
Photography is a passion of mine, and I also love random road trips and adventures and just driving around aimlessly and finding new places to explore.
Politically, I'm all over the map. I'd probably characterize myself as libertarian with a small "l," but I'm pretty tolerant as long as you don't advocate mass genocide or the sacrifice of your first born on a full moon (second, third, and fourth born are perfectly fine). My bar for "I disagree with this person, so I don't want anything to do with them" is actually pretty high.
I have no friends who use livejournal in real life anymore, but I find this platform to be more intimate and a better medium for what I intend to use it for than the more popular social media outlets. So, I'm here to remedy that problem.
