Yesterday I re-posted a piece from May of 2011 call Requiem Of Failure: My Old Me. As I stated in the beginning of that post, re-posting is not something that I have done a lot of here on Shell Shock Serenade. For one reason is that I never really had any issue coming up with something to write so I didn't need to use old posts as "filler".
The second main reason was that this blog is supposed to follow my daily life, not keep going back over it. But I think It is helpful to post these little bits from the past because they give perspective to whats happening today. It helps to understand the past when you are trying to understand the present...I know, written by a true history guy!
