I don't know karate, but I know cuh-razy

Well, I guess I've been gone long enough to convince everyone that I'm either dead or dying. Not so, fuckers! Actually, I've decided on a course of self improvement for my self and hopefully my family. I've decided to return to school to get my Masters and become what I have always wanted to become...an English teacher. Yes, that's right folks, I will be helping to mold the minds of our youth. This wasn't an easy decision, as it's placed a large portion of the financial burden on Mrs. Disco, but we have come to an understanding that this is the best thing for everyone involved. For the longest time I have wanted to be a teacher, ever since my English teacher in high school, Ms. Melendrez inspired me by setting the example of how all it takes is one good teacher to motivate a student to greater heights. I'm taking my general ed courses so I can get those out of the way and then transfer to UC Irvine to get my Masters in Education, and then it's off to reform our educational system!

I'm sorry for being away for so long, but the way my brain is wired I have to focus on one thing at a time so I don't spin my wheels. Now that I've been in my classes for a couple of weeks and gotten my homework and study habits in line, I'll be posting regularly.

Here's a little something that I dug up on the old interwebs. I think I have a bit of a man-crush on Matt Damon now.

Actually, I'm really proud of you. That's awesome. And you've been sorely missed. Kick ass, take names, and don't dangle your participles.
