So, it's been six years since my last journal entry. It's also been that long, or longer, since I've done anything on dA at all.
I wouldn't even know where to begin to bring this up to date. My life has changed a thousand times over since then. I've got a job, went to college, graduated, got another job (Systems Analyst). Now I'm working on a career change. As much as I love problem solving and complex systems, it just isn't my passion. It isn't me. I'm taking classes at the local University on my lunch break from work and continue to work part-time in the Army Reserve, which has become a huge part of my life over the last ~six years. My English Professor has reignited my love of poetry, he's a brilliant and vibrant man who really brings the material to life. I haven't done that well on a midterm in a decade, or longer.
In short, I'm glad dA still exists and I'll try to write more. Hopefully my career change is successful and I'll be a Police Officer soon enough.
