Now that I've dug my live journal out of mothballs and such I'm finding my self thinking more about things.

It's almost like I used to think. I hate to say it, but a lot has actually changed. It's changed in some good ways, and also bad ways. Someone said something very derogatorily to me here. It made me question things. It took many years before I went back to what some call "social networking" when it came around (aka Facebook.) I have to say that what was said at the time brought me closer to the boyfriend I had at that time. Sadly things didn't work out. I know I posted some nasty things here. I'm semi ashamed but I've grown up. It's water under a flooded Missouri River bridge.

I've grown up. Those are three words that shock me when I dusted the mothballs off. I've moved on to a point where I've worked at my current company over ten years. I remember starting this LJ account within hours of turning down a job from said company. It's amazing where life takes us.

In closing this entry, I have to say this... You will always come back to a point where you are yourself. You will share "secrets" that are not really ending up as such. You may end up working with those people that tried to harm you. Just continue to breathe, there is a very valid reason you can do that.

 
 
 
 
 
 

Pride is over. It's over in many ways. I want to elaborate and think about it critically. I still think about things like that. I could elaborate on the thoughts, however I will allow adaptions for the first time in my life. I've just renewed my journal.

 
 
 
 
 
 

It's been quite the while since I updated things here. I gave up on this I guess. Well, I actually found Facebook and some people had pushed me away from here. There are many things to share, and in time I hope to do so. Right now I'm so happy to find that my account is still here and that I will be able to share my thoughts again. I met my first love because I shared thoughts here. It's been a long time and we shall see.

 
 
 
 
 
 
Letchy's note: This is actually cross posted from my journal on my Myspace page. That can be found here. I will also be adding the new pic from that page here too. -dan

Well, I'm going to make some ramblings and hope they all make sense... so here goes!

First off, I've found myself quite bored lately. Nothing is stimulating me. Don't get me wrong, I'm enjoying the things that I have been doing. But, currently I am not finding anything fun and exciting that is "new" for me. I think that part of this feeling is due to the weather that has been occurring here lately. I'm sick of the gosh darn snow.

Today, I decided that I was going to play around with Photo Booth for Mac. I took this super cool pic, that I now have as my profile pic. I've been getting good compliments about it. I am liking that. I just think that maybe my creative side is banging to get out and I am not letting it do so at the current time. Perhaps it's time to change that. I am debating getting a couple of different things so that I can be more creative. Right now there is only so much one can do with out getting out there and just doing something. I also am kind of wanting this keyboard that I saw on the Apple Store website, but I think that may have to wait.

In general, going back to the boredom, I am finding that now that I can only have very small and limited amounts of alcohol I am not enjoying the 'Gay Life.' I know there is more than just the bars around here, a friend of mine was telling me about this art show that they went to the other day, it makes me think so much how I miss being involved with the art community. I actually liked it in high school, but reserved my feelings as I was super sensitive to every one's thinking around me. In some ways I think that I still am. I'm slowly working through that but as of right now I just wish that I could be the true 'leo' that I am.

Right now, I just had the thought of driving around and seeing if I could get some good 'Night Snow Scape pics' but I am kind of too sleepy to do so right now. I bowl tomorrow (sunday) afternoon, and also have Monday and Tuesday off from work. I am thinking also that I should cross post this into my live-journal, as I have not really said much about myself there in ages.

I have tuesday off due to a doc appointment. I am kind of scared about it, as I currently am being told that I have some health problems. It's not that I am afraid of what they will tell me, I am more afraid of other peoples reactions to what ever they tell me is wrong. Currently, I believe that some of my family members are trying to twist things around into something that they are not in order to try and scare me out of what they call a 'phase.' I know that this last statement may have been typed out of anger or resentment, but I just want them to get over it. The ultimate judge is God or what ever higher power one believes in. Who died and made you that person or people? Ok, I better end that rant.

My macky just told me that it's three am. I love that he announces the time. Yes I have come up with a name for him and every thing. His name is "Macky" and yes it's a he. I like my Mac to a little boy that stick his tongue out at you when something doesn't go his way. I think it has to do with the way that CD's and DVD's are spat out from it when I'm done with them. Ok, that is more rambling that what I was originally gunning for, and since the macky just told me it's three am... I think I shall get a glass of milk, and curl up with my teddy bear. (No snickers please)
 
 
 
 
 
 
Hey, just thought I would give a short update, I don't know what will be going on for me the rest of the weekend. But I just wanted to say hi to the LJ land :)
 
 
 
 
 
 
So yea, I look like I've fallen off the planet to all you LJer's out there. I have not. I've been trying to get a lot of stuff straight in my life. Currently, I am still living with a roomie in a house here in Omaha. I am still working for the same company. Not much new there.

On the significant other front, not a damn thing has changed. Hello, I'm Dan, and I'm still single!

In October of 2006 I went hog wild at the Apple Store, and bought myself a new computer and all the cool things that go with it. I'm going to be paying that off for quite a while. GOD DANG IT. It's kind of funny though, cuz while I was out buying that computer, the mother board on my OLD OLD OLD computer died, melting the processor to it. Good thing it didn't catch fire, cuz no one was home.

More recently, I've sought help for Alcohol Abuse, and I'm going to publicly admit that as I don't really care. I am now on Wellbutrin, and I also have to be evaluated for a more serious thing on monday of next week. I'm sure I'm fine, but it's good to find out first.

Tomorrow is V-Day. I hope that everyone that has a significant other takes the time to enjoy something with their mate. Who knows, those of us that are single may start something that day too. We shall see.

Any how, I'm gonna sign off for now, if you would like to read other updates... Check out my myspace page @ http://www.myspace.com/letchman
