    Reintroducing myself: Back from the dead

    Hey y'all, Took a Four year break from the road to try family life. Learned a lot, lost it all, found Buddhism. Sleeping on a friend's couch and reconsider my options. Planning on doing some winter camping on and off while I dip my toes back in the water. There's a lot of new faces around...

I made the unfortunate mistake of falling in love and now find myself in a prison of my own make. Kept here by no...

    Your girlfriend sounds awful, man. No offensive. She obviously doesn't fit well with you. I mean, a lot of people are in relationships that don't fit right, but people find a way to compromise. Sounds like she's just a drama whore. School sucks too, but whatever. Gotta bust through that shit. As...

    Also, just because the price of crude is falling doesn't add up to depression, to me. Our economy picks up when the price of crude falls, because gas is cheaper and people can afford to spend more and go places. I've always heard it spoken of as a "Tax Break" for the middle class.

    Like I said earlier, just use your best judgement. There aren't many that tips to give.

    As someone who is the loud social butterfly type, at least in MY experience, it's way more likely for you to be in to him than him to be in to you.
