Good gosh sorry this took so long but I didn't forget.
When it comes to me and Peanut really it was me that ended up messing things up. It was one of my first lengthier relationships seeing as at the time I was only 19 or 20 or something like that so I was naive and overthought things as I usually do. Without going into too much detail generally speaking I broke it off because of worries related to his military service and being away. The nail in the coffin and where my grand failure came in was asking for a second go around and failing miserably and generally being an ass, as much as I'd rather not admit that. We stayed friends a while after though until just distance, time, and other circumstances had us naturally drift apart. I haven't talked with him in a while now but I do get the urge now and then, though I've never followed up on it for whatever reason.
As for flying I actually did take about a year of lessons when I had the money. It was rather amazing and a life experience I'll never forget. Given it was just small little Cessna's to start out with but something about being in the cockpit was rather awe inspiring. Sadly I ran dry of cash and those lessons weren't cheap so I ended up having to stop mid way to getting my private pilot's license. Perhaps I'll go back some time if the money and atmosphere warrants it.
For now I'm not doing anything glamorous. I'm a truck driver (as in the big rigs, 53' trailers, etc.) and I actually quite like the work other than the fact that it demands being out of home quite a lot. It's a lot of work, but it's good money for someone like me who has no real college education to speak of. And while there are quite of a few of the stereotypical dirty truckers out there you'd be pretty surprised at the walks of life you see doing the job given the current job climate here. >>42085887>>42085891
I always sorta suspected that some of the "old timers" at least check on things once and a while. While it was a rather long time ago the people here and such were a big part of, at least, my life at the time. For better or worse ending up here set me on the path to where I ended up today so it's interesting to at least check in for nostal
