Jared 2.0

Jared Weseman

My twenty-third birthday was a couple of days ago. It seems hard to believe that I've already been at it that long, and while I have had a great life in all realistic and measurable ways, I'm not the person I want to be. This past December I graduated from Michigan State University, in just months my lease to my last college-era apartment will run out, my current roommates and friends will move on, and I will be forced to make meaningful decisions that will immensely effect the progression and outcome of my life.

There are many aspects of my person that I dislike and would like to change and many opportunities and experiences in my future that I intend to realize. I want to document the conscious changes and decisions that I intend to make and I want to record some of the progress thats already been made.

I have progressed more as a person in the last year than in the previous ten. Unfortunately, I feel I have plateaued in that progress and need to aggressively leave my complacency behind and begin to realize my potential. 

Today is the beginning of a series of posts about personal experiences, and mental, physical, emotional, and lifestyle changes that I have made or intend to make in my life. I'm calling it Jared 2.0, the second phase of my life, a chronicle of becoming the adult I intend to be. I believe that continuous personal improvement is imperative to a healthy and happy life. Fighting the things you struggle with until you overcome them is the only way to progress. It's what separates people into two distinctive categories, leaders and followers. I want to be a leader. 

I am counting on you, the reader, to keep me honest, and to keep me on track. My greatest aspiration for these posts would be that they not only benefit me, but also affect positive change in your life, even if in the smallest of ways. It may sound naive and self-important that I believe I could make a difference in someone else's life. It probably is, but I don't care. 

I hope you'll join me on my personal journey and join in my strive for continuous improvement. Here's to the hope that each subsequent year is better than the last for all of us.

Welcome to My New Website!

Jared Weseman

Hello there, welcome to the new This is my new home on the web, a single place where I can collect everything I create and every way to contact me in one place. 

The site includes a Blog,  my most recent Videos, and my most recent Podcasts. It also includes a detailed about me section with communication methods. The site is the one place to go for anything about me. 

The most important section of the new site in my mind is the Blog. I have always wanted to blog regularly writing both short and more detailed posts about my life and my thoughts. You can expect a wide ranging selection of content on the blog. Ranging from a column on the latest tech announcement, to a cultural commentary, to reviews of the latest music, to deep philosophical questions, or something as simple as a hilarious video. Everything is fair game, and I intend to post regularly. Think of it as another outlet for my thoughts, because who doesn't want to know my opinion on everything?

If you have any ideas on what you would like to see me discuss, or any questions, please leave them in comments below.

So I say again, welcome. I'm glad your here, and I hope you find what you are looking for.
