    Who The Heck Am I?

    Everything I once knew as ME seems distant and bogus. After losing my job and 98% of my friends as a result of my actions and my situation, I'm not realizing that the life I built was an elaborate play-act lasting almost 37 years. Now what?

    Road To Rediscovery

    I know who I use to be and what I use to like to do. I'm fully aware of that girl, her transgressions, her successes, her beauty, her passions, and her dislikes. But while admiring the girl I was, I feel like I've lost sight who I have become and what she likes. I've asked myself...
