1. Game rained out today, and, for the first time all season, I decided not to try to string some sort of a practice together in the weight room or back hallways. Last week was a six-day baseball week, and this week also could have been as well (we have another makeup game on Saturday), so I just cancelled it all. I went home at 2:30 and took a nap, and it felt great.
2. I waited tables last night, making about $65. I have told the owner that I plan on not working there next school year, so, in effect, that's my 3-month notice or so. And I'm getting so excited about having weekends back for the first time in five years... it feels like my life is starting up again. Most of the people who know me here in Baltimore only have known me as someone who works two jobs and is way too busy.
3. My credit card debt is now hovering at a few thousand, and I expect to have it all paid off within weeks, what with my coaching money coming in as well as the tax rebate. It once was five digits, and then I paid it almost all down, and then I brought it back up a bit when I had to pay for graduate courses with plastic. But I'm feeling more financially secure than I ever have before right now. I have several thousand dollars in savings (well, *3* counts as several, right?), plus my credit cards are almost paid off, and... yes... this summer I plan on diving right into the home buying process. Hopefully by the end of 2008, I will have a house, one job, a new car, and 40 lbs off my midsection.
4. This is my favorite song of the moment - "Scar That Never Heals" by Jeremy Fischer. Guitar pop, sort of like Paul Simon, and so damn catchy.
Truth Jolt - Russell Brand, now embarking on his “Messiah Complex” tour, has now been officially and completely forgiven for Arthur. He’s 100% redeemed and then some. P...
