Let me know when you do, my man. I'll go ahead and give you my info, otherwise I'll be damned if I don't forget or suddenly stop coming here again. We're both wanting a better place, but that is also a discussion for a different time. I'd certainly be interested to hear the saga of your escape. I know more than a couple people who've found it very difficult to be free of. I will do my best to say hi, but in case I forget you can always do so yourself!
Full name: Mr. Midnight, Oidhche-Yorath

That's good to hear! I haven't spoken to you since I abandoned the IRC channels (There is a valid reason for that, if you care to know), last I ever remember hearing from you you were in some military program learning a language of some sort. Judging from your words now, I assume much has changed!
As for myself, I'm getting along fairly well. Better than I ever did a year and a half ago. Though I will admit, I am not satisfied and strive for more. Topaz and I are getting along wonderfully, we've been living together now for a year and 4 months now. You should check out her art some time, she's improved a lot. I'll say hi to her for you if I can remember.
Do you have Skype or some such by chance? I still use mine, and would actually talk to you unlike anyone else on this site!
