Freedom

A bird that once knew freedom will fly out of a door to its cage if left open. A bird held captive for too long may forget freedom lies beyond the door. A bird that is born into captivity and a cage will likely stay in a cage even when Read more…

Hey

Well, I look around this website and it just doesn’t seem important anymore. What am I really striving for here? I have no purpose. No time. No feeling of identity with it. Work takes up too much time. Besides the fact that no one wants to hear me talking about Read more…

Oops….

Goodness, it’s a bit dusty in here. I guess that’s what happens when you are working, time just is something you no longer have. I have been working a temp job for the past 2 months, and now they have extended my contract for 3 MORE months, so I think Read more…

It’s Over!

Yes, I am actually talking about the holidays. They aren’t particularly my favorite time of year, and this year was no exception. I am not sure if I can recall the last time I had a REALLY great holiday season. So I am glad they are over and I can go forward into a new year with hopefully a better outlook.
I did a little revamping of the site, which will be continuing hopefully. I put up a new layout, which now seems too simplified and uninspired compared to my other skins, but hey, that’s kind of the mood I have been in, so I suppose it fits. I am also going to be removing my gallery completely from this site, only because I want to set up my other domain as my gallery/portfolio/Poser download place. I MAY be replacing the gallery with a photo gallery, though, I haven’t decided yet. Who knows how long that will take to set up, but if there are people who care, I’ll make sure I announce it here when it’s ready.
OK, so the holidays themselves weren’t actually terrible this year. The kids made out like bandits, there are so many many kind and generous people out there, it just gladdens the heart. My mother (of all people) made her once yearly guilt call around Thanksgiving, and ended up buying the boys a new set of bunkbeds. Imagine that. I bought myself a digital camera (can’t afford it, really, but hey, I deserve it), which was promptly stolen when the delivery company merely left it inside the front door of my building (I was home) without ringing my bell or knocking on my apartment door. Nice! Good thing I had documentation that no signature was procured, so Dell sent along another, but not in time for Christmas. However, I managed to trade digicams with someone else who had bought one, and I will give them the one I bought when I see them next. So I did get to snap a few photos of the kids. I am still getting the hang of the thing, so hopefully the pics will get better soon. I’ve put a few of the better ones here in the extended entry. Enjoy. 🙂

My Apologies…

OK, so my last entry was not exactly fair. Nor was my remaining silent afterwards. I guess I was just going through a temporary period of high stress and started to fall back into my usual habits of withdrawal. Actually, just reading my somewhat silly words on the page had Read more…

Hey :D

Sheesh, lately it seems so hard to really keep myself focused on all the different things I have going on. Anyway, I just wanted to drop in really quick to let everyone know that I AM still alive, and not doing so very badly. Especially when it comes to the Read more…
