Hello once again, StP community!

I haven't been online here in over a year, but recent circumstances in my life indicate that it might be a good time to reacquaint myself. My name is Thomas Walker, age 21. I live in Indiana and attend (?) a fairly prestigious university. My grades are borderline failing right now, and I'm not sure I'll be able to secure the funds to continue even if I do manage to scrape by. The way I see it, I have had an interest in hopping trains for the last few years, and if my current career aspirations become impossible to achieve, this would be one of the only fulfilling lifestyles I could think of.

I may make this into a separate post in a different section, but I'm also starting to think about learning a new instrument along the way. I already have experience with ukulele, piano, and trombone, but the only instrument from that list that is small enough to port would be the ukulele, and I'm not sure if one could stand the rigors of constant rough-living. I would be open to suggestions on small durable instruments to try and learn.

Anyways, I guess I'll just continue to more-or-less lurk around here until I can learn enough to safely hop a train. Stay safe out there my friends.

Common sense goes along way. I hope you can pull your grades up. You're young and have a great opportunity. Either way, welcome back!

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$25.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $25.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $25.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $25.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $25.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
