    A first class sergeant in the US Army wants to be my friend on FB. I don't know why. I'm Canadian, and not in the army.

    It's looking like it might finally be Spring soon.

    Just finally finished a completely-complete edition of The Fragile with all known tracks recorded during the original sessions with crossfades and outros and extended middle parts and intros flying everywhere to fit all the pieces and it sounds fucking amazing without sacrificing anything nor forgetting anything. Damn.

    Also, what the hell it's 30C here and it was raining and 12C a few days ago. I love it.

    make sure it's legit. Better yet, don't fuck with it at all.

    I got some requests from "military officers;" i tried talking to them and they didn't even speak english.
    I think they were fucking Russian operatives or some shit.

    Maybe it's a goodthing that I've had so many bad experiences on the Internet. It gaveme that extra push I needed to get off the computer, make newfriends, read more, and work on my projects.

    I just found out that I got accepted into my first choice for graduate school.

    I was on academic probation the first semester I ever went to college. Then I came back as an old, got a full academic scholarship for my last year of undergrad, and now I am accepted to my first choice grad school. Life is wild!

    Just got a black denim vest to customize and turn into a battle jacket. It came pre-distressed already, which I might alter so it doesn't look factory made haha.

    I'm past my prime for shows and merch advertising but I never had one. I'm gonna start now since I have a few exclusive patches from records and magazines.

    The latest MetalHammer magazine exclusive Ghost Grucifix back patch is the star! I just bought some spikes and a few diamonds. Need to up my patch inventory too.

    Little bit of progress...waiting for that goddamn Metal Hammer magazine with the Ghost Prequelle Grucifix back patch to finally begin work on this and to buy more patches.

    Peep the shoulder spikes and the NIN button.

    Someone liked a drawing I did of Amy Winehouse. Maybe those 6 years of art school weren't a waste of time and money.

    At 7:00 AM this morning, the 2.5 months notice I gave to my boss finally came to a close. The job I’ve known for the last seven years mercifully came to an end.



    It wasn’t all bad. I wouldn’t have stayed there that long if it wasn’t at least moderately pleasant. I made some good friends, as well as some decent money. However, it was time for a change. These last two years became more and more stressful and grueling. I felt if I stayed there one second longer, eventually I would unjustifiably just go off on some random person.



    Now in two days I start training for my new job, and at the end of the month, I move to Colorado Springs. Absolutely ready for this new chapter in my life to begin.

    Welcome to Colorado. I moved out here from Burr Ridge IL 20 years ago and have never looked back. Hope you enjoy it.

    I am so glad we live in an era when you no longer get computer viruses looking at porn. The early 2000s were rough. Best Buy got sick and tired of me asking them to fix computer once or twice every year from 2000 to 2009, because Norton Security wasn't catching everything. I got tired of the Geek Squad knowing I like to watch dudes with low hanging balls masturbate, and I was curious about big dick trannies poking girls in the cooter. Them years were rough, and very costly.

    I had a Geek Squad asshole tell me "Get a better virus program. Don't come back here no more." I was like "Bitch, I am giving your dumb ass a job. You better be grateful that you are wiping my hard drives for $250. I am giving your ass business."

    You kiddies in your teens and twenties got it lucky these days. You don't even have to look at porn no more, because sending sex photos in text messages on your cell phone is part of the dating process. Just every day normal life these days.

    18 more days till I travel to Colorado. I’m giddy as all Hell. Especially excited in meeting some new people and making some great friends. I’ve visited Colorado three times in the last two years, and all the people I’ve come across have been some of the most welcoming, friendly, and forthcoming people I’ve come across in quite some time.

    My youngest kid is getting her new wheelchair delivered on Tuesday. We are so stoked, it takes quite a while to get insurance approval, then get all the parts ordered and then get it assembled and delivered.

    While all those details were coming together, she officially outgrew her current chair leaving us carrying a first-grader EVERYWHERE for a couple of months. I was hoping I would get swole af from all the arm work, but I just got tired. Tuesday will be a very happy day for the whole house.

    Jessica Simpson talked to me on Facebook. I have to get my fun where I can. I wear a lot of her clothes and perfumes. She's one of the few celebrities I buy merch from.

    Behold the aforementioned wheelchair and youngest wildling. She's pretty pleased with her new ride. I'm so, so pumped about this. She can push herself in this chair, which will help her be a little more independent. Sorry that the picture is ginormous!

    I'm doing an online diploma in literature for my own personal interest. I write fiction and poems sometimes. I always wanted to study English but my parents wanted me to learn something practical that would lead to a profession.

    EPP: I didn't see your daughter's picture before when I was posting. I can only see it when I log out. Thanks for sharing.

    This is awesome! I always loved Literature and if I could go back to school for anything that's what it would be for. I kind of understand a parent's encouragement for their kids to think practically, but it's really tough to look back and have regrets because you didn't really go for what you wanted.

    I’m sitting in a hotel in Salina, KS after a 10 hour drive today from Naperville, IL. I have six more hours to go tomorrow, then I pick-up the keys to my apartment in Colorado Springs!
