Joined 8 years ago from Forever Desert, Arizona




Originally from a little town with an ironic name, Casa Grande, Az. I have been lost in thought for the greater part of the last 5 years.

After scraping my way through high school, upon graduation (which my best friend did not make because he failed too many classes) I joined the Army. I enjoyed my summer vacation (my last summer vacation) then deployed to Fort Benning Georgia to begin my training as an Airborne Infantryman.

My military career lasted a whopping 18 months. I was honorably discharged after something of a religious breakdown. I left any connection to religion behind, while gaining a new sense of spirituality. An attempted suicide tends to open the eyes a bit. :)

After thinking long and hard about whether or not to return home, I did, with my tail between my legs as if I had a huge sign that read 'loser' hanging over my head. It took a long time to move past that.

Spending countless hours doing the only thing that made me feel free, writing, I talked myself into and out of every financial goal and career i could think of. I Moved 3 times for different colleges, all in 3 totally different areas before finally realizing (and accepting) what I really want out of this short life. ...To write and relax.

Currently I live in an apartment in my hometown, with plans to move to the San Francisco area next May.

I enjoy reading, hiking, thinking, laughing, and all around enjoying life. I can be a bit of a nerd sometimes, and I am completely happy with that.
