Who is this Paul Gillespie character anyway? And why am I here?
The first question I can answer for you; the second I could estimate along the lines of “you have good taste and thus want to take part in the awesome that is The Paul Gillespie Experience“, but that’s just a guess. So let’s just worry about the first one for now.
I’m an avid beach volleyball player, which probably sounds odd given the fact that I live in the Midwest where it’s as likely to be 30 as it is to be 80. But nonetheless I’m a huge beach volleyball player, playing on average 15-20 hours a week out at Volleyball Beach. I only get to play six months out of the year so I make the most of it – three to four hours a night, at least three nights a week and often four or five.
I love coffee (the taste, not just the nice caffeine effect) and drink it pretty much every day – for better or worse. Most days when I’m not hanging out at home you can find me in a coffee shop working, playing or just relaxing…with a cup of java in-hand.
I love to write – I pen this main blog and a few others – despite an almost disturbing overuse of punctuation. I’m working on a novel and a couple of short stories, as well.
I enjoy my downtime by playing beach volleyball, hanging out with my six boys or spending time with my awesome friends. I’m a bleed-crimson-and-blue Kansas Jayhawk (despite living in Missouri). I’m a Chiefs fan at heart, regardless of record, and a supporter of the Royals forever.
There you go – that’s Paul Gillespie in a nutshell. Interesting? I like to think so…but I’m interesting enough for me to love and frankly that’s all I’m really worried about.
