    – (2015, We have also been doing well enough at the screen-printing shop to pay me a small but generous sum.)
    -Reach out to my peers- “You only get out what you put in”…

    Lots of things going on….

    The PLP is a ‘living document’ — in that it can change / modify over time depending on what Life is tossing you and how you may see your ‘future goals’ change as you grow. How far along are you on all this since you wrote it up in September last?


    Hey all :D

    Got some stuff in the works right now that has been keeping me away- summer is just such a bright period of extroversion!!!

    Working on wrapping up my apprenticeship at TOTJO, and have been working on some clerical stuff over there; crossing my fingers.

    Also wrapping up my finalized ‘The Jedi Path Course’ for this fall semester drop date in a few weeks.

    So I’ll be returning to my PLP shortly- just didn’t want ya to think I fell of the face of the earth! :silly: :side: :blink: :silly: :side: :blink:
