Meet The Blogger: Cajoh

Name: Christopher Johnson aka Cajoh

Age: 43 and counting.

Kids #, age & sex: I do not have kids of my own, but my wife has two. A daughter 29, and a son 25.

Maritial status: Married

1. How many years in your current relationship: 14 Years come September.

2. Have you ever been divorced?: No

       ***If so how many times?:

What do you do for work: Computer Programmer

Education: I have two Bachelors Degrees 

Blogs you contribute to:

       main blog:

Religion: Methodist

Political affiliation- (republican, democrat, libertarian): Independent with leanings towards republicanism.

Basic philosophical leanings (liberal, conservative, confused): I consider a lot of my philosophical leanings to be more zen-like in that I am flexible and lean in many different ways without breaking.

What is your motto in life?: Be true to yourself as your own self true.

Who has had the most influence in your life?: It is difficult to say who, since some influences I may not even be aware of. I can't say that those I have known the longest have had the most influence because of the quantity of influence-- nor can I say those who have the most quality influence either since I do not know what constitutes quality influence.

Why did you start Blogging?  (100 words or less): I have what I consider to be a quite profound personal philosophy. I would like to be able to publish my philosophy someday, but I need to write it down first. Having a blog allows me to write it down as well as know how others interpret what I say.

       *What is the most favorite post you have written on any blog you contribute to?:

Tell us in 100 words about your current relationship: I have known my wife for more than one quarter of my life. I appreciate that fact that we have so many things in common and can get a long with one another quite easily. Even those things that we disagree with, we can be civil enough with one another to respect each other's opinions.

BONUS or OPTIONAL: Tell us something we need to know about you that we haven't covered above. 50 words or less: I used to think that I would NEVER get married. I was one of those people who felt very unlucky and never could find someone to love. Once I was able to concentrate on myself and not look anymore, love just landed in my lap and I have been happy ever since.

Shelle Edit:  I think what Cajoh brings to this blog is a sense of experience.  His writing exudes intelligence about life and it leaks over into his posts here at Real World.  Thanks for writing for us!

Cajoh--what's your Bachelor's Degree's in?

Oh and I think you are awesome! :)

Cajoh said...

OK… I have a BS in Music Education, and a BA in Sound Engineering. It does seem odd to me that Music Education is a Bachelor of Science, and Sound Engineering is a Bachelor of Arts— but I'm not the one who determines what kind of Bachelor degree each program is.

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

LOL. That IS odd. hmmmmm.

That is really cool. Yet you are a computer programmer.

Man of many talents I guess.

"I would like to be able to publish my philosophy someday, but I need to write it down first. Having a blog allows me to write it down as well as know how others interpret what I say."-- That's a good point in see how people interpret you're writing and what or how you say it. I never thought of it that way. Unfortunately, that means I confuse a lot of people. :)

Huge difference.

@Dan… Glad to be "One of the fold".

@Quirkyloon… Sorry to disappoint— I guess I'm not a man eating dog, just a man with a dog.

You have 2 Bachelors??

I have a bit of a funny story (sometimes you just have to laugh at the unfortunate things of life)

But I have been married 3 times.
Once my sister and I were talking about our sons who just were finishing up their Masters Degree

I jest...I majored in Mr.'s
