Looking at some options that are out there. I am a recent "regular" addition to society now that I'm out of the military. Looking at finishing my music education degree. Ironically, even though I was a Marine for what seemed like forever, I always knew that I wanted to teach music. So, here I am, using my little pan, seeing what little gold nuggets drop my way.

Peace, J.
