  • I walked outside earlier today and sat on a concrete block, looking around at the surroundings just thinking about life. What does it mean for me to be alive, what makes it worth the struggle, and have I accomplished something so far. I started to list the good in my life and how that might compare to others and what most people try to get out of life. My job is great, I go into work most everyday in a good mood and I like what I accomplish when I am there. I fly on delta for free anywhere in the world. I have trips planned this years to go places around the world. Then I realized that none of that really matters, and that I would be happy and feel totally accomplished if I could keep one thing in my life. That is my beautiful, and amazing girlfriend Jessie Miller. I realized that this girl loves me totally and completely, and I know that there is nothing she wouldn't do for me. That is the moment I knew beyond any doubt that I want to spend my entire life with her, and to only make her happy and smile for the rest of our lives... I am going to bring Jessie to her favorite place in the world, and I am going to ask her to marry me.
