I use the term “day job” loosely because over the past year my personal life has been flipped upside down with crazy work schedules. So what follows is not only a brief history/ insight into my personal life, but also an apology to all of our fans and sponsors that have been with us here at HLO and any and all of you that have enjoyed reading my ramblings in my blog.
Around the end of September/ beginning of October last year i was asked to work on the graveyard shift by my full time employer. This was explained to me as being a short term change that should only last a couple months at the most. Due to unforeseen issues that were not with in anyones control, that couple of months turned into almost a year of me working on the graveyard shift. This was not a major issue with only a few exceptions. As anyone would have to being moved to a different time frame for work; we had to make a few changes to our daily living arrangements, but a more “painful” issue was that this change took place the week after opening weekend of bow season here in Virginia.
This caused me to only really have about 4-5 days of hunting last season, which unfortunately I was unsuccessful in harvesting any deer that year. I was also limited in my time to write for or promote Headline Outdoors as I would have liked. So as we were at the beginning of our latest adventure in launching our first season of our television show, i was pretty much benched fro the season. So to you, our fans I would like to say I am sorry. “Work got in the way of having fun” as a close friend of mine used to always say.
Here’s to hoping this season will be better and more successful due to the face that in the past few weeks I have been able to say “Good Bye to Graveyard” ,and “Hello to Daylight”. For the past few weeks now I have been in the process of transitioning to a full time Day light position at my job. Just in time to make preparations for this years hunting season.
It is my hope that this new change will give me more time to be in the woods and add some footage to our up coming second season of television. I felt as if I had let you all down with my inability to contribute more to our online presence, but in the coming weeks as I get more and more back into the swing of a “normal” work/life balance, I feel confident that my presence will be felt a lot more on all of our social platforms.
Thank you all for you continued support and for understanding my lack of contributions over the past year.
Stay safe and we will see you in the woods.
