Default Im back.....never really left, just busy

Some of you might remember me, some not...hopefully most with thoughts of joy and not disdain But I am back to the forum after a few months away. I have been the busiest guy in the world these past few months, I have come back a few times to check on you guys, and try and keep up with all the new cars you guys keep buying and selling...which is pretty tough. As a few of you may rememebr I spent the last few months selling cars, which left me very little time for personal time. What none of you know is the other reasons. Well lets start by my whirlwind romance with my new fiance. We met in September on Match.com LOL, pretty wierd for me, but not the first time ive met someone off that site (met my ex there too LOL) Well on Christmas eve I gave her the ring with all the bling (which incidentally is why the Chevelle on my sig line now say [formerly] Love makes us do funny things. The car business was good for a few months till winter hit then it drted right up, so the money all went away. OUCH. I decided to start going to night school to pursue a possible degree in elementary education, after some long talks with my fiance (then girlfriend) she just happens to be in her last semster for getting her masters in counseling phsycology and one of her minors is in vocational counseling so she helped me find out what my likes and dislikes are, I found out that cars should really be more of a hobby for me and less of a cause for stress. I have now spent about 8 years in the car business in service sales and management, I think its time for me to teach some of what ive learned to a younger generation, so my major will likely be business influenced, although I may choose history. Anyways I quit the car sales biz, and just landed a manager job at the local Tires Plus, I was a shoe in for the job with all the experiance Sears Auto Center gave me. I am excited about the job because it will put me back in a positive cashflow situation LOL but also because Tires Plus does alot of custom work. So it will be the perfect job to get me through school, so I can become a teacher and take a 10k a year pay cut LOL.......but 3 months off a year :P

Anywayz just thought id check in and let yall know a little about whats been hap nin with me
