I worked on a job as a construction administrator at 58th bet. 9th and 10th Ave. from 1998 to 2001. Although Columbus Circle was closer, because of ongoing construction at the time (Time Warner Center) I used the 50th Street Station at the foot of Worldwide Plaza more often so that I can catch the C or the E. When were you there?

I bought my first new car. Then I bought another, and another, 'nother, etc. So. Life is like a new car, the thrill wears off all too soon and then all you are left with is masturbation and supercilious regret.

Thats was super amazing read, all those events helped shape who you are today and for the most part where defining moments in your life. Cool, really cool read. Wow, you had a colorful upbringing. The computer stuff to the romance, all good stuff.

I suspect you must have a lot to share through your life. Vietnam must have been something, I remember my mother making us watch everything on TV about Vietnam. I was about 3 years old, she watched it all the time. I also remember being sad about the war as well.

Oh come on, you must have something that happened that defines you from your past....

I also remember grabbing a girl out the street when a car almost hit her. Her name was Cherry, she started walking looking the wrong way, and I just happen to be looking the right way and saw this car zooming towards her as she still kept walking. I grabbed her arm and pulled her back in the nick of time. The car wasn't even slowing down and she could have been a pile of guck on the streets. That was in elementary school, about 4th grade. I learned then that you do have the power to react and change things.

I have had two defining moments in my life. The first is when my father died. He worked hard all his life, my mother always had new cars and everything she wanted. and at the end all it got him was alone, broke and dead. and at that point I decided that I was going to life life to it fullest and not let anyone or any woman to rule me.

The second was earlier this year with some health problems. I have learned to take better care of myself and not take things so seriously.

Wow, true indeed. I will be 31 years old in a couple of weeks, and feel very much the same. I am sorry to hear about your events, yet I do struggle some times with the fact that bad things do change us as well as good things. Its not the easiest thing to except. I am sure you've learned greatly from these events, and thank you for sharing them, because now we can all learn from them as well.

September 11, 2001 was a defining moment in my life in addition to my first summer working out in the Hamptons & my first job in New York City. All eye opening experiences that changed my whole thought on life.
