So, I'm kinda stupid. I wanted to quit the restaurant business and go back to school, possibly indefinitly. i know several people who have done it, and it seems to have worked out for them. However, my good friend and business partner has beaten me to it. It's all good, I'm proud of him, he's going for masters. Cool. So i...

Aw, thanks for the well wishes about the whole 30 thing. I'm just pretty sticked to not be dead yet. I went back to school. I really love it, but it wiped out my savings, so there's a price, but I am hoping it will pay off in some way shape or form.

I bought my first pair of Docs today. I have wanted a pair of docs since I was about 15. Unfortunately, from the time I was 11 yrs old to the time I was 15, my age was my shoe size. Talk about a growth spurt. I have been working continously since I was 14, so I could afford them, but I never found Docs...

Vegas is...a trip. It's a great place, and also one of the most fucked up places on planet earth when it comes to true joy...but I did indeed enjoy the naked oil wrestling! wink

I think I might have bought a house and I am not even entirely sure how it happened. My aunt is like a second mom to me, and she gives me entirely too much credit for getting her current restaurant off the ground. This is my family's thing, we're business people. So when her restaurant blew up, she helped get one of my...

These two girls were hanging out at my restaurant, and they started to complain that the bathroom smelled bad. I asked them if it smelled like crap, and they said yes it smelled like shit. I said, "Like shit. Really. In the restroom. Wow. Imagine that." I almost started to ask them about this bit I read in the Onion once, that if it smelled...

Yeah, no shit, I am always saying things at work that push the limits of what is acceptable, and somehow I get away with it, but who knows for how long? Ah, and as for time, it's true, sometimes you just have to wallow in it to feel better, and some thinsg do improve yes yes yes, but others, they always leave their mark. Get a profile pic! kiss

See, that pic is the updated pic after like a week of Prednazone...it was gnarly....I'm happy to have survived it! Yeah, don't worry 'bout your chem burns. They probably just make for cool stories!

So I have been reading about alot of you youngsters getting out of school for the holidays, and I am starting to miss being in school. I am going to have to get out of the restaurant business soon (either leave or get thrown out), and I am looking forward to going to grad school. I can't honestly say for what, but the real...

I took a huge seven year hiatus from school, and now I've gone back. Hence, the biblical lit for a class. You're right. There's prostitues, incest, killing...the Hebrew Bible has quite a different view than the Christian one. Now at least I know a bit about this book that affects thousands of people, b/c I hadn't touched it before!

So, I have had several occupations in my time. The latest being restaurateur. For some reason, I am entirely incapable of finding an occupation that does not take the maximum amount of time, effort, and aggravation. Of course, I was previously also a teacher. Both have been and are jobs that I love, and allow me a great deal of expression, but they are also...
