About Me
Well, here I am. I'm back at school once again. And darn happy to be here too. I'm pretty nervous about what will happen, but I'd be more afraid of what I missed if I didn't challenge myself. Truck driving was interesting and I think I can safely say that it gave me an opportunity to investigate a point of view that is not shared by a majority of people I deal with today, or people I will deal with tomorrow. I'm pretty much just rambling on at this point, and this page will eventually be about me, but for now, I'm just too busy figuring out who I am to write about who I was...

The Road Not Taken

by Robert Frost

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood
and sorry I could not travel both
to be one traveler long I stood
and looked down one as far as I could
to where it bent in the undergrowth

Then took the other, as just as fair
for having perhaps the better claim
because it was grassy, and wanted wear
though as for that, the passing there
had worn them really about the same

Both that morning equally lay
in leaves no feet had trodden black
Two roads diverged in the woods and I
I took the road less traveled by
And that has made all the difference

Stopping by the woods on a snowy evening

by Robert Frost

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village, though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
