change in format for the next 6 months....

while I intended this blog to be more of a music, technology & beer blog, it hasn't quite worked that way. consistency has been the main issue, with life being the main reason I haven't kept up with it. so in an effort to be more proactive with blogging, i've chosen the topic of life to blog about. most importantly, my life. if will be more a way for me to organize my thoughts but hopefully if you stumble upon this, it will help you as well. There's a lot of changes that will be happening for me, some changes which have happened before, I just hope and plan to deal with those changes differently than I have before.

my current status:

recently single and still living in the same house with my now ex-gf. This is the most difficult thing I've ever had to do. I'm doing my best to remain supportive and help out wherever I can, mostly because I still care deeply for this girl and should've made the necessary steps to avoid her eventual disinterest in me so that I could've made her my wife.

be that as it may, you can't make someone love you.

i can't be here right now. definitely not here in the same house, definitely not in this area. my friends and family are 1500 miles away and that's who I need most right now. I'm trying to finish school and have been doing quite well and will be attending classes online for the remainder of the year so that I don't lose any ground. i'll be back. i can tell. i love Texas i really do.

i haven't made as many friends here as i'd have liked to, especially close ones. but the friends I have made are lifelong friends and i'm very thankful to have them in my life.

during the next two months i'll be trying to get my life back in order and ready to relocate temporarily.

i have a lot to do. i need to take a leave of absence from work, find storage for what little personal belongings i do have and make sure my car can make the 1500 mile drive. i need to work really hard to make sure i get all this done, on top of finishing school in the next couple weeks. i look forward to the challenge. i think things like this, while somewhat devastating to me, will make me stronger.
