I promised, I did and yet I didn't.  I was supposed to come back, and yet I remained off the radar for a year and a half it seems.  Part of me wants to renew for $30.00 but I'd rather see friends deal with no ads and have me click through a barrage of 20 just to see art.  Its not like my job is super demanding, I've grown to love it.  That paycheck every two weeks has been worth it, and my bank accounts look better everyday.

I've been told that the contract that I'm on will shut down as of mid-2014, but as for me?  I guess I'll do it till I get bored or killed in some obscure way in some far off mythical land.  Oh well, its still better than college.  But I'll try to come back, reveal the part of myself that I've kept hidden all these years and surprise a lot of you.  I guess in the end, that's all I'm going for is a surprise and have people be all "I never knew that, interesting."  

I've given up photography, and not because I don't have the strive for it; I really do!  Its just that, cameras and the technology behind it has gotten so elementary that its almost pointless to go take pictures.  Cameras to HDR and Tilt-Shift shots all in one package, and a $200.00 package at that.  While technology makes things cheaper, I do remember the times where I drank cheap liquor and ate ramen noodles just to gain an upper hand on the other photogs out there.  I remember paying $1,000.00 for my first D-40 and now just getting it out people are all "Whoa, didn't know they made those."

I've gotten into another creative aspect.  No, I'm not drawing, painting, or filming my cat.  I'm creating my life and my business.  A few small ventures funded by my dangerous line of work, which I can only thank my dangerous memories from the Marine Corp.  

I promise I'll be back.  I'll try for my friends that I've met here whom I've lost contact with.  I'll try, and in the end thats all that really matters.  Is that I'm trying.

Hey there, I haven't been here in forever. You're back from the 'raq, right? what's up?

Oh yeah, I've been back and I've gotten out of the Marine Corp to do bigger and better things. Currently I'm working with a private security agency doing executive and diplomatic security and such but I would like to persue something that doesnt revolve around something so dangerous. But it does pay the bills and pay very very well.

You need to see if you can get on The Moment of Truth. It would be the most hilarious thing ever.
