1. I was living in England.
  2. I had gone to Oxford University.
  3. I was thinking about what the hell I wanted to do with my life.
  4. I was going to be graduating from University of Oregon shortly.
  5. I missed my friends and family.
  6. I was madly in love with my girlfriend at the time.
  7. I wasn't sure if we'd stay together, because she often chose drugs and booze over me.
  8. I listened to grunge. A LOT of grunge.
  9. I decided that I didn't want to go to grad school. The decision was going to piss off a lot of people, but I knew in my gut that I was right.
  10. Also, I didn't SEXT. That would come later.
