Howdy everybody, I知 sure my tiny group of readers has dwindled since it has been so damned long since I致e posted anything. Sorry about that, just ran out of stuff to talk about I guess. Anyhow I値l post a little update about life right now, and I think I致e some things to say again so expect upcoming updates.

To begin things, I finished my Master痴 Degree many moons ago (I知 a master of science. Take that, Bitches). I had posted that I wanted to work on a Ph.D., but I致e abandoned that plan due to lack of research interests. I致e been filling my days with tutoring, and my evenings with dancing. I知 going out on a limb and focusing my efforts on being a professional ballroom dancer. My teacher has taken me under her wing, and has been formally grooming me to teach and dance as a career. I知 happy to announce that I知 now available to teach as an associate of Susan痴 Ballroom Dance, if you want some lessons you can get in touch and we can schedule a lesson.

As a happy result of focusing so intently on dancing I lost 75 pounds in the last year. I still have a bit to go before I start building a permanent wardrobe, but I知 extremely happy with my results thus far.

In other news, I was arrested for aggravated gardening. I値l probably tell the story more completely in the near future. The case has been resolved: my charge was pled down to a misdemeanor and I知 serving 2 years of probation, paying $2000 in fines, and serving 200 hours of community service. Justice served. For community service I知 going to try to start a dance program at a local community center, barring that I値l do whatever they ask of me. If you are sympathetic to the cause then you can donate to my fines and legal defense fund, I値l choreograph you a dance in return. I値l probably have a series of posts relating to the joys of community supervision. One of the terms of probation is that I cannot consume alcohol, or enter the premises of any establishment that profits primarily from the sale of alcohol (What alcohol has to do with pot is beyond me, but I知 hardly in a position to dictate the rules). The upside being that I now have a good reason for turning down invitations to bars, sorry folks I never liked them anyway save for the dancing.

Barring any major catastrophe my probation will end December 17, 2012.

Go Back

If you're a link spammer you should know that no links on this page will be followed by a site indexer (go ahead, check my meta tags), so it will not improve your page ranking. . . thus it is kinda ridiculous to post here
