Lately I've been on a roller coaster ride of ups and downs. I try to get the best out of everything and try even harder to have fun all of the time. But it seems to get harder to do the older I get. I feel as if I'm missing out on all the things that I should be doing. Society tells me that I'm a "loser", a single man in his 30's with a "job" not a career. And lately that's the way I've been feeling. And this hurts really bad...I've never let society or ANYONE make me feel bad about myself and I've never felt depressed.

Rock Band 2 - Just a fun game with great music.
Gears of War 2 - The new multiplayer game. I've enjoyed the little bit I've played so far. The Horde multiplayer option was amazing!
And last... A new president! Barack Obama will take over in January and I can't wait. This man offers us a change from the last 8 years. Not just a change but a GREAT change. I have faith in him and I hope he lives up to the potential that the voters saw in him.
TO BOLDLY EXPLORE THE ORIGIN OF UTOPIA PLANITIA - Utopia Planitia loosely translated means the plain of paradise. In 1976 NASA's space probe Viking 2 scored a touchdown on planet Mars on September 3rd. Thi...
