Have I been away that long?

Hi everyone. Please forgive me for being away for so long. I can see that I haven't posted anything in almost a month.

Well, a lot has been going on. Other that trying to stay cool in this damned heat, I'm in the middle of a major job search. I've been looking everywhere but I get the feeling that I'm not quite doing enough but I don't know what? I do have a job interview on Tuesday at a local security service. I get the feeling sometimes that I'm not really qualified to do anything. I'm also working on a limited internet capacity right now. I lost my DSL and am using AOHell to connect right now. I'm waiting for my mom to send me some money so that I can pay QWest what I owe them and can get back online. I really need these jobs. I also want to get my cable TV back. I've been without cable for a couple of months now and I want it back.

And I've also been in Denver, CO for a few days last week for the annual Grandmaster The visit to the Denver school. It was a hell of a lot of fun. Colorado is as beautiful as I remember it. The form we learned, Pa Kua Tao, is very long, complicated and fun. It consists of 80 postures that had to be taught over two days because it is so long and so many people were trying to learn it. It's a weapon form consisting of a sword that is around 5 feet long and weighs around 20 pounds. Try holding that and swinging that in one hand for around 8 hours straight. There were over 200 people from schools all over the country attending. Another thing about these festivals is, we eat all the time. I must have put on 10 pounds. Granted I sweated it off right away but still the food was plentiful. Elder Master Sharon and David and most of the students are Vegan. Grandmaster The is not.

I'm going now since this connection is so slow, I don't want to run the risk of it crashing on me. I will be back now that I can get back on. Hopefully I will have my DSL back soon also. I have a lot to comment on so look for me later on today or early tomorrow. Thanks and see you around.
