    thank you dr magic - i have to say it hurts my heart to hear you say "stuck in south shores" - I wont be presumptuous about your current situation - but I will say that perhaps its a feeling of stuck but not stuck. we are only a step away from our dreams and that step is called First. most ppl dream but do nothing with them - i was told a few years ago (mind you im atheist) but i was told "god doesnt show you things that are impossible, he shows you things that are possible for you" so i took the god part out and applied it to my life. i never allow a set amount of money stop me getting where I want to go. even now - i wish i had a lot more money when I leave chicago but i dont - im 100% certain there is money where i am headed and i will just pick up where i left off. that is my belief and what i follow in spite of how people may object. all that to say - you are not stuck - you probably just feel stuck. anyone else who may feel "stuck" i will refer you to the author andy andrews The Noticer -

  • Brian McCarthy Waiting for the Sequel to the Big Lebowski

    I've tried this Chipotle twice and have been shocked at the food handling. This is a shortcoming at many of the Chipotle locations - they seem to have neglected basic staff training on this issue. I'm staying away from this one.
