Wow… there is so much going on. There are a lot of things I can’t tell all of you yet, but it will all come out in a couple weeks. But pretty much, my world is being turned upside down. It’s not personal problems… it’s about drifting. Things are changing so quickly… we are all taking a huge step… and there’s no going back. For me, I’m overwhelmed by the opportunity, the lack of opportunity, politics, competition, the question of cost/dedication/purpose. I was asked this morning if I think I’m confident in my skills as a driver in comparison to others… this, to me, covers a broad range of “others” from beginners to D1 drivers. How do I answer that? Is there some sort of meter that defines your drifting skill from 0-100? I wish I could disclose the craziness that I’m going through right now, but if I did, it would upset a lot of people. For now, let me just tell you that I’m thinking about things that I never thought I would be (or should be) thinking about right now, and I’m going to be experiencing things that I never thought I would experience. I feel so awkward about things, I think that sometimes I’m jumping in over my head or setting myself up for drowning in unchartered waters. And to think… this is only a small portion of my life! I still have a girlfriend that I love so much, her daughter that teaches me things everyday, and a future that I’m trying to plan for… and a car that is sitting there broken! Wish me luck with coping with the stress… I’ll write again soon.
