I'm doing great! Quit a bit has happened since I last wrote. My "new chapter" is flying high. I have complete control of my life again. Wow, what a wonderful feeling. Ben, my housemate, got a job and moved to Gettysburg, PA leaving me with the whole house to myself (as well as the bills)!! Needless to say, I'm looking for a place to live. We had a going away party for Ben this past Sunday. It was a good time. We had alcohol, fire, and spray paint for Ben's ambulance! Also, I got hired on as a permanent member of the Sharon Speedway fire crew. That has been a blast! At the top of it all is the surprise visit from April. When she heard of the hard time I was having breaking free, she took off three days of work and drove up here all the way from Atlanta, GA. We spent most of the weekend together. What a fun time!! Thank you so much for everything!!!

Thus begins a new chapter. Today is the first day of the rest of my life. I finally said goodbye. It was something that needed to be done a long time ago. This has been destroying me since January. How do I feel? Bittersweet is the best word to describe it. I am quite sad that I lost her, but again, I am relieved that it is finally over. Thank you everybody for telling me I deserve better (because I definitely do)!! I'd like to send a special thanks to April for being there for me all hours of the day and night. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

Happy belated birthday, Cathy. I have no need to worry, though. She doesn't know how to use a computer (like I'm ever going to talk to her anyway). Here's a question: Is God out to get me? Why am I being dragged through this time and time again (you know what I'm talking about). I'm completely tired of feeling this way, but my stupid @^%$@! heart gets in the way. Well, I'm gonna have one more beer, then try to get some sleep (wishful thinking) :-(

Yes, I'm still in sunny North Carolina. A brief thunderstorm is passing, so I thought I'd write. My word for today is friendship. Sometimes you find the best friends in the strangest ways. Little did I know when I was shooting pool that I was about to meet a future good friend. Thanks Lissa. Scene two: Little did I know while sitting at the bar downing shots that I was about to meet another future good friend. Thanks April. You know, friends like these are invaluable.

Greetings from Sunny North Carolina!! We left last night at 9:13 pm, and arrived safely here at 7:10am. Barring a few incidents (numerous deer and a flying semi-truck wheel) the trip was uneventful. My first day here was nice. It was sunny and in the low 80s. The water was warm and the waves were rollin!! I went on a little 15 mile bike ride after dinner to stretch out the legs. I need to get going. I'm heading out to a local bar with my brother Jason and his wife Vanessa. So you ask, "Is life good in paradise?" YES, LIFE IS GOOD HERE.
