    Damn it has been a while since I have been here...

    School is coming to an end. I'm graduating in 19 days and good Lord I do not know if I am excited or nervous. I'll have a Bachelor's of Science in Criminal Justice and plan on becoming a Po-Po in the Dallas Metroplex.. Dallas is option number..Its not an option. Plano is my #1 choice. Good news is i'll be on the trails alot more up there!

    So here i come world.

    congrats...i'm right up there with ya...thursday is my last day of college no tests or anything....although i won't be graduating with a fancy bs degree...after 4 years of college i'm getting my associates of applied science in drafting and design with an emphasis in civil engineering. maybe after a few years of working i'll go back and get my bs, but i'm gonna hold out and see how this works for me

    edit: i've got a lot of family in plano, i've always liked going down there. if i didn't have my mind set on going to the pnw, some where in texas would be my second choice

    Thanks!

    Family and friends is a huge factor. Comfort plays a big part. It's what i know.. I like the state. I might put in a few in Central Jersey. have some fam up there. We will see!

    Do you miss me??? I'll call you tomorrow. I may have a plan for Thursday if you can skate out of town at 2pm or so for the evening. Road trip.

    I'm guilty in that department as well. Haven't been on the MTB much at all.. Might need to wear a bulletproof vest at Cameron Park these days...

    Congrats! :weee:

    I wish BV graduated in 19 days. I guess I have to settle for 156. He may be celebrating with a girl in a padded cell by that point...
