Under the Influence

February 14, 2018
I had a personal victory last Friday.  I was really worried about this day.  My work was having an event, and work events ALWAYS have free drinks.  Put a Big Mac in front of an obese foodie, and they are going to eat it.  Put free beer in front of a problem drinker, they are…

    I was looking at my old journal.  I see the last entry I had written was back in 2010 announcing to the community that I was going to become a father.  My daughter will be 7 in a few months.  Everybody always writes about what they love about being a parent.  So what I am…

    Odd to think, I started writing on OD close to 20 years ago.  It disappeared for awhile, but I also disappeared. It's funny to think what has changed.  My life has changed sure... but my personality hasn't really.  I still struggle with addiction.  I have quit for years at a time, but then go bac...

    So another month has passed and soon it will be yet another year. Time is moving so quickly, when I think about it that saying does hold true; "Life is short". Big things are happening in my life right now. It will soon all change. Debbie told me she is pregnant. I'm going to be…

    I'm worried. I am moving in 5 days. There is so much to do. I am not so much worried about the move, but worried about what is coming after the move. This will be the first time I have been unemployed since I was like 12. I have always had a job, I have…

    Well the time on the island is coming to an end. I guess the old saying holds true, "There is no place like home." Living on the island has been an experience that's for sure. Mostly I think I have learned to appreciate where I came from.  The opportunity available there.  The...

    Hey everybody. I am still alive, still kicking... doing well. Haven't felt much of a "need" to come on here lately. Still feel confident about my quit. I can't believe I am almost at 2 1/2 years now... time flies. So what have I been doing? A lot of golf. Looking for a new job…

    July 4, 2010
    I am a music junkie. My collection is now up to 7248 tracks or 782 Hours and 53 minutes, and I know every single track. All I want to do lately is sit back and be alone with my record collection. It seems music is one of the things in this world that truly makes…

    I was just taking a trip down memory lane, reading past entries from my journal previous to this one.  Reading entries from way back in 2000.  Wow times flies.  So much has changed since then, those were some good times.  The island is beautiful in the early summer.  Ther...
