It was an exact year ago that I heard those fateful words uttered "....I'm sorry to do this, but I'm going to have to let you go..." and with that I lost my job and eventually had to leave San Diego, which ironically changed my life forever. One would have never thought that something considered a incalculable mistake could prove to be so useful and lead one down a better path. If I had remained in San Diego I would have acquired a Masters degree in social work rather than a Masters in Industrial Organizational Psychology, or what I hope to get. How did I come to this realization; my current job tells me that I do not want to be in the mental health field for the rest of my life, although I am certain that I will make use of those skills during my life at some point. That's besides the point though. Anyways. So life at my new place is going wonderfully, and the interior is slowly coming together quite lovely. Between all the things I have to do for my pending graduate program, my job, and getting everything together at my new place I have had absolutely no time to write or continue my editing of Book II, which is supremely irritating, but life is what it is. At any rate, it is something I plan on getting back to doing once everything gets settled. Moving on. Lots of crazy stuff has been happening in the world, but what I would like to point out is Edward Snowden; the whistle-blower who alerted the press to how the U.S. government was spying on its citizens without warrants. There are some that believe that releasing this fact is a blow to U.S. national security, and President Obama has said that you cannot have 100% freedom with 100% security. He is correct, but I would rather err on having too much freedom, and less security rather than the other way around. After all, great tyrants like Napoleon, Hitler, and Caesar did what they did in the name of national security, so you can see my dilemma. Not one of those men believed themselves evil for the decisions they made, but in retrospect everyone can agree that they became the ultimate evil. So I would like to say thank you, Mr. Snowden for your courage and showing the American people something they should have known from the beginning of what their government was up to. As for the world of entertainment, I watched the season finale of Game of Thrones Season 3 last night and I have to say that I wasn't that impressed by any stretch of the imagination with how it ended, the previous season finale was much better. Overall I believe season 3 started out far superior to season 2, but that season ended far better than the third one. In short, I will continue watching the show just to see how it ends, but I have to admit that I don't really care for it whatsoever. It's a fascinating world with compelling characters, but the storylines suck. Oh well. That's it for now. Goodnight and good luck.
