I Dare You to Move…

Posted in Uncategorized on February 1, 2011 by ejrussell

This is coming together a little later than I had anticipated but I’m excited to be writing again. I’m now officially 27. To be honest I never thought I’d make it this far, and in some small way I really haven’t. I’m independent and an adult, but I haven’t really accomplished all that much since becoming an adult. I have several lofty goals this year, chief among them is to get working again. In good times this wouldn’t be so hard, however these aren’t good times. Far from it. So this is going to be a hard obstacle to overcome, however I’m confident that things are going to turn out for the best. In addition to all that I’m going to dust off my book again, because honestly it’s going to be a good exercise to write better stories.

The next goal is dating. I really hate it. It’s like the job interview from hell, only this time the boss is going to be around for an eternity. No pressure. However this time around I’m far more mature to really handle a relationship, and I’m also more confident a human being than I was even two years ago. I was always weird around girls and too self conscious to even speak to one normally. I still have that problem from time to time but now it’s toward girls I have no real interest in. That last sentence may seem kind of cold, but it’s the honest truth. If I feel I have no connection with a young woman then really what’s the point? Now to be fair, I’m always polite and will always lend an ear to those who need it, but I’m not going to fall all over myself to get to know someone I have no real desire to get to know. Having said that I am genuinely interested in getting to know as many girls as I can so I can choose wisely, y’know for the sake of eternity and all that.

The last part is going to be my education. The way things are looking now this may be a goal for next year. My debts are much too large to ignore right now to even think about going to school full time. I’d like to go eventually, and I’m excited for the future. It’s going to be hard when I do get there,only because I’m super lousy at school. How you “A” students do it is beyond me. I also have the trouble of setting my heart on just one subject because I love so many different things that it’s hard to decide on just one thing to pick. Maybe I’ll do the impossible and become a dual major. No. Forget that, forget I said any thing.

So that’s just about it, and I hope that all of these things turn out the way they need to. I’m just glad that I have so many friends and family who have been so supportive over the years. I’m not all that easy to live with, and It’s amazing that so many have taken frequent rides on my Mood Swings. So far it’s been an amazing journey and I hope that we can all continue to go forth with a firm reliance in Divine Providence and many laughs. To all of you have managed to put up with me over the years, you all are too important to me for words!
