    I've been MIA for a while,I needed to get my head straight,so after a month off school working and reading the Alchemist I've decided to follow my heart and quit school. I got rid of my lady of 3 years and quit school all in a two month time frame.I'm accutaly smiling for no reason at all and I've stopped grinding my teeth until they bleed. My eye stopped twitching and I'm not trying to set it off with people over small things!I'M NEVER COMPRIMIZING MY HAPPINESS AGAIN


    I got a sweet job and I'm looking at buying a house out in the burbs as an investment,but I really wanna buy a new whip.OH HOW PRIORITYS CHANGE!



    Most of you don't know me or care,but this is for my crew that I haven't been seeing and my 12 o homies!

    Hows your day going?

    I over see the billing,ordering,the delagation of crews to jobs,hiring,firing,estimates etc. Yes a degree could help but having my chem spray licence,design back ground and knowledge of certina programs to make blue prints is wayyyyyyyyy better.


    I've been working for my familys company since I told them they should start it 10 years ago.It's just experence that got me to the top cause my family doesn't work the way most of you would expect.I get NO favortizim, if I'm not pulling my share I'm out just like anyone else.


    So king I could be taking you the wrong way,but school isn't always the best thing for people,if your trying to belittle me I'll run you down with my audi in august sucka!

    You don't know me but..

    YEA! YEA! HOMIE!

    My friend started his own lawn service company
    in a little suburban town by saving up for a
    summer then buying a chipper, some other
    equipment and getting a crew... he was only
    19 and pulling in prolly $25-35,000 a year.

    Fuck conflict. I realized this a while ago...
    except now I'm at the point where not being
    in school is my conflict. Need to get laid,
    need to socialize, and need to start eating
    wild amounts of psychedelics with people
    who throw kitchen cuttery into ceiling fans
    again.

    so my drummer is about to finish up an art degree in screenprinting, and he keeps telling me it was the biggest waste of time and money he could have possibly found, besides heroin.

    and after listening to various friends and bandmates call him an "artfag" for way too long, he finally responded with "y'know, i'm really more art than fag." - classic.
