hey brian, this is alex. long time no see. it's good to hear that u're doing good, still with that girl and got ur first electric gaiter. right now, i'm going to school and doing pretty good. so far i've gotten all As' in my classes and learning alot. however, it's just basic classes so i haven't gotten to the hard stuff yet. the next classes i'm going to be taking are professional writting and pre-calculus. the way i'm doing things is different then the way most schools do things. i'm only taking 2 classes at a time but it's only for 8 weeks just to let u know. well, i have off of school for a week and it's almost over. after this sunday i'll have to go back to school work so i hope u read this before the weeks up. I haven't had that much time to do much with school, work here and there and my ffxi addiction. the ffxi addiction is more of me helping others in the ls events and i've FINALLY gotten to the point where it's just like why do i play this thing anymore. but, i've done alot in it and learned alot of how a mmorpg works. there's some very interesting ppl on there both good and bad, and considering what i'm going to school for it's really a good thing. well, hope to hear from u and anyone else soon. i'm going to try to be on here more and would like to talk to u guys and see how everyone is doing, but i'm not going to be on here on that often. i'm going to try to be on here at least once a week but we'll see what happens :/.
