I find that I only really write here when I have absolutely nothing to do. I often forget I even have a website, and am usually suprised when I find that it hasn't been shut down from underuse. I put this thing together when I was in Florida, and my feelings on that state alone should allow you to understand how bored and sad I was when it came into being. But now I have it, and I should probably update it more often. I don't have much use for a website except for keeping friends who have scattered far and wide updated on my doings. Unfortunately, I have enough friends here, in the real world, that I don't have the time or really interest in posting pictures and words to a website no one reads anyway. However, in the interest that I may someday really want this site functioning and somewhat updated, I'll cover the basics of the past few months.
I'm in school! I started going to welding school in Janurary, and I've been enjoying it quite a bit. It's a long drive to Cortez, but well worth it I think. I'm really interested in going somewhere with welding. Still working quite a bit, and along with school, I don't have a ton of free time, and at the moment, no full days off. Christmas break was completely ridiculous, lots of work, lots of friends, lots of C2H6O, and lots of madness. Fun, but weakening for the mind and soul.
Pretty regular winter for me. The old standards of work, skiing, and climbing with a dash of school, and of course my new interests to research, pursue, and obsess over. My beard is quite absurdly long, it's beginning to require more shampoo than the top of my head.
Thoughts for spring? Who knows? Keep working and save money for the Silk Road hopefully, but I may simply become a bum again. Maybe a little of both.
