Why does my dog not like me?!
When I was in middle school, I was really into art.
I was an excellent drawer.
I loved making art.
Then, high school happened.
Art stopped happening.
What I didn’t realize at the time was that it wasn’t just art that stopped happening.
Art wasn’t just something I was good at, it was also something I was obsessed with.
I had become obsessed with art.
I had been good at art, but I was obsessed.
In my senior year of high school, my art teacher, Mr. Stromberg, suggested I try out for the local high school art show.
Mr. Stromberg knew I loved art, so he took it upon himself to give me a chance.
He wrote a nice letter about me to the committee of the art show.
He told them about all of my wonderful talents and skills.
Then, he told them I was obsessed with art.
I knew the art committee would never refuse to let me try out for the show, and that it would be the greatest thing that had ever happened to me.
After Mr. Stromberg’s letter was rejected by the art committee, I became really angry.
Why would they turn down a guy like me?
I felt very rejected.
But I was also very angry at myself.
Why would I have become so obsessed with art?
That really wasn’t my thing.
I wasn’t a natural artist.
I just liked making stuff.
Making art was really just a means to an end.
So, the real question was, what was the point of making all of these drawings and paintings?
Why not just spend my time doing something I loved, like hanging out with my friends?
The problem was, there was no time for hanging out with my friends.
I had too much time on my hands.
And while I made my drawings and paintings, I also ate some junk food.
Not a big deal.
I had done it before.
It was part of my everyday routine.
It was easy to rationalize.
I’d just do something I loved for a few hours and then eat junk food during that time.
I didn’t actually become a junk food junkie, though.
My friends didn’t allow me to eat junk food.
They knew about my bad eating habits and wouldn’t let me hang out with them anymore.
I felt so bad that I started having a tough time staying out of the grocery store.
It was only a matter of time before I started buying food for myself.
And the more I bought, the more it became a part of my everyday routine.
I also started having problems remembering to feed my animals.
And it took a long time for me to stop.
I was so caught up in making my art, I didn’t pay attention to what I was doing.
I stopped listening to my conscience and learned to ignore my desires.
And one day, the only person who could tell me to stop it was me.
So I made a decision that if I was going to stop, it was going to have to be a huge life change.
In order to change, I would need to have a life goal that I could focus on and stay with until I reached it.
I decided I wanted to be a professional artist.
The most important thing that I could do would be to study.
I would have to study art in college, take art classes, and spend a lot of money.
But I was determined to make it work because if I did, it would mean that my dream had a real chance of becoming a reality.
And so I started studying.
With my hard work, I started going to school in the fall.
I had classes through the spring, and the whole summer until I graduated in May 2000.
But I didn’t do well at school, so it didn’t take me long to realize that maybe I should start thinking about doing something else.
At first, I thought that I would try teaching.
But I had a horrible fear of the public, so teaching was out.
So I looked into other jobs.
As the days went by, I didn’t like what I was hearing.
Everyone that I talked to was telling me that it was time to go back to doing what I was doing before I dropped out.
My thoughts were starting to come to me clearly.
I told myself that I needed to make a decision right now.
I needed to make a plan to start a different life, or I was going to be living off of my parents for the rest of my life.
There was no question in my mind that I needed to change.
And so I did.
When I dropped out, I was doing everything on my own, by myself.
I made decisions on my own.
Now, for the first time in a very long time, I was going to do something that I had never done before.
So I went to the library and started reading about everything that I could think about doing.
I looked into computers, and then I found out about web design.
I looked into web design and programming, and then I found out that I had to take an on-line web design course.
I looked into web design and I found out how to make a website.
I then started to teach myself about web design and programming.
It wasn’t the greatest course in the world, but I’m not a real genius or anything.
So I studied at home every day after work.
And I started to put up my first website.
I created a website that was just about me, and I started to blog on it.
I then looked into marketing, and so I found out what businesses need.
And when I found out what businesses needed, I was looking for ways to put myself in a position where I could sell to them.
So I started to get serious about how I was going to do this.
But there was still a lot of decisions to be made.
I had to decide what type of product I was going to sell.
So I started to study.
And I read about business.
I was learning everything about sales.
And I was learning everything about marketing.
I was doing everything that I could to be able to build a business.
Then I decided that I wanted to build something that I could be proud of.
I started to look into programming.
I looked into a web design course.
I was talking to a few different companies, trying to decide what kind of business I was going to be part of.
It wasn’t easy.
Because, at that time, I was just starting to learn the game.
I was still not really good at it.
I had just started out, and I was struggling.
So I started to study.
And I started to talk to people that were more experienced than me.
And it’s all about people and trust.
People trust you to
