The Latest Me
   I've finished my first year in college, and boy did it fly by quickly. I only hope my grades were up to par...wow have I been Americanized or what! "Grades", I usually say "marks". Not much to say, it's summer and I'm looking for work in the midwest. If you're a general contractor feel free to drop me a line! (I know, I know, no one actually reads this, but hey!) Anyhow, this is the update: look at the pretty picture! wasn't I cute? Yes, I was.

   Well, it's spring break, it's March, and there are about five weeks left to my first year in college. I'm learning Wilderness First Responder, and I will be certified at the end of the week. Not a lot has changed since I started here; I'm working harder than ever in my life, working to do my best academically, socially, extracurricularly, and with time management. Throughout my life I've felt like I was good at a lot, but I wasn't exceptional at any of those things; the difference now, is that I am working on becoming more than adequate. That's important.

The really frightening thing is the pace at which life is going now. It's scary the speed at which things happen, the begin and they end in the blink of an eye. My life has been so regular and paced up to now, and it has finally broken into a run; I just worry about keeping up. Wish me luck!

   *sigh* the end of my first semester, one exam and a crazy intense paper both to finish by the end of tomorrow. But then it will be over, I can start over with a little less procrastination...yeah right, that's the running joke of my life. But it's worth the thought. I wish the semester was over more often. However, irregarding the stress, this is an interesting paper to be writing; John Stuart Mill on Morals and Justice.

On another note, I probably have yet to mention here that I am with the most wonderful girl in the world, and I truly see our future together going far. Maybe the fact that we're not even six months together and I've considered certain proposals. Never before has that happened. Jessica McDaniel! I love you!

   "College Material" Well here I am at school, and man is it gonna be a bitch. It's been so long since I've had homework, not to mention a full course load of any significance. But I'm happy, I'm finally here after two years of dreaming. And I worked hard to get here at Earlham, so I am gonna make the best of it.

   I have a bit of time right now, so I am going to upload some of my latest images, whish aren't really new, but are newer than the rest. So Peace!

   Well I suppose it's been a little while for updating. But I realized the other day that I have a numbe of images on my computer that ae not here. One was even made into a real tattoo on a friend of mine. Very cool. It's the 6the of August, and I am in Vernon. Earlham awaits me on the 15th. So, as I am no on my own computer now, I cannot add the pictures, but I will add them as soon as I can.

   So, I'm going to Earlham in August. It's the 2nd of May today, and I've got less than two months to be ready to go. I'm working with glass 48+ hours a week. And finishing Math 12 on Tuesday and Thursday nights. I still haven't had time to edit my pictures, but when I get to it, I'll get to it. Meanwhile...bah, just come back and remind me to update!

   Now it is February First and a new year. The months pass too quickly. I am becoming more prolific in my work, art, and life. I would go into more detail, but I'm in the midst of some stuff at the moment. I still have not gotten anything digitized, but rest assured it's there.

   Well look at that! So much for goals and a new path to walk. It's now July 12, 2003 and I'm wasting as much time as ever. I have graduated; no big accomplishment there. I am mostly unemployed. But I have a new rockin' mountain bike; her name is Rachel.

   Now let's see, I haven't finished, nor even started the recipe section or the reading lists. There has been some progress on the 'Projects' that I ambitiously attempted.

   My wonderful bouts of boredom and depression are mostly gone, I haven't been severely depressed for a long time now, which makes me even more happy. Unfortunately, I am having to retrain myself to find natural creativity, and not have hormone or drug induced feelings (with the exception of coffee).

   At any rate, I am here now, updating my site finally, I will scramble through a few papers and see if there's any new poems. I will add a few essays from 12th grade english which may or may not be completely unenlightening. I have no new art, besides one poorly done experiment in acrylic. That is all. I deem it "Mostly Harmless".

  *****'Tis now that I take the motive and make it into the deed; I have been inspired by my newest friend Erin who has a cool web site. I am in the process of acquiring a new path, or rather finally traversing the one I've been standing on for the past few years. I am setting a few goals and getting some projects finished while starting new ones and most of all keeping a positive attitude in order to keep on keeping on. This is the beginning of a bunch of gibberish that will remain on this page as a sort of manifesto with each update. The date is December 20th, 2002 and it is the eve of the Christmas break (I resent that fact that I can't really think of applying any other name to this holiday) This update is partly in preparation of the next update: I will have a handful of new poems and am updating all links. Two new sections being projects and photos. Photos and an art update will be when I get all my stuff scanned - probably circa New Years Eve. Organization and a lack thereof prevent me from finishing the recipe and reading sections, so they will be put off for now. Enjoy!

On this site you should eventually find the collection of all my works in visual art, and the manifest emotions they call 'poetry'. Please enjoy and not only that, absorb what meaning you can. For that is my trek, to evoke meaning and to follow the path to acquiring happiness; the present works are simply tid-bits found along the way.

"And every hour his soul grew blacker, every hour he dreamed new dreams of vengeance, of defiance, of raging, frenzied hate.

The vilest deeds, like poison weeds,
Bloom well in prison air;
It is only what is good in Man
That wastes and withers there;
Pale Anguish keeps the heavy gate,
And the Warder is Despair.

So wrote a poet, to whom the world had dealt its justice:

I know not whether Laws be right,
Or whether Laws be wrong;
All that we know who lie in gaol
Is that the wall is strong....

And they do well to hide their Hell,
For in it things are done
That Son of God nor son of Man
Ever should look upon!
Upton Sinclair -The Jungle
