Its been almost three years since I graduated High School and its funny how things keep changing and changing. On Tuesday, Heather and I will have been together for over a year. We've got a house and a baby due in March. I realized a long time ago I can never go back and sometimes I realize I don't know where I'm headed but I do know one thing.

I can make it.

It kind of feels like I'm Jack Bauer walking onto the set of Season 6. A lot of people from the beginning are gone now and a whole bunch of new characters are around. Unfortunately, they're not as cool as my Navy cast or the Old School Crew. That crew consisting of Tim, Bobby, Vince & Brian. Hopefully though, things will change. Right now, I just need to get through this next hurdle. Even Jack Bauer has to go it alone sometimes.

Fortunately, my Chloe O'Brian is the hot and lovely Heather Koski. Shame, she and Morris are having a baby, Jack and Chloe would have been an awesome match. Anyways, things turn upside down in the event of a year. If I get my way, this summer will be a new experience and hopefully I can hit up some of my old friends.

I really wish I could do something non-canon and have all my favorites team up for some adventure. I need to reclaim my writing ability. I've got the worse and it won't die. I'm not going to give up. I'm going to be like Robert Neville. Last one standing but I'm never going to give them the satisfaction of seeing me die.

This is a journey, this is an adventure. I'm excited to see what the future holds. I can't wait to raise Claire and train her. I think I can set her up better than I was so she won't have these problems. I realize one thing I want to do, is give her enough money to go on one big adventure when she graduates high school. I think everyone should go out and see the world for themselves at least once.

Claire Jillian Hall

Don't forget that name. I think I'm going to be a good dad. I'm not going to be hovering but, I'm not going to be in the shadows either. I want to teach her everything I know. I want her to take information and decipher it. This information age has brought on a ton of new problems. One, how do we know the information is true and who supplied the information, for what purpose?

She's got to be on the top of her game if she wants to make it in today's world. I'm going to see to that.

I can do only so much but, hey, its 2008 and I'm going on 22. She'll be 18 when I turn 40 which means one thing. I'm going to be in peak condition when she's of age to battle the robots. Something big and climatic is definitely coming, I want Claire to be ready for it. I'll fight as much as I can but, its going to be a whole effort. On the plus side, my nephew Curtis is turning 2 so I can train him to be a soldier in my private army.

Who knows, maybe we'll have to retake Washington D.C. someday? If the next eight years look like the last eight, we're headed for bad times and bad times quickly. Either way, I'm going to keep rising to the occassion. I'm not going to back down from a challenge of this caliber. The future is a dark and mysterious time.

For now, I have my Heather and my friends. So am I going to sweat too much about the fate of the world?

Probably not.

Anyways, things are what you make them. You either watch your situation deterioate or you do something to repair things. So the question is, how far are you willing to go?
