      Well, I turned 21 in December. Single, haha, was borderline alcoholic for about 5 months. Last Wednesday I poured all my liquor and alcohol down the kitchen sink drain in my apartment. I realized it was becoming a coping mechanism so I couldn't let myself go that far.

      Been working for Corporate CFA for about two months now. It's not bad, but I'm still not exactly... Happy. Work's long, pay's decent. Got a dollar raise, but I HAVE to keep my hair short now, which for me means that I have to get a hair cut every two weeks or else it gets too long.

      Started up a new band, this time it's just me and a drummer, I'm doing guitars and vocals and he's doing drums and vocals. It's going really well, music wise I'm getting happy again, it's been a long road and a very difficult one at that. In the last month I have bought two guitars and two basses, which has been a relief, I've missed playing bass more than I realized. I think I was born to be a bass player, I just liked the glamor of guitar more though.

      Bought a new car in November, an '07 Chevy HHR, it had 86k miles on it when I bought it, I've already almost put 10k on it. Didn't end up moving to New Braunfels, but that's where I'm looking at moving at the start of the New Year.

      Honestly, I think that's all there is to cover from the last few months/6 months.

      I've been here six years. Hell, how quickly time flies... I remember when the Community was thriving and activity was everywhere, hard to believe now that was 4 or 5 years ago. Things change quickly, too quickly.

      It's been a great run, really. There's still a few of us "old schooler's" still around though, which is cool. I appreciate everyone who's still around, I know I don't get on and check stuff too often anymore, but I don't really own a computer right now and I'm borrowing my roommate's for the moment.

      Hope everyone is well and is taking care.

      Yeah, military thing has been reevaluated and I'm going to wait until after I get my degree, which I am currently thinking about a communications degree, something useful that I can use in the outside world but that could be extremely useful in the military. And I've also decided that if I'm going to be in any branch I'm going to do what I wanted to do as a child, be a United States Marine. So, if and when that time comes, I know what I'll be doing. I have a long time to get myself in shape, grow my hair back out and enjoy a little bit of life.

      I'm working on getting an apartment with my buddy Cederich in the summer, we've found a place we think we'll dig and the hard part is convincing the owner to let us bring a couple dogs, they're not big dogs, they're both fairly small, really.

      But either way, I'm going to Seattle this summer, which I'm stoked for and I'm really ready to go and do something with my life. I've started writing on the story again, I'm not liking where I'm starting so I'll probably rewrite and rewrite until I find something that I dig. As for school, it sucks, I'm bored, stuck in classes that are below my level again and really just ready for a change.

      I talked to the Recruiters on Tuesday, they told me it'd be a YEAR before I was shipped out, December at the earliest. I took the placement test they have up there and scored a 90 out of 99 possible points, so I was pretty happy about that.

      I'll keep you all informed.

      no question. M-14 if you have a choice and can afford it.

      Springfield's are simple, old. A classic collectible but not practical for current use.

      The Garand is heavy and a PITA to load and use. Many a smashed finger has been had with it's loading mechanism. Avoid unless you've got a lot of money to spare and you're a collector.

      The M-14 is reliable, easy to load and use. It's also customizable. M-14.

      thats a good 30 minutes to get into some good solid trouble. and if you dont get off till 10:30 then you defintely need to take advantage of the night after 11.

      chinatown came out in 80, but ive decided id use the Toughest Street In Town from Black Rose in 79. i think Bark at the moon came out in 83, which was a fairly magical year for various reasons (Holy Diver being one of them). i believe ive constructed a very solid playlist which i shall share with you later when im not in class.

      im currently making an era specific early 80s metal/hard rock mixtape. the songs i pick are going to be more fun/less dark pieces with a year cap of 1982, with a bias of the late 70s onward. i realize that thin lizzy must be on this tape, but i hesitate to put anything off of jailbreak on it because it is 1976, but thunder and lightning didnt come out until 1983. what thin lizzy that fits my description above (1978-1982 and more fun than dark) should i use? any other suggestions of bands would be helpful too.

      Yes but similar things can be said about Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and the writing in that was merely average.
      My point isn't that the book doesn't have any interesting ideas -especially for the time it was written- but that the ideas are poorly expressed.
