I’m a recent college grad going through the motions in pursuit of the American Dream. Follow the chronicle of my experience as I pry, beg, bargain, and hustle my way to that fluffy red, white, and blue cloud. Pleasure making your acquaintance, I am August Chimera, the Madcap. About 6 months ago, my glory years were coming to an end. The dreaded date of college graduation was right around the corner. I had to tear the calendar off my wall. Each day that passed meant I was an unwanted step towards having to become a contributing member of society. I wouldn’t be able to continue gallivanting around thinking about where I was going to go for happy hour. Like many of my cronies, I really didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life. Sure, I’d love to be a professional beer taster, or poker professional, or the lead guitarist of a heavy metal band, shredding solos on stage every night. But, I held an intervention for myself and came to the conclusion that none of those professions were practical. Damnit. One night, like a bat out of hell, an incredible idea hit me. I was at a party and a girl caught my eye. Something about her was awry. Suddenly, an idea for a product jolted into my head. I concluded after seeing another example of “the problem” that my product idea really had a lot of potential. Fast forward 6 months, and I am still neck deep in the development of this product. It’s been a bumpy road, but I’ve gained some interesting experiences along the way. I have started this blog to detail those experiences and write about the current events leading up to the launch of the product. Many interesting characters have crossed paths with me on this journey and each will get a series dedicated to my time with them. The launch of the product to the consumer market is quickly approaching. The product is going to remain a mystery until the eve of the launch; although, I will be dropping hints from time to time. However, I will divulge that the product’s main target is girls in college, and secondary, women in the workforce. I promise that this is a really cool product that you will love! If not, you can throw a drink in my face, or something . . .
