this happened 3 days after my birthday so i don't exactly have the best memories when my birthday comes around each year. i boozed it hard & did lots of drugs & still to this day i have no idea why i stayed ironworking. i was making $14/hr then & went back to work a few days later but eventually asked for a layoff within a week. i turned my life around in 2006 & started travelling. i haven't celebrated my birthday in over 10 years because it's never a happy time for me not because i'm getting older. it's those memories that i'm reminded of every year & actually my grandmother died 2 days after my birthday as well so it's kind of a depressing time for me. i enjoy my travels & concerts. all these natural disasters the last few years always remind me what is important...i'm still alive & am very thankful for that & i hope everyone else makes it through this hurricane & any other disasters unscathed. you can replace materials but you can't replace a life.
