the weather machines

After a long and redundant week of work and class, the weekend has finally arrived. I was going to write a longer post about the dream I had last night, but I don’t have the time tonight. I’ll save it for some time this weekend, maybe before I knock out a project due for one of my classes.

I find it a little odd how the weather has been optimal on the weekends but has been extra cold during the week. I blame the government weather machines. Peace out.

the constants

I look forward to Tuesdays with this current schedule. Tuesday is the day of week surrounded by my work+class days. When I return home, I don’t just have to spend the few hours after work to unwind before class. Having the whole afternoon and the entire evening is a delight amongst life’s busy schedule.

I have an eye exam scheduled on Saturday. I’ve heard that eye exams should be done annually, but my last exam was September of 2007. I quickly sifted through these pages and found the post to prove it. My vision has deteriorated enough again to get this long overdue eye exam.

I think M&I will be going to Logan’s for dinner. 2 can dine for 13.99 is calling our names after Wheel of Fortune. Peace out.

the autopilot

The start of the work week returned this morning. My two alarms woke me up multiple times as usual. I snapped out of bed and got ready for work as usual. I worked my eight hours and took my two breaks at their usual times.

I ran a couple errands after work, relaxed a bit at home, then went to class. I got a haircut at a new place for the first time in over five years and enjoyed a free hot & juicy cheeseburger from Wendy’s with a purchase of a small order of fries and a small drink. I could taste the difference, but it’s not too far from what they had before. The meal was still tasty, and I’ll probably end up using the three other coupons I scored for freebies.

I sat through class and had a moment of hilarity as I watched a guy that sits in front of me pull up a No Limit film on Netflix called Hot Boyz. I had to bite my tongue to prevent myself from bursting out laughing. Then footage was a thug on a high-speed chase maneuvering the streets while calamity ensued. Seeing this guy stream Netflix and sitting through the lecture was a juxtaposed. That was the funniest part of my day.

Now I’m on here wrapping up my online chores and looking forward to breakfast for dinner prepared by my valentine. Peace out.

the big game sunday

During the first few quarters, I took a long nap and finished my project for my online class. The project only took me less than half an hour. I wish I had caught all the Super Bowl commercials as they aired, because it’s not the same to just stream them all from an online list. I caught the last quarter and some of the commercials.

This super relaxing weekend is nearing its end. I already want the next one to arrive. Regardless, I’m ready for the grind. I’m adjusted to balance class with work, so I should be able to get through this week before I know it’s over. Peace out.

the case of the tuesdays

Hello February,

Tuesdays are OK. The Spring semester is in full swing, and I’m taking my last couple classes for a while. I still work the full-time job and will be hitting the two-year mark at my current employer this month. I’m not sure how much longer I’ll be employed at my current job, and I think about it every time when I’m clocked in and devoted to them for eight hours of the day. The economy seems to be getting better, and I’m almost done with this round of education so I’m looking forward to moving on when the time and situation is right.

Mondays and Wednesdays are when I have to physically be in an institution attending class. The other course is being taken online. Fortunately, Mondays and Wednesdays are earlier in the week because it helps them fly by. I don’t particularly enjoy Mondays and Wednesdays right now, but this current schedule will be over before I know it.

M started her real world career in January since she graduated in December. I’m glad she has Saturdays and Sundays off now.

Life’s been good. Peace out.

the december decrescendo

December is already halfway over?! December 25th is only 8 days away?! 2010 is over in less than two weeks? Time definitely flies when you stay busy. I haven’t updated this at all this month and it’s almost already gone by.

This past week has been the first week in months where I did not attend any class. Thank goodness this semester is over. Thank goodness I don’t have to deal with the evening MoPac traffic on Tuesday and Thursday just to be physically present for a class I learned next to nothing in. I’m glad I survived. I’m very content with the progress I made and how I managed to do well and maintain my full-time day job without any issues.

I adore the idea of gift-shopping online. I also love free shipping to the receivers of the gift. With gas prices nearing $3/gallon again, traveling by automobile can dent the wallet a bit more usual.

My goddaughter is getting a Chicco DJ baby walker for her first Christmas. She’s going to make the best flower girl I could ever ask for.

the monday after bliss

This mandroid was rebooted this morning after four days offline. I woke up around 6am, actually rolled out of bed and into the lunch-preparing/showering/dressing for work groove around 6:25am. The five-day lather/rinse/repeat routine has returned for a little bit, and I look forward for the December holidays to arrive.

Tasks get done one after the other, some later than expected but done at least. I’ve learned over the years not to conjure up ideas that don’t get followed through because time and resources get wasted and the unfortunate result of leaving others hanging can result in being known as someone with many ideas but not nearly enough completed. I’m happy to say that’s not me. Food for thought: Don’t say you will when you eventually won’t.

I do my best to take on projects that I will follow through to the most optimal level. If they failed to reach the planned completion, then they will at least be given their fair share of time to be reviewed carefully to conclude if the efforts will result in a lost cause, if the required time and energy is too expensive for the desired output, or if I signed up for something I feel I am mostly incapable of accomplishing at the given point in time.

I’m filled with anticipation for 2011 to roll around. The Spring semester is the conclusion of my educational enhancement for the time being, and I will have some time and resources freed up to be more prolific with all the excess wading around that I’m not going to bother to taking along.

MoSo: 4 years and running. Peace out.
