Well I'm goin' to California
Where they sleep out every night
I'm goin' to California
Where they sleep out every night
I'm leaving you, mama
'Cause you know you don't treat me right

Let me tell you somethin'
Mama, that you don't know
Let me tell you somethin'
Good gal, that you don't know
Well, I'm a do right papa
And got a home everywhere I go

Yeah
I got the California blues and I'm
Sure gonna leave you here
Lord, Lord
I got the California blues and I'm
Sure gonna leave you here

I may ride the blind
I aint got no railroad fare
Listen to me, mama
While I sing this song
Listen to your daddy
Sing you this lonesome song

You got me wearied now
But I won't be wearied long
I got the California blues and I'm
Sure gonna leave you here

Hey, hey, hey
I got the California blues and I'm
Sure gonna leave you here
I may ride the blind
I aint got no railroad fare

I've got emergency numbers if I need to holler at anyone on here. I haven't had the money to make repairs on my transmission, so this trip should be interesting. I am driving south through Memphis, Little Rock, Amarillo, Albuquerque and Vegas on my way back west.

Many mistakes were made when I did this 2 years ago. Many painful lessons were learned. Many bridges, demolished. I am a wiser man, and I look forward to seeing you all on the other side.

I'll be linking a photo stream of the trip so you can at least derive some entertainment.

Unless I want to work my way up to supervise a drafting department for a tool and die company, I need to move where my hardwork and determination will be rewarded.

I wanted to design buildings when I was 9 years old. I listened to counselors in High School tell me it was a waste of time. I'm paying out my ass for the education. I'm going to design buildings.

On topic with you're thread title. Sometimes I feel I have no destiny, no greater goal, no purpose. I don't think I'm depressed, just lacking a reason for being. At work I play the cheerful game and people think I am just the happiest person alive, but inside I know its just a game.
How do you keep going after all the hardships you've been though? What drives you on?

I've had a goal since I was little kid, to design buildings. I've had a lot of my plans go wrong and a lot of people tell me to give it up.

It's my passion, and it drives to succeed. I was blessed with discovering this early in my life. I know others don't always get to this point in life, but I am happy to have found it.

Look at the things you love to do, talk to others who share the interest and come up with a way to work doing that so you never work a day in your life. Life isn't about being wealthy, powerful, or famous. Life is about being happy and using your passions to make the world a better place. The journey is long, and you always get sidetracked, lost and frustrated. We learn lessons, accept ourselves, and move on as we gain wisdom over knowledge.

I fall back on my faith in a Creator and trust that I will do what I need to do in this life.
