I have a new job, starts at the end of July!  The search is over and I have a permanent position again, and a significant pay raise!! :)

I was under a huge deal of stress, and while I still have have moving across the country to stress me out, a huge burden has finally been lifted off of my shoulders.

Bravo, Davey! And welcome back Ready for some Schnittke?

Thanks guys.  Karl, if by Schnittke you mean Haydn then yes!

What a peculiarly presumptuous (and probably condescending) remark, John!

Presumptuous indeed. Unless it was someone who was okay with seeing me once a week, for an hour, and barely communicating on the phone.
Let's see... 50-55 hours a week with school + work, 8-9 hours a sleep per night to feel like I'm even alive, chores (cleaning the bathroom and mowing the lawn each week, doing the dishes nearly every day), seeing my friend for an hour in the morning if I can wake up early on my one day off each week... being stingy because I don't have much money... nah, probably wouldn't be that enjoyable.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention the composing project. Well, I try, but there's barely any time, so progress is slow to non-existent.

I bid you all adieu as I leave for the realms of the metal that is heavy.

See you later, 'gators!  :)

He reminds me of a nightmare I had as a child.  I woke up in the middle of the night and looked out my bedroom window... there was a FLASH! of lightning and I saw a tiny viking in the window seal!!  *funny enough I'm not making this up*  It was scary. ;D
