Silence is the best medicine.
I have been gone so long I doubt I have any readers left. But just in case, I will fill you in on the details.
Believe nothing unless it's in writing (and has a signature block at the bottom). I got some papers not long ago discharging me from the Navy. Honorable discharge and 20,000 dollars in separation pay. Woo hoo!
I'm still living in Hawaii and I am attending Hawaii Pacific University, shooting for a bachelors in English. I am lost, to say the least. Twelve years of people telling me what to do and punishing me for disobedience to college where no one gives a crap if you show up or do your homework. Or perhaps just the world in general, no one around to wipe my ass. I might start having some medical problems down in the nether regions.
I'm learning to adapt... slowly.
The most important lesson I am learning is how to be an active participant in my own life. I am setting goals and sticking my neck out to see that they come to fruition. I am playing my music and trying to get back into writing. I don't know yet where I am going in life. I wonder if I ever will. Probably not. But I know what I want to do tomorrow and maybe a year from now. That's good enough for me at the moment.
Anyhow, I apologize for my tardiness in writing here. I am going to try to get back more often. I swear! I mean it this time!
