2015-7: Degree: Check. Wife: Check. Career: Check. House: Check. That about takes care of the easy stuff, now for the challenge.

2013-1: Times change. Wounds heal, only to be torn open again with renewed vigor. I just keep pressing that reset button, though. School continues, with an expected graduation in spring 2014 with a BS in Comp Sci, and I'm delightedly engaged to the woman who helps me push forward. For the site, registrar and host has switched. Still not hosting it myself anymore, but it's in good hands. HJPmusic.com was moved as well and is getting a facelift, and all new in 2013: MrPotter.us

2010-09: Life as a full time student starts. Better late than never.
