Day 1 Hello & Goodbye!

     After years of yearning and procrastinating, I have finally left home, and hiked out into the world. Still not exactly sure what I'm looking for, I just know there are millions of opportunities out there waiting for me to find. To stay home and stick to my routine life, even if it were directing me to a "successful" life, would be a true shame. There are so many things I'm ready to learn, ready to experience, my only regret is having waited for so long.
     Now that the waiting is over, it is time for me to start a new chapter in my life. This chapter is to be completely from scratch, unbiased and unopinionated from the Jacob I used to be. It is my mission to create a new image and a new life that starts from within. It is to create a new vision that any individual, including my inner child, would be blown away by. The only thing ever stopping me from doing so was myself. By creating a new me, I am creating a new life. My eyes are always open to information and perspective I can use to feed this new conscious. From food to books I want it all to be new and to get that I need to place myself in new surroundings. This is the main reason I have titled my blog, "New Blood." The other reason coming from a book I read during my first few days of travel called, "Fahrenheit 451." The book is set many years into the future where technology has boomed and the government is about as communist as it gets (bears many alarming resemblances to America.) In the first chapter a woman overdoses and in addition to pumping her stomach, the uncertified hospital workers pump all new blood into her system, reviving her and giving color back to her cheeks.  It inspired me to think outside the box and look for unheard of ways to re-create human life. Any thoughts or advice you have please email me ASAP
     Through my travels I will be open to everything that comes my way and on the prowl to help myself and others. Please feel free to follow me and leave comments. Get ready for controversial topics and hopefully inspiring stories. My goal is to post at least one entry per city.
     I know most reading this were surprised to hear I was gone. I decided to leave and was gone the next morning. I truly apologize for any inconvenience I caused and for excluding any goodbye's! I love you all and wish you well.


  1. Hey Jacob -- I am totally new at blogging so hope I haven't sent the same msg. twice! We would love to have you stay with us when you reach our mountain. It is cold and wet here today -- I threw an extra blanket on the bed in the guest room for you. You are welcome to stay as long as you wish...
