Life After Summer

So as I ponder, I am not sure what to do with it. Set a trap and kill it? Let it live its life in the wonderful home it's built for itself? Or wait until Groundhog Day and see how much longer the winter will be? Who knows if that even works. Maybe it's just folklore.

I think I'll find out.

School.

I am in college right now, taking online classes. This isn't a blog entry as much as it is a disclaimer. I recommend everyone seriously consider furthering their education. The best jobs oftentimes require four-year degrees. It's much to my dismay that I never got mine. Honestly, wrestling in Japan and TNA has given me the time of my life, but my greatest fear is that that life doesn't have a whole helluva a lot going on after wrestling. I wish I had that safety net, I wish I had that security, and I wish I wasn't kept up at night wondering about my future past the age of 30.

But I am, so I deal with it, and part of that is making sure I take classes when I can. It's not easy, but it makes me feel like I'm proactive and doing something with my life other than destroying my body and wasting time. Unlike others, I don't necessarily need or want the adoration of fans. Don't get me wrong, it's awesome that they give us their support and they're a necessity for everything we do. If no one watched me wrestle, then what's the point? It's like a tree falling in the forest. However, the idolization I could do without, because I feel there's better heroes out there, like firefighters or parents, or doctors. 

Sometimes, I don't want anyone to look up to me, and I wonder what a normal life would be like.
