    Its kinda snuck up on me.

    I remember like it was yesterday, sitting in earth science class, at a desk by myself, just a year or so from graduating, wanting it to be over already. A younger girl running late to class grabs the only seat left, next to me. She's cute but hey I'm already with someone and planning to get engaged a little bit after I graduate.

    The rest of my time at school goes fast; I become friends with the girl next to me in E.S. class. We had flirted a bit but we are both with people we love nothing wrong with joking around.

    I just got off the phone with my now ex-fiancée, how did I know from more then half way across the country she slept with someone else that night. Man I hate my dreams.

    I almost died today. I was tired of life, but something stopped me last second from driving into the telephone pole. I don't know what but I'm glad. An old friend called she broke up with her fiancé after he admitted cheating on her. I can understand what that’s like.

    Just had my first real first date, besides blowing a tire on the way to the restaurant and then my battery dying after dropping her off at her car, I think it went well. We shall see.

    I'm moving out on my own finally, well kind of my GF needed to get away from her parents as much as I so we got a place together. Wonder how long it will last.

    I can believe I'm getting married today after what happened last time I never would have thought it would happen.

    I'm going to be a dad?

    Today, I'm alive, I've been married 5 years, and my son is one month old... All thanks to a cute girl who was running late to class. Its amazing how one person and one small event can change your life.

    it's amazing, when you look back at the string of things that had to happen in order for you to get where you are now.
