That's good, that you're making some money and happy! If you're planning on going back to school, though, don't put it off too long, as it gets harder to go back the longer you wait.
Well, neck of the woods may be stretching it a bit, but we drove up to Chicago for a concert back in July. We only stayed one night. About how far away is that? 2 or 3 hours or so? Lol, it was my very first time on a toll road. Stopping every 5 minutes sure is fun!
I'm doing good. How's college treating you? We were in your neck of the woods a couple of months ago (sort of). I did quite a bit of fishing before it went down and kept expecting you to pop in, so school must be keeping you pretty busy!
