Adding to the last post, I want to emphasize how serious I am.  This blog is not intended to be cathartic, I do not need to air my crap to the world just to do it, I am not looking for sympathy.  Instead, I am hoping to document the very concrete steps I’m taking to achieve very specific objectives and, through the act of documentation, actually increase the likelihood of success.

“I plan on going to my own funeral” is not a euphemism or symbolic. I mean it literally.
