The Autobiography of Russell
Life from a different perspective
New News
Starting off on a good note, things with Stephen and myself have been patched up. On the other hand, I may be leaving anyway. This is why I am coming here for that last bit of advice or encouragment/discouragement.

The reason I would be going to Dyersburg is because my support base (transport, finances, etc) here is severely limited. Basically, I would get more support for the things I want to do there than I would be able to here, by a rather large extreme. It is not sure that the university would really work out---it is probably too late to get a scholarship or a work study job. I'd end up leaving in January anyway if I couldn't get a work study due to finances. Chances of a non-university job are slim, experience has shown this.

Stephen told me I should do what it best for life. Here is where all of you come in. Do you think I'm doing the right thing or not, and why?

It's what I am doing ... as soon as I can.

Hmm, this is true. I hadn't made the connection until you mentioned it. It seems a number of people are moving back to their old (small?) towns right now, following in suit of graveyardgreg and iceraver.

When I first heard about you wanting to move from Sandiego I was a bit questionative about it. Just remember to try and leave on a good note or the broken ties you had in one place will repeat when you leave.

... I'll shut up now. Blabbing a bit too much, heh. >.>

First and foremost. What do YOU want to do. That's what matters more than anything. I looked inside myself and realized that Dyersburg was where I needed to be for a while. To help myself, ya know?

Secondly, if you come back, at least you have a new friend who'll be here waiting for ya. ;-) Actually, if you mesh well with me and mine, you'll have a troupe of people that are absolutely hilarious. You don't have to worry about that aspect. ;-) (Sorry, that was silly of me, but true)

Now, as far as university, where are you trying to go? After all, DSCC is only a Two-year. Would you be heading for Martin, Jackson, Henderson, or Memphis. (The only locations nearby that I can think of, in TN) If it's Henderson, avoid it like the plaque. I went there for a bit.

Anyway, I shut up now.

I think I want to go where I can get a job and be supported in the things that I want to do (real estate investing, making a business, computer programming), neither of which I find much support for here. My brother and sister, on the other hand, are both deeply involved in real estate investing and have a lot of knowledge on how to start a business, so I think they would be able to help me along there.

It is nice to know I wouldn't be the only gay person in Dyersburg. The last time I was there, a couple of years ago, it seemed like I was the only one. Then again, I was a very timid person back then and I didn't get out much if I could help it. I've changed since then, although I am still a bit timid.

I don't think I'm going to try for a university right now. As much as everyone says I need to go to one, it isn't high up on my priority list at the moment. Right now, what I'd like to do is get some ground under my feet and work from there. Once I'm in the position where I'm not largely reliant on other people for my wellbeing then I will consider what to do from there. My sister may try to convince me to go into the community college this semester, and I'll at least look into it to see how feasible it is.

Dude, I know people. My close friends are the best, persephone_wynd is my roommate. Then we have deathdancer who is my best friend in the world. He and I are practically the same person. The only difference is that he's dating morgantn and I'm not. ;-) I know the good ones out here and the ones to avoid. I'm fairly normal, myself. Ask scixual. Well... not that his version of normal says much. *ducks and runs*

If you do come here, I'm going to demand an introduction/meeting/whatever. When were you in Dyersburg last? I left here about four years ago... and was here for three years before that, working at Wal-Mart.
