Interests
So my day in court could have been better.  I've been paying $600 a month in child support for two children.  In 2009, we decided to try to move closer to the kids so we could all have closer relationship (all as in me, my wife and my third child). My ex-wife took advantage of the move and quickly established a jurisdiction change (previously Oklahoma) to California.  The day in court came and went and starting February of 2015, I've been ordered to pay $1868 a month, three times the previous amount.  I asked and pleaded and even when questioning how I would visit my children (I live 3 hours away, I'm military and it's the closest I could get), the answer the commissioner gave me was "It is what it is".  Those words will forever echo in my head. Our justice system is more corrupt and biased than I had imagined and the only answer I received was "It is what it is".  So it's time to press forward.  What choice is there?  We can't give up.  A few lifestyle changes are coming, but I feel like we can still achieve things and meet goals.

I start today by changing my profile name to something a bit more professional, which required me to finally purchase a DeviantArt account! Well...at least until Feb 2015.  It's time to start "networking"...I'm not sure how to "network" but I'll learn eventually, yes?

And I'm more than ready to do some commissioned artwork...I know I could use the practice, the joy of creation, and a little bit of extra $$$, amirite!

Just watched the Wolverine and... it is my new favorite X Men movie! It is close with X2 though, but it was amazing!
