So... It's been a while... A lot has changed in my life since I last wrote a journal entry here... My wife has decided to move out and though we're still technically married, it's in name alone.

It made me realize the things that had once ignited a fire in me were nothing but a slow burning ember now, so I've set out to do more, be more.

Time will tell though. :) Once I get back up and running I have a ton of stuff to edit, and will be posting quite a bit (like I don't already). Talk to you all soon!
