Thanks for your concern, guys. I'm just expressing a general dissatisfaction with my life and the amount of work I need to do to change it. The silver lining is that facing it and doing something about it is the only way to grow. In other words, no pain, no gain.
The part that is somewhat related to the avatar change is also the part that I trust will resolve itself the quickest. But it's composed of many interwoven strands (some today sporting a crimson Chanel logo).
