And the fun keeps on keeping on. Since I'm apparently the only one who can change myself (in the words of the drug-peddling smooth talkers also known as counselors), I'm putting myself up to a final challenge. Either I will create something in my life to look forward to or I will finish it. The last words I heard from my ex-girlfriend were, "Nothing ever changes." Looking at myself over the last few years, I'm almost convinced she was correct. I will prove that statement wrong or die trying. Wish me luck.
