Hello, all! After going through some major crises in my life and still struggling to find a way to successfully get the course I wish for my life to go in, working, I am looking to add new people to my friends-list. In many ways, my journal is a combination of stress-clearing, meme-posting, soul-searching, writing of erotic prose, other writing, and a place to just get things off of my chest. Some of you may have known me under a different name - that of
</a></b></a>dark_tsquall. Others of you may know me by the pseudonym I have used for years in writing fanfiction, TacomaSquall.
My journal is an outlet for many of the things that I cannot show in my real life, where I am currently forced to be the rock of stability in my marriage. As such, there is angst a-plenty within its entries. More than anything else - what I desire is support as I continue through the most difficult stretch of my life.
Some basic facts about me:
I'm a 37-year-old male.
I'm married, with a four-year-old son and another who is one year old.
Sadly, my marriage is (and has been for a long time) in a difficult place.
I'm a long-time resident of the Pacific Northwest who was transplanted to the Northern Great Plains in 2004, and has yet to fully recover from the uprooting.
I'm at a major crossroads in my life, and am unsure where my path will lead in the future.
I'm a passionate fan of (in no particular order) music (with a wide and eclectic preference), writing (I have dabbled for more than 25 years), science and fantastic fiction, reality TV, big-budget cinema, romanticism, professional wrestling, and comic books.
I do want to caution you that some of the posts in this journal are of a very adult nature, and detail facts of the very difficult place I find myself in. I am not perfect, and my marital difficulties have been extreme – and many of my difficulties have their seeds in things that I have done, not anyone else. To allow people who wish to see some faets of my life and journal but not all the freedom to do so, I do use filters to control which people see which posts. The majority of posts of a personal nature are filtered or friends-only.
I own the choices I have made and their consequences, and I am struggling with the inequities of a marriage with someone who wants to go down a different path than I, in life.

If this sounds interesting - come on by and give my journal a look! Hopefully, you'll stay for awhile!
