Hello, and Welcome to my Website

Hello! My name is Grayson Peddie and this is my first time writing my blog from scratch instead of using WordPress. I was born in Panama City and raised in Tallahassee, Florida throughout my entire life. I am CompTIA A+, Network+, and Security+ certified and I love to get into career in Information Technology. I want to get my feet wet in a little bit of cybersecurity and a lot of network engineering. Not only that, I would also like to setup a homelab with a couple of servers for running OpenStack.

Let’s talk about my hobbies. So what do I do for a living? I listen to music, play games, and watch YouTube videos. I even administer my own network and program my home automation system using Home Assistant. Specifically, Home Assistant Core, although I do have a tendency to refer “Home Assistant Core” as “Home Assistant” because I’ve been a user for about 4 years as of Home Assistant 0.17 and the latest version is 0.108.

So what music do I listen to? Because I’m an adventure type, I like to listen to new age and Celtic music from around the world. (“Celtic” is pronounced “keltic” but with a “c.”) I listen to music from David Arkenstone, Yanni, Cusco, Kitaro, Loreena McKennitt, Clannad, Enya, and so many artists that I could list, but could get rather long. Plus, I like to listen to smooth jazz, symphony orchestra, 40s instrumental jazz, and even 60s, 70s, 80s, and early 90s. Most of the time, I listen to instrumental music. Unlike vocals, musical instruments speak their own language.
