Relationship status: In Love with my Career
Ugh, I signed a baby today. I don't mind signing jerseys, pictures, anything like that for fans...but a baby? Who even brings their baby to a signing? He started crying, but at least we got a picture first. I put it on insta and the results were, well, exactly what I was hoping for. Some girls claimed their ovaries had exploded, and I think that's a good thing? Meaning I have the image of being sweet and caring, when in fact I just want to fuck them with no strings attached.
However, it can attract the crazies too. Like that girl in Philly I picked up after the Flyers game. "Let me have your number, in case I need it." Yeah right. More like, "in case I want to text you every five minutes." I don't have time for that, so I just tell them the team doesn't let me give out my number. That's when snapchat becomes useful. It's perfect, actually, because she can send pictures, but can't bother me with a hundred texts. After a few days they usually get the hint and move onto the next guy, but occasionally the few that I respond to are willing to hook up again the next time I'm in town.
This is possibly one of the best side effects of playing in the NHL. Playing in the NHL is already the best thing I could imagine, so anything on top of that is just icing on the cake. Getting to travel around the country from state to state, staying no longer than a day or two in a city filled with hundreds of hot girls hoping to catch the eye of a professional athlete- it's the dream of every single guy my age. Tinder is probably one of the best inventions, besides snapchat, for a guy like me. I can't imagine anyone actually using it for dating. It's a quick way for a guy to know all the single hot ladies in his current location- perfect for a young NHLer traveling around the US and Canada.
Anyway, I'm Jake and this is my story. It may not be the nicest, but it's not all bad. There are always one or two girls that make you wonder how things might turn out if your life were different. But the truth is- I'm in love with my job, and right now there isn't time for anything else. One day that might change, but for now I'm "an asshole" for not returning calls, and I'm completely okay with that.
Jake is going to go on an adventure and we will see it from his perspective.
I'm just trying this out, and maybe it wont' go anywhere, but I have to try.
I hope you like it!
