Sometimes you just feel the need to get out of town, you know?
So I'm in the beautiful town of Nashville today, hanging out with my good friends Tre and ReG. That's pretty much the long and short of it. I don't have a lot to say, but I will say sometimes I just feel the need to leave town. So I did. I gotta admit, it feels great. I'll write more whenever I can think of something worthwhile. For now, I'm going to go practice playing my harmonica.

Guess who's back? Back again?
So. . .here we are. I started this blog in college, because it was "the thing to do", never did work out that not being a follower thing and over the years, there's been pictures of the hulk, samples of songs I liked, my thoughts, well really my rants, on any and everything, and of course, my favorite, what I like to call jerk vision. That would be these extremely biased italicized comments that generally say what I'm afraid to say. Or just quotes songs and movies. Whatever. And here I am. A college dropout. Or least I was a college dropout, for now, now I am a college student once more. And I know what you're thinking, didn't college break me? Turn me into a quivering mass of flesh consumed with anger? First, I should point out that while those thoughts are eloquent and a tad bit disturbing, they are rather accurate. Yes, I got broken. Higher learning and academics turned me into a bitter shell of a man. And I think admitting that there was something that I couldn't do, actually made me a better person. Knowing that I can't do everything, knowing that I'm not invincible, that my mind isn't some automatic safety net really helped me to understand something. If I want anything, in this life or another, I have to earn it. Nothing lasts forever, so to speak, but nothing is ever given to you. If someone hands you something, there is always a cost, there is always something that you must do. You may not earn the right to have that thing, but you do need to show that you want it. So now, now I am going back to the very establishment which spit me out, and I am standing tall, older, wiser, and a considerable deal more intelligently, and I am defying it to do me in again. I know that I have what it takes, and what's more, I know that history will not repeat itself, if for no other reason than I won't let it beat me again. So if you like an underdog story, if you want to know if I can take a KO punch and keep swinging, then keep coming back here, because I will continue documenting my rise from the canvas. Or at least start blogging again. With some regularity. Or maybe none at all. I really couldn't say with any definitive statement. But come back. I'll definitely make it worth your while.
