I'm a father of two great kids, 10 and 6, trying to make a living for them and me by writing freelance, full time.
I've been married 7 years, and with the same beautiful and supportive woman for 9.
I am an avid online gamer, currently addicted to Dungeons and Dragons Online for about 3 hours a night.
Getting fired isn't the end of the world. Sometimes it's just the universe's way of taking away your excuses for not doing what you've always wanted to.
If you can change one thing about your life and improve it, stop making excuses and just make that change. Move the mountain one rock at a time, and stop worrying about how many rocks their are.
