New Beginnings

Well, it's been over four months since my last posting. The lack of posting isn't because I had a lack of things to post about, it's just I had the opposite too much going on. Now, I'm finally in a place where I can comment and get back to posting.

Soooo, why the delay? What could possibly have kept me from posting just a few things on this page in over four months? Well, eight days after my last posting, I was told to leave the house in which I was living. This pretty much marked the end of my marriage of 8 years (and relationship of 13) that produced two wonderful daughters.

I spent about two nights homeless before renting out the front room of an ex-co worker's place. Then started the wonderful task of getting items to live with (e.g., bed) and reclaiming the items from my old residence. I left the 61" 1080p TV, the Windows PC, and a host of other items. There are a few things I'll be reclaiming when I can (e.g., Bug Zapper), but the majority of stuff will be left to the past. This period marked a very interesting time -- shuffling through life wondering how I got to the point I did, trying to figure out where this point is, and how I was going to make the most of it. I barely made it through the classes I was taking and honestly most of the other stuff I was doing just kinda blurred together.

I remember leaching WiFi off of neighbors, and turning on my desktop only three times because the upgrade to Ibex FUBARED it royally. It seems my Blu-Ray burner is the source of all my ATA Frozen errors that have graced this blog. I can get the machine to finally boot when I unplug that device. However, I've found that in addition, I've lost my dual screens and my sound. One of my HDD dropped out of the RAID as well, but it seems to have gone back in nicely.

I finally moved into my own place a month ago. It's back on James Island, a region of Charleston that I haven't lived in since my relationship began. In a way, it feels like I've gone full circle. The only difference is that I'm not back at the place I started. I've also been going through things from the past and reflecting...in some ways it's been good...some ways bad. You see the progression you made during that time, and you also think about how things were and wondered why things went for as long as they did.

I got connected to the Internet about two weeks ago through Comcast's Economy Internet ($24.95/month baybe!!!). Last week was wrap up before Spring Break, so I couldn't really sit down and do this until now. It's weird how things happen when they do/how they do. But I'll face what comes with the head held high like I always do.

I'd also like to thank all the people that got me to this point. Watch this space and where I go now. With your continued help, I won't stop.
